Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a family genealogist for over 40 years and I am also a family historian. I began my genealogy journey because of my parents' large families. It was tough trying to keep all my aunts, uncles and cousins straight - I only had 41 aunts and uncles (including blood kin and by marriage) and close to 100 cousins when I was born. What started as a project to learn who belonged to whom became a curiosity to learn about the generations before. That curiosity has never waned. Happy hunting ya'll!

RE: J. Hardy Cobb
As I get deeper into this I have a few more questions. Since James Monroe Cobb was your grandfather, he wasn't actually a Cobb genetically? If so then we should do a DNA test on any male Descendants with the Cobb surname???

RE: J. Hardy Cobb
Ah, now I see that I have J. Hardy as Jesse Hardy Cobb. Reuben C. Cobb was son of Jesse N. Cobb and Martha Nix I believe.

RE: J. Hardy Cobb
Whew!! No wonder if is confusing. perhaps a good idea to change the John William Cobb to his birth name or make a note to that effect? Thanks for clearing this up for me.!

J. Hardy Cobb
Can we talk about this fellow? I see that one memorial has him as son of John William Cobb and Jelena Wactor and then his memorial as a message that he was son of Reuben Cobb and Jelena Wactor..

How can we clear this up? If he was born in 1882 or so that is 10 yrs between him and the next sibling listed as born 1893. I'm confused.. easy to be these days..

Also, it looks like the creator of the other memorial just transferred it to me instead of updating it. I'll make sure the links are done.

From what I've heard, he collapsed at work (Wal Mart, Monroe) and within 15 minutes of being taken to St. Francis Hospital, he was gone. I'm wondering why they aren't burying him with his parents in Rayville?
I'll be going to the visitation tonight after work.
