Federal Bankruptcy

This page created 28 Aug 2011

J. C. Cobb

Bankruptcy of Joshua Clark Cobb, son of Robert Livingston Cobb and Cornelia Mims, and father of Irvin S. Cobb. Joshua was in business in Eddyville, Kentucky, with his father and brothers Robert and Linah before the Civil War, but the firm fell on hard times after the war and Joshua and Linah filed nearly identical bankruptcy petitions on 29 Feb 1868 in the U.S. District Court in Paducah, Kentucky.

The information below was extracted from the case file no. 250, J. C. Cobb Bankruptcy, and consists mainly of the schedules filed by the bankrupt. There are extensive documents related to the bankruptcy proceedure which are not included here. The totals and summaries included here do not exist in the original file.

The filing of Joshua's brother Linah, made on the same day, was substantially identical, and was not examined in detail.
