I am posting this information as I responded to a query on the Cockerham GenForum.
Hi John, thanks for writing. I'm descended from Miles Cockerham (John Miles Cockerham). Everything I have seen on the internet shows John William Cockerham (he went by William) and Elizabeth Hill the parents of these lines. However, I also have copies of The Heritage of Surry County, NC, Vol. 1, 1984 and Vol. II 1994 that shows John William Cockerham and Elizabeth with completely different descendants. I do not know if they had children in North Carolina and then moved to Kentucky and had more that the relatives were not aware of?? Larry Cockerham has alot of postings on this genforum and has this line also I believe or maybe a collateral line. You may want to read these. There is also a DNA study, www.familytreedna.com/public/Cockerham
that Lorris Cockerham from Arizona is managing. They probably need direct Cockerham male dna, like yours. I'm not sure if there are any results from this DNA testing. I haven't been keeping up like I should. I hope this gives you brief synopsis of what I know. Most of my line changed their name to Cochran. I have seen it spelled every which way but up. I am glad to share whatever information I have. Please feel free to correspond.
