Re: Emily Coby-Hardy County
Saw your Emily Coby-Hardy County - Debo 10/05/06
I am looking for family of Emily Coby, born abt. 1795. She married John Cook on 11 Feb 1823 in Hardy County. Va. I have no other information for her. John died in 1848 and she was alive on the 1870 census. After that, no further record. Any connections? Who were her siblings, parents?
I suspect this is daughter of Hezekiah Coby of 1810 census
record. At that time Hezekiah was in the 20 -46 year range and had 5 children. I have a family bible with some of that info but it is very sketchy. In the 1960's we bought some of the property originally owned by Hezekiah in Hardy Co (W)Va.
Never had seen one of John and Emily's childeren was Hezekiah

I have an ancestress Emily Coby, born 1795,who married a John Cook. They named one of their sons, Hezekiah.
I also see that a Rollin Larrick asked this in 2001.
I hope to find Coby researchers who can identify my ancestor Elizabeth Coby, b. 1805, d. 1895 in Hardy Co., W.Va. She m. Pius Combs (1810-1880). She mentions a bro. John Coby in her will, and this John may be the one mentioned in the 1850 census with his mother Rebecca, age 76. There is a Hezekiah Coby in Hardy Co., (W.)Va. by 1820. Any idea of the ancestry of these people?
If I can help please contact me.
