I hope this will at least bring you into the present for the Cockes family a little bit.

I am the eldest grandaughter of Zelna Neil Cockes.
Grandaddy was born May, 1907.
He married Elizabeth Jones of Surry 9-25-1938 (at least, I think that's the correct year)...I can check with Uncle Ed.
They had two sons: Thomas Otho Cockes (my Father), born 6-6-1940 and Edward Woolson Cockes, born 9-12-1942.

I can remember Grandaddy singing and playing his trombone during church -- he had a pretty good voice. He passed away in the fall of 1978. Grandmama passed away 3-29-1999.

Daddy married my mother, Illa Marie (goes by Marie) Houser on March 6, 1962 in Bartlesville, OK, and moved back to the Tidewater area shortly thereafter.

Daddy also sang, and played the trumpet, in addition to his photography and art work.
I, Melodie Anne (Cockes) Gleason, was born March 5, 1963 in Newport News, VA.
My sister, Linda Darlene (Cockes) Foster was born May 5, 1965.

Daddy & Momma moved to Caney, KS in 1969, just before the school year began. They divorced in 1972, and Daddy was murdered on February 19, 1975.

I graduated from Caney Valley HS in 1981.
Attended MidAmerica Nazarene College (now MANU), where I met my husband, Gerry Lee Gleason of Eaton Rapids, MI. We were married on 6-17-1983 and have two sons:
William Thomas Gleason 12-20-1984
Stephen Philip Gleason 9-16-1987

Linda has been married three times and has four daughters and one grandaughter**:
Sherrailynn Christanne Cockes 3-29-1984**
Angela Dawn Tickle 1-29-1986
Ulani Danae Cockes (she goes by Bottarini, her father's last name) 5-17-1988
Amelia Rose Bottarini 8-16-1990
**Sherrailynn's daughter: Elizabeth Odette Cockes, 1-19-2001

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me back -- My second cousin, Dwan Cockes and I are trying to trace back the family to beyond the farm at Elberon.
Thank you SO much!
