|Maranda Jane Cockrell-
Thanks for the interesting articles. I'm afraid that I know nothing about : "Uncle Si" Cockrell (born 1801). I do believe that the Cockrell brothers we've been discussing were grandsons of a Simon Cockrell (1745-1835) who was born in Virginia.
I can tell you that no Cockrells are on my list of men who rode with Quantrill, though I certainly won't maintain that my list is perfect.
I haven't done much research into Cockrell genealogy, but taking Francis Marion Cockrell as subject, it seems that:
His parents were Joseph Cockrell and Nancy Ellis.
His wives were : 1) Arethusa Stapp (1853) , died 1859, 2) Anne E. Mann (1867), died 1873, and: 3) Anna Ewing (1873).
First cousins included Elisha Logan Cockrell and Harrison Cockrell, who were both legislators and judges in KY. I note that some relatives in KY spell the name Cockrill.
I'd be curious to find out more about this Simon Cockrell (born in 1801).
This is a fine exercise, since I'm looking in places where I haven't looked before.
