COBOS, Mareelino, Mexican bandit, born in Manresa, Spain, about 1825; died in December, 1860. He immigrated to Mexico about 1845, and enrolled himself in the famous guerillas commanded by Father Javanta, with whom he served during the whole campaign against the Americans (1847-'8). A few years afterward he served in the reactionary bands during the civil war, and was noted for his extreme boldness and terrible cruelties. At the head of his 300 guerillas, all well equipped and mounted, he became the terror of the farmers and inhabitants of small towns. His lieutenants were then Gonzalez (afterward made a general and president of Mexico) and Buitron, who was shot by the republicans upon the downfall of Maximilian's empire. It is said that Cohos ordered the assassination of the Mexican general Santos Degollado, and many other monstrous crimes. The battle of Calpulalpan, fought between the troops of the conservative and liberal parties (21 to 24 December, 1860), decided the contest in favor of the latter, and the victors ruled the country until the French army invaded Mexico in 1863. Cobos, who had taken part in this battle, fled to the mountains with a few of his men, but some rancheros followed, captured and beheaded him, taking his head in triumph to the City of Mexico.
