I am also looking into the Wilde family in Cocke County TN (where I live). I just started (actually trying to go another way around the Cogdill family). You would not happen to have a jake Wilde who may have had a child named Thomas with a lady named Mary S. Cogdill, would you? Mary was born about 1858 in TN. They would be my husband's gr-gr-grandparents. Also, when I stop by the library, if I find info on a margaret wild or david stokely, I will send it to you. The Stokely family started Stokely Cannery called Stokely-Van Camp, then Hunts, and now Con Agra which is still in business. Is this the Stokely family you are searching?
