Thank you so much Debby...I didn't expect a reply so soon! If it helps any, Cosby Jane was born abt 1870 probably in Wise Co VA, but more likely in Letcher Co KY. She married Dock "D.C." Mullins, son of William "Bacon Bill" Mullins and Sarah Rose. She and Dock lived in Dunham KY for a while then moved to Pound, VA. My husband's grandmother Nellie (Dock and Cosby's daughter) was born 1917 in Letcher Co KY...she had another brother named Crate who was born abt 1916 and 6 other siblings: Bill, Hazel, Thelma, Hazel, Helen, Virginia and Bonnie(no dates). As best I can figure, Dock and Cosby must have married sometime about 1910 or so. I'm not even 100% sure Cosby's maiden name was Mullins....I appreciate all you've done Debby.

Hey, here's a thought...maybe a more reasonable request of you would be to look for Dock and Cosby Mullins in 1910 census which would show the states her parents were born in AND how many years Dock and Cosby had been married! I'll bet with a roundabout marriage date I'd have lots more luck searching, huh? *thumping my forehead in a big DUH!!* Gee, you can tell I'm one tired woman! LOL
