James Cobb settled on Rocky Creek, Wateree River Jan 7, 1758. My Cobb Family lived on Cobb's Mill Pond on what is now Fort Jackson.  Jesse De Bruhl Cobb (b. Oct 31, 1835 d. Sep 27, 1915) fought in the Civil Was for the Confederacy as a member of Company C, Second South Carolina cavalry.He was married to Rebecca Alice Fetner (b.Jan 21, 1842, d. Jun 15, 1904)  their 4Th child was  John Henry Cobb. who was my Grandfather.  My Great grandmother Rebecca  Alice was descended from John Abehart Fetner who served in the Revolutionary War as a fifer at age 17.  This   family  branch came from Hans Vettiner (date unknown late 1600's) from Neuffen Germany 18 miles s. Stuttgart. John Howell has pictures of Jesse De Bruhl and Rebecca Alice Cobb on his site.  The picture  of Jesse De Bruhl  is on display in the South Carolina Museum in the Civil War section in the weapons section. If any one is researching the line of Thomas Edward Cobb (b. 1787) and Mary Van Dora Cole please contact me. My Father was Gary Cobb last child of John Henry and Frances Adeline Hammond.
