Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 264, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana.

"A. COCHRAN is a native of Jefferson County, Indiana, and is the third of the eleven children born to ANDREW and ELIZABETH (WOODS) COCHRAN. He was married in Madison, Indiana, in 1849, to MISS MINERVA G. MORRIS, a native of Indiana, and daughter of WILLIAM MORRIS. After a three years' residence in Madison, MR. COCHRAN moved to New Albany, and in 1854 came to Brookston, where, in 1870, he established his present business of undertaking, dealing in furniture and house building. He has four business rooms in a row, owns four lots and part of two others, and has another house and lot in the east part of town, and also owns one farm of eighty acres and one of twenty. He has served as Town Trustee six or seven years, and as School Trustee two or three years. MRS. COCHRAN died in 1857, and his second wife was a MISS MICHELLE FRENCH, who died November 30, 1882. MR. COCHRAN has three children living - WILLIAM A. by his first wife, and SHERMAN and C.C. by his second. MR. COCHRAN has been a very successful business man, and stands well in his community and in the Odd Fellows' order."
