Have you tried to get a photocopy of your grandfather's original death certificate? If the informant was knowledgable about him, the certificate may list the names of his parents. Have you found the family on the GA census records? I looked in my Cobia book and found some Cobia's from Dodge County, but none of them were Benjamins. These people lived in Eastman, Dodge Co, GA. Some of the names were:
Jessie Robinson Cobia, son of Frank Cobia & Miss Atkinson was married in Dodge Co to Lula Walker (no dates). Their children:
Samie Jane Cobia
Dewey Hobson Cobia (informant b 22 Jun 1889)
Nora Lee Cobia
Berlia Mae Cobia
Willie Ester Cobia
Sidney Bartow Cobia
Irby Brown Cobia
Alma Lucile Cobia
Ollie Robinson Cobia all b. Eastman, no dates

The author of the book states that Jessie Robinson Cobia was born in Charleston, SC, but she did not know how he connected to the other SC Cobia's.
