I am looking for anyone who may have info on John Laverty COHOON.He was born about 1860 in North Carolina.He married Grace L. DEMERS in Minnisota.
The best guess I have right now for who his parents are is:John T.P.C. COHOON of Elizabeth City, Pasquotank Co., NC a physician and A.E.Virgina LAVERTY of the same place.It appears that John T.P.C. COHOON served in the Civil War and died in the 1860's.
The reason this looks like the best bet for John Laverty COHOON's parents is of course that Virginia's maiden name is LAVERTY.The 1860 census shows:
J.T.P.C. COHOON 24yrsDoct. of Medicine born Virginia Virginia COHOON 19yrsborn NC John P. COHOON 5/12 yrs born NC
They are living next to P.A.R.C. COHOON 52yrs physician born Virgina.I am guessing father to J.T.P.C.
