My Cochran's come from Patric Cochran, Irish immigrant, probably born ca.
1755.  Had son John Sr, est. birth, 1775 m. Nelly Maneese.  John Whitsett Cochran ,
born 1798 in TN, married Rebecca Fly, daughter of Elisha Fly Jr.  Marriage
recorded in Williamson Co TN courthouse, June 19,1818. Great grandson
of Patric (Ammon Cochran) kept travel log/diary that claims Patric was
grandfather to Ammon's father, John.  One of the two John's was killed by a
colored man in TN, probably John Sr.  Also WFT has Patric as ancestor to
this family.  Starting from me, going backwards in time....
