Which Thomas Cobb?

+6 votes

In working my Cobb ancestry back I see that our friend Mr. Ancestry Gedcom has reared his ugly head again.  Mary Susannah (Moon) Cobb is shown as married to:

Thomas Cobb (1737 - 1826)

and also to:

Col. Thomas Addison "Old Tom" Cobb

Both Thomas profiles have different parents and different children so they are probably different people.  But, which is the husband of Mary?

I'm starting this thread as a meeting place for the PMs, researchers, and descendants of these profiles to meet and discuss the merits and sources for these profiles.

Two sons of Robert Cobbs Jr are named Thomas.  Possibly one of them is wrong - both have different mothers, did Robert remarry?

Thomas Addison Cobb (1722 - 1831)

Thomas Cobb (abt. 1696 - 1774)

This Thomas is certainly a duplicate of 783 & will be merged:

Thomas Addison Cobb (1723 - 1832)

I'm starting to work on these profiles - as there has been no other feedback, I'm going to work them as best as I can with the sources at hand.
