Family History


Jacob Benjamin Cochran was my dad's grandfather. He was born in 1822 Ohio and was in the Civil War. His grandfather Alexander Cochran of Pennsylvania was in the American Revolution. Jacob married Clora Jane Miller about 1879 in Iowa and had Frank Delbert when they settled in Hill City Kansas.  Frank D. married Luella Coonfield in Arkansas and had my Dad in 1927. Luella's family came from Kentucky, her mom was Lattie Cedonia Little, a daughter of John Wright Little and Catherine Crigler.  Catherine's parents were Catherine Roby and Abraham Crigler.  The Coonfields were in Kentucky by 1800 and so were the others.

Meanwhile in Alabama about 1826, Peter Bozeman settled in Hope Hull and all along through Ramer and Dublin were found our Elisha Anderson, Abner Broadway, Calvin Sellers, John Stephens, and after the Civil War came Josiah Marion McClain.    About that time John Fenn settled in Tuskegee and had a son William Franklin Fenn who married Anna Lou Stone in 1893 and had a son Cecil Earl around 1900.  William worked on his uncle Matthew Fenn's plantation in Eufaula but Anna divorced him and left about 1901 with Cecil.  Her parents were born in Macon County, Mary Ann Hendrick and Augustus Marvin Fenn.

In 1861 Peter Edward Bozeman married Nancy Jane Anderson and worked their 40 acre cotton farm in Dublin.  His mother was Martha Hill born about 1800 South Carolina and they lived near her brother John Hill, who created Hills Chapel, the church, the school and the cemetery.  It is possible that their father the elder John Hill once lived there as well.

Nancy's son John Thomas Bozeman married Alice Lorena Stephens and she had Lorena Emma Bozeman in 1890, and Ethel Mae about 1892.  Alice died birthing a son in 1894. Then John married Sarah Ellen Bean and several more children came including our Uncle Bob.

Lorena married Charles Allen McClain, the son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah McClain.  Josiah was born in Georgia to "Anna" and James McClain.  James' grandparents came from Virginia in the 1700s, Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain, found in 1800 Spartanburg SC.

Lorena McClain had Alice and she married Cecil Earl Fenn Carter. His mother Anna Lou Stone Fenn had remarried and gave him the Carter name.  Cecil had served several years in the Army in El Paso but returned after his mother died and stayed in Montgomery near his sickly father Wm Fenn who had left the farm and retired near the train station with most of his other children who began to work for the railroad.

Alice and Cecil lived on Columbus Street and had three children including my mother born in 1934, Anne.   Anne grew up to marry Frankie Cochran.   Anne's daughter married Charles Brooks.  His family also came from downtown Montgomery around 1900 where his grandpa James E.  Brooks worked for the State, but his daddy worked for the railroad.  James was the son of Annie Ballard and John Brooks of Tennessee and he married Susie Mae Cooper, the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Carter and Levi Benjamin Cooper.

Susie named her son James Jr and he married Mary Ella Thornton who's ancestors are found in Elmore County in the 1800s.

  Our ancestors met before the Civil War. They came together in Montgomery sharing cotton plantations in the fields you now see when passing through Montgomery on I-65. Yet after the war this land was worthless, being destroyed as Wilsons Raiders burned a path through the state but these families struggled to revive as much as they could. I found an old cemetery with some tombstones dating back to 1793 on this property and then tried to trace their descendants across town. In 1900 I find them again in downtown Montgomery near the train station as many others had migrated into our lineage and they once again worked together. In fact my mother in law in 1950 had taken in the widow of my great grandfather when she had no place to go.  My husband's cousin Sue Carol on his mother's side married one of my mother's Bozeman Cousins and his father's great grandpa Thomas Carter was once married to another of our Bozeman Cousins in Hope Hull.   Our families were always close, we just did not realize how very close.  My father came from Kansas and married my mom in Montgomery in 1951, while he was stationed at Maxwell AFB after injuries from being shot in the Korean War - his lineage was partly in Pennsylvania and South Carolina before migrating into Kentucky and Ohio and then on into the midwest.  Together we have dozens of grandfathers in the American Revolution and the Civil War.

.I have uploaded records, photos, documents to the web and most can be found through the searchbox below if the links still work. Some servers keep changing things around and items get lost but eventually if you search within http://www.usgenweb.com/ the information will appear.  I had once posted on aol hometown pages but after ten years of hard labor, they deleted that server and so did rootschat.com, so while the freepages are available they do hold a lot of wonderful genealogy, but once they are gone, so is our work.

There are actually some old fish ponds in south Montgomery County where you know who George Bush comes to go fishing with old friends..........So very many of their children and grandchildren were intermarried, that we may all be cousins way back when.

Peggy's story was that Ethel and Jason had several children at the time, all living in a tent on this farm, while they built their new home around 1930. It seemed to be one of the oldest homes still standing in 2005. Ethel and Jace are buried down the road at Hills Chapel Cemetery on the Long Road close to her father John Thomas Bozeman and his 4th wife Sara Ellen Bean. Sara raised these children after their mother died young and told them stories, like she was related to the hanging Judge Roy Bean. She was a wonderful stepmother who also gave them four more siblings before she passed away. Many of these descendants still remain in Dublin, Ramer, Grady, and Hickory Grove.
