Cobb, Nelson, lawyer and second chief justice of the State of Kansas, was born at Windham, N. Y., March 19, 1811. He received a liberal education, studied law and was admitted to the bar. He came to Kansas in 1859 and on Nov. 28, 1862, was appointed chief justice by Gov. Robinson to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Gen. Thomas Ewing. He served on the supreme bench until Jan. 5, 1864, and while there wrote the opinions of the court in sixteen cases. In 1864 he was one of the presidential electors on the Democratic ticket, and in 1866 was nominated by the National Union State convention for chief justice, but was defeated. Mr. Cobb died at Kansas City, Mo., June 10, 1894.
