Bio and Links
My mother got me interested in our family history in the 1970s. Since then I have been doing genealogical research on my four grandparents surnames: Cobes, Bricker, Munshower and Lefever. I love jigsaw puzzles and genealogy is one huge puzzle but oh so satisfying when the various pieces fit! I stumbled on to Find A Grave in the course of my research and really appreciated all the work the various contributors have done. As my research became more complete, I wanted to share that information with other researchers and link the families together. Find A Grave is one vehicle to do that through. In the future I hope to add obituaries to my Memorials.

RE: Cobes Connection!
Great to hear from you too! I will send you a 'private message' as an 'Edit' on one of your memorials, so I can give you my info.
Thanks and stay warm and safe!

Cobes Genealogy
Hi there Madeline,

Hope you had a lovely holiday and are having a great new year so far! I am finding the time to get back into my genealogy digging, so I thought I'd finally follow up with you regarding the family tree.

I have no genealogical info for the Cobes family, other than knowing that Jacob is my Great Grandfather. Is there a Cobes family book or such?

I'd appreciate any info and help you can give.

We are headed back down to the Blairsville area in the spring ... are there any graves you need photos of? Or anything else I can do for you when I'm down there?

Thanks for your help my distant cousin,

RE: Mickey Transfers
Hi Madeline, You're welcome...always glad to transfer to someone related. There are a lot of depressions at Cole with no headstones. The grandfather who died in the Civil War could very well be there. Good luck with your search! Barbara

John Mickey
Hi Madeline, I was glad to transfer John and Maggie Mickey to someone related. I am trying to add all memorials at Cole Cemetery and have no ties to this family. Barbara B.

RE: Martha Brendlinger's Transfer
No problem, just send each request indivually (via EDIT) so that I transfer the correct ones. Thanks.

RE: Jacob Cobes/Mae Murray Cobes
Thank you for sharing that info with me! We will be driving down from Warren, PA and hopefully will be able to get photos of their graves. Anything you want me to get while I'm there?

Howard, their son, was my Grandfather. He ended up taking the last name of Murray, as I believe he was sent to live with his Aunt and Uncle (Mae's brother & wife).

How are you related? Thanks again!
