Deeds

The records below focus on deeds involving the following persons. I have endeavored to find all deeds involving them from the establishment of Crittenden Co. in 1842 through 1878, but some may have been missed.

Caleb C. Cobb Eldest son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, born c. 1797, Vermont, active in iron, land, and other interests in and around Eddyville. Later moved to Crittenden Co., died 1867.
Louisa (Long) Cobb Second wife of Caleb, born c. 1815, moved to Illinois after 1870.
Giles L. Cobb Fifth son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, born 1823, Eddyville, active in iron, land, finance, and mercantile, often in partnership with brothers Robert & Gideon. Moved to Dycusburg, died 1867.
Thomas J. Cobb Son of Caleb C. Cobb and his first wife Mary Machen, born 1826, Caldwell Co., died 1881.

Deeds of some other family members and associates are included, along with mentions of some of the individuals involved in the transactions listed, but those should not be considered complete. Deeds for Robert L. and Gideon D. Cobb Jr. are listed separately, but deeds involving them and also other family members are included in both lists.

Parties are stated to be "of Crittenden County" unless otherwise stated.
