      Notes from a letter from Frank Cockerham Oct 15th 1997.
      ...the decendants of Abel Sparks and Sarah"Cockran" believe that Sarah's father was Humphrey Cockerham of Wilkes Co. NC because Abel Soarks was living on contiguous property to Humphrey on Jan. 25th, 1800 - deed book GH p.26; and on Dec 12th 1801 , a deed from Humphrey to Abel Sparks was made for 150 acres for 100 pounds sterling - deed book F1 p.183. Abel was born about 1778, died 1872. Sarah was born about 1779, died Aug. 12th, 1853, aged 74 years, in Wisconsin....The decendants know that Sarah was supposed to have been a Cochran. It is a long standing tradition because one of her daughters named her second son James Cochran Kirkpatrick.
