Samuel Cobb, of Kentucky, married Magdalene Feverley, and settled in Montgomery Co., Mo., in 1823. They had six children Philip, Samuel, Jr., Adam, Easter, Nancy, and Sally. All are dead except Samuel, Jr., who is still living in the 86th year of his age. He was married first to Sally Sayler, of Kentucky, by whom he had ten children. He was married the second time to Lenora Taylor, and they had three children. Mr. Cobb belongs to the old fashioned style of men, and does not believe in many of our modern inventions and innovations. His brother Adam was a soldier in the war of 1812. He married Delilah Bodkin, tend settled in Montgomery County in 1823. They had ten children. Adam was the great Fourth of July orator of his day, and had a glowing speech about George Washington, of whom he was an ardent admirer, that he delivered with great oratorical effect whenever called upon. We have obtained a copy of this speech, and present it elsewhere.
