Crittenden and Cochran(e)
I am seeking the parents of William Crittenden Cochran born abt 1815 in Somerset, Pulaski, Kentucky. Any suggestions would be welcome. I think his mother may have been a Crittenden, a prominent family in Kentucky.
The family story is that William's Crittenden Cochran's father was Glass Cochran; but it is also felt that that may have been a nickname or alias. Glass was supposed to have run away from Dublin, Ireland at about age 12 (c. 1796).
Clearly, "Glass" and spouse were in Pulaski County when Wm. was born about 1815.
William went on to marry Mary McMahan and lived in Illinois.
