COBB, STANCIL posted by Louise Sams on Thursday, February 17, 2000

I (and researchers from Alabama to Texas) am searching for my ancestor, William COBB and his parents. William COBB was born in 1730 in Craven County, N.C. He married Sarah STANCIL in 1755 in Dobbs County, had a son named David COBB born in 1760 in Dobbs County, and was serving in the Minute Men as a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War in September 1775 in Dobbs County. He died in 1797 in Wayne County, N.C. (Formerly Dobbs County?) This is mostly all from other researchers, and I need any type of documentation to support it. Also, some think his father was Benjamin Cobb, others Joseph Cobb or Joseph Cobb, Jr. Can you provide any insight/assistance in this? Thanks a million! Lou Sams, Cobb descendant
