Maria Cobb was born on 16 Dec 1830 in New York.6,7,8
     She was probably the female age 5 to 10 listed in the household of her father, Gideon Cobb, in the 1840 Federal Census of Brighton, Monroe Co., New York.12 She appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Brighton, Monroe Co., New York, in the household of her parents, Gideon Cobb and Roxana Worden.2
     Maria married Liberty Hall, son of Jeremiah Hall and Sarah Knight, on 6 Jun 1854 in Rochester, New York.9,10,11
     After their marriage, Maria and Liberty Hall lived for a time at his father's home in Concord, New Hampshire.13 They returned to Rochester in 1856.13 They appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Rochester, Monroe Co., New York, enumerated 25 Jun 1860, reporting real estate valued at $2,700. Their children Clifford and Charles were listed as living with them, as was Ann Gallagher, an 18-year-old domestic from Ireland.14
     Maria and Liberty and their two surviving sons moved to Glencoe, Minnesota in the fall of 1868, with his brother Virgil and his family. His parents followed them in 1870.15,16 Maria and Liberty appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Helen, McLeod Co., Minnesota, enumerated 11 Jul 1870, reporting real estate valued at $4,000 and personal estate of $1,000. Their children Clifford, Harry and Weenona were listed as living with them.17
     Maria and Liberty appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Glencoe, McLeod Co., Minnesota, enumerated 12 Jun 1880. Their children Clifford, Harry and Weenona were listed as living with them. Also listed were his parents, Jeremiah Hall and Sarah Knight, her cousin Willard G. Cobb, son of her brother Gideon, and Jerimmie Ebbert, a 20-year-old German servant.18
     Failing health prompted Liberty to seek a warmer climate, so in 1887 he and Maria joined their sons Clifford and Harry in Kansas City, Missouri. His mother, now widowed, moved there with them.19
     Her husband died on 21 Jun 1891 in Denver, Colorado.20,21
     Her brother James's will, which left all his property to his family's long-time housekeeper, was filed for probate 20 Mar 1899. Maria and her sister Frances filed to contest the will.22,23 Their contest was rejected by the judge 6 Sep 1899, and ordered them to pay costs.24
     Maria appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Kansas City, Jackson Co., Missouri, in the household of her daughter Weenona and her husband, Philip Sheriden Creager.25 Maria appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Kansas City, Jackson Co., Missouri, in the household of her daughter Weenona, now widowed.26
