Obituary published in “The Americus Weekly Times-Recorder” on page 3, on 8/26/1909

“Death of Judge Cobb at home in Athens
_________

End comes to him after long illness.
_________

Jude Howell Cobb, brother of Captain John A. Cobb of Americus and one of Georgia’s most distinguished public men, died last Thursday morning at his residence in Athens. Judge Cobb’s death followed a stroke of paralysis, received three months since, and was not wholly unexpected, although no immediate danger was apprehended. His brother, Captain Cobb, left Americus at 4:25 to a telegram received the night previous, but did not arrive in Athens before the end came. The death of this distinguished jurist and man of affairs is a distinct loss to Georgia and will be generally deplored, as during a long public career he had filled many positions of honor and distinction in his city and state. Judge Cobb is survived by two brothers, Judge Andrew J. Cobb of Athens and Captain John A. Cobb of Americus, and a sister, Mrs. Rucker of Atlanta.”
