Sam's Military Service
It is unconfirmed that the Samuel Cobb referred to
in the following history excerpt is the above Samuel,
but the dates and location fit.
War of 1812
According to "A History of Knox County, Kentucky," by K.S. Sol Warren
(Barbourville, KY: Daniel Boone Festival, Incorporated, 1976, p. 167),
was a private in the 8th Company, under Captain Ambrose Arthur,
part of the 13th Regiment of Kentucky Volunteers
commanded by Colonel William Dudley.

The company was formed in Barbourville as early as March 1812 and
marched during the spring of 1813. The company also included
Cornelius Taylor
[ancestor of the Stinking Creek Taylors].

Gathering at Cincinnati, the 13th Regiment was one of four such units
commanded by General Green Clay that marched on to northern Ohio to
relieve General William Henry Harrison on the Maumee River. The enemy
was defeated at Fort Meigs, but, in what came to be called the battle of
Dudley's Defeat (May 5, 1813), the Kentucky force was trapped and nearly
wiped out after it pursued the British and Indians with excessive zeal.
Taylor in particular was wounded and taken prisoner. What was left of the
regiment managed to escape across the river and joined the 10th Kentucky
Regiment under Colonel William Boswell. (Based on Warren, pp. 160-169.)

~Cobb Family Migration~
In about 1840,
Sam and Kizzie moved to Macon Co, MO.

Sam worked as a guide,
taking groups of emigrants from Kentucky to Missouri.
Apparently, no one is sure what happened to him,
he just disappeared while traveling.
After Sam's (assumed) death, Kizzie moved to Marion Co, IA.
