      Karen E. Herrera:
      Donna Forney Clark:
      James C. Cockerill (1846-1921) immigrated into Sarpy, NE, USA in 1871. He was followed by three brothers in 1872: George Cockerill (b. 1852); William Cockerill (b. 1844); & John "Joseph" Cockerill (1842-1918) & Catherine Elizabeth Hunt Cockerill (1849-1930) & their infant son Joseph James Cockerill (1871-1955). Karen E. Herrera clarified the following info: With them would have been the 4 year old daughter of John "Joseph" Cockerill, (1842-1918), and Elizabeth Fry Cockerill (about 1847- about 1867). This daughter was Elizabeth Ann [Elizabeth Ann "Anna" Cockerill, 1867-1925].

      Source:
      Karen E. Herrera:
      Donna Forney Clark:
      In the reference that follows this one, I couldn't place the child [age 4 in 1872] who is listed as either a child of John "Joseph" Cockerill (1842-1918) or of James C. Cockerill (1846-1921). Karen E. Herrera cleared up this mystery: "If you look at the actual record [that is mentioned below], it lists a 4 year old child with Catherine Elizabeth Hunt Cockerill (1849-1930] with the name Jos by it. Since the name or sex of the child is not listed, I think Jos refers to the father [John "Joseph" Cockerill, 1842-1918]. I think the child is Elizabeth Ann [Elizabeth Ann "Anna" Cockerill, 1867-1925]. She would have been 4 years old at the time. Also listed is an infant with Joseph that also says Jos beside the infant. I think Jos again refers to the father's name [John "Joseph" Cockerill, 1842-1918] and that the infant is of course Joseph James Cockerill (1871-1955)."
