Researching one's family tree is a long tedious process and while one can find other family trees posted on the Latter Day Saints page at familysearch.org there really should be more research to feel the facts come to light.  The task has been so rewarding that I started researching my late husband's lineage  and lo and behold, many of his ancestors were settled by mine, and some intermarried, yet the two of us never had any direct connection, in our blood line. In fact, my Brooks in law once lived on Hull Street not far from my mother's Fenn grandparents who also  lived on Hull Street. Fenn's sons worked at the railroad with the Brooks.  Mrs. Brooks even rented a room to Mrs. Fenn for a while as she had been into an argument with grandpa Fenn.  That Mrs. Fenn was his second wife and not my granny.
 
In fact, my granny Fenn ( Anna Stone ) spent less  than ten years with him, having six children, she was about to leave them all in Alabama and get a divorce, when he handed her the baby Cecil that I am researching.  From that point I cannot find her on a census or anything.  But my moms' cousin Martha Fenn remembers her family going to grandma's funeral by train.
 
Census images add so much extra to a story.  I enjoy reading the census images to add truth and fact to my family tree.

Currently I am collaborating all of our research on the freepages at rootsweb.com and if you have not searched there, you really should check our their family trees :)    My website there is
  
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~kc90853/

I have been visiting local cemeteries taking pictures of headstones of relatives that even my parents did not know about.  Plus at findagrave.com there are volunteers nearly everywhere, who you can contact for pictures of headstones in other states and my collection is growing and it also proves the location, names, and dates of my family.

All states are adding historial information, Bible records, cemetery records, etc at USgenweb.com, just click on the state and start reading.  That is where I located important information dated 1811 for my father's line and it is all free.  Another good page to read is www.accessgenealogy.com and it is also free !  I read about several Indian Chiefs there and found several of my outlaw cousins in my family tree intermarried with those lines.

Digging through old boxes of cards and letters, I found a hospital receipt for $9.00 where I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was able to trace the residence of my parents in 1953 to Mingo Road in
the town of Broken Arrow  :)

On the internet I have been in contact with dozens of relatives and send my love to my dad's sisters for their many packages of notes and documents that they have worked on over the years.

Some of my mother's cousins are also emailing new information for the Bozeman family tree, and recently my husband's lineage has help through email.

We all share pictures, letters and documents hoping to build a family record with facts instead of speculation.  Most of it I post on a webpage for preservation and the weblinks are within this maize of links, so please be patient if you browse and feel free to email me if you like  :)

    http://www.hometown.aol.com/kathyinbama/FrankCochranFamilyFaces.html



     
    Elijah Lee and Andrew Cooper of South Carolina born 1770s brought their families to Chambers County Alabama, former Creek Indian Lands, before 1840.  It has been said that Elijah paid an indian directly for his land.  Elijah had married Malinda Phillips of Green County Georgia and some believe the Phillips were of indian blood.  Andrew Cooper may have also married an indian woman named Alsey and her last name had never been discovered.  On the 1840 census Alsey appears to be widowed with children. 1840 shows Elijah Lee living near a John Phillips. The Alabama Land Records show that Elijah bought land in 1823 so it was long before the Trail of Tears. ( note )
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~alchambe/grpsht.html

    The Lees are buried at the Old Harmony Baptist Church cemetery and the graves of the Coopers are not yet found. Aunt Sissy says that grandpa Levi Cooper is buried by his sons at a church cemetery in Cecil, Alabama.  They had resided in Whitehall according to Aunt Sissy.  She and her son Butch have been a great help!
    Descendant Susie Mae Cooper Brooks is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Montgomery Alabama.  Her descendant Charlie Brooks is buried at Brookside Memorial in Millbrook, Alabama.
    *
    Charner P Cooper, son of Andrew, married Sarah F Lee, daughter of Elijah, and their son Levi Benjamin Cooper married Sarah Elizabeth Carter, a daughter of Thomas Randolph Carter and Mary Josephine Hereford of Virginia. Mary had a beautiful complexion, black eyes and black hair. The grave of TRC born 1820 was found in Hope Hull, Montgomery, Alabama by his first wife, Lacy Jane Bozeman and I really appreciate my daughter driving us through that cow pasture to find that little cemetery hidden behind the pond, and it really deserves a historical marker.
    *
    The Bozemans came from South Carolina and NC 1700s moving into Alabama as some of the Indian Tribes moved west in the early 1800s.  Lacy's father Jesse's headstone shows that he was born 1793.  Apparently Jesse had been married twice . Many legal documents exist in Montgomery County regarding the Bozeman families.

    Jesse Bozeman was the brother of William Henry Bozeman and administrator of his Estate.  Their father was Peter Bozeman of Darlington South Carolina who served in the American Revolution along with his own father, Mordecai Bozeman.  Peter and his wife Sarah, had moved their families into Alabama about 1820 and they are probably buried in Hope Hull, Montgomery County, Alabama. Several Bozemans were buying land in Alabama in the 1820s and 1830s.
    Just  imagine the many wagon trains flowing in..

    William Henry named his sons, Meady, Peter Edward, and John Thomas Bozeman.  John's descendant, Jimmy Ray has assisted with this research.  Meady's descendant Wayne and his wife Sue Carol have also assisted.  Wayne and Jimmy have had many years of genealogy work before me and were so kind and proud to share with a new cousin.
    *Thomas Carter was the son of  John Wise Carter who some say was buried in Talladega Alabama.  John was born 1792 South Carolina, the son of Elizabeth Wise and Captain John Carter who may have served in the War of 1812 and the American Revolution. John bought land in Alabama in 1821.
    *
    Susie Mae Cooper's husband was James Edgar Brooks Sr and their son was James Jr.  The parents of James came from Tennessee with the railroad and they resided downtown Montgomery Alabama near the Union Station.  They were Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks, all buried at Greenwood.  John's father was also named John, born in Pennsylvania to Dutch parents.  He was found in the 1860 census of Giles TN, the same year he met and married Roxanna Permilia Smith.note  Our cousin Clarence and his mother Sissy have assisted with this research and contributed to the Montgomery Cemetery research with his survey of Carter-Stokes cemetery in Hope Hull, which should be appropriately named Carter and Bozeman Cemetery.
    The Smith families connect to a Captain John Smith of Virginia.
    *
    The Ballards were previously in the Carolinas, as were the Bond, and Ward families.
    *
    James Edgar Brooks Jr married Mary Ella Thornton and had a son named Charles in Montgomery Alabama.   He also worked a while with the railroad while living on Hull Street near my grandpa Fenn but the Brooks soon moved to Millbrook and had a huge garden and seven boys and one daughter.  Mr Brooks became an exterminator for a few years before he joined the John Deere dealership.  They are buried in Prattville by their son Johnny.
    *
    Mary Ella's parents were Bessie Mae Hood and Milton Elijah Thornton and they are buried in Slapout/ Holtville,  in Elmore County AL at the Cain's Chapel Cemetery near many other family members.
    *
    headstones and census records
    *
    Elijah's parents came from Georgia,  Mary Angeline Partridge and George Thornton; we found their graves behind an old primitive Baptist Church in Central, Elmore, AL on the way to the Lake.Mary Ella's sister, Lorraine said that Mary Angeline was an indian and my daughter took me to the Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Central to locate those headstones.
    *
    Bessie's parents were Ella Olivia Baxley and Allen Wesley Hood but his headstone has an L W on it.  His parents are hard to trace and prove.  Hers were James and Marnda Baxley of Cold Spring, Elmore, AL and thus begins the brick wall in our research.
    *
    Charles Brooks married Kathy Cochran, daughter of Anne Carter and Frankie Cochran.
    *Anne Carter was the daughter of Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter.
    *
    Frankie Cochran was born in Kansas a son of Luella Coonfield of Arkansas and Frank Delbert Cochran.
    *
    Alice McClain's parents were Lorena Emma Bozeman and Charles Allen McClain of Ramer, Montgomery County, Alabama.  The parents of Charles were Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain ( Civil War Soldier of GA).  Josiah's ancestors were Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of Virginia 1700s.  Josiah's father James was found in Alabama on the 1860 census and had possibly married an indian named Anna.  The Broadways came out of South Carolina and Elizabeth's father Abner had married Mary Susan Stephens of Alabama.

    Lorena's parents were Alice Stephens and John Thomas Bozeman.  Alice Stephen's great great grandfather John Stephens had married a full blood Cherokee in North Carolina and began a journey to Alabama where many of his grandchildren settled in Ramer.

    Parents of John Bozeman were Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman. Peter was the son of William Henry Bozeman.  Our Bozeman family says that Peter Edward is buried behind the Hills Chapel Church in the woods where there was once a cemetery many years ago.

    Nancy's parents were Lavinia Jane Sellers and Seaborn Anderson. Lavinia's sister married a Cooper.  Seaborn Anderson's ancestors and his father Elijah had settled in Lowndes County before moving to Montgomery, Alabama.  Elijah's parents were Lavinia Brack and Elisha Anderson who's Will is located at the Montgomery County Archives. This line connects to the Mayflower's Edward Doty.as Lavinia Brack's mother was Hester Doty, a daughter of Benajah Doty and Elizabeth Farr.
    *
    Cecil's parents were Anne Lou Stone and William Frank Fenn of Bullock County Alabama. Tracing back to Michael Stone of Maryland and William Stone of Virginia. Some of the Fanns were Indian Traders into Georgia before settling in Alabama.
    *
    Luella Coonfield's parents were married in Arkansas, Lattie Cedonia Little of KY and Benjamin Wallace Coonfield of ARK
    *
    Frank Delbert's parents were Clora Jane Miller of Iowa and Jacob Benjamin Cochran of Ohio who settled in Kansas.  Jacob had six daughters by his first wife, Mariah, who would also be related. 1880 census shows he had  a grandson named Frank by one of those girls.   MORE
    The Cochran and Coonfield lineage of the midwest.  Alexander Cochran raised his family in Pennsylvania and soon settled into Ohio, possibly Quakers, with several sons joining the Civil War and even living in California during the Gold Rush.  Later these young men moved to Iowa to farm the new land, and after several years, Jacob Benjamin Cochran moved to Kansas with second wife Clora Jane Miller, a daughter of Mary Clara Parker.  Family lore is that Mary shared medicine with the indians and research shows that her ancestors were in the 1600s and 1700s New York Indian Country as well as Mass  and Rhode Island, with one cousin, Joshua Tefft was killed by King Phillip.  One Mr Sweete was banned from England as a Catholic Priest and lived in exile in France.

    As far as documenting the Cochran lineage, I have none beyond Jacob to prove the names of his parents or grandparents.  Locating a census record or a will or more would help  to prove this lineage.  Perhaps Jacob told his children about his parents but reading the census records, I can safely say there were dozens of Williams, Alexanders, and Jacob Cochrans in Pennsylvania and Ohio and even those who migrated to Iowa Territory. Apparently William Cochran married Martha Henderson in Ohio and had Jacob.

    Fortunately for many other lineages, those before us have done a lot of research that I can go back and verify for myself leaving reason to believe most of what I can see.

    Isaac and Barsheba Clark Coonfield spent many years in early Kentucky and then moved to Indiana with their grown children. She was found widowed on the 1830 census. Her son Isaac Benjamin Coonfield moved his family to Arkansas. This family is mentioned in the book of the Early History of Morgan County Indiana.  Benjamin Wallace Coonfield married Lattie Cedonia Little and they had Amy, Ruth and Luella Coonfield.  Amy married Joe Gray and I had corresponded with their daughter Verna, who forwarded copies of her late sister's research ( Dorline Gray ) who was trying to connect this lineage to Chief Powhatan.

     Dorline had also been corresponding with our cousin Martha in Arizona, who also shared a great amount of research with me regarding L P Little.  L P Little had a great way of leaving a trail of his elders by giving each child a middle name of one of his ancestors and I am honoring him and his work by writing about him on the Kentucky webpage.

    Arkansas land records indicate that Isaac Coonfield bought land in 1856.

    Hiram Lucius Little, son of Betsy Douglas and Jonas Little, had lost his wife, Catherine Wright, in Kentucky and moved to Texas.  His son John Little served in the Civil War as a blacksmith, married, had several children, lost his wife and then moved his family into Arkansas.  Our grandma Betsy was found widowed and living with her daughter Betsy Roberts on the 1850 census.

    Hiram Little married Rebecca Isabella Adams in Bosque County Texas and had more children including a Hiram jr.  Most are buried at the Meridian Cemetery. Hiram's headstone refers to him as a doctor and a mason.

    Apparently some of the brothers of grandpa Jonas had already removed to Texas by 1800 and our Hiram had joined them.  Our Texas migration needs further study.

    Betsy Douglass Little had another son named Douglass Little who married Martha Ann Wright, his sister in law. Martha named her first son, Powhatan and he was a lawyer, and a judge, who was a great writer and did a lot of research on his lineage;  as did his daughter, Laura Simmons Little.  They traced Mary Handley to parents Martha Mason and George Handley of Ireland, noting that Mary was born asea, on the trip over. Mary's brother was Captain John Handley.  Their notes also chart a Thomas Jones settling in the 1600s on James River in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, Virginia and wrote about a Polly Jones who may have been the wife or companion of Charles Weatherford.

    Mother of the Wright sisters was Catherine Weatherford, a daughter of Charles Weatherford in Charlotte VA.  Alabama land records indicate land sold to Charles in 1841 if this is his grandson by Red Eagle. So far records only indicate one Charles Weatherford born in this time period and it is quite possible that he had more than one wife than history would like for us to believe and if he was indian trader, he probably had many children that have not been noted.  History also indicates that the father of Red Eagle was from Scotland, and a his grandson on the creek indian mailing list says that Charles fathered many children with many women and then went back to Scotland but we may never know the facts.  Some family trees indicate that Charles was the son of Martin Weatherford and an indian woman called Mary in Charlotte Virginia who migrated to Georgia and I did find documentation in the Georgia Archives onlne that show Martin was a wealthy planter and it mentions nothing at all about Scotland.  Martin was a loyalist, very outspoken and the state of Ga banned him so he moved his family to the Bahamas and more documentation is found to prove that.

    Laura  Little joined the DAR and had a monument dedicated to her great grandfather, Captain George Little in Kentucky.  Laura's granddaughter, Martha, in Arizona has assisted with this research. Laura had studied the Weatherfords, Wrights and Chief Powhatan.  Laura had joined the American Genealogical First Families. leaving a fantastic paper trail for her descendants to follow.

    Parents of Betsy were Mary Handley and Alexander Douglass who were married in PA. MMary's brother Captain John Handley became a surveyor like Davy Crockett and on one trip to the new land in Kentucky, before 1800, his brother in law, Alexander Douglass went with him and never returned.  Alexander was murdered by indians on his way back home.  His wife took her girls and moved into a scottish settlement in South Carolina, where her daughter married Jonas little. Later the father of Jonas, George Little, married his son's mother in law.  Both had become widowed but they had no children together that we know of.

     Ironically there was an older Jonas Little in South Carolina, who's descendants moved southward and into Alabama and we can only suspect there may be some connection to George.  The 1790 census of Newberry, Union, South Carolina shows George with a housefull of children but it also shows others around his home named Jonas, Joseph, William and John who could also be his Scottish siblings.  Some of those came through Alabama and Texas but it is hard to configure.


    Hiram Little's son was John Wright Little who married a Mary Catherine Crigler. John lived with her family before the marriage, with her parents Catherine Roby and Abraham Crigler.  

    Abraham's parents were Lydia Carpenter and Owen Crigler.  Catherine's parents were Kitty Simmons and Reason Roby.  These families left Virginia to settle in the new land of Kentucky about 1800 among friendly indians who were also migrating westward.

    John and Mary were beautiful, dark complected, had black eyes and black hair and they had Cherokee blood.

    The Battle of Alamo lists a soldier named Hiram Little and there is a possible connection to our lineage as some of the decendants are found in Texas census records. and one receiving a land grant in Texas.

    Much of my research is being added to usgenweb.com

    Descendant of all of these was Frankie Lavern Cochran born 1927.and Kathy Cochran who was born in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma later moved to Montgomery Alabama after spendng a few years in Arizona.  Frankie had dark hair and blue eyes like his father and his younger pictures resemble his father, but as Frankie aged, he resembled his grandpa Coonfield very much.  Pictures of Catherine Crigler and then those of the Coonfield women show us they all had long dark hair in braids and dark eyes.  Luella Coonfield and her mother in law Clora Jane both smoked pipes.  The pipes are in the possession of cousin Stanley.

    Aunt Irma talked of granny Clora Jane Miller Cochran being a sweet old lady who stayed with them for a while when grandpa Jacob died.  Clora stayed with each of her children, taking turns, as she had no place to go.  She taught them about corn and how to pop it.  She mysteriously read the ashes of her pipe.  Aunt Irma was the child born with a veil over her face.  The doctor removed the veil twice as it seemed to grow back and on the third veil, her mother Luella took it and placed it in the Bible where it still exists to this day.

      Frankie's sisters have assisted with this research.  There are many documents, pictures, census records, letters marriage licenses, death certificates, land records, wills, and our other research  posted on Kathy's webpage at


    www.hometown.aol.com/kc90853/Links.html  

    Annie Carter as a baby being held by her Uncle Walton McClain shows us how very dark the McClain boys were just like their father with black eyes and black hair so it is
    quite possible that the McClain lineage was of indian blood. Annie 's school picture shows that she had long straight black hair and black eyes, even though she had it curled up in this photo of her in 1953 pregnant with Kathy in Tulsa OK.

    Looking at Annie's grandmother, Lorena Bozeman's lineage, I wondered repeatedly about her father's name, John Thomas Bozeman, and how it may have originated.  His great  grandfather Peter married a widow, Sarah Brown and she named her first son Meade so that may have been her maiden name; then a son was named William Henry and that could have been her father's name;  so looking back at the 1790 census of South Carolina, I do find a William Meade and a Thomas Meade  so this may be another clue in our mystery of names.  We know that William Henry Bozeman might have been the first to name a son John Thomas Bozeman and wonder where the name Thomas came into play.

    Digging through  mom's letters and cards, I found an article from the newspaper of 1956 that listed Lorena McClain having surgery at Maxwell AFB hospital and later found that grandpa McClain had served in WWI.  The article also listed Anne Cochran and family were relocating to Mesa Arizona and it listed her cousin James Duncan was going to San Antonio.  These were found in Anne's old blue diaper bag that she used in Mesa AZ and brought back with her to Montgomery Alabama.

    Arizana is a small memory in my mind.  We had a lot of burritos that mom cooked, took pictures in the desert and grand canyon, went swimming in the Verde River, Coonsbluff,  and drove thru well lighted mountain tunnels.  Most of our friends and neighbors were indian or mexican and we spoke a little spanish that I have long since forgotten.  My cousin Frankie Haraughty was a daily playmate since his mom Eunice Cochran lived nearby. We played with strange bugs and creatures of the land and watched the daily irrigation of the fields when our front ditches filled with water every afternoon at 4. Frankie's brother Frances was called Chigger by my dad.  Chigger was the one making home movies of us  back then.


    One of Lorena Bozeman 's distant cousins married a Jordan which is a line leading directly to Pocahontas and some of the Jordans settled in Elmore County.  Lorena's uncle Peter Bozeman married a Dillard and that line also connects to Pocahontas.


    Cousin Elizabeth helped with the Bozeman lineage as her grandmother Ethel was the sister of my great granny Lorena. Ruby Gibson told me that Charles McClain and Jason Gibson were cousins and we connected their mothers as Broadway children of Abner Broadway and I verified through census records. One of the Gibsons had marched in Governor Wallace's inaugural parade.  Ruby also told me that my grandfather Cecil Carter was still in the military when he married my granny Alice McClain but I have not been able to verify.

    We do not know if there were any suvivors benefits for Cecil's children as Lorena Bozeman McClain raised them but do know the McClains left Ramer and lived on Highland Avenue for a while.  Cecil's adoption records have not been found, but his children knew of his Fenn family and I have contacted some of the Fenn relatives.

    Cousin Martha Fenn had only a few blurred pictures of Cecils' siblings and told me where Uncle Frank and Uncle Robert were buried in Coosada, Elmore County, AL.

    Her brother, my cousin Bob Fenn, talked about his family on the farm there is Coosada.

    I found another cousin, Nancy Fenn, in Montgomery, who connects to the Mathew Fenn who owned the plantation in Eufaula.

    Our great grandfather William Frank Fenn had married Anna Lou Stone and his great grandfather Michael Stone came to Alabama from Maryland.  There is a Banister Stone in my McClain / Moon family of South Carolina but I have not made any connection;  then my husband's lineage in Tennessee has a Catherine Stone of the Carolinas who married John Baptist Bond.

    Michael Stone had married Polly Wells in Putnam, Georgia and they are found on a census living in a Captain John Stone's District.  Their son Benjamin  Wilburne Stone married Sarah Davies and had Augustus Marvin Stone.  Augustus married Mary Ann Hendrick, a daughter of Mary Ann Winters and John Hendrick.  The 1850 census of Macon County Alabama shows us Michael living next to son William and son Benjamin with their children's names listed.

    Anna's brother was Arthur Augustus Stone and his son was William Arthur Stone, known as Tige to the St Louis Cardinals of 1923.

    The obituary of grandpa Cecil lists a Walter Stone as a pallbearer.  His death certificate is signed by his brother Emmett Fenn.  Cecil is buried at Memorial Cemetery in Montgomery and Emmett is buried at Greenwood by their father.  Their father's brother Madison is buried by them without a headstone.  Madison was known as Uncle Mat.  Uncle Mat had married  and moved to Texas and never had any children, but came back to Montgomery after his wife died.  Mat's brother Thomas had
    also gone to Texas.

    After taking pictures of their headstones at Greenwood, getting close to the exit I discovered the Bozeman family plot, with Nancy Jane Anderson Bozeman buried by her sons Robert and Meady and their families.

    My husband's great grandparents Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks of Tennessee are also buried at Greenwood by Susie Mae Cooper brooks.   I would love to learn more about those TN families who had migrated from the Carolinas, during a time of indian removal . Indian Wars also caused many friendly indians to move westward..Annie Ballard was a beautiful dark featured lady who only had one child. Mary Josephine Hereford was from Virginina and her family all moved into Alabama and she wa also another beautiful dark featured lady.



    Her grandparents were Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter/ and Luella Ellen Coonfield and Frank Delbert Cochran.

    Anne had two brothers who followed them to Oklahoma and Arizona





    Alice McClain Carter had three children who were mixed indian and died at the age of 19 while her husband Cecil died only four years later;  their children were raised by her McClain parents. Their Uncle Emmitt Fenn stayed in touch with the children and his estate was divided amongst them, which was not much at all, but he loved them.  My Uncle Billy, son of Alice and Cecil, apparently called upon his Uncle Frank Fenn on Airport Road in Coosada on his farm quite often in his teen years if he got into trouble.

    Billy played harmonica, danced, sketched beautiful pictures, told stories and loved women;  he married several but nevre had any children.  Cecil Jr married several times and had many children who were all very dark skinned, with black eyes and black hair.

    Uncle Billy had injuries from a fall in the 1960s at Indianapolis Speedway, something broke that he was standing on and his back was broken.  Then about 1970 he needed  abother surgery on his back and not long after that Kathys car ws stuck in the muck after a bad storm and he helped to push the car out - he was very close to his sister's children.

    Of course my mother Anne Carter Cochran also loved music and dancing and she had the green thumb just like her granny Lorena.  Grandma and Aunt Lillie would stay with us younguns while my parents went to the Spur Square Dance hall near the base.

     A sister of Alice was Katy Bell and she adored those babies and helped her parents raise them and sewed their clothing.  Katy never had any children of her own. Katy and Roscoe Coley had a tiny one bedroom brick home on Maplewood Drive in Montgomery where they raised his grandson Mike Carr.  Katy's sister Mary lived on this street and Frankie Cochran and Annie did as well.


    They had another sister named Jimmie Lee, who got pregnant by a neighbor named Hays, so she named the baby Jimmy Lee Hayes.  Suffering from Toxicemia during the pregnancy, she died giving birth.  Alice had another sister named Mary who had crippling arthritis in her feet but also a bad leg where she fell off a truck as a child and it ran over her.
    Alice had three brothers who all served in the military and none had a surviving son to carry on the name.  Another sister named Lillie Mae McClain Duncan was widowed young with twso sons and she visited the Cochrans about twice a week, they were very close. Lillie lived with her mother Lorena Bozeman McClain where we helped churn butter, garden, and made quilts.

     These children had a mixed Cherokee mother and a mixed Creek father.

    Anne and Frank Cochran sp;ent a few years in Arizona and talked of seeing Wayne Newton in the early 1950s walking around with a parrot on his shoulder.  Little did they know he would become such a celebrity.  Of course when they were in downtown Montgomery they talked about walking down the street and seeing Hank Williams playing guitar on his front p;orch.


    Not much is known about grandpa Cecil Earl Fenn Carter except his military records show us that he served nearly 20 years in the army but we have no clue if the children received any benefits after his death.  The papers also indicate he had a very dark ruddy complexion, which we know he was Indian.  He drank too much alcohol and claimed his grandfather was an indian chief.  Cecil fell dead on Columbus Street. His death certificate revealed the names of his parents and then I found his father's grave, W F Fenn. Frank Fenn had six children with his first wife Anna Lou Stone and none with the second, Eva Dakota.  Anna may have been 25 years old when she divorced him. She remarried in Macon Georgia and probably had more children by Mr Carter who had adopted Cecil.  Cecil's military discharge states that he received travel pay back to his bonafide home in Macon GA.  Cousin Ila Gibson told me that he was still in the army  when he married Alice.

      Alcohol:  I read that indian blood is lacking something that tolerates the alcohol and wreaks havoc with the brain;  indian blood also cannot tolerate wheat products that caues digestive problems or diseases


    Looking back at his story of an indian chief grandfather, I wonder if he meant his adopted family.  Cecil named one son after himself and the second son after his father William Fenn, however the son's middle name of Lawrence must have some special meaning.  There was no Lawrence in the Fenn family nor his mother's Stone family, nor in his wife's McClain family, so it could be possible that the Carter man who raised Cecil, could have been named Lawrence Carter.  Not yet finding relative information in Georgia during this time, I do find a Lawrence Carter, appropriately aged, in Monroe County Alabama, where Chief Red Eagle and many of his relatives once resided, not that this is our man, but it adds a little spice to the indian chief story.

    Cecil's brother Frank Fenn
      
    We could go back to the early years of Georgia where all of his Fenn and Stone families had migrated and likely find them connected to the tribes who once roamed and hunted on the land and possibly find some intermarried in his lineage.  Many are researching the same thing and it was quite common since the native americans were beautiful, spiritual, well skilled people.  Of course the Carters were all throughout the south and my husband's line has already been connected to a Captain John Carter of the Carolinas who settled in Alabama so Cecil's family could even be related, and there were many other famous Carter families settling in the south.
      
    When I traced his mother Anna Stone's lineage, finding her great grandfather Michael Stone came from Maryland on his census information, we might consider the many other Stones in our family tree.  My GGG grandfather Charles McClain married Elizabeth Moon and her sister married a Captain Bannister Stone.  One of my husband's grandfathers John Baptist Bond married a Catherine or Kitty Stone.  Then my father's grandfather Reason Roby married a Milly or Catherine Stone and all of these had some connection to Virginia or to North Carolina.
      
    In fact the Fenn lineage goes back to Virginia where an Englishman, John Fann married a Mary Stone before 1700.

    Then we find Elijah Fann/ Fenn married to Martha Rich in Georgia and her mother known only as Abiah may have been native american.
    Stephen Rich 1
    Born: Between 1760 and 1770 1
    Marriage: Abiah
     
       He was included on the 1806 tax list for Montgomery County (later Emanuel), Georgia.


    On the census taken 1820, Stephen appeared in Emanuel County, Georgia. 1
    male 45: Stephen Rich [at abt 50-60]
    female 45 [Abiah at abt 50-60]
    female 16-26


    On the census taken 1830, Stephen appeared in Emanuel County, Georgia.
    male 60-70: Stephen Rich
    female 60-70 [Abiah]

    Still researching the Brooks lineage, learning that Milton Elijah Thornton's mother was an indian - Mary Angeline Partridge married George Thornton.  These families were found in 1800 Georgia, long before the Trail of Tears of 1835.  The Brooks married into the Carter/ Cooper/ Lee families which were found in 1850 Chambers County AL census records that indicate they all came from South Carolina. We find that Mrs Andrew Cooper was named Alsey and had no last name so shall we suspect that she was an indian born about 1800 in South Carolina...and she was a great great granny to Susie Mae Cooper Brooks ( Mamaw )





    John Brooks of PA was found in 1860 census of Giles, TN where he had rented a room and wsorked as a tailor,  and he married Roxanna Permilia Smith that year.  Her mother was Caroline Bond, daughter of a John Baptist Bond of North Carolina who married a Kitty Stone of NC in 1819 in Tennessee..  The father of John Brooks came from Holland and his mother from France according to his census information.

    Roxanna's father was Thomas Smith, a son of Henry Smith and Siniah Evans who had married around 1819 in Maury County Tennessee.

    Many white pioneers settled into Tennessee amongst the indians long before the indian removal began and many indians just claimed to be white to keep their property or they intermarried ..





    Permilia named her first son John Brooks, and he married Annie Clark Ballard in TN and they moved to Alabama  with the railroad.  Annie's parents were James Ballard and Willie Eudora Craig, a daughter of Rebecca Carolina Pennington and William Craig.  Rebecca;s mother was only known as Gracey.  William 's parents were Catherine Connelly and David Craig.  All of these families lived very close to each other for meny years in TN.

    Annie Ballard's  grandparents of Tennessee were Larkin Francis Ballard and Rowena Densy  Baxter.





    Our Scottish Cochran family is found in Pennsylvania, then Ohio.  Coonfield from Holland was in PA and then Kentucky by 1800.  The Little family of Scotland settled in SC first, then Kentucky - all three families are later found in Arkansas. One piece of the puzzle in Union South Carolina 1790 census, there are several Little families living close together and we may never ever know if they are related to each other, but the names are repeated over and over in our line.

    isaac and Barsheba went to Indiana


    Our Grandfather John Little was in the Civil War. being discharged 1865



    Brother of Frank Delbert Cochran , Ky Cochran family photo



      Granny Clora Jane Miller Cochran's ancestors came from Ireland and we found her GGGgreat grandfather Reverend Alexander Miller settled in Rockingham VA.  Clora's mother was a Parker with ancestors from England settled in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York Indian Country, then Ohio. The Wright and Weatherford families came out of Charlotte VA 1700s into Kentucky.






    Ancestors of Anne Carter Cochran are English and Dutch in Virginia and the Carolinas, before migrating through Georgia and Alabama.  I find that she had many great great grannies with no last name and suspect that several took indian brides and gave them a Christian name as was the custom back then,  Researching McClain, Moon, Bozeman, Anderson, Stephens, Sellers, Broadway. Wood, Fenn, Stone, Hendrick, Harrell, WellYoungs, Davis.  


    Bozeman tombstones that I found and a picture of grandpa John Bozeman


    Elijah Lee and Andrew Cooper of South Carolina born 1770s brought their families to Chambers County Alabama, former Creek Indian Lands, before 1840.  It has been said that Elijah paid an indian directly for his land.  Elijah had married Malinda Phillips of Green County Georgia and some believe the Phillips were of indian blood.  Andrew Cooper may have also married an indian woman named Alsey and her last name had never been discovered.  On the 1840 census Alsey appears to be widowed with children. 1840 shows Elijah Lee living near a John Phillips. The Alabama Land Records show that Elijah bought land in 1823 so it was long before the Trail of Tears.

    The Lees are buried at the Old Harmony Baptist Church cemetery and the graves of the Coopers are not yet found. Aunt Sissy says that grandpa Levi Cooper is buried by his sons at a church cemetery in Cecil, Alabama.  They had resided in Whitehall.



    Descendant Susie Mae Cooper Brooks is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Montgomery Alabama.  Her descendant Charlie Brooks is buried at Brookside Memorial in Millbrook, Alabama.
    *

    Charner P Cooper, son of Andrew, married Sarah F Lee, daughter of Elijah, and their son Levi Benjamin Cooper married Sarah Elizabeth Carter, a daughter of Thomas Randolph Carter and Mary Josephine Hereford of Virginia. Mary had a beautiful complexion, black eyes and black hair. The grave of TRC born 1820 was found in Hope Hull, Montgomery, Alabama by his first wife, Lacy Jane Bozeman.



    The Bozemans came from South Carolina and NC 1700s moving into Alabama as some of the Indian Tribes moved west in the early 1800s.  Lacy's father Jesse's headstone shows that he was born 1793.  Apparently Jesse had been married twice . Many legal documents exist in Montgomery County regarding the Bozeman families.



    Jesse Bozeman was the brother of William Henry Bozeman and administrator of his Estate.  Their father was Peter Bozeman of Darlington South Carolina who served in the American Revolution along with his own father, Mordecai Bozeman.  Peter and his wife Sarah, had moved their families into Alabama about 1820 and they are probably buried in Hope Hull, Montgomery County, Alabama. Several Bozemans were buying land in Alabama in the 1820s and 1830s.



    William Henry named his sons, Meady, Peter Edward, and John Thomas Bozeman.  John's descendant, Jimmy Ray has assisted with this research.  Meady's descendant Wayne and his wife Sue Carol have also assisted.

    William Henry had a brother named Peter who died in Lousiana of Cholera
    and should not be confused with the other Peters .

    Ther are many branches of Bozemans , one John Bozeman went to Bozeman Montana, one  Bozeman married Cherokee Chief Dennis Bushyhead, one married a Jordan who descnded from pocahontas and some were rejected applicants on the rolls.

    =
    The early European Bozemans or Bosemans were found in Virginia 1600s, some going to Maryland and some going to North Carolina.  Mordecai was supposedly born in North Carolina about 1735 and it is possible that his parents were Samuel Bozeman and Mary White, since she seemed to have a brother named Mordecai.  The wife of Mordecai Bozeman is only known as Elizabeth, so once again I wonder if she was native american and given a Christian name. I found his name on the South Carolina Revolutionary War Soldiers Roster and I found his son Peter's name listed.  They received land grants for their service but after 1820 Peter moved his family to Alabama and I find them located in Montgomery census records of 1830.


    Semms like Mordecai was born possibly in Indian Territory.

    *
    Thomas Carter was the son of  John Wise Carter who some say was buried in Talladega Alabama.  John was born 1792 South Carolina, the son of Elizabeth Wise and Captain John Carter who may have served in the War of 1812 and the American Revolution. John bought land in Alabama in 1821.

    *
    Susie Mae Cooper's husband was James Edgar Brooks Sr and their son was James Jr.  The parents of James came from Tennessee with the railroad and they resided downtown Montgomery Alabama near the Union Station.  They were Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks, all buried at Greenwood.  John's father was also named John, born in Pennsylvania to Dutch parents.  He was found in the 1860 census of Giles TN, the same year he met and married Roxanna Permilia Smith.note  Our cousin Clarence and his mother Sissy have assisted with this research and contributed to the Montgomery Cemetery research with his survey of Carter-Stokes cemetery in Hope Hull.

    The Smith families connect to a Captain John Smith of Virginia.

    The Ballards were previously in the Carolinas, as were the Bond, and Ward families.
    *
    James Edgar Brooks Jr married Mary Ella Thornton and had a son named Charles in Montgomery Alabama.

    Mary Ella's parents were Bessie Mae Hood and Milton Elijah Thornton and they are buried in Slapout/ Holtville,  in Elmore County AL at the Cain's Chapel Cemetery near many other family members.

    headstones and census records
    *
    Elijah's parents came from Georgia,  Mary Angeline Partridge and George Thornton; we found their graves behind an old primitive Baptist Church in Central, Elmore, AL on the way to the Lake.
    *
    Bessie's parents were Ella Olivia Baxley and Allen Wesley Hood but his headstone has an L W on it.  His parents are hard to trace and prove.  Hers were James and Marnda Baxley of Cold Spring, Elmore, AL and thus begins the brick wall in our research.
    *
    Charles Brooks married Kathy Cochran, daughter of Anne Carter and Frankie Cochran.
    *Anne Carter was the daughter of Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter.
    *
    Frankie Cochran was born in Kansas a son of Luella Coonfield of Arkansas and Frank Delbert Cochran.

    Alice McClain's parents were Lorena Emma Bozeman and Charles Allen McClain of Ramer, Montgomery County, Alabama.  The parents of Charles were Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain ( Civil War Soldier of GA).  Josiah's ancestors were Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of Virginia 1700s.  Josiah's father James was found in Alabama on the 1860 census and had possibly married an indian named Anna.  The Broadways came out of South Carolina and Elizabeth's father Abner had married Mary Susan Stephens of Alabama.


    Lorena's parents were Alice Stephens and John Thomas Bozeman.  Alice Stephen's great great grandfather John Stephens had married a full blood Cherokee in North Carolina and began a journey to Alabama where many of his grandchildren settled in Ramer.


    Parents of John Bozeman were Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman. Peter was the son of William Henry Bozeman.  Our Bozeman family says that Peter Edward is buried behind the Hills Chapel Church in the woods where there was once a cemetery many years ago.





    Nancy's parents were Lavinia Jane Sellers and Seaborn Anderson. Lavinia's sister married a Cooper.  Seaborn Anderson's ancestors and his father Elijah had settled in Lowndes County before moving to Montgomery, Alabama.  Elijah's parents were Lavinia Brack and Elisha Anderson who's Will is located at the Montgomery County Archives. This line connects to the Mayflower's Edward Doty.as Lavinia Brack's mother was Hester Doty, a daughter of Benajah Doty and Elizabeth Farr.

    *
    Cecil's parents were Anne Lou Stone and William Frank Fenn of Bullock County Alabama. Tracing back to Michael Stone of Maryland and William Stone of Virginia. Some of the Fanns were Indian Traders into Georgia before settling in Alabama.

    *
    Luella Coonfield's parents were married in Arkansas, Lattie Cedonia Little of KY and Benjamin Wallace Coonfield of ARK
    Frank Delbert's parents were Clora Jane Miller of Iowa and Jacob Benjamin Cochran of Ohio who settled in Kansas.  Jacob had six daughters by his first wife, Mariah, who would also be related. 1880 census shows he had  a grandson named Frank by one of those girls.
    *


    The Cochran and Coonfield lineage of the midwest.  Alexander Cochran raised his family in Pennsylvania and soon settled into Ohio, possibly Quakers, with several sons joining the Civil War and even living in California during the Gold Rush.  Later these young men moved to Iowa to farm the new land, and after several years, Jacob Benjamin Cochran moved to Kansas with second wife Clora Jane Miller, a daughter of Mary Clara Parker.  Family lore is that Mary shared medicine with the indians and research shows that her ancestors were in the 1600s and 1700s New York Indian Country as well as Mass  and Rhode Island, with one cousin, Joshua Tefft was killed by King Phillip.  One Mr Sweete was banned from England as a Catholic Priest and lived in exile in France.



    As far as documenting the Cochran lineage, I have none beyond Jacob to prove the names of his parents or grandparents.  Locating a census record or a will or more would help  to prove this lineage.  Perhaps Jacob told his children about his parents but reading the census records, I can safely say there were dozens of Williams, Alexanders, and Jacob Cochrans in Pennsylvania and Ohio and even those who migrated to Iowa Territory. Apparently William Cochran married Martha Henderson in Ohio and had Jacob.



    Fortunately for many other lineages, those before us have done a lot of research that I can go back and verify for myself leaving reason to believe most of what I can see.


    Isaac and Barsheba Clark Coonfield spent many years in early Kentucky and then moved to Indiana with their grown children. She was found widowed on the 1830 census. Her son Isaac Benjamin Coonfield moved his family to Arkansas. This family is mentioned in the book of the Early History of Morgan County Indiana.  Benjamin Wallace Coonfield married Lattie Cedonia Little and they had Amy, Ruth and Luella Coonfield.  Amy married Joe Gray and I had corresponded with their daughter Verna, who forwarded copies of her late sister's research ( Dorline Gray ) who was trying to connect this lineage to Chief Powhatan.  Dorline had also been corresponding with our cousin Martha in Arizona, who also shared a great amount of research with me regarding L P Little.  L P Little had a great way of leaving a trail of his elders by giving each child a middle name of one of his ancestors.




    Arkansas land records indicate that Isaac Coonfield bought land in 1856.


    Hiram Lucius Little, son of Betsy Douglas and Jonas Little, had lost his wife, Catherine Wright, in Kentucky and moved to Texas.  His son John Little served in the Civil War as a blacksmith, married, had several children, lost his wife and then moved his family into Arkansas.  Our grandma Betsy was found widowed and living with her daughter Betsy Roberts on the 1850 census.



    Hiram Little married Rebecca Isabella Adams in Bosque County Texas and had more children including a Hiram jr.  Most are buried at the Meridian Cemetery. Hiram's headstone refers to him as a doctor and a mason.


    One Hiram Little died at the Alamo and could be connected to this family.




    Betsy Douglass Little had another son named Douglass Little who married Martha Ann Wright, his sister in law. Martha named her first son, Powhatan and he was a lawyer, and a judge, who was a great writer and did a lot of research on his lineage;  as did his daughter, Laura Simmons Little.  They traced Mary Handley to parents Martha Mason and George Handley of Ireland, noting that Mary was born asea, on the trip over. Mary's brother was Captain John Handley.  Their notes also chart a Thomas Jones settling in the 1600s on James River in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, Virginia and wrote about a Polly Jones who may have been the wife or companion of Charles Weatherford.





    Mother of the Wright sisters was Catherine Weatherford, a daughter of Charles Weatherford in Charlotte VA.  Alabama land records indicate land sold to Charles in 1841 if this is his grandson by Red Eagle. So far records only indicate one Charles Weatherford born in this time period and it is quite possible that he had more than one wife than history would like for us to believe and if he was indian trader, he probably had many children that have not been noted.  History also indicates that the father of Red Eagle was from Scotland, but it does not seem so.



    Laura  Little joined the DAR and had a monument dedicated to her great grandfather, Captain George Little in Kentucky.  Laura's granddaughter in Arizona has assisted with this research. Laura had studied the Weatherfords, Wrights and Chief Powhatan.


    Parents of Betsy were Mary Handley and Alexander Douglass who were married in PA. MMary's brother Captain John Handley became a surveyor like Davy Crockett and on one trip to the new land in Kentucky, before 1800, his brother in law, Alexander Douglass went with him and never returned.  Alexander was murdered by indians on his way back home.  His wife took her girls and moved into a scottish settlement in South Carolina, where her daughter married Jonas little. Later the father of Jonas, George Little, married his son's mother in law.  Ironically there was an older Jonas Little in South Carolina, who's descendants moved southward and into Alabama and we can only suspect there may be some connection to George.




    Hiram Little's son was John Wright Little who married a Mary Catherine Crigler. John lived with her family before the marriage, with her parents Catherine Roby and Abraham Crigler.  


    Abraham's parents were Lydia Carpenter and Owen Crigler.  Catherine's parents were Kitty Simmons and Reason Roby.  These families left Virginia to settle in the new land of Kentucky about 1800 among friendly indians who were also migrating westward.



    The Battle of Alamo lists a soldier named Hiram Little and there is a possible connection to our lineage as some of the decendants are found in Texas census records. and one receiving a land grant in Texas.





    Much of my research is being added to usgenweb.com


    Descendant of all of these was Frankie Lavern Cochran born 1927.and Kathy Cochran who was born in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma later moved to Montgomery Alabama after spendng a few years in Arizona.  Frankie had dark hair and blue eyes like his father and his younger pictures resemble his father, but as Frankie aged, he resembled his grandpa Coonfield very much.  Pictures of Catherine Crigler and then those of the Coonfield women show us they all had long dark hair in braids and dark eyes.  Luella Coonfield and her mother in law Clora Jane both smoked pipes.  The pipes are in the possession of cousin Stanley.





    Aunt Irma talked of granny Clora Jane Miller Cochran being a sweet old lady who stayed with them for a while when grandpa Jacob died.  Clora stayed with each of her children, taking turns, as she had no place to go.  She taught them about corn and how to pop it.  She mysteriously read the ashes of her pipe.  Aunt Irma was the child born with a veil over her face.  The doctor removed the veil twice as it seemed to grow back and on the third veil, her mother Luella took it and placed it in the Bible where it still exists to this day.





      Frankie's sisters have assisted with this research.  There are many documents, pictures, census records, letters marriage licenses, death certificates, land records, wills, and our other research  posted on Kathy's webpage at




    www.hometown.aol.com/kc90853/Links.html  




    Annie Carter as a baby being held by her Uncle Walton McClain shows us how very dark the McClain boys were just like their father with black eyes and black hair so it is
    quite possible that the McClain lineage was of indian blood. Annie 's school picture shows that she had long straight black hair and black eyes, even though she had it curled up in this photo of her in 1953 pregnant with Kathy in Tulsa OK.





    Looking at Annie's grandmother, Lorena Bozeman's lineage, I wondered repeatedly about her father's name, John Thomas Bozeman, and how it may have originated.  His great  grandfather Peter married a widow, Sarah Brown and she named her first son Meade so that may have been her maiden name; then a son was named William Henry and that could have been her father's name;  so looking back at the 1790 census of South Carolina, I do find a William Meade and a Thomas Meade  so this may be another clue in our mystery of names.  We know that William Henry Bozeman might have been the first to name a son John Thomas Bozeman and wonder where the name Thomas came into play.





    Digging through  mom's letters and cards, I found an article from the newspaper of 1956 that listed Lorena McClain having surgery at Maxwell AFB hospital and later found that grandpa McClain had served in WWI.  The article also listed Anne Cochran and family were relocating to Mesa Arizona and it listed her cousin James Duncan was going to San Antonio.  These were found in Anne's old blue diaper bag that she used in Mesa AZ and brought back with her to Montgomery Alabama.





    Arizana is a small memory in my mind.  We had a lot of burritos and enchiladas, that mom cooked, took pictures in the desert and grand canyon, went swimming in the Verde River and drove thru well lighted mountain tunnels.  Most of our friends and neighbors were indian or mexican and we spoke a little spanish that I have long since forgotten.  My cousin Frankie Haraughty was a daily playmate since his mom Eunice Cochran lived nearby. We played with strange bugs and creatures of the land and watched the daily irrigation of the fields when our front ditches filled with water every afternoon at 4. We had pictures of Eljondro written on them.







    One of Lorena Bozeman 's distant cousins married a Jordan which is a line leading directly to Pocahontas and some of the Jordans settled in Elmore County.  Lorena's uncle Peter Bozeman married a Dillard and that line also connects to Pocahontas.






    Cousin Elizabeth helped with the Bozeman lineage as her grandmother Ethel was the sister of my great granny Lorena. Ruby Gibson told me that Charles McClain and Jason Gibson were cousins and we connected their mothers as Broadway children of Abner Broadway and I verified through census records. One of the Gibsons had marched in Governor Wallace's inaugural parade.

    Also I was fortunate to have many conversations with Peggy Gibson before her death and learn much more about our families.
    There were stories about my grandma Lorena "healing" others, which gave me goosebumps.  She said that her parents lived in a tent there on the land she now owns, while  they built the little house that I took pictures of.I began to learn more about the Broadways in the area and how our Broadway grandmothers were sisters.



     Ruby also told me that my grandfather Cecil Carter was still in the military when he married my granny Alice McClain but I have not been able to verify.

    Elizabeth Broadway had married Josiah McClain and had Charles Allen McClain, my great grandfather who was a small, dark man, who talked of seeing the spirits. I found Elizabeth ona 1860 census  with her father Abner Broadway, who was born in Alabama but his parents had come from South Carolina.





    We do not know if there were any suvivors benefits for Cecil's children as Lorena Bozeman McClain raised them but do know the McClains left Ramer and lived on Highland Avenue for a while.  Cecil's adoption records have not been found, but his children knew of his Fenn family and I have contacted some of the Fenn relatives.





    Cousin Martha Fenn had only a few blurred pictures of Cecils' siblings and told me where Uncle Frank and Uncle Robert were buried in Coosada, Elmore County, AL.


    Her brother, my cousin Bob Fenn, talked about his family on the farm there is Coosada.


    I found another cousin, Nancy Fenn, in Montgomery, who connects to the Mathew Fenn who owned the plantation in Eufaula. She won a court battle to protect the grave of Matthew from removal by the new owner of that property.and has done extensive research on the Fenn lineage, collected many history books to document her story and told me about a Fenn bridge that our family built.





    Our great grandfather William Frank Fenn had married Anna Lou Stone and his great grandfather Michael Stone came to Alabama from Maryland.  There is a Banister Stone in my McClain / Moon family of South Carolina but I have not made any connection;  then my husband's lineage in Tennessee has a Catherine Stone of the Carolinas who married John Baptist Bond.





    Michael Stone had married Polly Wells in Putnam, Georgia and they are found on a census living in a Captain John Stone's District.  Their son Benjamin  Wilburne Stone married Sarah Davies and had Augustus Marvin Stone.  Augustus married Mary Ann Hendrick, a daughter of Mary Ann Winters and John Hendrick.


     The 1850 census of Macon County Alabama shows us Michael living next to son William and son Benjamin with their children's names listed.


    Anna's brother was Arthur Augustus Stone and his son was William Arthur Stone, known as Tige to the St Louis Cardinals of 1923.







    The obituary of grandpa Cecil lists a Walter Stone as a pallbearer.  His death certificate is signed by his brother Emmett Fenn.  Cecil is buried at Memorial Cemetery in Montgomery and Emmett is buried at Greenwood by their father.  Their father's brother Madison is buried by them without a headstone.


      Madison was known as Uncle Mat.  Uncle Mat had married  and moved to Texas and never had any children, but came back to Montgomery after his wife died.  Mat's brother Thomas had
    also gone to Texas.

    Apparently nobody knew Madison's real name when he was buried, because the cemetery has him listed as Mathew A Fenn but he has no headstone.





    After taking pictures of their headstones at Greenwood, getting close to the exit I discovered the Bozeman family plot, with Nancy Jane Anderson Bozeman buried by her sons Robert and Meady and their families. The Anderson line goes back to North Carolina with Andersons, Brack and then Doty of the Mayflower.






    My husband's great grandparents Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks of Tennessee are also buried at Greenwood by Susie Mae Cooper brooks.


       I would love to learn more about those TN families who had migrated from the Carolinas, during a time of indian removal . Indian Wars also caused many friendly indians to move westward..Annie Ballard was a beautiful dark featured lady who only had one child. Mary Josephine Hereford was from Virginina and her family all moved into Alabama and she wa also another beautiful dark featured lady.

    His name was Freelon Lorraine Cochran and his mother's maiden name is on that tombstone for some strange reason and the military documents on NARA list the fatalities of the Korean War with his name spelled wrong also. Frankie had told him not to go after he was wounded over there.

    About Our Family Research


    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.

    Wa do

    So many limbs and branches to study in this family tree!

    Our Stone - Fenn - Carter family might connect to this guy but we will move on to other research for now...like the Bozeman, McClain, Anderson, Sellers, who joined them in Alabama. These families began in Virginia and spent over one hundred years traveling into the Carolinas and Georgia living among the indians, and we find them in Ramer, Montgomery County, Alabama living among many non white families. Our indian blood is very real.

His grave is found in Greenwood Cemetery, next to Emmett and next to his brother Madison who was often called Uncle Matt.

    One fabulously rewarding trip to Greenwood Cemetery revealed the headstone of mom's grandpa W F Fenn, whom she knew very little about, so I ordered his death certificate

    http://www.rootsweb.com/~usfgs/alabama/fgssheets/f/fennwf.html

    http://www.hometown.aol.com/kathy36110/JohnFenn.html

    and the Bozeman family had a large plot there too!  One thing about these trips is the facts that you can add to your family tree;  just knowing it is so.

    Grandfather Hiram Lucius Little was born in Kentucky to parents, Jonas Little and Betsy Douglas.

    Jonas was the son of scottish parents Mary and Captain George Little.  When Mary died, George married his son's mother in law, Mary Handley Douglas.

    Mary Douglass' husband Alexander was murdered after exploring new land in
    Kentucky with his brother in law, John Handley and they were returning to Pennsylvania.

    Therefore Alexander Douglass and George Little are also our grandparents.


    Hiram Lucius Little was married to Catherine Wright and her parents were John C Wright and Catherine G Weatherford of Charlotte VA where they married in 1811 according to old documents the state of VA has posted online.

    Those documents also state that Catherine Weatherford was the daughter of Charles.

    Hiram Lucius had a son named John Wright Little who married Catherine Crigler and they had a daughter named Lattie Cedonia Little.

    Lattie's daughter with Benjamin Wallace Coonfield was named Luella Coonfield .

    Luella said that she was one quarter Cherokee Indian Blood.

    Notes @
     http://www.hometown.aol.com/hope36066/Notes.html



    Anne Alice Carter was born in March 1934 but named Annie Lee Carter to parents Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter who lived on Columbus Street.  

    Parents of Alice McClain were Lorena Emma Bozeman and Charles Allen McClain of Ramer, living on Highland Avenue.

     Parents of Cecil were Annie Lee Stone and William Franklin Fenn who were from Bullock County but divorced about 1901. Annie Stone married an unknown Carter in Macon Georgia who adopted Cecil.  Annie's lineage continues to unfold throughout the state of Georgia.  Her mom was Mary Ann Hendrick, daughter of Mary Winters and Christopher Hendrick who's brother John Hendrick had married Frances Winters.  Mr. Winters had married Amelia Lyle, in 1816, who's family from Virginia discovered gold in Georgia and owned lots of land and owned many many slaves in Jackson County.


    In 1951 Anne Alice Carter married Frankie Lavern Cochran of Kansas while he was stationed at Maxwell AFB after he was wounded in Korea and they moved to Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma and then into Mesa Arizona.

    Both Anne and Frank were Cherokee Indian.

    1. grandpa Cecil Earl Fenn Carter


    3. the Carter Kids were very dark, with black eyes and black hair


    5 grandpa Cecil at Fort Bliss, El Paso TX



    Cochran Lineage of Kansas and Arkansas included Coonfield and Little of Kentucky and both were likely of Cherokee Indian Blood.
    http://www.hometown.aol.com/angel09853/6.html




     

     

    1. Luella Ellen Coonfield married Frank Delbert Cochran photo and another of their son, Frankie Lavern Cochran with his sons.  Frankie looks very much like Luella's father

    2. Lorena Emma Bozeman ( McClain ) in 1941

    pictures of Lorena's brother Bob and sister Ethel are posted at
    http://www.genealogy.com/users/t/r/e/Family-Tree-Alabama/index.html




    4. Annie's mother, Alice Emma McClain ( Carter ) about 1930



    7. Benjamin Wallace Coonfield, father of Luella mentioned above, and another photo of his family when he was a small child.   I think my brother has Ben's ears.

    8. Frank Delbert Cochran and his wife Luella.  The parents of Frank Delbert were Clora Jane Miller and Jacob Benjamin Cochran.



    11 Catherine Crigler married John Little,  holding baby Lattie Cedonia Little, who was the mother of Luella.


    13 John Wright Little about 1900 with his grown up children after they moved into Marble Township Arkansas.

    14 Martha Ann Wright was John's Aunt, being a sister of his mother Catherine Wright who married Hiram Lucius Little.  Martha was married to Hiram's brother, Douglass Little.  Martha named her son Powhatan.  The mother of Martha Ann Wright was Catherine Weatherford, who had married John Wright in Charlotte VA 1811.



    17 Frankie Lavern Cochran with cousin Roy Miller in Chetopa Kansas.   When Frankie's grandparents left Iowa and settled in Kansas, Clora Miller's brother John followed them - there were several Millers born in Kansas.

    18.  Katie Bell McClain Coley, sister of Alice McClain Carter.  When Annie and Frankie came back from Arizona, they rented a house two doors down from Aunt Katie in 1959 on Maplewood Drive.  Katie's sister, our Aunt Mary Ruth McClain Curlee lived a few doors down and their brother, our Uncle Joe McClain came to visit quite often.

    Benjamin Wallace Coonfield family photos

    Charles Allen McClain family photos



    these pictures show them with curly hair it was very straight - I remember the spit curls - they rolled up their hair with bobbie pins.  I recall granny Lorena having long hair that she rolled up in a bun.  Her daughters Katy and Alice kept their hair cut short.
