Re: Naomi (Bea) Cockrum FranklinCo.,ILL 1890
Yes, it is the same Ben Franklin Cockrum.
The Cockrum Family in America book shows Mary Whitlock born 1850 in Georgia.No info on her parents.
Their son, James, was my great uncle.Jim was a "faith healer" known locally as "Rubbin' Jim".He practiced laying on of hands and lots of folk medicine.
Hope that helps.
