I am looking for information on ther above three names.I have considerable information on the BYNUM line.I am trying to obtain more information on Samuel T COBB born abt 1804 and his wife Nancy T born abt 1808. Both were born in South Carolina. They and their family were shown in the 1850 Desoto Co. census. Their son Bayless Earl COBB was born Oct 26, 1827 in Kentucky. On Dec. 22, 1851 in Desoto Co. he married Francis E JOHNSON ( JOHNSTON). She was born abt 1836 in Tenn. They had a girl , Wllie L, born in MS about 1856. I would like as much information on Francis and the girl Willie as possible.I have considerable information on the COBB's from Bayless on down. I am willing to send the Bynum and COBB information I have to any one requesting it

Samuel P. Johnson and Martha E. Reed/Reid were living in Desota Co. MS in 1850. They married in Tishomingo Co. Dec. 1848. This family moved to Lincoln Co. AR.
I am searching for the parents and other family of Samuel P. Johnson. He was born in TN in 1820,and his family may have come from the Carolinas.

Surnames: Cobb, Johnson
Bayless Cobb married my great-great aunt Frances Johnson who was the daughter of Lewis and Harriet Johnson. Bayless and Frances moved to Pine Bluff , Arkansas (Jefferson Co) in the 1860s. Frances died about 1863 . Bayless and the child are listed in the Jefferson Co., Arkansas census in 1870. I would like to know what happened to them. Bayless' sister Elvira Cobb married my great-great uncle John Wesley Johnson who fought in the Civil War. I am looking for a George W. Cobb who may or may not be related to Samuel. ( He married my great Aunt Lulu Johnson) Any help you could give me would be appreciated.
