Yes, you did miss the middle child Vida M dau 4 AR AR AR from the
1910 Cleveland twp Fulton Co. census.
Maybe someone who has the Fulton Co. Marriage records will have the
record of William Frank Cochran and Alice M. Welch about 1916.
Thanks for the marriage of Ora Cochran and Wiley Jones. Ora must have
had a second husband as she is listed as Ora Benbrook in the obits for
Powell Cochran in 1983, and Reba Caruthers in 1989.
Again thanks for the obit of John D. Cochran.
