  • Cornie is found under the name Connie in several references.  I learned only in April 2015 that her full name was Cornelia, accounting for 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 last child Levi Everett Jones was born on 12 Mar 1919.  By the February 1920 census, Cornie has died and William Thomas is reported as a widower.  The census date was actually January 1, so she died before the end of 1919.  Cornie's actual birth date, along with that of other family members, was reported to me by a family researcher, Terry Carty, as 8 October 2019.

    In later censuses, Cornie M Cochran/Jones' age puts her born in Mississippi about 1876.  This Connie L Cochran is the oldest child in the household of her widowed mother Rosa, with younger siblings Leviticus B, Addie M, Lydia, Belle L and Hallie M..

    There is a 1900 census listing in Prairie Township of Arkansas County (Ethel area) of another Cochran family with a daughter Connie L, age 24, with an actual birthday of November 1875 in Mississippi.
