> Hi Everyone,
> I'm helping a friend start searching for his family. My friend's father was:
> William Foster Cockrell born April 1900 in Eros. I thought I would start with the 1900 census in hopes the census was taken after April. William had a brother named Jim, who built houses in the Eros or Monroe area. There were other brothers and sisters but William was the oldest child.
> My friend's paternal grandfather, he doesn't know his name, had a store in Monroe, La. His paternal grandmother's maiden name was French from south Louisiana. He doesn't know her maiden name.
> When the depression hit and times got tough, William's father moved the family to Alvin, Brazoria County, Texas and took up farming.
