On Thursday, October 14 at 10:30 a.m. the Barrier Islands Center’s Coffee Hour Lecture Series will present The History Of The Cobb Family And Cobb’s Island with speaker Dr. Lloyd Newberry, author of Wings of Wonder: The Remarkable Story of the Cobb Family and the Priceless Decoys They Created on Their Island Paradise.
Dr. Newberry offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Cobb family who settled on Cobb Island in the 1800s. Dr. Newberry’s talk details the thrilling adventures of three Cobb family generations on their island paradise of fishing and waterfowl hunting.
The lifelike decoys they produced are some of the most highly sought after by collectors and historians today. But equally interesting are the many adventures that this family experienced for a century before a major hurricane put an end to it all. After his talk, Lloyd will sign copies of his book, Wings of Wonder.
