  • Cornie is found under the name Connie in several references.  Ilearned only in April 2015 that her full name was Cornelia, accountingfor the comon reference in records and family information as Cornie.

    "Cornelia is one of eleven children born to David Pressly Cochran(1848-1895) and Rosaline E Hanna (1854-1908)."

    Cornie Cochran was the third wife of William Thomas Jones.  Her lastchild Levi Everett Jones was born on 12 Mar 1919.  By the February1920 census, Cornie has died (census date was actually January 1, soshe died before the end of 1919).  William Thomas is reported as awidower.  It is possible, then, that Cornie died in childbirth withLevi on 12 March 1919 or shortly thereafter.  I have not foundCornie's death or burial information.

    I have not been able to determine definitively who Cornie's parentsare.  I have found a 1900 census listing in Prairie Township ofArkansas County (Ethel area) of a Cochran family with a daughterConnie L, age 24, and with an actual birthday of November 1875 inMississippi.

    In later censuses, Cornie M Cochran/Jones' age puts her born inMississippi about 1876.  This Connie L Cochran is the oldest child inthe household of her widowed mother Rosa, with younger siblingsLeviticus B, Addie M, Lydia, Belle L and Hallie M.  This would fit,because William Thomas Jones married Cornie Cochran in about 1903.
