Lyon County

This page updated 24 Jan 2012

Robert L. Cobb & sons Linah & Joshua

The records below focus on deeds involving the following people. I have endeavored to find all deeds involving them from the establishment of Lyon Co. in 1854 until they moved to Paducah about 1870, but some may have been missed.

Robert L. Cobb Second son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, born c. 1804, Eddyville, active in iron, land, finance, and mercantile, often in partnership with brother Gideon, and later their brother Giles. Later moved to Paducah, died 1875, Paducah.
Linah M. Cobb Second son of Robert L. Cobb and Cornelia Mims, born c. 1838, Caldwell Co., partner in business with his father and brothers in firm of R L Cobb & Sons. Died 1904, Paducah
Joshua C. Cobb Second son of Robert L. Cobb and Cornelia Mims, born 1839, Caldwell Co., partner in business with his father and brothers in firm of R L Cobb & Sons. Died 1895, Paducah

Record of some other 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's brothers Caleb Johsua, Gideon, and Giles, his son Robeson who only breifly joined in the firm of R L Cobb & Son, and others are listed separately.

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