Married first to James Francis Gaines, 1885. Divorced in 1900, then married James W. Cochran. In 1919 she and Jim Cochran were asked to raise Donald Lee Paul, the son of Ara Greene Paul, as his mother had died when he was only three and a half weeks old. Theodocia's daughter-in-law Rosa Paul Gaines was Donald's aunt. I do not know if he was formally adopted, but Donald later changed his name to Cochran.
She was the mother of William Henry Gaines, Willis Almerine Gaines, Walter Lee Gaines, and Ethel Virginia Gaines Phelps.
