Thomas Cohron

M, b. say 1720, d. after 14 March 1786
  • Last Edited: 30 Aug 2018
  • Name Variation: Thomas Cochran
  • Birth*: say 1720
  • Land Grant/Patent*: 4 March 1775; Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina; NC Patent Book 25, Page 41 -- to John Lawson, 73 acres in Mecklenburg on a branch of Crooked Creek - including Lawson's improvement, joining Aaron Hueston, (a point) above Huestons (?) house, THOMAS COHERON, and both sides of the creek.1
  • Death*: after 14 March 1786; Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina
  • Research Note*: 23 August 2018; Thomas moved with his father & brothers to Mecklenburg Co., NC when that state opened to land buyers in the mid-1740's. (Thomas remained in that area his entire life, with his Will being found there, dated March 14, 1786 (Mecklenburg Co. Will Book, page 190).
    Thomas was a veteran of the Revolutionary War (need to research to find the unit) but suspect (per his Will and location in NC at that time) that he served for the Confederacy. In the book "The Mecklenburg Signers and Their Neighbors", by Ray Worth, Thomas and his sons are mentioned (I have not seen this source myself so unknown in reference to what)...
    "American Prisoners of the Revolutionary War", by Dandridge, states that Thomas, James, John, Robert, and Richard Cochran from Mecklenburg Co., NC were prisoners in the prison ship "Forby", in the Chester Bay in 1774.
    Information from his Will indicates that Thomas owned 150 acres and some other land in adjoining counties that contained 65 acres, with another tract of land on the "Camp Branch of Twelve Mile Creek" containing another 200 acres. The lands in entirety were left to his widow, under the stipulation that she use the land to provide for the "schooling" of their children until the youngest son reached the age of 21. At that time the lands, totaling approximately 415 acres, were to be divided equally among them. The daughter, Jean, is not mentioned in the Will. Further stipulations related to his slave: "It is likewise my Will that my Negro Wench named Chieo remain and be with my widow and her children's use during her widowhood then come to my sons above named as an undivided right and not to be sold but for some notorious fault, but if it so happens that said wench Chieo should have children before my youngest son or surviving youngest be of full age, then John, William, and Robert shall each of them have one of the said children. John the oldest of them, William the next oldest, and Robert the next, and said wench and her increase beside to be the property of my widow."2

Jacob Cohron

M, b. say 1735
  • Last Edited: 3 Jul 2019
  • Birth*: say 1735
  • Deed*: 16 November 1764; Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina; Jacob Cohron of Mecklinburg Co sold land to Charles McLean (another Fondren buddy) 16 Nov 1764 WIT: John WILSON, John FONDREN,and James Templeton; Witness=John Fondren (?)
  • Deed: 27 August 1768; Tryon Co., North Carolina; On 27 August 1768Jacob Cohronsold toCharles McLean300 acres on Crowders Creek [now in Gaston County, NC] with witnesses includingJohn WilsonandJohn Fondren(Tryon/Lincoln Deed Bk 1 p 12).; Witness=John Fondren
  • Research Note*: 28 June 2019; From Marianne Hatton: Tryon/Lincoln Deed Bk 1 pg 12 "Charles McLean purchase land on Allison's Creek from William and Elizabeth Huggins. Charles and Susannah (wife) sold this land ( 400 acres) to JOHN FONDREN. Then sold 100 acres to JOHN WILSON,
    1768 JACOB COHRON sold to Charles McLean land on Crowders Creek. Wit: JOHN WILSON AND JOHN FONDREN. Tryon Deeds pg 752-758.

    This is also where Cornelius and Samuel lived and they sold their land around that same time. I am thinking that is when they actually moved to Willkes. John Wilson is the father of Andrew Wilson. I have a notation from a Wilson researcher who states that Ann was a Wilson and that Martha Cohron Wilson (m. Andrew) was the daughter of Ann and Cornelius.
    SAMUEL COHRON bought land on Crowders Creek next door to JACOB COHRON. land deed, but I cannot find the reference at this moment. Then 21 Dec 1767 he sold it to William somebody. and the deed states adj. to JACOB COHRON. Wit; RICHARD BARRY, JACOB COBURN, HUGH BARRY

    Note: This Barry, Berry name is key to me as well. James Berry Fondren is one of the 3 sons in Wilkes Co. s/o John and Sally_______Fondren.

    So you have Jacob, Samuel, and Cornelius all together owning land on the N. Fork of Crowders Creek. I looked on a map and as best I can tell, this is Southeast of Kings Mountain.

    Just educated guessing, but it seems that Jacob Cohron would have been born around 1720 and John Fondren and John Wilson were all in that age bracket. And GUESSING he got married around 1740ish, then the chilidren could run from early 40's to 1760.Hannah [if a daughter of Jacob] would then be about the right age to marry James Fondren. James was born 1758-1762. But she could also be a Berry.1
