    buried: Red Oak Cemetery, Tribbey area, Cleveland Co, OK

    but actually, he was 23 and she was 13 when they married.

    The following narrative
    is excerpts and paraphrases from
    FAMILY STORIES
    as told by John and Liz's oldest daughter,
    Mary Jane (Cobb) Womack
    (when she was 86 years old), to her niece,
    Glenda Sue (Harmon) Scully.
    Glenda Sue put the stories in writing, then generously
    shared copies of her transcripts with family members.
    Their first four children were born in Kentucky,
    where the family remained for a time.
    John's brother, Nathan Cobb, sent word of good crops in Oklahoma,
    and a large group of Cobb families (6 or 8 families, including
    John's and Liz's) chartered a train and went to an area about eight miles
    southwest of Tribbey, Cleveland Co, OK.
    John's family stayed on at "Nay's" place for a time until John rented land.
    He then bought a school tent for the family to live in,
    which they did move into. They stayed in Oklahoma one year.
    During that year, they were all sick with "chills," and other illnesses.
    John moved his ailing family back to Kentucky
    to the same area they had lived before. He cut logs and built their home.
    Their illnesses lingered on. Some had Scarlet Fever and "Dropsy."
    Their fifth child was born during the time they were back in Kentucky.
    John planted a corn crop that year and when it was hard enough to grist,
    he sold it, put his family back on the train, and took them back to Oklahoma,
    to the same area they'd left from just a year earlier.
    Oklahoma was now "home" and John would never go back to Kentucky.
    They went on to have four more children, all born in Oklahoma.
