Letters and data of Dr. C.M. Hobby of Iowa City, Iowa 55
Dr. Hobby was very enthusiastic over the family history, and a great student of history. A large amount of the data sent in his letters was written from memory, and as he did not give references as to his sources of information, it has been impossible to verify much of it. Until such data has been verified it cannot be accepted as authentic, but the letters have been preserved in hope that the statements made therein can be verified at some future date.
