Charles Valentine was my dad's great uncle "Val".He is buried in Hammonds cemetery near Sesser.His head stone is marked C.V. Cochram.Apparently, that's the way they spelled the name until sometime in the early 1900's.Uncle Val was born Apr. 1885 and died in Oct 1922.
My dad's grandfather was Hiram Valentine Cockrum b. 1883 d. 1946.He was the son of Benjamin Franklin Cockrum.
