  • Obituary*: "SAFETY COUPLING LAW ADVOCATOR IS DEAD
       "E. G. SESSIONS OF RICE WAS WELL KNOWN AS RESULT OF CAMPAIGN.
       "Special to The News.
       "Rice, Navarro Co., Tex., July 5 [1913].—E. G. Sessions, a resident of Navarro County since 1843, died at his home at this place at 6:40 o’clock this morning.
       "Mr. Sessions was well known, being a personal friend of Hon. W. J. Bryan and other men of National prominence. He worked several years to have Congress pass the safety appliance law compelling railroads to equip their cars with safety drawheads, and at last Congress passed the same effective in 1890. Mr. Sessions received the hearty approbation for his untiring energy toward the automatic car coupler law from such personages as Edward A. Mosley, John H. Reagan, J. N. Miller, S. P. Brooks, David F. Hunt, W. J. Bryan, Bishops Dunne and Garrett and many other notable men.
       "Mr. Sessions was born in Mississippi Nov. 10, 1840. He came to Texas with his father, Isaac Sessions, in 1843 and settled at Sessions (named for his father), five miles east of Rice, following the pursuit of farming until the opening of the Civil War, when he enlisted in Hood’s Texas Brigade, serving in many of the hardest battles.
       "Losing his health in the army, Mr. Sessions was discharged and returned to Rice. He married Mary E. Graham Aug. 30, 1864, and settled down to farming near Rice. To this couple were born nine children, three of which died young. Mrs. Sessions died in 1899. Mr. Sessions is survived by six children—Mrs. Lee Billingsly of Dallas, Tex; Miss Lillian Sessions of Rice, Tex; Scott Sessions of Rice, D. E. Sessions of Alba, Ok., and Albert and Marion Sessions of Pueblo, Colo. One only sister, Mrs. W. D. Haynie of Rice, is living, also several half brothers and sisters.
       "Funeral services will be held in the Haynie Memorial Methodist Church at Rice Sunday at 1 p. m., burial in Rice Cemetery at 3 p. m., service being conducted by the Masonic Lodge."15
  • Note*: He came from Mississippi to Texas in 1843 with his father, who settled at Sessions in Navarro County. He farmed until the Civil War, when he enlisted in Hood's Texas Brigade in the Confederate Army, served in many battles, lost his health, and was discharged before war's end. He returned to farming near Rice, about five miles west of Sessions. From his obituary: "He worked several years to have Congress pass the safety appliance law compelling railroads to equip their cars with safety drawheads, and at last Congress passed the same effective in 1890. Mr. Sessions received the hearty approbation for his untiring energy toward the automatic car coupler law" from William Jennings Bryan, John H. Reagan, and others.7

  • Obituary*: MINISTER BURIED TUESDAY MORNING IN RICE CEMETERY
    REV. W. J. LACKEY DIED EARLY MONDAY AFTER LINGERING ILLNESS
    Funeral services were held at the Cumberland Presbyterian church Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock for the remains of Rev. W. J. Lackey, Cumberland Presbyterian minister, aged 74 years, who died at his residence, 301 1-2 West Third avenue at 2:15 o'clock Monday Morning. He had been ill for a number of months. the body was carried to the church at 8 o'clock and laid in state until the funeral hour. The services at the church were conducted by Rev. J. W. Pearson. The body was taken to Rice for interment and the Masonic Order had charge at the grave.
    Rev. Lackey is survived by one daughter, Miss Maud Lackey of Corsicana; one brother, Rev. J. Lackey of Rice, and one sister, Mrs. J. S. Waggoner of San Antonio.
    He was born at Mt. Hope, Ala. and was educated at Trinity University, Cumberland University, Lebanon, Tenn; and Cumberland College, Leonard, Texas. He was president of Cumberland College, at Leonard, Texas, and was financial agent of Trinity University for a number of years.
    He was pastor of churches at Rice, Itasca, Waco, Corsicana, Tyler, Texarkana, Leonard, Dallas and Ludonia.
    Pallbearers were Clay Nash, Cal Kerr, Tom Kerr, A. G. Elliott, O. A. Smith and J. M. Smith.
    During the funeral hour the Corsicana National Bank, of which Miss Maud Lackey is an employee, was closed.7
  • Note*: His grave marker and two cemetery books (no doubt based on the inscription on the grave marker) give 10 Aug 1926 as the date of his death, but his obituary in the 10 Aug 1926 edition of the Corsicana Daily Sun says he died on Monday, 9 Aug 1926 and seems more likely to be correct.8,9,10

John Hughes Cochran

M, ID# 18170, b. 28 June 1838, d. 20 October 1928

John Hughes Cochran, from newspaper obituary.
  • Note*: On graduation from McKenzie College in Red River County, Texas with high honors, and after serving on its faculty in 1858-59, he joined the Texas Rangers and commanded a company that was sent to Young County, Texas in 1860 to gather census data. He served as a private in Company C, 6th Texas Cavalry, from the beginning of the Civil War until two years later, when he returned to Dallas, Texas because of ill health. He was elected tax assessor-collector for Dallas County on his return and served until 1866, when he did not run for reelection. He was a Democrat and, beginning in 1873, he was elected to two-year terms in the House of Representatives for the 14th, 15th, 16th, 22nd, and 23rd Texas Legislatures, being elected as speaker of the house for the 16th and 23rd Legislatures. He served as postmaster of Dallas from 1887 to 1889. In 1894 he moved to Nolan County, Texas, where he farmed, raised livestock, and was elected to three terms as county judge. He was an alternate delegate to the Democratic national convention in 1912. He was a Mason and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In the last few years of his life he wrote a history of Dallas County, which was published shortly after his death. He and Martha had six children: "The two elder sons, William R. and James A., died just as they had attained manhood. They were bright, promising youths, an honor to their parents and a credit to the community in which they were reared." A photograph of his grave marker is on the Decker Cemetery web site.3,12,13

Dr. Archelaus Madison ('Arch') Cochran

M, ID# 18171, b. 25 December 1839, d. 4 August 1910

Dr. Archelaus Madison Cochran.

  • Other Names*: Archelaus Madison Cochran, Archelaus Cochran, Arch Cochran.
  • Obituary*: "DALLAS COUNTY PIONEER DIES WHILE IN TENNESSEE
       "DR. ARCH M. COCHRAN HAD LIVED IN COUNTY SINCE 1843.
       "Had Been Member of Legislature, Alderman, Postmaster and Candidate for Governor.
       "Dr. Arch M. Cochran died yesterday at Columbia, Tenn., where he was visiting his son, who is in business there. The body will be brought to Dallas for burial. Dr. Cochran, accompanied by his wife, left Dallas June 15, to visit the place of his birth, Columbia, Tenn. While he had been in feeble health for some time, the immediate cause of his death was a stroke of paralysis. The funeral announcement will be made later.
       "Dr. Cochran was born Dec. 25, 1839. He was the second son of William M. and Nancy Jane Hughes Cochran, with whom he came to Dallas County in 1843. He received the advantages of a common school education and attended McKenzie College, after which he graduated from the medical department of the University of Louisiana at New Orleans. In 1861 he enlisted in the Eighth Texas Cavalry as Third Lieutenant of Company C. He was afterward promoted to First Lieutenant and finally to Captain. He served in Texas, Louisiana and Tennessee. He was in the battle of Cotton Plant and at Arkansas Post he was taken prisoner and sent to Camp Chase, in Ohio.
       "At the close of the war Dr. Cochran returned to Dallas and engaged in the practice of his profession. He served one term in the Legislature in 1866. The following year he was elected to represent the Second Ward in the City Council. In 1879 he was appointed postmaster at Dallas by President Hayes and served during the Administration of that President. In 1883 he was appointed internal revenue collector for this district. In 1887 he stumped the State for the anti-prohibition ticket, making such a brilliant campaign that the anti-prohibitionists of Georgia invited him to stump that State for their ticket. In 1890 he was nominated by Gov. Ross and appointed by President Harrison as commissioner to the Columbian Exposition from the State of Texas.
       "Dr. Cochran was married in 1866 to Miss Laura A. Knight, daughter of O. W. and Serena Hughes Knight of Dallas County. Mrs. Cochran died in 1870, leaving one child, Mamie M. Dr. Cochran was again married in 1871 to Mrs. Mary A. Collins, a native of Washington County, Arkansas. Mrs. Cochran and the following children survive him: William M., B. Porter and A. M. Cochran.
       "The Cochrans were a pioneer family in Dallas County. Dr. Cochran's father was the first County Clerk of the county and was later a member of the Legislature for the district of which Dallas County was a part. His brother, Hon. John H. Cochran, now a resident of Howard County, represented Dallas for several years in the Legislature and was twice elected Speaker of the House. He was also postmaster at Dallas under the Cleveland Administration. Dr. Cochran was Republican nominee for Governor in 1886, and he made a vigorous canvass of the State. He was a fluent talker and one of the best stump speakers of his day, never failing to draw a crowd."27
  • Scrapbook*: "FUNERAL OF DR. A. M. COCHRAN.
       "Service at Trinity Church Is Attended by Many from All Parts of Dallas County.
       "People from all parts of the county attended the funeral of Dr. Arch M. Cochran at Trinity Methodist Church yesterday afternoon. A larger crowd has not attended a funeral in Dallas for some time. The altar and the casket were covered with flowers. Rev. H. A. Bourland, in his discourse, spoke feelingly of the life and work of the man, whom he had known and whose friendship he said he had enjoyed for many years. Rev. W. H. (Uncle Buck) Hughes, a relative and life-long friend of Dr. Cochran, and Rev. W. D. Bradfield, pastor of Trinity Church, assisted in the service. The burial was in Greenwood Cemetery.
       "The pallbearers were Capt. W. H. Gaston, T. A. Hoard, Alex Cockrell, John W. Wright, Capt. Benjamin M. Melton and Patrick O'Keefe."28
  • Note*: One source gives 25 Sep 1839 as his birth date and attributes it to a family bible. He attended McKenzie College and the University of Louisiana in New Orleans, completed his medical education about 1861, returned to Dallas, Texas, and, in June 1861, enlisted in the 8th Texas Cavalry (Terry's Texas Rangers). He enlisted as a third lieutenant, was promoted to captain, was captured at Arkansas Post, and was imprisoned at Camp Chase, Ohio for the duration of the war. He returned to Dallas and established a medical practice. He was a Republican and served in the Texas Legislature in 1866-1867 and on the Dallas City Council in 1867 and 1872-73. He was postmaster of Dallas from 1879 to 1883, was chairman of the Republican State Executive Committee from 1881 to 1883, was named internal revenue collector in Dallas in 1883, was nominated by the Republican Party to run for governor in 1887 (campaigning against prohibition) but was not elected, and was the Texas commissioner to the 1890 Columbian Exposition. He had one child with his first wife, Laura Knight, and two children with his second wife, Mary A. Collins.11,29,30,14

Gen. James Monroe Cochran

M, ID# 18172, b. 1 June 1846, d. 25 December 1924
  • Scrapbook*: "Veteran Falls on Icy Street and Breaks Leg
       "Gen. J. M. Cochran, 3315 Oak Lawn avenue, early resident of Dallas County and now and for the last twelve years commander of Sterling Price Camp, United Confederate Veterans, was one of the first victims of Friday morning's blizzard, falling on the icy pavement near his home, and breaking his right leg between the knee and hip. Gen. Cochran was on his way to take a street car when he slipped and fell. The accident occurred within two blocks of his home. He was taken to Baylor Hospital in an ambulance, and physicians there report his condition satisfactory.
       "Gen. Cochran was the second male white child to be born in what is now Dallas County, his birth on June 1, 1846, being one month and eleven days before the county was formally organized. He is now in his seventy-ninth year. A Lieutenant General in the Trans-mississippi Division of the Confederate Army during the Civil War, Gen. Cochran has been prominent in the veterans' organization for many years. He also is active in Masonic work, being one of the two living charter members of John A. Smith Lodge."19
  • Note*: He operated a farm where Love Field airport in Dallas, Texas is now located.20

George W. Cochran

M, ID# 18176, b. 11 January 1851, d. 1 January 1872
  • Obituary*: "DIED
       "At the residence of Dr. A. M. Cochran, in this city on the 1st inst., GEORGE W. COCHRAN, aged 20 years 11 months and 20 days.
       "Just on the verge of manhood, and the bloom of youth, he was snatched from the social circle of his many, many friends. He had just arrived at an age when he could back on the happy past and exclaim: “God has spared me thus far, and will even spare me to an old age, and with His Divine assistance I will improve my allotted time to the best of my ability.” But “ye know not when the hour cometh.” Little did we know, ere the old year had forever past; and the new one had stepped forth in all its glory, that his soul, with many others, had winged its way to eternity. Little did we think, when we rose to greet the silvery rays of the morn of a Bright New Year, it would bring the sad—very sad—intelligence of the chilling death of our youthful and much lamented friend.
       "He leaves behind an aged and much bereaved mother, a broken hearted sister, and four older brothers, besides many devoted relations and warm friends, to mourn his loss.—
       "Do not mourn, dear mother,
       "Sister, do not weep;
       "For thy noble son and brother
       "Is mingling with the meek.
       "W. T. S."7
