Richard, we have corresponded before and figured out that the connection between your William and Jane Alcorn Cochran and my Eliza Garst Cochran is that among their children was Francis Marion Cochran (1837-1862). Francis and his first wife Mary Flook (m. 19 Nov 1857) were the parents of the Oliver Monroe Cochran (b. 1858) who married Eliza Jane Garst (b. 1859) in 1878. After Francis died in the Civil War, his widow Mary married on 4 Nov 1869 Henry Cochran (who was another son of your William and thus the uncle of Mary's first husband Francis Cochran). Her son Oliver was just eleven at the time. Henry and Mary Cochran's farm was next to that of Thomas Garst, Eliza's father (they lived east and south of Mt. Vernon in Waltz Twp., Wabash Co., Indiana), so that's how Oliver Cochran and Eliza Garst would have met. Oliver and Eliza "Caughran" were living with Henry (75) and Mary E. (42) in the 1880 census for Richland Twp., Grant Co., Indiana (which is next to Waltz Twp., Wabash Co.), along with Oliver's two half-brothers and two half-sisters from this second marriage. Thomas Garst was a witness to Henry Cochran's will, dated 6 Jan 1882, recorded 5 May 1886.
