    Babe's half-sister, Barb Tuttle
    "Barbourville Mountain Advocate"
    April 15, 1949 (p. 1)
    Mrs. Barbara Tuttle, 67, died April 10,
    at her home at Tedders from a heart attack.
    Funeral services were held at the home
    Monday afternoon at three o'clock.
    Interment was in the Tuttle Cemetery
    under the direction of
    the Martin-Swarts Funeral Home.
    Mrs. Tuttle is survived by her parents,
    Mr. and Mrs Isaac Tuttle,
    and a number of other relatives.
    Her husband preceded her in death
    a few years ago.
    per Glenn E. Perry:
    The Tuttle Cemetery referred to in Barb's obituary is presumably
    the graveyard on the hill at Tuttle Branch, Tedders, Knox Co, KY,
    close to where Barb and her nephew Mitchell lived.
    Aside for one rough stone with the name "Jones" scratched on it,
    there are no markers there.

    Can you identify what family branch these belong in?
    Both of these headstones are in the
    Cobb Cemetery, Tedders, Knox Co, KY
    Eliza's Cobb last name is probably her married name
    (her headstone is next to Abe Cobb's grave).
    We're guessing that J.H.C. stands for John Henry Cobb.
    If you can identify where these folks tie in to the family,
    please leave an entry about it in the Cobb-Sasser guestbook!
