I am the great grand-daughter of Civil War Vet, Jacob Cochran. His father William and grandfather Alexander were the only two Cochrans of Pennsylvania who migrated into Guernsey Ohio about 1820. No others are found there until their children came along and became their own heads of families.

My ancestor search finds several other grandfathers who served in the Civil War.

Jacob Benjamin Cochran born 1822 Guernsey Ohio married Clora Jane Miller of Illinois, however his first wife Mariah White left him six daughters, when she died in Iowa Territory after the 1870 census. Clora Jane is his wife on the 1880 census and later gives him a son they name Frank Delbert Cochran ( my grandfather ).

Clora Jane was the daughter of Mary Clara Parker and James Madison Miller. Jacob was the son of Martha Henderson and William Cochran of Pennsylvania who had settled into the Oxford Township of Guernsey Ohio.

The Millers are referenced in Milo Custers Book of Rockingham Virginia, regarding Reverend Alexander Miller.

Parents of Mary Clara Parker were Rosannah Lemmon and Wanton Horatio Parker and his parents were Sarah Tefft and Archelaus Parker of New York Indian Country.

Frank Delbert Cochran married Luella Ellen Coonfield in 1914 Arkansas. Her son Frankie Lavern Cochran born 1927 moved to Alabama in 1949 and died in 1996. Her son Freelon Lorrain Cochran died in the Korean War and her son Joy Benjamin Cochran died of melanoma.

Lattie Cedonia Little married Benjamin Wallace Coonfield in Arkansas; Ben's parents were Benjamin Wylie Coonfield ( Civil War ) and Martha Frances Young of Indiana.

Lattie's parents were Mary Catherine Crigler and John Wright Little ( born 1843 and served in the Civil War ) of Shepherdsville, Bullitt County, Kentucky.[1]

Mary's parents were Catherine Roby and Abraham Crigler of Kentucky. John's parents were Catherine Wright and Hiram Lucius Little of Daviess County Kentucky.

Parents of Abraham were Lydia Carpenter and Owen Crigler. The Criglers are referenced in the Germanna Colony of Virginia.
