Submitted by Lotus D. Cirilo.


An important source for a portion of this data is the book John Cockerham and His Descendants by Nell Sheppard Kauffman, published by Copy-Right, Inc., Georgetown, Texas in the year 1987. Data therein confirms some of our own research. Our research leads us to question some conclusions in the book, however we consider it an invaluable tool. Two other Cockerham researchers whose work has contributed to our own is Don Brownlee of California and Bob Valentine. Other sources are referenced within the text, with endnotes at bottom of page. Records excerpted below include original language and spelling.


Generation No. 1

1. JOHN2 COCKERHAM (WILLIAM1) was born 1735, possibly in NC. He died 1843 in Amite Co., MS. He married ELIZABETH, surname unknown.

Notes for JOHN COCKERHAM:
John Cockerham died intestate. The administration of his estate are in the probate records of Amite Co., MS, file 34 [1844-1847]. His children and grandchildren are named as heirs.

All that we know of John Cockerham's parentage is that his father's name was William and that William COCKERHAM died in Barnwell Co., SC. Each of John COCKERHAM's older children, Henry, John Jr., and Nancy named a daughter Brambley, which suggests that John Sr. may have had two marriages, his first wife named Brambley and his second wife named Elizabeth. The name Brambley was carried on down in later generations of the three oldest children but not in the line of the younger children.

        Children of JOHN COCKERHAM and ELIZABETH are:
 i. PHOEBE3 COCKERHAM, m. JAMES SANDERS, Bef. 1844.  ii. SARAH COCKERHAM.  iii. THOMAS COCKERHAM , SR., b. Abt. 1762; d. Abt. 1848; m. [Unknown].   Notes for THOMAS COCKERHAM , SR. :
Very little is known about Thomas. The 1800 census of Barnwell District, SC lists
1 F +45 [wife?] 1 M 16-26, 1 M under 10, and 1 F 16-26. Nothing is known of his
wife and children. He was one of the surviving heirs of his father, John Sr. who
died in 1843-44 in Amite Co. MS.
