Cobb Family - Second Generation

The records below focus on deeds involving the sons of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, their wives and selected comtemporaries, excepting those involving Robert L. Cobb, which are listed separately. Deeds involving him and also other family members are included in both lists. I have endeavored to find all deeds involving them from the establishment of Lyon Co. in 1854 through 1891, but some may have been missed. The primary individuals include are as follows:

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.
Joshua Cobb Third son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, born 1809, Eddyville, moved to Stewart Co. Tennessee in 1837 and to Clarksville, Tennessee in 1851. Died 1879, Clarksville.
Gideon D. Cobb Fourth son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark, born 1818, Eddyville, active in iron, land, finance, and mercantile, often in partnership with brother Robert, and later their bother Giles. Died 1871, Eddyville.
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.
Marion Cobb Wife of Giles L. Cobb. Born 1808, Kentucky, died 1912, Eddyville.

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.

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