Thomas Cobbs - BD 1720 Virginia - DD 1761

Would love to connect with a researcher that can exchange info about this Thomas Cobbs and his son Thomas BD 1737 - DD 1826 - Virginia. This is my husbands family. Family Trees are saying that this family left Virginia and moved to Georgia? We have no family records that indicate that. Would love to see some Bible Pages on this family. Thank you so much.

Surnames: Cobb/Cobbs of VA
My Cobb/Cobbs family originated in VA - and I can only PROVE the family from John Cobb B 1814 in KY. The most probable names in the census at that time were Thomas and William who seemed to move together.

I need parents names for these Cobb/Cobbs 'children' - John (1814), Mary (abt 1815 in IND) and Hester (1816-1818 IND). John's biography says his father was a farmer who had farms on both sides of the Ohio River between 1814 and 1830 when he 'went to Arkansas where he died.'

Thank you for your reply. I have searched the Cobbs Tree that I am working on for my husband and I do not have any of these names. I also recently purchased a book on the Cobbs/Cobb from a lady in Alabama. She actually is a distant relative to my husband and had included many "other Cobb/Cobbs) families that also came out of Virginia just like ours did. She did not have any of the names you have listed either. It amazes me how you will hit brick walls in every family.
I will keep your note and if i find anything I will contact you. Good luck.

Generation 5
Mary Key on 22 Dec 1810 in Campbell Co. Va..
Notes for William Tellis Cobbs:
We have done quite a bit of research to make some corrections on my Great, Great, Grandfather's records. On many trees that has been posted to the internet, he is shown as William Tandy Cobbs. This is incorrect. His middle name is Tellis. Records from the land office where he was granted land shows his middle name as "Tellis". His will, signed by his own hand and filed in Prentiss Co. Miss. in 1870 reveal his middle name to be "Tellis".
There has been a lot of confusion about the date of his marriage to Mrs. Mary Key and speculation that he might have had a prior marriage. We hired an independent research in Richmond, Virginia to go to the State Archives Library in Richmond in Novermber of 2010 to check on this record. She sent us a copy and we will be including it in this book.
We believe the true date of marriage to be 12/22/1810. Here are our findings:
1. You will note that the actual marriage records had some blanks that were not filled in and that the questionable
year of marriage was added in over the December 19 date. If you look carefully you will realize that the "tail on
the letter 'b" in December goes up to the "1810" "0" making some think that the marriage year was 1819. We
will carefully give you our other findings after examining this record.
2. Please note that the family of Mary Key is making a marriage Bond to Gov. John Tyler, the governor of the State
of Virginia. John Tyler Sr. was governor of Virginia from 1808 to 1811. (The 1810 marriage would fit in this time
frame. His son, John Tyler Jr. was governor from 1825 to 1827. ) If the marriage date of 1819 was the correct
one, the bond would have been to James Patton Preston, governor from 12/1/18816 to 12/1/ 1819 or if not him
to Thomas Mann Randolph Jr. who was governor from 12/1/1819 to 12/1/1822.
3. Mary Key would have been 34 years of age if the 1819 date was correct. Note that you have a consent to marry
form signed by her father, William Key and Witnessed by Charles Cobbs, John B. Cobbs and Robert Key. As in
most states during that time period the requirement for consent was 25 and under. Why would a 34 yr old
woman need this. Mary Key would have just turned 25 prior to the 1810 marriage. Notice the form states that
marriage is intended to take place shortly. It looks like they were making preparations and since some dates
are blank it is hard to know when consent was given.
HERE IS AN E-MAIL WE RECEIVED YESTERDAY FROM THE RESEARCHER AFTER SHE TOOK A SECOND LOOK AT IT IN THE RICHMOND, LIBRARY.
"Faye,
I looked at this record today at the Library of Virginia on a reader-printer which can greatly enlarge it. I also had another certified genealogist take a look at this for a second opinion. We decided that it does appear to be a zero and that would make it consistent with the name of the governor as to when he served. However, there is no way to explain away the date on the front of the bond except that it must have been written on it many years later- at least nine. I guess that it is possible that it was put

Generation 5 on the front of the bond when they were being lined up so to speak - maybe when
someone was getting ready to enter all in a marriage register for the county.
So I guess that you can feel you are safe in recording this couple as the parents of your husband's ancestor.

On the 1870 census in Prentiss Mississippi, William Tellis Cobb is 86 years old. His daughters Mary Cobbs, Susan A. Jackson and her two daughters. (Tellis's granddaughters) are living in the house with him. Mary Cobb apparently never married but remained in the home to care for her elderly father. After Susannah's husband passed she and her two daughters apparently lived in the father's home to help care for him. Sometime in August of 1870 William Tellis will pass away and the Will is filed. You will see where he leaves the home house and some land to Mary Emaline, Susannah and the two granddaughters.

Re: Thomas Cobbs - BD 1720 Virginia - DD 1761

Mike the e-mail address you gave me will not accept my e-mail to you so i am posting on Ancestry to you. In an effort to clear this up once and for all for people that are in this same family. We are 100% sure of his ancestors up through William Tellis Cobbs and Mary Key, his wife. We have believed up to now that William Tellis's father was a Thomas Cobbs, Born in Virginia in 1737 and died in Virginia 1826. We have a copy of that will and he is naming the same children that we show as siblings of William Tellis. We think he died in Virginia because the will was proved there. All we have for his wife is Mary - LNU. Those who maintain that he went to Georgia say that his wife was Mary Benning.

We show William Tellis's grandfather as Thomas Cobbs, Born 1720 in Virginia and died 1761 in Virginia with Sarah LNU as his wife. Those taking the Georgia position say that this was Col. Old Tom Cobbs who went to Georgia and was married to Susannah Moon. Would love to uncover some real facts. I have just run out of places to look. Thanks for any help you can give.

Also if you have another e-mail address that i might use, I would appreciate it.

thanks again.
