Wiley Howell Cobb thought to have had at least 2 siblings. Sister, Nancy, thought to be 2nd wife of Jesse Smith of Bell Arthur and brother, Stephen who married Harriet Proctor in 1852, who lived in same area as Wiley.
Per Pitt co Chronicles, article #6, Jesse and Nancy (Nannie)had 6 children.
Stephen and Harriet had 4. Ally who married E.R.Parker; Mary who married Calvin Jones; James, spouse unknown by me and Stephen who married Audrey Boyd in 1916 and died in 1918.
I would like to contact any of their descendents in effort to verify this connection and in the possible hope of finding out the names of Wiley, Nancy and Stephen's parents.
All my research leads me to believe they were Charles Cobb, son of David Cobb, Sr and Nancy Truss, daughter of Samuel Truss, Sr, all of the same area of Pitt co. But I am yet to see this in writing.
Any help and/or comments appreciated.
