Joe Lee Hobbs was born in Young Co., Texas in 1935 he was in an out of prison most of his short life. In the early to middle 1970's, Joe Lee's last time out of prison, Joe Lee went on a bank robbing spree and was dubbed the Silk Stocking Bandit, due to the fact that he always wore a silk stocking over his head during the robberies. Joe Lee's crime spree ended in a stand-off at his home. Joe Lee decided to take his own life rather than go back to prison and shot himself in the head.

Joe Lee Hobbs was born in 1930 in Newcastle Tx. He took his own life in June 1962 in Artesia NM. If you need the correct information on Joe Lee you can contact me, Nelta Hobbs Poole, I am his sister and I live in the Houston Tx area. I am the only living child of James R Hobbs JR and Callie M Hobbs from Newcastle. ou need to check with me for correct information before anything is added to this story.

The story goes that when John H. Hobbs was approximately 15 years of age he stabbed his best friend in the back and killed him. John was sent to a juvenile correctional facitity until the age of 18. No one recalls exactly why John stabbed his best friend, but through the course of my genealogy work, I do have a clue. On April 4, 1929 a child was born to John H. Hobbs & a Gerdie Willingham. I am just guessing, but believe that Miss Willingham might have been a relative of John's best friend who's last name is reported to be Brightman or Brighten.
