Taken from Joe Cobb's book on Bertie Co. in response to Frank Lyman's inquiry concerning Stephen Buck.
1.Stephen Buck m. Edward Cobb's widow, Elizabeth, who was formerly a Collins.
2.At the May court of 1784 a deed of sale of a tract of land from James Baker and Mary Wiulliams to Stephen Buck was proven by the oath of John Lawrence.3
3.A deed dated Jan. 29, 1795 aand witnessed by Stephen Buck and Thomas Harden.
4.May court of 1784, permission was granted to Stephen Buck, Henry Cobb, and Thomas Whitmell Pugh to build a grist and sawmill across Bear Swamp. The same court appointed Luke Collins, Thomas Sutton, John Hopkins and Edward Griffin to measure off one acre of land from the property of Henry Cobb for the purpose of building the grist and saw mill
5.Edward Cobb died in 1778 after he was listed on the 1778 tax list. Stephen Buck m. Edward's widow on the 6th Nov. 1779. Buck filed an inventory of the estate of Edward on the 9th Nov., 1779. On the 11th 1779 Stephen buck, Wm. Lawrence, and Andrew South were bonded in the amopunt of 3000 lbs. in order for Stephen Buck to be the administrator of the estate of Edward Cobb.
6.there is no proof that Elizabeth was a Collins except that the Collins family was closely tied to the Cobbs.

This probably won't help at all, but I have a copy of the will of Thomas Harden dated Sept. 2, 1856 in which he leaves a Stephen Buck $5. I have no idea who this Stephen Buck is though. Just thougt I would let you know.

The Stephen Buck mentioned in the will was probably the son of the Stephen Buck of who everyone is trying to find parents and other ancestors.

Surnames: Stephen Decatur Buck 1770
I too am looking for the illusive Stephen Decatur Buck, 1770 ancestry.
Married Elizabeth Collins-Cobb.
He was an ensign in Capt Elisha Rhodes company of the First North Carolina militia commanded by Col Samuel Carves(5 June 1780).
I was wondering if their name had been changed to Buck from something else
The names I have found that it could have been according to what I have found on the web:
or maybe he was a Bastard
has anyone found any birth information on him in any record at all other then the date and the location?

Thanks to any and all who reply.
