Do you know who your Reading Cobb's parents were? I have a Reading in my family. My gggggreat grand mother was Sylvia Cobb who md Samuel Truss jr. When Reubin Cobb died he left his est. to his brothers and sisters namely:James, Reading, Mary, Charity, Martha, Elizabeth, Sylvia,and David. The name Reading was pasted down to the grand children of Sylvia. But I have not been able to find the parents. Any help will be welcome. Sue
Perhaps this is a straw in the wind, but some of you may see real connections here that can help those of us trying to get beyond the 1780's/90's in GA..

Does anyone have any information on Reuben Cobb .He was living in Pitt Co. the 1700's . he married Keziah ? I know of one child Silvira Cobb . She was living in St Claire Co. AL when she died.. Silbira married Sameul Truss Jr. any help would be appreciated.. Joy Bailey

Joy, I am beginning to work on the Cobbs of Pitt Co. NC and wanted to reply to your old message re Reuben Cobb. I don't know all the details of the family yet but can share a little with you. My information comes from the deed books of Pitt Co. Silvia Cobb who married Samuel Truss was not the daughter of Reuben Cobb. She was his sister. Deed book CC p 37-undated but prior to 1820 census. Grantor Reuben Cobb dec. Grantee: Keziah,widow James Cobb, brother(Sampson Co. NC) Reading Cobb, brother (Sampson Co) Mary Cobb, sister (Sampson Co) Charity Thomas, sister, and her husband Wm of Sampson Co. Martha Cobb, sister Elizabeth Peeden, sister and her husband Patrick Silvia Truss(Alabama), sister, and her husband Samuel Obediah Cobb, nephew(Sampson Co.) Mary McIlwain(Georgia), neice and her husband Benjamin McIlwain Rusha Cobb, neice. Note: Mary McIlwain,Rusha, and Obediah Cobb are children of Reuben's brother David who was dec'd by this time. Reuben apparently had no issue. Hope this helps. Tracy Foll
