All I have on the Cochranes is that William was born March 17, 1824 in Ireland, and arrived in Canada in 1844. He was a Methodist farmer. His wife Margaret was born May 20, 1823 in Ireland. In 1901 they were residing in Renfrew Co. Alice Twp. with a niece, Magie Fraser? b.1881 and a son William Cochrane, b. March 29, 1894 in Ontario. There is a scribble on the census form next to the word son that might say adopted, but am not sure.
