I am enjoying reading your posts.

I am a descendant of Joseph Cobb (b 1588 in England). He is mentioned in one of your posts, along with several others, most of whom are in his immediate family: Joseph Jr. (b in England befor 1613), Benjamin (b in England before 1613), Pharoah (b IOW Co. 1625), Edward (b about 1665), Nicholas (b IOW Co. 1630), and Elizabeth (b IOW Co. 1627). I have no knowledge of the other names (I imagine they are spouses).

If you could send me any information you have on these folks, I would appreciate it. If my request is too broad or if it results in an unreasonably lengthy search, you may certainly limit it to Joseph Cobb and his son Nicholas, from about 1613-1650. My records indicate that this famiy lived in IOW Co until around 1760, then moved to Edgecombe County, NC. My goal is to discover as much as I can about them during the whole period, but I don't want to bother you with the whole task at this time. In subsequent queries maybe I can fill in the gaps.

I am new at making genealogical queries, and I am not aware of some of the protocols.

thanks, ;)
