My line goes all the way back to Griffith Griffin Davis in Prince George colony,VA.
In Owen county James Davis was my GGrandfather hwose son Joseph Edward Davis had married Elizabeth Ellen Glass and started a faminly and then immigrated and homesteaded Harper copunty , Knasas in about 1876, I have a copy of the Homestead.
Then ten years later, he moved with one of his sons, , my Grandfarther Fred Brown Davis and his son-in-law Ben Wilson into grant county , OK and homesteaded near Medford and three of his sons also joined him.
The interesting thing about the Holbrooks is which one you are
descended from, Colby or Zachariah. They both named their kids the same and most
of the records on them, ie. marriages were lost in the 2 courthouse fires
in Scott County. Zachariah first married Sarah Morgan, and according to
Stratton Hammond, his second was Lucinda Hammond, daughter of John. By
family history, he did marry twice, but do not know for sure it was a Hammond
by any name. Zach and his second wife were the parents of Rhoda Jane
Holbrook who married John Stamper. These are my second great grandparents.
Colby's line is even a little more fuzzy, as I have only circumstantial
evidence about him. I would love to know who your line comes from. The Davis
family goes in and out of all of these lines.

Since I haven't worked on my Cobb line, much, I got it out and here goes.
Samuel was born 30 Apr 1735 in Pomfret Township , Windham Co., Connecticut
These records are in the Conn. State Library. Samuel and Judith (Judah)
Peak were married in Wareshoals, South Carolina at the Turkey Creek Baptist
Church. His first marriage may have been to Elizabeth Boswell, but not
sure if proof has been found or not. Samuel's parents were Henry Cobb and
Jemima Morse and they were married in Pomfret, Conn. and had 5 children
there. They moved to Barnstable, Mass. and had two more known sons. Then to
I just remembered who Jesse Robinson married and it was Margaret
"Peggy" Roach. So she was probably a relative to Hettie Roach, Elisha's wife.
There isn't much known about the Roach family, as I believe that this
family migrated elsewhere after being in Owen County. There were Roach
families in Virginia in the 1600's and in N.C. in the 1700's and have done some
research on them, but have not been able to tie them in with any who married
into our Cobbs
Samuel Cobb and his ancestors are considered "Friends of the
Mayflower". Although our common ancestor, Henry Cobb, who married Sarah Hinkley
did not come over on the Mayflower, He did come soon afterward. They
married, had children, and certainly settled this land. Our Cobbs are known as
the Barnstable Cobbs. Another Cobb line (stated as not related to us)
settled around Taunton, Mass. and were known as the Taunton Cobbs. It was just a
way to distinguish our family from theirs.
There is an old book that I have heard about called The Cobb Brothers
Five. It gives a lot of info in Samuel and his brothers, but have never
seen a copy of it. Would love to though.
Any confusion, let me know.
Judy Estes, Farrar, Dawson, Cobb, Holbrook, Stamper, King, Smith,
Morgan or Hammond, (depending on what theory it is), etc. of Owen County,
According to the book, The Cobbs of Owen County, Kentucky, Permelia, or
Millie, as she was called, married a John Robinson after the death of her
first husband. They had one daughter, Mary. John may have been a relative as
Margaret "Peggy" Cobb married a Benjamin Robinson of Grant County and had
3 children, Jesse (wife's name unknown), Judy (named after her grandmother
Judith Peak Cobb) married Doc Kinman, and Lile who married Isaac Ingram.
Peggy was the youngest daughter of Samuel. So you might look in the Owen
and Grant County censuses.
These families intermarried so much, it's hard to get them straight

Thanks to an answer I now know my Thomas died in 1858 being married only seven years. He would not be on the 1860 Census. As Jasper Thomas(Jack)Cobb was born 20 Feb. 1856 and would be two, where is he and mother in 1860? Did Permilia Ann Ingram marry again?
I appreciate Nancy Perry's reply to me as it really helped.

Hi Nancy Perry,
I descend from the James Davis clan in Owen county and there was two Davis sisters that married into the Cobb family , one married two brothers , (different times of course;-) ).
My Great Grandfather was Joseph Edward Davis a son of James who took his family into Kansas where I lve and homesteaded Harpeer about 1876 ( have to look at the Homestead grant to be sure.
I am looking for the death date of Thomas Cobb married to Pamela(Permelia Ann) Ingram.
She had an AKA as Millie for some reason.
Their wedding date 19 Dec. 1850. Also do not have a death date of his wife. For some reason I can't find information about this Thomas. He was the father of Jasper Thomas(Jack) Cobb. To get a supplement DAR for old Samuel Cobb and Judath Peake I need some sort of link. Thomas should be in the 1860 Census and 1850 as he married in December of 50.
I believe the early Cobb's in Owen Co., Ky started with Samuel
Samuel moved his family about 1795 from SC to Owen Co., Ky.
The family were Baptists.
Elisha son of Samuel (born 2-19-1794 in SC) went on the be a baptist preacher at the Muscle Shoals Baptist Church May 1839. He died Dec 1854.
Asa Cobb son of Samuel (born 5-22-1799 Owen Co., Ky) also became a baptist preacher at several churches in Pendleton Co., Ky, Scott Co and Bourbon Co. Ky
from "A History of Ky Baptists from 1769 to 1885"
I believe (no documentation) that Samuel was born April 30, 1735 and and died 1805 in Owen County. Buried in the Old Jackson Graveyard on the Davis Farm near Breck in Owen County, KY.
He married Judith Peake abt 1780 in Donalds, South Carolina - Turkey Creek Baptist Church (Second oldest church in South Carolina – Founded 1775 ).
this is from Edgar L. Morgan who Published "THE COBBS OF OWEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY" in 1961:
Former marriage: Bef. 1769, Samuel Cobb had a previous family.
A wife, one daughter, Elizabeth & two sons.
Former offspring: Fall of 1769, Wife and daughter were killed by Indians.
Both sons, Ransom and Humphrey survived.
Military service: September 07, 1776, Enlistment in the Revolutionary War
and fought in battles around Charleston,
discharged after the battle of Charleston in 1780. (Most probably did not
remarry until after his discharge.
Property: May 05, 1786, Received 500 acres along the Reedy River in South
Carolina as payment for War Services. He deeded
this land to his son Humphrey.
We only know the Great Love and all the ways and things
through which the Great Love flows by opening our hearts.
