Garrick COBURN was born about 1800 in Anson Co. NC.277 Guessing that one of the males was born in 1800 based on two males under 10 in 1800 and only one 10-16 in 1810. However, one of the males could have died or been miscounted, so this is pure guess. I find no record of Garrick's marriage in Lauderdale Co., indicating he may have married before they moved there about 1818. That would indicate he might have been born before 1800. He died between 27 Nov 1823 and 31 Dec 1823 in Lauderdale Co. AL.11 Parents: Headly COBURN and UNKNOWN (WIFE OF COBURN).

Spouse: Polly (COBURN). Garrick COBURN and Polly (COBURN) were married.11


George COBURN. George, like William, was not listed in the Martin Co. census of 1800. Parents: George COBURN and Suffiah (COBURN).


George COBURN was born before 1727.260 He appeared in the census in 1787 in Martin Co. NC.278 George Cockburn is listed on an undesignated list, along with Daniel, Ezekiel, Abner, Francis, Griffin, John, and John Cockburn Sr. George is listed with 0 males 21-60, 4 males under 16 or over 60, 5 females, and 2 slaves 12-50. With Abner and Griffin listed separately, George should be listed with 6 males including himself. He is listed with 4 males under 21 or over 60, and 5 females (which would include all his daughters and his wife). The George Cockburn listed in another district may be the son of this George or the son of the other. While George who leaves a will in 1798 is not a perfect match for this George, he is closer than to George Cockburn Jr. He signed a will on 24 Dec 1798 in Martin Co. NC.279 He died after 24 Dec 1798 in Martin Co. NC.279 His will lists wife Suffiah Coburn, children Frederich, Andrew, George, Sarah, Abner, Griffin, Marey Brown, Winifred Wilkenson, Isaac, William, Ann Price; negroes named Turners, Peters, and Maris and the increase of said negroes to wit of Aney and the said negro girl named Rose.

Harmon COBURN was born about 1800 in Anson Co. NC. In 1800, Elijah was listed with no children, but in 1810 he had one male 10-16. There are marriage records for three males in Lauderdale Co. that are likely to be these children. Since Harmon marries earliest (1822), I am guessing he is the oldest. Clearly not to be used as fact. Parents: Elijah COBURN and Jane T. HARRINGTON.

Spouse: Rachel PRINCE. Harmon COBURN and Rachel PRINCE were married on 5 Apr 1822 in Lauderdale Co. AL.97


Headley COBURN was born on 10 Apr 1830.229 He died on 30 Sep 1873.229 Parents: Kenneth (Canny) COBURN and Lucinda CANTRELL.


Headly COBURN258,280 was born between 1765 and 1774 in Martin Co. NC. Assuming he was born in Martin Co. He was 26-45 in 1800, which would make him born 1755 to 1774. In 1810 he was stil 26-45, making him born 1765-1774. He appeared in the census between 1800 and 1810 in Anson Co.

Headley was listed as 26-45 with 2 males and 2 females under 10, one female 26-45 and 2 slaves.

NC.286 Headley Coburn was listed as an adjacent property owner on a deed from Richard Lee to Joseph Newsome, but he also already owned land in Alabama. He appeared in the census in 1820. Hedley and Elijah Coburn were not listed in the Anson Co. NC 1820 census. The only Coburns or Cockburns listed in NC in 1820 were Aziah Coborn in Mecklinburg and James Cobren in Anson Co. There is no surviving Lauderdale census for 1820. He died between 24 Jan 1824 and 27 Dec 1824 in Lauderdale Co. AL.277 His will was signed Jan. 9, 1824, and probated Dec. 27, 1824. There was a Daniel HEDLEY in the Flatswamp area by Dec. 1762. Daniel Headly Tyrrell Co. sold 209 acres on south side of Platt Swamp to to George Cotten of same [Deed Book 4, Pt. One, 324-(426)].

He was still a minor when his slaves were hired out Feb. 26, 1830. Parents: Headly COBURN and UNKNOWN (WIFE OF COBURN).

Kenneth was listed as executor of his father's estate, so must have been an adult when the will was signed Jan 9, 1824, but he was likely one of the males under 10 in the 1810 census. He died on 24 Jan 1842 in Florence AL.229,289 Alabama Records have the date as Jan 24, 1890; Must be a mistake, since according to the bible records and Lucinda's subsequent marriage, he died in 1842.

Lydia Elizabeth COBURN290,291 was born on 23 Apr 1766.292 If she were truly 91 on 1 Sept 1855, she would have been born 1764 or 1765, not 1766 as stated in the Monroe Enquirer. On her April 1849 deposition, she stated she was 84 years old, which was consistent with her being 91 in Sept 1855. She owned Gave her interest in husband's estate on 6 Aug 1849 in Union Co.

Spouse: .


Winnifred COBURN was born in 1794 in NC.281 Winny Polk is listed first in her father's will (or at least in the abstract) so I am guessing that she was the eldest daughter and probably one of the two females under 10 in the 1800 census. The 1850 census verifies this as Winney Polk (Hardin Co.) is 56. Parents: Headly COBURN and UNKNOWN (WIFE OF COBURN).

Spouse: Shelby POLK. Shelby POLK and Winnifred COBURN were married before 9 Jan 1824.277,296,301 Winnifred Polk was listed in her father's will. Children were: William POLK, Shelly POLK, Elizabeth POLK.

George COCKBURN was born before 1700. George Cockburn was listed as over 60 on the same page as Francis Cockburn and others in the 1787 census - but which George is not clear. He was living before 1742/43 in Bertie Co. NC.303 In the Tyrrell Co. deed to George Cockburn in 1742/3, George is identified as being of Bertee Co. He owned bought in 1742/43 in Tyrell Co. NC.303 A George Cockburn of Bertee Co. NC bought 299 acres from Robert Anderson of Tyrrell joining Samuel Taylor. Witnesses were Francis Hobson and John Anderson. It was probated or registered in Jun court of 1744. Another deed on pg 249 from Robert Anderson planter of Tyrrell Co. to George Cockburn planter of same is dated 3 Sep 1744. It too is for 299 acres which had been a patent to said Anderson 20 Nov 1739, on north side of Flat Swamp. He signed a will on 30 Jan 1779 in Martin Co. NC.304 George Cockburn's will lists wife Elizabeth, dau Christian McLien, dau Mary Eavan, son George, dau Elizabeth Anderson, dau Ann Anderson, son John Cockburn (land & plantation where he lives on N side of the Spring branch and all my land in the North side of the Flat Swamp), son Francis Cockburn (my dwelling plantation where I now live and the lands there unto belonging saving which I lent to my wife and at the end of my wifes widowhood the part I lent unto her..all the land from Thomas Smith to the Spring Br and land in South side of the Flat Swamp to Isaac Mays line)

He was living in 1779 in Martin Co. NC.262 In the 1779 tax list of Martin Co., George Cockburn 2nd and George Cockburn Sr. are both listed in District 4. George Cockburn 2nd is listed between John Cockburn and Andrew Cockburn. Andrew Cockburn is the son of the George Cockburn who dies in 1799.

George Cockburn Senr. is listed between Stapleton Bonner and John Brewer, followed by John Joyce and Francis Cockburn.

Since both George Cockburns lived in the same area and apparently had multiple property tracts, it is probably not possible to differentiate between them through these lists. Whether one is the father of the other is not clear at this time.

He was living in 1784 in Martin Co. NC. In a deed on 21 Nov. 1784, George Cockburn Jr. gave his son John a tract lof land standing in the Spring Branch beginning his own line between John and his brother Francis. In another deed, he gave his son Francis a tract of land beginning on the north side of Flat Swamp, formerly Samuel Taylor's corner, then along a line between George Cockburn, John Ross, Jr., and Zack Pinkett, to the old Spring Branch, then to Thomas Blount's line to Turkey Meadow Branch, my old line to Zabell Cockburn's plantation to a pine and oak in an old field where his son Francis Cockburn formerly lived, then straight course to first station. He retained the use of both tracts for his and his wife's lifetime. Whether these were tracts that were not covered in the will or a change of mind is unclear to me at this time, but the tracts are all in the same area and have the same general description.

Note that the deeds in 1784 to sons John and Francis were from George Cockburn Jr., indicating that there is another George Cockburn who is older.
He died between 21 Nov 1784 and 29 Apr 1785 in Martin Co. NC.304 I am guessing that George died between Nov. 1784 when he made two deeds (as George Cockburn Jr.) to his sons Francis and John and 29 April 1785, when Elizabeth Cockburn made a will mentioning her deceased husband George, son Francis, executor. Witnesses were Sealah Rogars and Daniel Cockburn.

There are still two George Cockburns in the 1787 tax list, but one of them is living in a different area with different neighbors than the two George's had in the 1779 tax list. I suspect that the second George, who is probably between 21 and 60 and has 2 males under 16, 4 females and 1 slave 12-50 and under 12 or over 50, is the son George mentioned in the 1779 will.

It appears that George Cockburn 2nd (on 1779 tax list) has been replaced by Francis Cockburn in the 1787 census. Francis is now (1787 census) between Zach. Pinkett and Jonas Mayo, who were very close to George 2nd on the earlier list. George Cockburn (probably Sr.) is about 27 places away. He is now next to Isaac Glisson and Thos. Smith. Glisson was almost exactly halfway between the two George's in the 1779 list and Smith was not in the district, so placement is not conclusive. As early as 1742, a George Cockburn (planter of Bertie County) bought land in Tyrell Co. on the North side of Flatt Swamp from Robert Anderson.

In 1753, Robert Anderson sold land on the South side of Flatt Swamp to George Cockburn Jr.

Spouse: Elizabeth UNKNOWN. Children were: Christian COCKBURN, Mary COCKBURN, Elizabeth COCKBURN, Ann COCKBURN, John COCKBURN, Francis (Frank) COBURN.


James COCKBURN. Parents: John COCKBURN and Feraby UNKNOWN.


Jesse COCKBURN.305 A Jesse Coburn applied 12 Jan 1837 in Martin County for a pension. He was 75 and was born in Martin Co. and always lived there. His widow Charlotte applied 22 July 1851 in Martin Co. and was a resident near Hamilton NC. Named children Harriet, Nancy, Lucinda, Mary & Louisa. On 1 Nov. 1855 his daughter Lucinda Coburn aged 37 & Louisa, wife of George. F. Johnson, aged 35, Polly wife of Arthur Whitehurst & Nancy wife of Edward Glasgow all of Martin Co. were only surviving children.

This could be the same Jesse, but that is not proved. Parents: John COCKBURN and Feraby UNKNOWN.


John COCKBURN was born before 1745.260 John's birth is purely speculation. He is listed with two males over 21. If one of them is a son of his and he was at least 21 when the son was born, he would have been born by 1745. He owned Inherited about 1799 in Martin Co. NC. George Cockburn willed his son John the land and plantation whereon he now lives being the land on the north side of the Spring branch and all my land in the North side of the Flat Swamp. He signed a will on 7 Jul 1818 in Anson Co. NC.302,306 Mentions wife Feraby, children John Cockburn, Jesse Cockburn, Betsy Ross, Watts Coburn, Mary Genkins, Martha Thomas, Christian Austin, Delilah Honey, James Cocburn; negro girl Silva, negro boy Arter, negro Ross. Wife and James executors. He died after 7 Jul 1818 in Anson Co. NC.307 Parents: George COCKBURN and Elizabeth UNKNOWN.

Spouse: Feraby UNKNOWN. Children were: John COCKBURN, Jesse COCKBURN, Betsy COCKBURN, Watts COBURN, Mary COCKBURN, Martha COCKBURN, Christian COCKBURN, Delilah COCKBURN, James COCKBURN.


John COCKBURN was born before 1766.302 Guessing his birth on being the eldest child (listed first in will) and two males over 21 being listed in the 1787 census for Martin Co. Parents: John COCKBURN and Feraby UNKNOWN.
