      The Cobb: Hughet Cobb, was born in Kanawha County in 1800. His wife's maiden name was Nancy Ashley, born in the year 1801. They were early settlers in Harper District, making their home on what is now call the Martin Smith farm on Higly Creek. Mr. Cobb was a cooper by trade and a farmer. To him and his wife Nancy, were born fourteen children, seven sons and seven daughters. The names of the sons were Zachariah T., John A., Madison, Hiram, Hildavart, Wiley and Scott. Five of the son were in the Federal Army. We do not remember the names of the daughters.
