South Carolina Cockfields, Pee Dee region
Glad to see this forum! I have a few Cockfields starting with William Cockfield in 1750 who was father of Josiah Joseph Cockfield 1786-1836.
Josiah Joseph married Hannah Singletary and they settled in Williamsburg Co., SC. Their children were:
Ann who md Stephen Duncan Jones
Agnes, Hanna, William Josiah who moved to LA and married a Compere woman, Lesenius duncan Cockfield who moved to LA and married the Compere woman's sister, Josiah W Cockfield who married Rosa Anna Timmons (my connection), Ebenezer, and Cleland Washington Cockfield who moved to TN. I do not know where they came from. I do know that more Cockfields show up on my Dad's side in GA. Marriage into the Timmons family seemed popular in later generations of those staying in SC. They lived in Williamsburg and Marion Co.
