Query: Descendant of Ambrose & Ann Hunt Cobbs

Dolores Cobb Phifer writes, via CM to Greg & Andrew Burton:
Hello Greg and Andrew Burton, I am a direct descendant of Ambrose and Ann (nee Hunt) Cobbs of Kent England who was the original landowner/Headright of the original 350 acres that the home known as Cobbs Hall was built on. It is believed that Cobbs Hall was built on the foundation of the original home of Ambrose and Ann Cobbs. My dad has participated in the COBBS/COBB DNA Study.

It would be neat to get together with you guys there at the property next time you visit. Most of us... me and some of my immediate family still live here in Pennsylvania... not so far away.
