I've never heard of Hickerson Cosby. There are several references
to Frances Cosby. (Let me check them & get back to you.) Of all
the names you mentioned, Benjamin Robinson stands out. One of
my ancestors, Mildred Burbridge, m. 1st Hezekiah Ellis, 2nd Benjamin
Robinson. Of the second marriage, there was a Benjamin Robinson, Jr., who
m. Polly Beatty.
Were any of your ancestors from the Spotsylvania Co., VA area?
<< would you have any knowledge of a Mary Polly Cosby,
dau.of Hickerson Cosby and Nancy Ann Harris.
and perhaps sister to a Frances"Fanny" Cosby
I have a Mary Polly Cosby who married James Houchins
They had ten children, many of whom died in Ohio.
