WALTON B. COBB, D.D.S.
If true to his profession and earnest in his efforts to enlarge his sphere of usefulness, the man who spends his
life in an effort to alleviate human suffering and distress in any way is indeed a benefactor of his kind, for
to such men as Dr. Walton B. Cobb, well known dentist of Lemoore, are entrusted the comfort and safety and in some
cases the lives of those who place themselves under his care. Walton B. Cobb was born in Fowler, Fresno county,
California, on the 28th day of November, 1887. He attended the grade schools and then entered the high school in
Sanger, California, from which he was graduated. Having determined to devote his life to the dental profession,
he took the two year course in the University of California at Berkeley, followed by the full course in dentistry
in the University of Southern California, from which he was graduated in 1915, with the degree of Doctor of Dental
Surgery. He immediately came to Lemoore and entered into practice, in which he has been successful to a very gratifying
degree. Careful, painstaking and conscientious in everything he does, he has won the confidence and good will of
the people of the community and is in the enjoyment of a large and representative patronage. Dr. Cobb has been
wisely economical and has invested his money in real estate, being now the owner of three ranches. One, known as
the Island ranch, is devoted to alfalfa, while the other two, the Del Rey ranch and the ranch in Fowler, are devoted
to vineyards and fruit.
Dr. Cobb was married to Miss Ovilla McHaley, and they are the parents of three children: Carol, James and George.
Dr. Cobb is a member of the San Joaquin Valley Dental Association. Fraternally he is affiliated with the Knights
of Pythias, in the local lodge of which he has held office; the Foresters of America; the Woodmen of the World;
and the Modern Woodmen of America.
