Martha Alice ('Mattie') Cochran

F, ID# 18227, b. 25 December 1848, d. 16 September 1908
  • Other Names*: Mattie Cochran, Martha Alice Cochran Harris, Mattie Harris.
  • Obituary*: MRS. MARTHA A. HARRIS IS DEAD.
    Of Pioneer Texas Family, Prominent in Dallas County, Leader in Religious and Social Affairs.
    Mrs. Martha Alice Cochran Harris died suddenly of hemorrhage last night about 30:30 o'clock at the residence of her son, William R. Harris, at 438 [middle digit unclear] Swiss avenue, in this city. She was born Dec. 25, 1848, and was 59 days, 8 months and 21 days old. The funeral arrangements will not be announced until word is received from a brother, John H. Cochran, who resides at Decker, Nolan County.
    Mrs. Harris was born in Dallas County, about five miles north of the city. She was the daughter of William and Mattie J. Cochran, who moved to this State and county from Tennessee in the early days of Texas, founding Cochran's Chapel settlement. She was married on April 10, 1867, to William Harris, a native Texan, descended from an old Tennessee family. He was a Confederate veteran and died in Dallas in 1904. Mrs. Harris had resided in Dallas about twenty-eight years. She was a member of the First Methodist Church.
    The following near relatives survive: John H. Cochran of Decker, a brother; Dr. Arch M. Cochran and James M. Cochran of Dallas, also brothers, and the following children: Mrs. H. H. Jacoby, nee Miss Laura J. Harris; Miss Clara A. Harris, Miss Mary M. Harris, William R. Harris, A. B. Harris and J. C. Harris. All the children reside in Dallas.
    All through her log life, Mrs. Harris had been active in Christian work. Even when failing health prevented her regular attendance upon church, her interest was not less intense.
    She was popular in the old settlers' organization and in the social affairs of the city and county.
    The body will be interred at Cochran's Chapel, for so long the center of the family circle, now so large and widespread. John H. Cochran resides forty miles from a railroad and communication in the Western country is slow. Funeral arrangements will be completed when he is heard from.9
  • Note*: She was born on the family farm in Dallas County, Texas, then about five miles north of the city of Dallas. At the time of her death she had lived in the city about twenty-eight years. She was a Methodist and was a member of the First Methodist Church in Dallas when she died. Her survivors included three brothers and six children.5

  • Other Names*: Obadiah Knight, Obediah Woodson Knight, Obediah Knight.
  • Note*: "In 1846 Obadiah W. Knight, who had married one of the Tennessee Hughes sisters, reached Dallas and established a little trading post where Cedar Springs Avenue now joins Oak Lawn Avenue. He built a small church and another building which is credited with being the first public school in Dallas County. He hauled the timber for the building from the piney woods with his oxen and Negro slaves, and the venture cost him $300 in gold." "He purchased 1,000 acres of land, which he placed under cultivation, and was the owner of slaves, although he was opposed to the principle of bartering in flesh and blood." A Dallas elementary school is named for him. There were nine sons and eight daughters in their family.9,10,11

  • Other Names*: Barksdale Cochran, B. Porter Cochran.
  • Obituary*: "BARKSDALE P. COCHRAN DEAD.
       "Funeral Will Be Held Tomorrow Afternoon at 3 o'Clock at Trinity Methodist Church.
       "Barksdale Porter Cochran, 42 years old, died yesterday at his home, 2712 Boll street. Funeral services will be held at Trinity Methodist Church at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. The service will be conducted by the Rev. S. H. C. Burgin, assisted by the Rev. G. B. Fladher and the Rev. O. H. Thomas. The burial will be in Oakland Cemetery. The active pallbearers will be D. C. Whiteley, Fred Patrick, Ben F. Cullum, James E. Record, Sam Smith and Marsh Elliston. The honorary pallbearers will be Matt L. Cobb, Edward Underwood, S. Leslie Stewart, Sam Barnett, Beverly Kendall and Frank E. Hendricks.
       "Mr. Cochran, who was a native of Dallas County, is survived by his wife, two sons, Porter and Archie M., and one daughter, Mrs. Frances Chadwick; his mother, Mrs. A. M. Cochran, and two brothers, William M. Cochran and A. M. Cochran. Mr. Cochran had been connected with the County Clerk's office for several years prior to his death."10
  • Note*: His obituary said that he "had been connected with the County Clerk's office [in Dallas County, Texas] for several years prior to his death." It also said that he would be buried in Oakland Cemetery in Dallas, but he now is interred in Greenwood Cemetery in Dallas; I have not been able to determine whether the obituary was wrong or whether he was buried at Oakland and later was moved to Greenwood.11
