  • Three sources in genealogies have her listed as Emma Ann Cobb, but her name in the 1900 census for Montague County, Texas, has her name as Emaline.  It seems more likely that her real name was Emaline, and she commonly went by Emma.

    One genealogy in Ancestry World Tree has the following information on Emaline:
    Emma Ann COBB
    Birth 20 JAN 1860 in Fannin County, TX
    Death 13 JUL 1946 in Marlow, OK
    1860 c. Fannin Co. TX Living with parents
    1870 c. Fannin Co. TX Living with parents
    Father Thaddeus Hiram COBB b: FEB 1834 in Calhoun, GA
    Mother Effie Caroline BURKE b: 28 FEB 1837 in TN

    The fact that the family are reported in Fannin County, a short time after her birth is a good indication that she was also born in Fannin, as this genealogy reports.  We know that she was in Montague later in life, and it seems the other two genealogies I found that report Montague County as the birth place are wrong.
