    Wilbur, Clara, & Family

    During a 1999 Cobb-Chaney Family Reunion,
    a very special "extra" event was celebrated,
    the event of Wilbur's & Clara's 70th wedding anniversary.
    James Welch "Jim" Cobb (who is a family genealogist),
    presented the couple with a very special gift.
    Prior to the reunion, Jim contacted all of their children
    and obtained a storehouse of genealogical information on the
    Wilbur/Clara branch, all of which he combined with data he'd
    already accumulated over the years on Wilbur's parents' branch,
    the Speed/Hattie branch. Jim then created a book, entitled,
    which contained information that was current up to the day of
    the reunion. He presented Wilbur and Clara with a copy
    (as well as copies to all of their children)
    as his anniversary gift to them. What a fantastic gift!
    And Jim provided us with that great photo above,
    which was taken at the reunion.
    Jim is Wilbur's 2nd cousin-once removed, and is son of
    Tom Welch Cobb, and grandson to Speed's brother,
    Ernest Cobb.
