I do have some information on John McCobb. He was born Feb. 9, 1779 and died June 1848. He was the son of Samuel McCobb and Rachel Denny. He married Sally Weston May 13, 1802 in Alexandria, Va.

His parents, Samuel (Gen.) McCobb (born Nov. 20, 1744 in Georgetown, Sagadahoc, ME, died July 30, 1791 in Bath, Sagadahoc, ME) son of James (Capt) McCobb and Beatrice Rogers. Samuel McCobb married Rachel Denny Feb. 18, 1768 in Georgetown, Sagadahoc, ME. Rachel was born June 23, 1752, North Yarmouth, Cumberland, ME and died Sept. 18, 1825, Georgetown, Sagadahoc, ME. Her parents were Samuel (Brig. Gen.) Denny and Rachel Loring.

I am not a descendent, I have an accounting sheet from 1809 that I found in some old papers in Alexandria, Va. and was curious to know something about the man.

Thank you so much for your reply and your referrals.

Debra Miller
