Looking for an ancestral connection for Reuben Cobb, b. 9 Apr 1795, New Hampshire; d. 17 Apr 1881, Webster, Monroe Co., NY. He married Martha "Patty" Robb, b. abt 1795, New Hampshire, d. bet Oct. 1860 - July 1870 (censuses). Children: Jane Ann Cobb, Lucy Cobb, Calvin R. Cobb (b. Nov 1830, Webster, NY), Elizabeth "Betsy" Cobb (b. 2 Mar 1833 Webster, NY) and Martha Cobb (Jan. 1836).

Jane Ann Cobb (b. bef 1831, d. bef 1854) and Elizabeth "Betsy" Cobb (2 Mar 1833 - 29 Jan 1918) married consecutively a Chauncey Thompson (1824-1913). Martha Cobb (Jan 1836 - aft June 1900 (census)) married a (Philander?) Barrett, who died bef 1880 census. Calvin R. Cobb married a Sarah (LNU).

In 1820 census, Reuben Cobb was in Penfield, Monroe Co., NY.; in 1830, Reuben Cobb and family were still there in Penfield. In 1830, Penfield, NY there was also a family for Andrew Robbs; Martha Robb's father might be Andrew Robb(s). The 1850 census has a William Robb (b. 1761) living with them; he may have been an uncle or her father). From 1840 and later, Reuben and Martha Cobb's family and descendants were in Webster, NY.

Censuses indicate Reuben Cobb's parents were also born in New Hampshire, likely Martha Robb's parents were also from there.

A possibility for Reuben Cobb (except for father's birth in Mass. not N.H.), might be Ebenezer Cobb & Olive (LNU), his second wife. Now Ebenezer Cobb was a son of Stephen Cobb and Abigail Hinds. (Stephen Cobb's parentage unknown but b. prob. bef 1714 in Mass.). Ebenezer Cobb had a son Timothy Cobb, b. 2/12/1791, Dublin, NH, who named a son Reuben H. Cobb.

Reuben Cobb may have had different parents yet to be found. Does anyone have a connection to Reuben Cobb or Ebenezer Cobb's families or have other data supporting Reuben Cobb's parentage?
