     Children:

It seems questionable whether the infant born in 1895 was in fact the child of William and Edna, given their ages, and that their last previous child was born about 1867. It seems more likely to have been the child of one of their children. The child is recorded on Mount Hope burial records as Wm H. Cobb's Inft" and is shown as buried in his lot, but does not appear on the plot plan for that lot. There is no other William H. Cobb in the family living in the area at the time; William's cousin of the same name seems to have moved to Michigan decades before.41,42
