Willie Ella Sargent was born in Kentucky. She was the daughter of William W. Sargent (Virginia) and Minerva Henderson (North Carolina).
(Many census forms have the last name spelled, "Sergeant" and other spellings through the years).
The family moved to Independence, Kansas during Willie's teens and finally to Kansas City where Willie met and married Robert Burr Cochrane, (son of William Gill Cochrane of New Hampshire and Annette Burr. Robert was born in Illinois).
They had two daughters: Jeanette Delphine Cochrane and Willie S. Cochrane. Their mother died shortly after daughter Willie's birth and just before the census taker appeared at their home in 1900. Baby Willie died within 9 months and after celebrating one Christmas with the family. Della Cochrane Lamb was her Auntie so she was well loved during her short life.
