Walter Lee Cobb is my Mother's grandfather. My tree is missing a lot of death dates and I'm trying to find where to look. I have records for Walter being alive out until 1940. My mother remembers that her grandparents used to go to New York all the time and she was born in 1946. I have Census' from 1880-1930. 1930 shows Hallowell, Kennebec, Maine as residence. I have done searches on Ancestry, familysearch, mainegeneaology, and am having no luck with a lot of deaths.

Is there a source for deaths that is known that I'm missing?

You mean you just call the cemeteries? I didn't think to do that. I was planning on going through a local library.

Hi!

I stumbled onto your message while looking for information concerning my Grandfather, Dr. Norman E. Cobb. I am not sure who you are...or whether we are talking about the same family. Although, my Grandfather's Dad was Walter Cobb.

If you believe there is a connection, please contact me via this site.

Best regards!
