  8. [S225] Despite Philip Cobb's statement that the child was born in Orwell, his father was a constable in Pawlet by 1780, and appeared there in the 1790 and 1800 census. He did not sell his farm in Pawlet until 1805, appearing in the Orwell census in 1810, so it seems most likely that all his children were born in Pawlet.

  12. [S2607] Cleveland and Cleveland, Genealogy of the Cleveland and Cleaveland Families, vol 1 pg 45, shows year, as 1811, town, county, as Livingston, and state. However, Livingston was not formed until 1823; before that the area known as Moscow, now in Leicester, was in Genesee Co. There are no Cobbs listed in Genesee Co. in the 1810 census, suggesting Philip Cobb's death date of 1808 is more likely correct.
