He was one of the oldest and best known citizens of Oswego County and had been ill but two weeks. Born in Jefferson County April 16, 1840, he came to this section when a young man. Mr. Cobb married Miss Emma Bentley, and a sister of Mrs. Cobb, Mary Bentley, became the wife of William Samson, who was a nephew of the late Ira Noyes. One of the finest pieces of farm property in eastern Richland township came to Mr. Samson from the Noyes estate, and after the death of his wife, William Samson and William Cobb resided together and worked the farm which eventually came into the Cobb family. More recently the son, John Cobb, purchased the Henry Seeley homestead, known as the William D. Jamerson property on the Ridge road in Sandy Creek. This brought under one management these fine farms in a high state of cultivation. William Cobb is survived by a son and daughter, John Cobb and Mrs. Foster Thomas of Orwell. Prayer was offered at family home at 12:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon and last rites at 2 o'clock, from Church of Christ, Richland, conducted by the Rev. Albert E. Lawrence of Pulaski.
