An old Cosby bible mentions "great great gmother Crow" but there are no dates or other information to help identify her. Need help connecting the Crow(e)surname to these families if, in fact, there really was a connection.

The COSBY/CROSBY/COZBY/CAUSBY families (name was spelled many different ways on records of the 1800's)came to AL from Buncombe Co NC in the early 1800's.

I'm looking for a Crow or Crowe that might have been connected to a Hugh W or Uriah W Cosby. This family was in the Jackson Co, Jefferson Co, St Clair County AL area. Hugh/Uriah (again a difference in recorded name) supposedly first married a lady name Elizabeth Jane Cates around 1865, probably in AL. His 2nd wife was supposedly a Sarah E Wilson; married about 1867 or 1868. The Wilsons were in Walker Co GA in 1850 and in DeKalb Co AL in 1860. He married a 3rd time to a lady name Mary M Ferguson Terry.

Some of Hugh/Uriah's children married into the Woodall; Flippo; Jenkins; Manes; Killough; Damron; and Brock families. One or more of the Cosby men were in Maricopa Co AZ and Bakersfield, Kern Co CA; probably early 1900's.

Another connection may be to the Nesmith family from Morgan Co and Lawrence Co AL.

Any help/information about the above would be greatly appreciated.
