Would like information on Howell COBB, b abt 1790 GA, d aft 1850,Hopkins Co.,KY. m Leah Williams, b 1790 VA, d aft 1850, Hopkins Co., KY.

Possible father of Howell is John COBB, b 1750-1760 VA.

The family history in A History of Texas states that the grandfather of William H. COFFMAN, Howell COBB, was a cousin of the Georgia Statesman with the same name.

Can anyone help me get on track in finding Howell COBB?

I do have some descendant information on Howell COBB's grandchildren. I am from the line of the youngest grandchild, Medora J. COFFMAN.

Thanks,
Pam

Pam,
If you "google" Howell Cobb, there is much information on the net about that branch of the Cobb family. I did that several years ago in an attempt to locate information on my Howell from Wilkinson Country, Ms. The earliest mention of a Howell was Howell Lewis Cobb the son of John Addison Cobb and Mildred Lewis (the daughter of Howell Lewis). Howell Lewis was born on 8/3/1772 and died in 1818, according to my research. I believe he married a Martha Jaqueline Rootes on 5/8/1810. His brother, John Addison Jr., married Sarah Robinson Rootes on 5/11/1812. The oldest son of John Addison, Jr. and Sarah was named Howell and later became the governor of Georgia. "Howell" became a favorite name in the Cobb family thereafter. I found nothing connecting to your Howell.

Jimmie,
Thanks for the info. I know he is connected, i just need to figure out how... I was able to find a nice outline online. Maybe he is a 2nd cousin instead of first. I have not done much on this line yet, but am ready to fill in my gaps.

Thanks again, and if you run across my Howell Cobb, m to Leah Williams, b 1790 VA, let me know.
