Grave of Eliza M Rogers Cocke Birth 23 March 1813 in Rogersville, Hawkins, TN ; Death 26 January 1865 in Karnes County, TX; Cocke Family Cemetery, near Wessel's Gin, near Ecleto, Karnes County, TX

As she is my great-great-great grandmother, I would like to see her grave. There are 2 graves with tombstones in the Cocke Family Cemetery: 1 is Eliza Rogers Cocke and 2 is of Margaret Watkins. There are old photos of the 2 tombstones. I do not have directions to the graves, but am trying to find someone, who knows exactly where they are. Ecleto is at the intersection of Farm Road 627 and Dry Ecleto Creek, about six miles southeast of Gillett in northern Karnes County. There is one building left, which I believe had been the post office and general store.

My great-great grandmother, Sarah "Sallie" Amelia Cocke, was a sister of Margaret Ellen Cocke.
