Writing A Family Journal

Of Kathy LorenaCochran Brooks

http://kathybrooks.com or http://www.hometown.aol.com/kc90853/Kathy.html

Our families traveled over the sea and crossed this new land leaving few trails for us to follow their tracks. I have not been able to locate any of our

Ancestors on any of the old shipís lists as yet but there are only a very few free records on the internet for us to study.

The gateway into my internet family tree is at:

http://www.hometown.aol.com/cochransfamilytree/page29.html

And I have tons of links below where my notes and documents are preserved for others to peruse and see if they connect to us.

Bozeman, McClain, Moon, Carter, Fenn

Named after my great grandmother Lorena Bozeman McClain who was born in 1890 Ramer, Montgomery, Alabama, I have thoroughly enjoyed writing about this great lady and her heritage.

After my parents passed away and my husband died of cancer, I began to write about them and their family trees when I was unable to sleep.

Our families have traveled many miles and intertwined in the same communities, some knowing each other, many moons ago.

Family Tree of Brooks and Carter

Researching our Cochran and Carter family ancestors, I made a small introduction page to get us started ! I do have a ton of research to share with my family and will try to get it organized for easier navigation.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some of favorite websites:

Brooks, Cooper, Thornton and Hood families ( click here )

J E Brooks letter http://hometown.aol.com/carterancestry/page25.html

Lacy Bozeman Carter and Thomas Randolph Carter to the Brooks

 

James E Brooks was born to Brooks and Ballard marriage

James Edgar Brooks married Susie Mae Cooper and then their son James Jr married Mary Ella Thornton.

Mary Ella Thornton was born to Thornton and Hood marriage

Milton Elijah Thornton married Bessie Mae Hood

John Brooks, a tailor by trade, married Roxanna Permilia Smith in Tennessee about 1860; John came from Pennsylvania and his father was from Holland and his mother was from France. John's son, John, married Annie Clark Ballard in Tennessee and they moved into Alabama and are buried at Greenwood Cemetery.

Cooper, Levi Benjamin married Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Carter in 1884 in Montgomery AL and his family came from Chambers County Alabama. Sarah Cooper is buried by Annie Ballard as they both were widowed and living with James Brooks in the Montgomery census records. And of course we never traced the adoptive father of Cecil Earl Fenn Carter, and do not know if they were relatives of this Sarah Carter.

Thornton and Hood and Cooper headstones

Hood, Bessie Mae's parents were Wesley Hood and Ella Mae O. and they are all buried at Caine's Chapel Cemetery in Holtville, Alabama.

Thomas S Smith married Caroline M Bond in 1840 Maury Co, TN

John Brooke of Holland had John, Christine, Edward and Henry.

James Calvin Ballard married Willie Eudora Florence Craig in 1876 TN

Charner P. Cooper of South Carolina married Sara F. Lee in 1845 Chambers AL and had Levi Benjamin Cooper who married Sarah Elizabeth Carter.

Thomas Randolph Carter married Mary Josephine Hereferd about 1861 and had Sallie Carter. After Mary passed away, Thomas married Lacy Bozeman, daughter of Jesse Bozeman. Now we have no idea how many children Lacy Bozeman had but they would be cousins to our Lorena Bozeman McClain wouldn't they :)

Charner Cooper's mother is only known as Alsey. His father was Andrew Cooper of South Carolina.

Elija Lee of South Carolina married Malinda Phillips about 1830 in Greene County GA and the moved into Chambers County near the Coopers. There are several families listed on the census with these surnames so perhaps many came to Alabama by wagon train and settled there, as the Creek Indians began to give up their lands. Chambers County was once Creek Indian Territory.

John L Hereford married Jemima Ramey about 1818

John Wise Carter came from South Carolina to Talledega Alabama which is named for a Creek Indian Village.

William M Craig married Rebecca Carolina Pennington in 1860 in Tennessee. which is rich with several indian tribe's history.

Larkin Frances Ballard married Rowena Densy Baxter in 1847 TN

James Baxter Jr married Hester Ward of NC in 1829 TN

James Milton Ballard married Kissiah Dickens of NC abt 1820

North Carolina had several indian tribes and still has a Cherokee Indian Reservation that my daughter has visited; it has a wealth of information for genealogists.

William Pennington married Gracey

David C Craig married Catherine Connelly of NC in 1832

These families are all living close together on the census records.

This author is reminded of a story told about one ancestor who married an indian woman and gave her a Biblical name. History tells us that once the woman was baptised, she was given and English name. Of course if the groom joined her tribe, he could have received an Indian name or the mixed blood children received both, such as Chief Red Eagle who was really named William Weatherford who's family migrated from Virginia to Montgomery Alabama.

Bond

John Baptist Bond married Catherine Kitty Stone of NC in 1819 TN - X

Henry Smith of a Virginia John Smith lineage married Sinia Evans in 1819 TN and this lineage deserves much more research. ah another Stone unturned

Within my many unorganized webpages to follow, I have posted the census images and other documents recorded to prove this genealogy. Some relatives I knew personally, shared letters and phone calls with, and I have also been reading many old cards and letters from my family to document names, dates, and locations, but also ordering death certificates to prove even more.

J E Brooks letter http://www.hometown.aol.com/carterancestry/page25.html

Lacy Bozeman was the second wife of Thomas Randolph Carter in Montgomery Alabama, so his first wife Mary Josephine Hereford must be the mother of Sarah Elizabeth Carter who married Levi Benjamin Cooper out of Chambers County. Levi's daughter was Susie Mae Cooper who married John Brooks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have found the grave and headstone of Lacy's father, Jesse Bozeman born 1793, in Montgomery County Alabama and Jesse's brother William Henry Bozeman had Jesse listed as the administrator of his will and estate sale, as found in the archives building.

Osiyo

Working with family stories of the old days, tales of medicine women, and their beloved soldiers of the many wars in our country, I may not be able to prove or officially document
our Native American ancestry, yet knowing it is in my heart and in my spirit, is all that is really important.

The stories consist of one great granny who was a well known healer in Dublin, Alabama; one who could read the ashes after smoking her pipe; one aunt born with a veil over her face ( which was removed three times) which was the sign of a seer. The amazing intuition of my father, who left work immediately when it thundered, knowing that his baby was about to be born, and yes, I was born that day, in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Then we are told of Mr Ward, working in his field, as a strong
thunderstorm approached, he slammed his axe into the ground,
and the skies cleared.

Our families pass on many interesting stories but they all
spoke the English language, yet practiced good survival skills.


I would love to learn more about their culture and language, and teach our children to respect these and the ways of our elders. Yet we have the stories to pass on and the love, truth and respect that were taught to me.


When Indians learned about Christianity, they welcomed new knowledge of GOD and the afterlife with their elders. They were in awe, learning of Jesus, and of course we were told the Mormons believe that Jesus appeared to the Old America, so perhaps this faith was quite welcomed by most the tribes when the Europeans arrived.

So when they were Baptized, many were given new names to use and they are almost impossible to trace now. Some Indians changed their name more than once during their lifetime.

Our Stephens line in 1760 married an unknown full blood Cherokee woman in NC and gave her a Biblical Name.

Due to Indian unrest and the Trail of Tears, many Eastern Band Cherokee fled south or up into the mountains (OverHill) to escape the laws and disease of the white man. Our family believes that Charles Weatherford "may" have fathered our Kitty Weatherford in Virgina before moving to Alabama and fathering Chief Red Eagle. We also might connect our Cochran, Little, Wright lines to Cleopatra, sister of Pocahontas. Many of this line came from South Carolina and Virginia into Tennesee and Kentucky before moving to the Midwest.

Mother's line in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina came into Alabama for quite some time before some moved west.
(Moon, McClain, Bozeman,Anderson, Stephens)

Census takers were very prejudiced and would not recognize Indians owning property so they put most down as blacks or mulatto - in some cases the Indian feared the government finding them so they called them selves blacks or whites.

After the Trail of Tears, they believed that no Indians existed in other areas, so no Indians appeared on census records, and had to be found on the Indian Nation Rolls in Oklahoma.

Thus we hope to find our ancestors registered on the Indian Rolls, somehow, but it sure seems to be an endless journey.

Great Grandpa Jacob Benjamin Cochran and his second wife Clora Jane Miller came from Iowa to Kansas about 1890 and had Frank Delbert Cochran.

Great Grandpa Benjamin Wallace Coonfield married Lattie Cedonia Little in 1891. Lattieís father was John Wright Little of the Civil War. Johnís pension papers are included in these works.

 

 

 

 

The Coonfield family came from Holland to Pennsylvania and settled in Kentucky by 1800.

Cochran came from Scotland to Pennsylvania and settled in Ohio.

Most of these are later found in Arkansas and Kansas. John Wright Little told his family that they were of Cherokee blood, claiming to be white. He is buried on some unknown mountain in Marble, Arkansas.

(George Little) I. Biographic sketch from History of Daviess Co., Ky.-1883-

pages 129-130-131-132

Short and simple are the annals of the pioneer, to the unsteady hand of

tradition we owe most of that which yet remains of all that was said and done,

achieved and suffered by those who came to Kentucky as the red man departed.

Their very names are being blotted out from the memories and records of men.

Deserving a better fate than this the name of George Little is here set down.

He was born in Scotland about the year 1733. The particular locality of his

birth is now a matter of conjuncture. The patronymic has long been known in

different parts of that country. The station in life of this particular stock

in the old country as well as its history, are both unknown. As tradition

eagerly transmits the faintest suspicion of exalted rank, as it has done so in

this case, the presumption is against it's existence. All hopes of ancestral

connection Morman plunderers are thus forever blighted. For this deprivation

Scotia's own bard had furnished the consoling couplet-- Rank is but the

guinea's stamp: A ma's a man for a ' that.

This unpedigreed lot is indeed to be preferred, even if it were possible to

trace a linage to that ancient and noble house, enterdation all modern nobility-

- founded by the worthy baron alluded to in Charles Dicken's History of Martin

Chuzzlewit, as the Lord Nozoo. In early manhood he emigrated from the old to

the new world. His first known residence in America was at Newberry, in the

colony of South Carolina. His pursuit were agricultural and he was so engaged

at the rupture between the colonies and the mother country. What his previous

sentiments, politically, had been is Unkown but he was opposed to war that

ensued. Without fortune or political influence, he asked. nor more of Govement

them liberty to pursue, unmolested, his private affairs. Possibly his

attachment to the mother country, or kindred left behind, influenced his

opinions. A did Senter from the established church, he early joined the

Wesleyan movement, which before the Revolution had a con considerable

membership the side of the Atlantic. His religious faith-- embracing the

doctrine of House this may be, when war came and the colonial Government

required his services, he enlisted in the American Army, Nor record of the

nature and duration of his Service survived. Nothing more is certainly known

than that in an engagement between the American Forces and a detachment of the

enemy under Tarleton's command he received a bullet wound in the hip, as the

result of this he went to his grave a cripple. The ball was never extracted.

Independence and peace finally came and great rejoicing at the result. But the

sturdy Scot still persisted that rebellion was a mistake and died nearly forty

years after with his opinion unchanged. He remained in South Carolina until the

end of the century. He had married before the Revolution and his children were

born before or during that war. Sometime after the how long can not be stated--

his wife died. His children, five daughters and five sons, reached womanhood

and manhood, married and sought homes of their own. His own home was thus

broken up. age and infirmity of the Revolutionary war, the exploits of Daniel

Boone in the forest beyond the mountains were borne by rumors from his old home

on the Yadkin to the fertile! Watered by a river that rivaled the charms of

this shores by its own grace and majesty. To the young and adventurous this

prospect was irresistible! To all it was inviting. Jonas and John Little, two

of his sons, decided to try their fortune in this new utopia, with their

families they turned their backs on civilization and their old home in S. C.

and started on their journey.

Their father accompanied them. Their first halting place was in Barron Co.,

Ky. Here they settled in 1800 or 1802. John Little, becoming dissatisfied,

removed Tenn., where he resided until old age. He went thence to Texas and

shortly after, died. George Little and his son Jonas, remained in Barren County

for two years. They then removed to and settled a few miles north of the Long

Falls of Green River in what was then Ohio County. The town of Vienna (now

Calhoun) at that point on the river had maintained its fortune from its

establishment in 1784. It succeeded a fort or block house erected there some

years before.

George Little engaged in farming such as supplied the wants of that primitive

day. He had never acquired any considerable means, and was dependent on his own

exertions when the time for toll had about passed for him. The Ohio County

Court exempted him from poll tax " on account of bodily infirmly! But not

probably intended in part a patriotic recognition of his sufferings for his

chosen country. These last years were comparatively un-uneventful in local

affairs in this region. Society was primitive, business limited, and mostly in

the farming way.

The muster day and the religious meetings were about the only occasions when

people assembled together. The pioneer necessarily lived alone- - - - exempt

from public haunts.

Finding tongues in trees, books in running brooks, Sermons in stones, and good

in everything.

The war hoop of the Indian had scarcely ceased to echo around the settlers'

cabin. Indeed, the Ohio River bonded the Indian country on the south, which

reached the Great Lakes on the North and stretched from the Muckerman to the

boundless west. Bear hunting was still good, deer abundant, and the wolf and

panther still lingered.

Many years after the death of his first wife he intermarried with Mary

(Handley) Douglas, widow of Alexander Douglas. She was a native of Scotland

(she hired an estate there) whence she came in childhood. In early life she

married Douglas of Pa. They had several daughters, one of them (Betty) married

Jonas Little.

In 1784 or '5 Douglas came to Ky., with his brother-in-law, Capt. John

Handley, a surveyor, to examine the country, survey and lo sate lands with a

view of ultimate settlement. They separated to go to their respective homes.

Douglas never returned and was presumably murdered by Indians. His death is

still a mystery. George Little died in 1815. In 1824, his widow married Edward

Atterbury of Daviess Co., She survived her third husband several years.

Outliving most of her generation. From youth to old age she was noted for her

beauty, the grace of her manners, and rare charm of her colloquial powers. Mary

Handley Douglas Little Atterbury was buried beside her second husband in

Anthony Thompson's graveyard. He was her sister, Rachel's husband and the first

Justice of the Peace in all this region.

On the 1st of February 1815, (Daviess County was established that year.)

George Little made his will. He left the bulk of his small estate to his wife.

Shortly after- - having reached fourscore- - he departed this life. or, mighty

God that first gave it and resigned his body to the earth "believing that at

the general resurrection" he would receive it again. His mortal remains were

interred in the Anthony Thompson graveyard where his dust awaits the final

summons.

Civil War Pension of

John Wright Little born 12/4/1843 Shepherdsville, Bullitt, Kentucky was the son

of Doctor Hiram Lucius Little and Nancy Catherine Wright.

John Wright Little was married to Mary Catherine Crigler, daughter of Abraham

Crigler and Mary Catherine Roby. John's daughter Lattie Cedonia Little Coonfield is my great grandmother. Lattie married Benjamin Coonfield and they had my grandma Luella Coonfield Cochran. Dad talked of her having dark brown eyes and long black hair that she could sit on.

 

 

It is told that John's wife died in Kentucky and he moved on to Arkansas, and is buried somewhere on a mountain top in Marble, Arkansas. He told his children they were native americans and needed to move, and be white if they wanted good jobs and land. His daughter Lattie said she was halfblood Cherokee.

 

 

Doctor Hiram Lucius Little was born in Kentucky, son of Jonas Little and Betsy

Douglass on Feb 8, 1821. He was the grandson of Rev War Patriot Captain George

Little and Mary of Scotland. Hiram married Nancy Catherine Wright in 1840

* Other son of Jonas was Douglas Little who married Martha Ann Wright, another daughter of John and Catherine Wright. In fact on the 1850 and 1860 census, Martha's parents are living in her house. One son of Douglas and Martha Little was called Powhatan who wrote much about their ancestry and named most of his children accordingly. Powhatan's daughter, Laura, was researching Cleopatra, another child of the famous Indian Chief Powhatan and our native american blood.

*Other daughter of Lattie Little Coonfield was Amy Marie, who married Joseph Gray and their child, Dorlene, was researching the indian blood in the Little family. Family lore is that the Coonfields were also indian blood.

Captain George Little of Scotland and Mary of Scotland had a son named Jonas. Jonas Little married his step sister Betsy Douglas, daughter of Alexander and Mary Douglas. George married Mary Douglas after both had become widowed.

Jonas and Betsy had a son named Hiram Lucius Little and another named Douglas Little. Hiram and Douglas both married Wright sisters; Hiram to Catherine and Douglas to Martha, daughters of Catherine G Weatherford and John C Wright of Charlotte VA. The Littles and Wrights had both moved into Bullitt Kentucky and all suspected of having Indian Blood according to the stories passed on plus some letters written by other Little family members. Douglas and Martha Little had a son named Lucius Powhatan Little and he was researching Chief Powhatan of VA. Hiram and Catherine had John Wright Little and he told his children that he was Indian. John's daughter Lattie Cedonia Little Coonfield said that she was Cherokee. Lattie's daughter Luella Coonfield Cochran said that she was one quarter Cherokee and mixed with another tribe. Luella's son Frankie Lavern Cochran also married an indian, Anne Carter.

My webpages includes copies of letters and census images to help us with this continued research. However, let's keep in mind the many others included in our genealogy, like Catherine Crigler, Reason Roby, Kitty Simmons, Lydia Carpenter who explored this new country among the indians who taught them how to survive.

John Little above and his daughter Lattie below

Researching the Wright sisters who married the Little brothers, we find their parents in Charlotte, Virginia = John C Wright marrying Catherine G Weatherford ( daughter of Charles ) in 1811 with Benoni Smith giving bond:

John C Wright married Catherine G Weatherford, January 05, 1811, Charlotte, Virginia -

Catherine was daughter of Charles Weatherford

John was son of Thomas and Esther Wright

Charlotte Co., Va. Marriage Record

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One can only wonder if Benoni Smith was an Uncle or grandfather or other family

member to Kitty Weatherford, to give surety to her marriage to John C Wright.

Perhaps the unknown mother of Kitty was a Polly Jones of the Thomas Jones families of Bermuda Hundred in Henrico VA and have some connection to a Smith or a Vaughn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We can only wonder when reading the census image below what happened for Martha Ann Wright Little to take in the children of her two sisters and her mother is also living with them.

Martha even raised John Wright Little who said that he was Cherokee Indian according to his daughter Lattie Cedonia Little and her daughter Luella said that she was one quarter Cherokee mixed with another tribe. Luella Coonfield married Frank Delbert Cochran.

Martha named her first son Powhatan and she was a native of Charlotte Virginia.

Other family members have suspected Indian Blood in the Wright family, but also in the Little family. The photo of John Wright Little's wife is awesome, Mary Catherine Crigler.

More on our Roots

 

Catherine G Weatherford, daughter of Charles, married John C Wright in Charlotte, Virginia on January 5, 1811.

Benoni Smith was sur to m them.

Benoni Smith was married to a Vaughan.

The connection with Smith, Vaughn, Weatherford, Wright is unknown. The search for the correct CHARLES WEATHERFORD continues. There were many Weatherfords in Charlotte, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg areas and many could have named their son Charles, as we also find several Catherines.

Family suspects the father of Chief Red Eagle, was also our Charles Weatherford before he made the trip to Alabama from Virginia.

***Parents of John C Wright are Thomas and Esther which we are now tracing.

=======================================


Isaac Benjamin Coonfield born 1780 Pennsylvania married Barsheba Clark in Kentucky and they are found on the 1800 tax list.

IF ISAAC COONFIELD WAS BORN ABOUT 1780 PENNSYLVANIA

HE WAS IN KENTUCKY FOR THE 1800 TAX LIST AND

THE 1810 CENSUS

Moses B. Coonfield in Pennsylvania might have been his brother. Gideon and Oliver Confield were in New York about that time. Yet Isaac never used these names when his sons were born, unless Moses B was a Benjamin. Isaac's father might be Robert J. Confeld so he could be Robert James. It is speculated that Christopher Confeldt is Isaac's grandfather from Holland but we never see that name used in his descendents, yet we do not know what his middle name might have been. It is possible that Christopher had several sons and these names are all related - the old census records do not show their ages, so again it is possible some of these names are sons of Robert.

One Cochran ended up in Alabama and stirred up this genealogy:

Carter Webpages Listed below

http://www.hometown.aol.com/carterancestry/page41.html

 

Entrance to Cochran pages are here where the Coonfield and Cochran marriage began in Arkansas. Jacob Benjamin Cochran came from Scotland to Pennsylvania to Ohio to Iowa to Kansas and the Coonfield came from Holland to Pennsylvania to Kentucky to Arkansas.

 

John Wright Little left Kentucky and settled in Arkansas where his daughter married Benjamin Wallace Coonfield.

 

This author still wants to learn about the 1790 census showing all those Little families living so close together, seeming like brothers. George, Jonas, John, Joseph, William, Thomas + our George named his sons by those same names.

Obviously there is a connection and perhaps they all came from Scotland

Together.

The census images are endless as we continue to follow their trail through time.

 

Hi dear cousin Wonda and Aunt Berneice and my wonderful family!

I've been writing down all of our thoughts and family stories passed down, scanning old and new photographs, collecting census images back to 1790 and putting them on webpages to preserve them all. I have also been printing them and saving a large notebook for the children to browse through someday, if they do get curious about their family heritage. Of course it is really not very organized because I might find something new on the Cochrans, then suddenly find something new on my mother's lineage or my husband's, like just yesterday I received a new package of photos of his great grandparents from a cousin on the internet and was so excited !

Mother's Cherokee blood relatives came through Georgia long before the Trail of Tears but not very much is documented from it, just the family lore.

Nice knowing that our granny Luella Cochran told her children that they were Cherokee.

When I read over the old letters from Laura Little, that her daughter Martha, sent me, I do feel that she was trying to connect her family to another daughter of Chief Powhatan thru his daughter, Cleopatra, and of course the chief probably had hundreds of children that have never been researched - but because Lucius Powhatan Little told her to work on it - surely she had a reason.

Lucius also wrote many letters researching cousins in the Carolinas and I think back to where I discovered a Jonas, John and Joseph Little in the Revolutionary War living close to Captain George Little, so I suspect his whole family came over from Scotland, because he named his sons the same. Some of the other Littles were here in Alabama and one even attended my mother's Grandpa McClain 's funeral.

USgenweb.com had an interesting page about the many Kentucky tribes existing during the time our dark skinned Scottish Little families were there, so they all blended very well and claimed to be white, so the government would leave them alone and not force them into Oklahoma.

Anyway, I am trying to save all of this information on a CD for your computer and perhaps someone would someday finish up our research and appreciate the years of hard work we have all put into it. Thank you all so very much for your contributions!

Love and hugs,

Kathy Cochran

Cochran Genealogy

This author has certainly plastered her lineage across cyber space in order to reach out to other cousins researching the same ancestors. Strictly

An amateur attempt at genealogy as well as webpage creation, at least the true documents are located and posted for future reference as well as

Posting more facts than fiction, as many seem to post legend, lore and speculation. However, some of that family legend carries a bit of truth, so never discard it completely.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my visits with family and meeting new relatives on the internet, especially those who knew my parents as children and have so much to share J Few of my motherís kin still exist but my fatherís lineage is so extensive, but then I think that perhaps others who know of my motherís lineage may contact me yet, once they see the mess I have created on the internet.

One day I picked up the phone book and started calling around, some may have thought I was off my rocker just a bit, but I did locate one lovely lady named Nancy in my motherís lineage, who had spent many years researching our great grandfathers from Alabama, into Georgia and up the coast, so it turned into a fantastic conversation, as I learned that I was on the right track with this research. I do wish that mother had known this wonderful person.

Navigation

Yes indeed it is a mess but I promise this will get better and thus far it has not been too complicated, as many servers have their own little format to make free webpages and never seem to vanish, so Iíve been quite fortunate that my work continues to linger in cyber space ! Most of this is old photos uploaded to share but also to preserve. I have been printing them out as I go along, and creating a huge notebook for my children to browse.

A huge piece of the puzzle is figuring out the names of women; those unknown grannies can drive us up the wall ! However a few of them are now known, some I found on census records, so this stuff is finally making some sense and even though it is a mess, it is all here !

TRACKING OUR ROOTS and Sharing My Notes and Links and Photos

Charlie Brooks married Kathy Cochran in 1972

Cochran born of Carter and Cochran marriage

Frankie Cochran married Annie Lee Alice Carter in 1951; his parents were Luella Ellen Coonfield and Frank Delbert Cochran of Chetopa KS. Anne's parents were Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Carter who had three children.

Charlie Brooks born of Brooks and Thornton marriage -

James Edgar Brooks Jr married Mary Ella Thornton

Carter was adopted but was born to Fenn and Stone marriage

Grandpa Cecil Carter married Emma Alice McClain; His parents were Anna Lou Stone and William Franklin Fenn of Macon AL and I was so excited to order Grandpa Fenns death certificate to learn more about his parentage and that he was born in Tuskegee. which was Creek Indian Territory.

Cecil's brother was Wm Frank Fenn Jr of Coosada who's land was sold to build a new school by Frank's son, Bob Fenn. Bob was once the principal at Robinson Springs School who was previously married to a Martha Cobb. Bob's sister was recently found living in Millbrook Alabama and I had a wonderful visit with her. The Fenns all had a beautiful dark complexion and dark brown eyes. Grandpa Cecil was described on his military discharge as a tall, dark ruddy complected man with dark brown eyes. Bob says that his fathers home in Coosada caught fire once and most photos and documents burned. I do remember my parents visiting Uncle Frank in Coosada. Uncle Frank's brother, Emmett Marvin Fenn, had left something to my mom when he died.

Grandpa Frank Delbert Cochran was born to Miller and Cochran marriage

Grandpa Frank D Cochran married Luella Ellen Coonfield; his parents were Clora Jane Miller and Jacob Benjamin Cochran. The Coonfield sisters all had long black braided hair and dark brown eyes, just like Clora and these women smoke corn cob pipes~~ Other researchers write that Clora's mother, Mary Clara Parker Miller was a medicine woman among the indians.

Great Grandpa William Frank Fenn married Anna Lou Stone in 1893, divorced about 1900 and both remarried. His parents were Emiline Harrell and John Fenn of Georgia who moved into Tuskegee. Her parents were Mary Ann Hendrick and Augustus M Stone. - Augustus was born in Alabama to Sarah Davis and Benjamin Wilburn Stone = Benjamin's father was Michael Stone from Maryland who had married a Polly Wells in Putnam Georgia. It is unknown if he was related to Catherine Stone in the Brooks/Ballard ancestry.

Great Grandpa Charles Allen McClain married Emma Lorena Bozeman in 1908 His parents were Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain. Her parents were Alice Lorena Stephens and John Thomas Bozeman. Charles was a small man, a farmer who cleaned the church and also made caskets as the epidemics took so many.

PHOTO of our grandpa Bozeman. who descends from Peter's son William Henry

Great Grandpa Jacob Benjamin Cochran and his second wife Clora Jane Miller came from Iowa to Kansas about 1890 and had Frank Delbert Cochran. On the 1880 census we see that Jacob has a ten year old grandson named Frank but he only had six daughters at the time so this is a big mystery and we have no clue what happened to that Frank.

Great Grandpa Benjamin Wallace Coonfield married Lattie Cedonia Little in 1891; his parents were Martha Frances Young and Benjamin Wylie Coonfield. Her parents were Mary Catherine Crigler and John Wright Little. The Littles and Coonfields were once in Kentucky and migrated into Arkansas. John's father, Hiram Little, moved to Bosque Texas and remarried and had a new family. John Little said that he was Cherokee and his beautiful black haired daughter, Lattie Cedonia Little told her children that she was Cherokee. Fortunately I have met many new cousins on the internet researching this line ! They say the Coonfields were all very dark complected, with black hair that had a blue/green shine.

Kentucky `1850 census shows the Criglers as free persons of color?? they were not white and not black eh? Our photo of grandma Crigler indicates she could have been an Indian.

John Wright Little's mother was Nancy Catherine Wright who married Hiram Lucius Little. Catherine's parents were Catherine Georgia Weatherford and John C Wright who were married in 1811 Charlotte VA. Catherine Weatherford's father was Charles Weatherford but not at her wedding so was he in Alabama at that time?

Daddy's aunt writes that John Little's son, or Uncle Bill, looked just like an indian man who visited often on his horse. She also writes that John's daughter, Lattie Cedonia Little Coonfield, cooked the best skunk meat in town.

Great Great Grandpa John Fenn/Fann married Emeline Harrell in GA and had our William Frank Fenn in Tuskegee Alabama in 1855

Great Great Grandpa Dempsey Harrell stayed in Georgia?

Great Great Grandpa Josiah Marion McClain left his first wife in GA and came to Alabama in the Civil War and married Elizabeth Broadway in Ramer Alabama and had our Charles Allen McClain. "Bettie Broadway's" family came from South Carolina.

Great Great Grandpa John Thomas Bozeman married Alice Lorena Stephens in Ramer Alabama and had our Lorena Emma Bozeman. John's parents were Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman, son of William Henry and to William's father Peter Boseman who was married to Sarah Brown. I have also found that Sarah came to Alabama with Peter, where many speculate that she died in SC.

Cochran, Jacob, said his ancestors came from Scotland and he was born in Ohio while his father was born in PA.

Millers came from Ireland, where Reverend Alexander Miller is found in Rockingham Virginia and Charles Weatherford is found in Charlotte VA in the 1810 census just one year before his daughter married John C Wright. Near Charles Weatherford is Patsy Weatherford with children and she could be the Polly Jones Weatherford that we have been looking for. The Weatherfords had a lot of Indian Roots.

Several other family names were in Pennsylvania Quaker areas, New York Indian Country, Rhode Island and Massachusetts and they all ended up in Ohio

and Kentucky around 1800. They began to move west and some served in the wars and some searched for gold. Jacob had gone to California in 1849 with five brothers but he only returned with socks full of gold dust. Jacob Cochran apparently became an apple farmer in Kansas and he was the first homesteader there in Hill City. However, Jacob and his first wife Mariah White and six daughters first moved to Iowa, where Mariah is buried and where he met Clora Jane Miller.

Charles McClain married Elizabeth Moon in VA and they moved into the Carolinas and we find them on the Spartanburg SC census. Their son Josiah was born there and he married Nancy Wood and had James W McClain. James married an Anna and had a son called Josiah Marion McClain.

John Fann of England married Mary Stone in VA and their children moved south as some were Indian Traders. It is unknown if Mary Stone is related to Michael Stone above or to the Thomas Stone who signed the Constitution but this is what makes our genealogy even more exciting.

The Bozemans/ Bosmans are found in the 1600s Maryland and VA where they got together with the Stephens, Andersons, Brack, Sellers and even a Doty which connects us to the Mayflower. There are many stories writen about our Edward Doty who attended the first Thanksgiving.

John Stephens came from Florida to the Carolinas to fight in the Rev War

and married A full blood Cherokee, before coming to Alabama. Some researchers suspect he was Johann Stephans of Germany but we will never know.

Captain George Little of Scotland was in the American Revolution in South Carolina and went to Kentucky about 1800 with his second wife. His son Jonas married Betsy Douglass, his step sister, and had Hiram Lucius Little and another son Douglas Little. Hiram and Douglas both married granddaughters of Charles Weatherford.

Samantha's Ancestry

James E Brooks was born to Brooks and Ballard marriage

James Edgar Brooks married Susie Mae Cooper and then their son James Jr married Mary Ella Thornton.

Mary Ella Thornton was born to Thornton and Hood marriage

Milton Elijah Thornton married Bessie Mae Hood

John Brooks, a tailor by trade, married Roxanna Permilia Smith in Tennessee about 1860; John came from Pennsylvania and his father was from Holland and his mother was from France. John's son, John, married Annie Clark Ballard in Tennessee and they moved into Alabama and are buried at Greenwood Cemetery.

Cooper, Levi Benjamin married Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Carter in 1884 in Montgomery AL and his family came from Chambers County Alabama. Sarah Cooper is buried by Annie Ballard as they both were widowed and living with James Brooks in the Montgomery census records. And of course we never traced the adoptive father of Cecil Earl Fenn Carter, and do not know if they were relatives of this Sarah Carter.

Thornton and Hood and Cooper headstones

Hood, Bessie Mae's parents were Wesley Hood and Ella Mae O. and they are all buried at Caine's Chapel Cemetery in Holtville, Alabama.

Thomas S Smith married Caroline M Bond in 1840 Maury Co, TN

John Brooke of Holland had John, Christine, Edward and Henry.

James Calvin Ballard married Willie Eudora Florence Craig in 1876 TN

Charner P. Cooper of South Carolina married Sara F. Lee in 1845 Chambers AL and had Levi Benjamin Cooper who married Sarah Elizabeth Carter.

Thomas Randolph Carter married Mary Josephine Hereferd about 1861 and had Sallie Carter. After Mary passed away, Thomas married Lacy Bozeman, daughter of Jesse Bozeman. Now we have no idea how many children Lacy Bozeman had but they would be cousins to our Lorena Bozeman McClain wouldn't they :)

Charner Cooper's mother is only known as Alsey. His father was Andrew Cooper of South Carolina.

Elija Lee of South Carolina married Malinda Phillips about 1830 in Greene County GA and the moved into Chambers County near the Coopers. There are several families listed on the census with these surnames so perhaps many came to Alabama by wagon train and settled there, as the Creek Indians began to give up their lands. Chambers County was once Creek Indian Territory.

John L Hereford married Jemima Ramey about 1818

John Wise Carter came from South Carolina to Talledega Alabama which is named for a Creek Indian Village.

William M Craig married Rebecca Carolina Pennington in 1860 in Tennessee. which is rich with several indian tribe's history.

Larkin Frances Ballard married Rowena Densy Baxter in 1847 TN

James Baxter Jr married Hester Ward of NC in 1829 TN

James Milton Ballard married Kissiah Dickens of NC abt 1820

North Carolina had several indian tribes and still has a Cherokee Indian Reservation that my daughter has visited; it has a wealth of information for genealogists.

William Pennington married Gracey

David C Craig married Catherine Connelly of NC in 1832

These families are all living close together on the census records.

 

 

This author is reminded of a story told about one ancestor who married an indian woman and gave her a Biblical name. History tells us that once the woman was baptised, she was given and English name. Of course if the groom joined her tribe, he could have received an Indian name or the mixed blood children received both, such as Chief Red Eagle who was really named William Weatherford who's family migrated from Virginia to Montgomery Alabama.

Bond

John Baptist Bond married Catherine Kitty Stone of NC in 1819 TN -

Henry Smith of a Virginia John Smith lineage married Sinia Evans in 1819 TN and this lineage deserves much more research. ah another Stone unturned

Within my many unorganized webpages to follow, I have posted the census images and other documents recorded to prove this genealogy. Some relatives I knew personally, shared letters and phone calls with, and I have also been reading many old cards and letters from my family to document names, dates, and locations, but also ordering death certificates to prove even more.

Results of the family tree research shows that we come from many nationalities or origins and we all turned out beautifully :)

Chambers County, AlabamaÖChambers County was created by an act of the Alabama General Assembly on 1832 Dec. 18, from Creek Nation territory. It is located in the east-central portion of the state, and is bounded on the east by the Chattahoochee River. The county is named for Henry Chambers, a U.S. Senator from Alabama (1825-26). The location of the county seat was selected in 1833 and the town of LaFayette was built specifically for that purpose. Authorities: Acts 1831-32, p.9. Owen, Thomas McAdory. History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography. Chicago: S.J. Clarke Publishing Co., 1921. The treaty with the Creeks stipulated that the head of each Indian family was to receive 320 acres of land and the chiefs 640 acres. Most of the Indian land ended up in the hands of white land speculators. Most of the Indians were forced out of Chambers County after the Creek War of 1836-1837. Some of them ended up in Randolph, Macon, Tallapoosa or Talladega counties for a short while, before finally giving up and heading further west. Some of the Indians managed to stay in Alabama by denying their Indian blood, claiming to be Black Dutch or Melungeun.
