Elkanah COBB
Mary WILLARD
Husband:  Elkanah COBB
Birth:  21 Jan 1746/7, Norwich, New London Co., CT
Death:  10 Aug 1795, Pawlet, Rutland Co., VT
Father:  Gideon COBB (1718-1794)
Mother:  Abigail DYER / DYAR (c1723-1808)
Marriage:
Wife:  Mary WILLARD
Birth:  in or bef. 1755
Death possibly:  1800-1810, Pawlet, Rutland Co., VT
Father:  Jonathan WILLARD
Mother:  Sarah CHILDS
Children:
1.  Gideon Dyer COBB, b. 11 Sep 1773, Stillwater, Essex? Co., NY 
2.  Joshua COBB, b. 27 May 1776, Stillwater, Essex? Co., NY
3.  Sarah COBB, b. 16 Jul 1778, Canterbury, Windham Co., CT; d.s.p. 15 Mar 1795

born in Pawlet, Rutland Co., VT:
4.  Willard COBB, b. 17 Mar 1781; m. Amey/Amy ALLEN*, d/o Caleb ALLEN & Reliance HOLLEY
5.  Elkanah COBB, b. 13 Sep 1783
6.  John COBB, b. 6 Apr 1786 
7.  James Dyer COBB, b. 24 Sep 1789
8.  Mary "Polly" COBB, b. 16 Feb 1791
9.  Sophia COBB, b. 1790-1800

*Amy is said to be a cousin of Vermont Revolutionary War hero, Ethan ALLEN (1738-1789), but in order for two people to be cousins, they must have a common ancestor at some point.  I've examined the pedigrees of Caleb ALLEN and Ethan ALLEN (at least, the ones online), and at no point do they intersect, so the legend of Amy ALLEN's connection to Ethan ALLEN would appear to be false.

These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 10-15 1784-1790 = James (b. 1789)
2 females 9 or under 1790-1800 = Sophia
= Polly (b. 1791)
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1755 = Mary
Also listed:  "Cobb John" (22101-20111-00) and "Cobb Joshua" (20201-23110-00).  The list was alphabetized, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possibe.

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):  Mary is not found as head-of-household.  COBBs in Rutland Co. were: Allen in Pittsford, Ebenezer in Fair Haven, Esther and John in Orwell, Joshua and Willard in Pawlet.  Checking the numbers (images online at Ancestry.com), Mary is not living with either Joshua or Willard, so it's possible she has died, though she could be living elsewhere with one of her other children.
