|Death: ||Sep. 15, 1919|
Daughter of Dr. Robert Casper Jefferson Cary and Frances Crowe Mathews.
Married Richard Cobrin in 1856 and resided at Moss Neck Plantation, down the river from Fredericksburg, Virginia in Caroline Co. Was the mistress of Moss Neck, which was a huge plantation and house which was massive and very impressive.
She had one daughter Janie Wellford Corbin, who was a favorite of General Stonewall Jackson, while he and his troops wintered there. It was during this time that General Jackson gave Janie the band off his forage hat, which she treasured and wore all the time until her untimely death. Apparently Roberta kept that as a treasured memory of her daughter Janie. It would eventually end up in the hands of Wythe Kinsolving, which would have been a half brother of Janie Corbin's, as Roberta was mother of both. He saved a wonderful piece of southern and Civil War history, as he donated that head band to the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia
Roberta would loose both Jane and her husband during the Civil War. Richard died while serving in the conflict.
On 21 September 1870, she would become the third wife of Rev. Ovis Americus Kinsolving at Trinity Church in Washington D. C.
She would produce more children of this marriage, Robert Cary, Wythe Leigh, Lucien Lee and their daughter, Roberta Cary Kinsolving. Wythe would also become a minister, at one time serving as recotor of the P. E. Church in Barton Heights, Richmond, Virginia. Lucien Lee also became a minister.
