Note: Martha Cobb’s father is Henry Cobb,brother to Richard Cobb, Sr., my 3rd Great Grandfather m. Mary Minerva Park(1822-1909). Martha is one of several key links between my Cobb and Parkancestors. Martha’s mother, SallieSimmons, is a NIECE to Tabitha Simmons (1765-1850), my 5th GGM,married to George Phelps (1757-1803) by way of my Great Grandmother, MinervaCobb-Durham (1886-1974). Sallie’s father, Eli Simmons above, is the brother toTabitha Simmons and Susannah Simmons, both married to Phelps. Tabitha is my5GGM, while her brother, Eli, is my 4GGF in two different branches of ourfamily tree!
Alsoof historical significance, is that Mareen Duvall’s Great Grandson, GabrielDuvall (1752-1844), was a close friend of President Thomas Jefferson and servedas the Comptroller of the U.S. Treasury and later as the Associate Justice ofthe U.S. Supreme Court. President Harry S. Truman and Mrs. Wallis WarfieldSimpson, Duchess of Windsor, are also descended from Mareen Duvall. Susannah Duvall (1676-1710), my 8GGM, is theSISTER to Hon. Gabriel Duvall’s (1752-1844) GRANDFATHER, Benjamin DuvallI—Gabriel’s Great Aunt.
