One more thing, since we are both looking at this family: the Cobbs connect to Oliver Hicks. My interest is in Hicks/Wood for myself, and Durfee for my sister-in-law...
I have an elusive Hope Hicks b. 1794 somewhere in NY, MA, DE, CT, or RI. (The family really narrowed that one down. I'm currently trying Delaware Co, NY, with little success).
She had sisters Lydia and Sarah Jane. It appears that Lydia m. a Wood and had sons Amos and Wm.
Sarah Jane m a Haynor and had a girl who m a Blue, who had son Frank Blue.
Hope/Hopy/Hepsy m Samuel Grinnell and they eventually came (1838) to Portland, MI. I'm currently hoping to connect with the Elsie area Hicks family (long shot). Do you know anything about the Hicks/ Wood side of the Durfee family?
