Berth (Cobb-Moore) Perry


On their Cobb sides, Berth & Robert are double-cousins.
Berth's father, Ambers Cobb, is a brother to
Robert's grandfather, Abe Cobb, so through Ambers,
Berth & Robert are 2nd cousins-once removed.
On Berth's mother's side (Bam's side),
Berth's gg-grandmother, Polly(Cobb) Jarvis, is a sister to
Robert's gg-grandfather, Thomas Cobb, so through Bam,
Berth & Robert are 4th cousins.
Berth & Robert are probably also cousins on the Tuttle side,
but the Tuttle inter-relationships haven't yet been confirmed.


Robert and Berth lived as farmers at Tedders, KY
(the very head of the Tuttle Branch, near the Laurel County Line).
They had four children, then shortly after they moved from
Tedders, KY, to Boone Heights, KY
(just outside of Barbourville), in about 1946, they divorced.
Robert then married Nannie (Sasser) Cobb,
who was recently divorced from Berth's brother, Daniel "Boone" Cobb.
Boone and Nannie had previously been Robert and Beth's next-door
neighbors at Tedders, KY, and had two daughters.
Robert and Nannie had no children.
They lived for several years at Gray, Knox Co, KY (near Corbin),
and Robert hauled timber in his truck to mines in Harlan County.
Then, in the 1950s, Robert and Nannie moved to Fairfield, OH,
where they lived for the rest of their lives.
Robert worked for Fisher Body in Hamilton, OH.
They were devout Pentecostals.
