All Others

The records below focus on deeds involving members of the Cobb family and their associates, excluding those found in other sections. I have endeavored to find all deeds involving the Cobb family from the establishment of Caldwell Co. on 1 May 1809 through 1856, but a few may have been missed. For other persons below those deeds included are by no means exhaustive.

All parties were shown as "of" Eddyville and/or Caldwell Co. unless stated otherwise below.
