Mary Key/William T. Cobbs Marriage Bonds
Posted by: Diane Butler Date: July 28, 2000 at 08:31:30
  of 603

I have a copy of the marriage bonds of Mary KEY, daughter of William KEY
and Sarah Wash, obtained on a research trip to Rustburg, Campbell
County, VA in 1985. The bonds are dated 22 December 1819. It is my
understanding from several researchers that Mary Key was the first and
only wife of William T. Cobbs. So, what's the problem? The documented
birth dates of the first four children of William T. and Mary Key Cobbs
are as follows:
Tandy P. Cobbs 1811
Sarah W. Cobbs 1814
Mary E. Cobbs 1816
William Thomas Cobbs 1818
I understand that the marriage may have been registered long after the
actual date of marriage; however, would love to hear explanations for
this discrepancy in dates. Any ideas?
William T. Cobbs and Mary Key are my third great grandparents and I have
descendant information to share for Sarah W. Cobbs Allison, their
daughter. Thanks for any help.
