I am a descendant of the Cockey-Deye family. I have tried to find your specific ancestor in my records but are having some difficulty. The Cockey and Owings family married into themselves many times and Thomas is one of the most common names in the family. I would love to help you if you can give me more information. Do you happen to know the name of his Father or Mother? Both families were known for marrying into each other, and within their own family. I will give you as much information as I have, which could be alot if there is a connection between our branches.
