William Hiram "Willie" COCHRAN, b. 2/10/1889 in Austin, Travis Co., TX, married Blanche and had son William "Billy", is the second of five children of Hiram Walter Cochran and Eva "Evie" Fisher.The youngest, Eva Cochran, b. 4/07/1900 in Lampasas, Lampasas Co., TX, married a John Witchy - I noticed you listed that name and might have pictures and/or documents?The 4th was Clarence Charles Cochran, b. 7/16/1896, also in Lampasas; he married a Mary Lou SCOTT March 4, 1930, with daughter Dorene b. 2/12/1931 in Dallas.This information was from Mary Lou Scott Cochran, in a letter from 1969.
If Mary Lou was a Witchy, did she have a prior marriage?
Hiram Walter Cochran had a brother, Albert Cochran, and a sister, Sarah Eldora "Dora" Cochran; our line is descended through Dora.We have most of Hiram Walter's descendency, all of Dora's, but very limited on Albert's.
Family legend is that these three were left orphans in 1874 by the deaths of parents John Walter Cochran and Rebecca or Rachel White Cochran.We have been unable to verify this, nor backtrace from here yet.
Please let me know your connection in our tree and hopefully we can exchange information.
