Dr Watson,

When comparing the date of birth for Eliza Jane Tidwell from the census records and the 'Find a Grave' record there seems to be a transcription error. From census data and from the photo of her headstone her birth date seems to be 1866 vs 1886 as is listed in 'Find a Grave'.

I have noted some of your work on and on I am very impressed and appreciative of the time and effort you have put into helping preserve the history of our ancestors. Thank you very much sir!

RE: Paul Davis Yarborough
My Pleasure. Let me know if you want anything else. There were several Yarboroughs in that one area. An unknown, a Baby Yarboroug, and G. W. Yarborough. I also added those to the cemetery site in case you wanted to check them out. They are all in the same area as Delbert and Paul Yarborough's graves.

Thomas Jefferson Cobb of Chilton, AL1
Hello, Dr. John:

I'm an administrator of the Cobb DNA project, and I believe that a Texas branch of a Cobb family is associated with this Alabama branch; specifically that Joseph Eliga Cobb (b. 1838 Georgia - d. 1901 Panola Texas) was the brother of Thomas Jefferson Cobb (1850 - 1933). Am searching for descendants of Thomas Jefferson to test, if you know of any living male Cobbs from this line?

You can see more about the DNA project at

Thanks and regards,

Stephanie Ray

Thanks soo much for the edits. I just had the honor of listing these graves, but don't own them. If the Scotts are related to you, I would gladly transfer them to you. Just send me a transfer request and I will do it. Have a nice day.
