Judith Cobb was born about 1772 in Eastham, Massachusetts, baptized on 3 August 1772.  She died on 26 September 1850 in Brewster.  She married Benjamin Crosby on 14 September 1793 in Harwich to Benjamin Crosby, just two years before he died in Africa.  He was born on 1 February 1768 in Harwich, the son of Elisha Crosby and Phebe Hopkins.  

Elisha Crosby is my first cousin, 7 generations removed.  His grandparents, John Crosby and Hannah Bangs, are my 7 x great grandparents.  Elisha's mother was Mary Crosby.  Her grandparents, Thomas Crosby and Sarah Unknown are my 8x great grandparents.  Phebe Hopkins's great grandfather, Giles Hopkins, came on the Mayflower in 1620 with his father, Stephen Hopkins!
