I am searching for the parents of Henry M. Cobb, birth parents or step parents. The "legend" in the family matches what Goodspeed has to say.

h in S. C.
* Married Rachel Brown Downing 21 Mar 1844 in MO
* d 12 Jan 1849 (age 34)
* After Henry M's death, Rachel married George Elsberry--they are both buried in Lincoln Co. MO.
Henry M. was a property owner according to BLM records in Pike Township 51-N Range 3-W and Montgomery Counties Township 49-N and Range 3-W in the 1820, 30's as late as 1841.
Henry M.and Rachel B Cobb had two sons
John Henry Cobb born 1845 (my direct ancestor)
Ezekiel Andrew Cobb born 1846 -- Goodspeed -- History of Lincoln Co.
I find evidence in the 1850 and 1860 of both of the boys John Henry and Ezekiel Andrew and sometimes Rachel living with Margaret and Ezekiel Downing. I also have the Downing Family Genealogical information but they have nothing on Henry M. other than a name.
