My COBBS/COBB and LEWIS kin connections
Posted by: Dolores Cobb Phifer (ID *****9187) Date: February 03, 2004 at 11:00:18

Hello. I've been helping out a cousin on his related COBBS/COBB "John Lewis Cobbs","John Poindexter Cobbs" line . And, and from what I have gleened from search of "John Lewis Cobbs","John Poindexter Cobbs"... is that since they both show up in my COBBS/COBB research on my Ambrose COBBS of Kent England/VA line...which makes them both related and that also makes them my distant kin...
What I do when I want to find a connection between 2 people/families at site is to take the father or mother back/forward until I find a connection and if that doesn't work, then I go through the kids and their siblings's and their kids. It's alot of work... but it does pay off.
You have to just play around and see where it leads. It is fun... don't be surprised if you go one way and a record is incomplete and go another way and it connects fine and sometimes the links are broken.
Our common gr,... great-grandparents are Robert Cobb (B:~1627, VA) and Elizabeth Thorpe.
John Poindexter COBBS... his great, great, great-grandparents are my gr,... great-grandparents as well.
Now, John Lewis Cobbs (b. 1763) and Susannah Hamner are also related to my gr,... great-grandparents as well.
Now, John Lewis Cobb's great, great, great-grandparents are my gr, gr... great-grandparents as well.
They have to connect in the middle somewhere... and both John Lewis Cobbs and John Poindexter Cobbs have the same ancestors John Cobbs and Susannah Addison...
Now... this is also interesting... it appears from my playing around here that Edmond Cobbs (Sr.) (~1737 - 1800, VA; his wife is Sarah Lewis (~1740 - 1811, VA; her parents are Robert LEWIS and Jane MERIWETHER) and Samuel Cobbs (his wife is Mary Lewis... her parents are Robert LEWIS and Jane MERIWETHER) are brothers and what makes it even more interesting is that I believe that Sarah Lewis and Mary Lewis (DEATH: 1813) are both sisters or are close cousins.... one place lists John Lewis as Sarah Lewis' father.

Now, they also both connect to John Lewis and Elizabeth Warner.

John Addison Cobbs and and Mildred LEWIS's grandfather was Charles Lewis (wife Mary Howell) and Charles Lewis is the brother of Robert Lewis (wife is Jane Meriweather)... Robert Lewis is Samuel Cobbs' wife Mary Lewis' father.
