Re: [jacksongenealogy] W. R.W. COBB
Your paper on W R W Cobb promises to be exciting - just from the little that I learned about him this afternoon while taking a break from working on my taxes.
Everything I mentioned I found on Fold3 (formerly Footnote). If you do not have access to this, let me know and I can download the images and send them to you. I would be pleased to contribute to your research as you have contributed so much to the history of Jackson County.
