If anyone has any information on William R. or W.R. Cockrum please let me know.He is my great grandfather on my father's side of the family.
He has become a stumbling block. Noone in my family has any information regarding his actual birthplace, parents, or siblings. I cannot even find him on any available census's in the area of Randolph county.
I do know that he married Dora Ann Goodman in that county on Dec. 8, 1890 and pretty much know all there is to know from there on.
He may have been an engineer, building railroads and bridges.He died from what was probably t.b. in 1916 along the way to California in Cuervo, N.M.
Please if you are familiar with this branch of the family email me whenever possible. thanks
