List of Descendants
  • (1) Woodard "Woody" Cobb
    b: Abt 1903

    Woodard's family moved from Oklahoma to California many years
    ago, and he always yearned to go back to his beloved Oklahoma.
    In his later years, his brothers Jesse and Charles, and Charles's
    wife, were taking him back to Oklahoma in their RV, when he
    died on the way. They were at an RV camp near Springerville,
    Arizona, when he died, and he was buried in the Springerville
    area. Woodard was never to see his Oklahoma again.

    Rachel's grandmother, Loo-oz (Philpot-Byrley) Cobb, was full-blood
    Cherokee, but Rachel was named after her "legendery Cherokee ancestress,"
    Rachel (Black) Cobb, reputed to be at least half-Cherokee, who was wife to

    Samuel "Ambrose" Cobb, and ggg-grandmother to this Rachel namesake.

    The following narrative
    is excerpts and paraphrases from information provided by
    Cuz Glenn Earl Perry,
    a Cobb and a Sasser descendant
    (and Glenn's mother, Pearl (Taylor) Perry, is sister to Don Taylor.)
    Rachel's husband, Don Taylor, left his home, in Kentucky, at an early age,
    to work in Bedford, Indiana. It was there he met and married Rachel, and
    their first two children were born there. Her family had originally moved
    from Kentucky to Oklahoma, living for many years in Oklahoma, before moving
    to Indiana. When the family decided to move back to Oklahoma, Rachel was
    expecting her third child, and didn't want to be so far away from her folks
    when she gave birth. So, she, Don and their two children also moved to
    Oklahoma. Shortly after they moved there, Don died of "leaky heart valves,"
    a month before their baby was born. Rachel had never met Don's parents, who
    were in Kentucky (unless maybe it was when she was a child). She eventually
    made a trip to Kentucky and met Don's mother, but didn't get to meet his
    father (the person driving the car Rachel was in, insisted upon returning to
    Oklahoma too soon). Over the years, she kept in contact with her Uncle
    Jesse's widow, Daisy (Sasser) Cobb. Daisy was a 2nd cousin to both of Don's
    parents. Daisy and Jesse were living in Oklahoma when Don died, but later
    moved back to Kentucky. Rachel eventually moved to Redlands, California,
    where, presumably, she stayed for the remainder of her life.
