Family History

Civil War soldier: Private, Company K, 9th Indiana Infantry. He came to Washington State shortly after statehood, and established himself in Seattle as a sign painter. He was a member of Miller Post 31 (GAR). He did not receive pension until the last year of his life, and then as the result of a special act award. His burial location has not been identified.


The cemetery office says they have no record of him despite what his death certificate and one obituary saying he is buried here.

His father John P Cochran's memorial is 189803526. It can not be added right now because of bad birth year information.

One of the Veteran Payment Cards is to George Joerndt. He is the husband of Jess and Jessie's daughter Florella Kelso Cochran.


Buried at Lake View Cemetery Seattle
