Re: Robert Cohorn b. 1792NC 1850 Hickman Tn
There may be a possibility that we could be related. I descend from an Ezekial Cothran who has been seen in records as Cohorn, Cockran and Cothran. This Ezekial had a son Robert. Ezekial was born in North Carolina about 1795. He had a brother William that went by Cohorn in census records in Lauderdale County Alabama. There father seems to be a William that was in Maury County minute records. I'm hoping to find some deed records on him in Maury County. If you think there might be a connection let me know. Here is what I believe is the family that I'm working on based on Maury County records.
William Cohorn or Cockran Children following:
Johnin Maury County minute records
Ezekial born 1795 North Carolina married Martha Keeton
William born 1797-1799 North Carolina married Sabrey Robertson
Polly born 1817 in Tennessee married Littleberry Odum
Olive married Mills Robertson
William, Polly and Olive all went to Lauderdale County Alabama.
Have you checked the Cockrans that was in the Hickman County census to see if there is a connection there also.
