     CHAPTER 21

John COCKRELL OF Richmond County, Virginia

John COCKRILL came to America with Braddock and settled in Richmond County, Virginia where he was a large planter. In Oct 1756 enlisted with Capt Henry Harrison in the French and Indian War. John was 5’11" tall with brown hair and brown eyes. He supposedly married twice but nothing is known of his first wife. Many believe that she was a Tarpling/Trapling. His second wife was a Miss Fox. Many attribute the Reverend Simon Cockrell to this John Cockrell by his first wife. By his second wife, John had a son Major John COCKRELL who was born in Virginia. He died in Nashville, Tennessee 11 Apr 1837. He married Ann Robertson Johnson. Notable Southern Families page 21.
   
It is likely that John is related to our family. We have nothing to document a relationship except what we have presented in this work. We have two different birth dates 1725 and 1740.

In October of 1756 he enlisted with Captain Henry Harrison's company in response to the call of Governor Dimwiddie for volunteers in the French and Indian Wars. In the record of his enlistment he is described as being five feet eleven inches tall and with brown hair and eyes. He is further said to have been a man of good education and pleasing appearance and manner.

John Cockrill of Richmond County, Virginia is on the roll of Captain Henry Harrison's Company in the French and Indian War, July 13, 1756. Enlisted on Oct 6 1755; a planter of Richmond County, Virginia. John was (born in 1725 in Virginia) age 30 years, height 5 feet 10 inches tall. Do we have two different John COCKRELL / John COCKRILL men or is these just the normal errors you find in records of that era?

If this John did marry twice and IF he was the Rev. Simon’s father he would have married at the young age of 16 or 17 and the following would be his descendants:

This information came from a book entitled The COCKRILL Family of Madison County, Tennessee by Carmen Cockrill BRUER in 1960. 25 page document full of Family History and Stories about the family.
The above is an abstract of the genealogy of that document. I have also added children from ll Junior dated 22 May 1915 pages 29 and 30.
.He served in the command of Colonel William Russell and was sent to Wautauga in June of 1776. The following winter he joined under Brigadier McIntosh and continued in the service until 1779, when he followed James Robertson to the Bluff settlement in the Cumberland, afterwards Nashville. From Nashville he returned to the older settlement and accompanied the Adventurer Flotilla on its long and adventurous trip. It was probably on this trip that the romance that had its culmination in the marriage of Ann Robertson Johnson and Major John Cockrill, began. She was the widowed sister of James Robertson and accompanied the family to the new settlement with her three daughters.

Simon COCKRELL & Mary Magdalne VARDEMAN
