Looking for info on Howell Cobb born about 1874, son of Jefferson and Martha Cobb (Nash County 1880 census) and grandson of Orren Cobb and Jincy Cobb (Nash County 1850 census). The family appears in the 1880 census in Whitaker, Nash County. In 1900 Howell was on the USS Prairie at Norfolk, VA, and in 1910 he was in Kittery, Maine, on duty at the Naval Prison. He died 1921 in Fredericksburg, VA. His obit gives his rank as captain and indicates he was married. The body was shipped to Nashville, NC.
Does anyone know his wife's name? Where he was buried? Other info about his military service? He must have served in WW1.
Thank you. - Anne
