Patsy Faulkner (genealogy.com): James and Jaily Cobb are my ggrandparents. They lived in the Preskitt community in Wise Co., Texas. James went to LaLande, New Mexico and bought land for 10 cents an acre and died and was buried there in 1911. Jaily Ann is buried in the Preskitt Cemetery in Wise, Co., Texas. I have most ancestors of Jaily Ann STEPHENS and good info. on children thanks to a lovely cousin Ethel Dugan that keep the family together. Looking for the parents of James (Jim) Anderson COBB. If you connect or have any information, please let me know.
Barbara Dennis Sorice (genealogy.com): I have been looking for any information that I can find on my grandmother Nettie Cobb. Unfortunately I never met her or knew much about her. I do have a couple of pictures. She had to have been born at about the time of Nettie Ethyl Cobb because my dad, Marvin Dennis, was born in 1912. The Nettie I am looking for was married to Roger Q.Mills Dennis in Texas I think. She also had family in Oklahoma and Fort Worth/Dallas area. There is no one I can locate from my dad's family who can help as they are all deceased, including my father. My father had an older brother, John Melvin and a younger sister Elizabeth. If you can provide me any kind of lead I would appreciate it. This is the closest thing I can find on Nettie E. Cobb
Patsy Faulkner (genealogy.com): My Nettie Ethyl Cobb was born October 10,
1898 and died August 23 1977. She married Freddie Lee Morrison, August 21, 1913.
They were from Wise County, Texas. I wish I could help you and I will be
on the lookout for another Nettie Cobb. Good Luck.
