The Cobbs in my family go back to the early 1800s. I have no information later than around 1860 when my great-great grandmother Amanda Cobb died in I believe Quachita Parish, Louisiana. She married my great-great grandfather, Francis Sheppard, in Quachita Parish. Prior to that marriage she had been married to James Vickers, who died, and they had several children who were left in the household with Francis Sheppard and my great-grandmother, Flora Bell Sheppard, who was Amanda's ony child with Francis. James Vickers mother was Elizabeth Vickers and just prior to the Civil War she left Louisiana for Texas and resided in Texas for awhile or possibly died there. That is about all the information I have.
