Burial: Falls Cemetery, in Pendleton.


Proof: "Philip Hobaugh is listed in the DAR records as a soldier of the American Revolution. He was born in 1763 and enlisted for service in the Pennsylvania Militia. Philip saw action at Guilford and Eutaw Springs and was mustered out at old Fort Pitt in November, 1783. In July 1804 he made bounty applications as a resident of Ohio. His wife was the former Christine Huveum and known children were Molly, Michael, Elizabeth, Susannah, and Peter.

"The Hobaughs were early settlers in Fall Creek Township [Madison County}. Philip served on the 1825 Pendleton jury and is listed in the census of 1830. He died in August, 1836. His son still lived there four years later. We believe that he is buried in the old Falls Cemetery in an unmarked grave."

From American Revolutionary patriots discussed by Raymond Davis in this biography of Madison County.

Also on the enlistment rolls of the War of 1812, I found five hobaughs, brothers enlisting. Andrew, George,Soloman, Phillip Jr. and a Tambe Hobaugh who was a Choctaw Indian. I knew that Philip and his wife had a niece living with them but I did not know of this Choctaw Indian. I have both Phillip Jr. and Tambe's war records. Phillip moved to Lafayette, In. Both Phillip and wife Nancy Suit died some time before 1840. His son Nelson served with the Indiana Reg in the Civil War. He moved to Oklahoma and was in the Run of 1889. Nelson, and his sons John and Charles lived est of Noble, Oklahoma. Charles and Nelson both were in the run of 1889 and homesteaded but I think John was to young to receiver land allotment. John, my grandfather Married and lived in a Dugout on Charles Property. John got sick and died with 3 other members of the family in 1896. Nelson was one of the other who died that year. Charles's grandson, Charles Hobaugh is a Astronaut and has been flying the Shuttle ATLANTIS.

I have been trying to find some of Tambe's decendents but have yet to make any progress. His Choctaw name is Hobataamba. His Military records show that he served in Gen'l Puck-son-ab-be's Detachment under Major Uriah Blue. Later in 1816 he is with Pukshunnubbee's Company in Alabama on Russell's Campaign. This concludes Albert Hobaugh's contribution. Thanks!
