Here's what I found for you

Will of Mary Bobst - Estate File #1726
F.C. Wills & Estate Abstracts -Cases 1001-2000 p.56
Case 1726- estate of Mary Bobst of Rushville filed 1839, Administrators were Robert Paden/Patten and Daniel T. Bobst. Name mentioned Christian Bobst. Mary owned land in sec.28, twp.17,range 17 and a lot in Rushville.

FC Marriage Book- Vol1 1800-1835

p.84 - Eliza Bobst to Robert Paden 6 Oct 1825
p.68 - Elizabeth to David Wilson 31 Oct 1822
p.72 - Mary Ann to David Colwell 13 Nov 1823
all these marriages performed by Andrew Henkel/Henkess/ Herkch/Herkley (spelling all different but appears the same name)

Only one marriage after this time period in Vol.3 - p25
Mary Jane Bobst to Robert Turner 13 Oct 1852 MB2-30 ( this appears to be dtr. of Christian)

Only Cemetery records found

Rushville Pleasant Hill Cemetery (Richland Twp) p.19
Bobst - Thomas Ewing s/o Christian & Sarah d.3 Sept 1838 1yr5d
- John s/o Christian & Sarah d.3 Aug 1827 2m4d
- Daniel B s/o Christian & Sarah d.11 Nov 1832 b.9 Jan 1830
- Mary d. 27 Feb 1838 66y 9m 24d
- Anna Barbara b.4Feb 1833 d. 23 Aug 1843 10y6m19d
- Matilda M b.3 Aug 1826 d 14 Oct 1843 17y 2m 11d
- Sarah dtr. of C. & S d.23 Nov 1851 8y 10m
Paden - Thomas Bobst s/0 Robert & Eliza d.8 Sept 1828 4y4m22d
- Eliza w/o Robert d.20 Dec 1849 42y

I did a quick lookup on the census for your George Bobst and noticed he was born 1797 about. Possible that he is the George listed in the partitions abstract and brother to Daniel,Eliza,Elizabeth, Christian, Michael and Mary. Mary that died in 1839 would be his mother and marriages his siblings, but no marriage record found for him. Possible he married in other surrounding county.
The only thing I found in the obituary abstracts was for David Wilson 1885 which is as follows:

Vol3 p.7 June 13 1885 - David Wilson was born in Bedrod Co.PA on 8Sept 1797 and died in Eureka, Missouri 17 May 1885. He came to Fairfield C. OH with his parents in 1800 and maried Elizabeth Bobst on 30 Oct 1822. In 1860 they moved to Moargan Co.Missour to Tipton Missouri in 1862 and to Eureka Missouri 1880 to live with younest dtr. Mrs. A. B. Markley. He was the father of Mars. Robert Work of Fairfield Co.

Hope this helps

Sometime between 1857 and the 1860 Census in Rushville, Parents George Bobst and Wilymina (Roberts) Bobst seem to have died. In 1860 all the children are living with various different families. The families seem to be relatives of the wife. Looking for any information.
