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.

re Cuz Pat (Grant) Cooper, a
~Cobb and a Sasser descendant~
Pat's's grandfather, John Cobb, was a half-
brother to Mary Jane's father, Jim Cobb,
but Pat and Mary Jane
never actually knew each other well.
IT'S A SMALL WORLD:
Pat and her husband, Dan, lived
in California for some 30 years.
Dan worked with a "Mr. Sousa" at
the same workplace for many of
those years before they discovered
that, ironically, both of them
were married into the very same
Kentucky-founded Cobb family!
