Thursday, January 03, 2002 2:09 PMDear Delores ,
Just located your information on the internet.I am a decendent ofDavid C. Cocke's Henry.I have the the genealogy composed by Charles Coke and Charles Urban has given me some of his information.I also have the Henry will of 1776 or 77which I have a problem with as my Henry was born a few months after the will was made.Surely, he knew his son was to be a father.Also, David's son William was supposedly the oldest. I have contactaed Cheryl Huff to help clarify this for me.
However, something in your information interests me.I have a biliograph sketch by a David Coake in a Vermilion Co. Illinois 1890 book that indicates David C. Cocke came to the Yadkin Valley with his father at the age ofthree.This seems to follow some of your findings.I realizebibliography sketches are sometime tailored to meet the needs of the author.However, sometimes there is a thread of truth.
In case you are wondering about Coake versus Cocke check in Charles Coke's records.He knew that Henry had a son who was Henry J. and was a Cox , a Coake and sometimes a Coke.
Thanks for your help.

Monday, September 22, 2003 2:45 PMHi Delores,I am descended from Henry Cocke/Rebeccah Flannary>Phoebe Cox/James F. Bailey>Eliz. Emma Bailey/John Littleton Roe "Jack">Henry Roe/ Martha Jane Cline>Wm. Jonas Roe "Joe"/Rose Gilbert>George Henry Roe/Vivian Denney>Arline Roe/J.T. Voyne Cull "Trixie">Karen Dolores Cull/Rt. Serna.
I made the mistake of not reserving a particular message on one of the genealogy sites about our line of Cockes.The message would make a big difference in our pedigree, and I would like your thoughts about it.I have posted the essence of what was in that particularly Cocke message on different sites, but it really doesn't seem to concern anyone by the response, or lack of, that I have gotten.I will continue trying to locate that message so that I can know for sure if we are descendants of the Cocke family.
The info was as follows:In one of the Cocke bibles, possibly Henry Cocke's, it said that a brother had gone to court and put in a request for the Cocke name to be changed.I do not know which Cocke or which Cocke brother.I do not know which state or what year.After a long time, the court finally granted the request.These are the details of the reasons, but I can't recall the exact order or the words = <1835 or 1836> Tenn. Act of "ta lis gen", Eaton.
Now, is that something casual, or does it say that our line of Cockes were actually Eatons?TA LIS GENis likely a Latin term meaning what?How many generations does it apply to?
I have noticed on different sites that a number of Cocke/Cox people have changed their names, and those researching or descendants are posting their speculations as to the possible reasons for the changes.Maybe it has something to do with court action.
So, I seem to be the only one who has come to a dead stop in recording the pedigree of this line beyond Henry Cocke.
What do you think?If I ever find where that person entered that info,
believe me, I will contact her.If it is unquestionable, I'll post it.I would like to locate her message.I have gone through google and every siteI could think of, but no luck.
Bye, kckaren serna <email@example.com>
