Mary, Do you know of a connection between the Cokers in Laurens and Society Hill, S.C.?I found an excerpt of a letter from a family members research, the source was unclear but possibly "Lides' and Coker's Go West". The letter was dated 6 OCT 1845 from Mary E. Lide to Hannah L. Coker, Society Hill,, S.C. Mentions a trip to Butler Springs and "a Mr. Coker and his daughter" camped by them."They are in comfortable circumstances now from what Mr. C. told Pa about his property and to judge from appearance.He is a widower somewhere about 50.His daughter about 25, to see her you would think they were rich.I believe she put on a new dress almost everyday."This could very likely be James's son, Daniel Coker with his daughter Elmira but the letter does not state that they were related, only that they were both Cokers. Do you know of a Daniel Coker that had sons William, Thomas and James that might be a possible father for James?
