Further information on Edward Cochrane is that he died August 17, 1912 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa
as a result of a tragic accident when he was knocked over and killed by a traction engine.

Very excited to see the memorial information for Edward Fisher Cochrane from South Africa. His date of birth was 1856 in Woolwich, England. It is not known when he immigrated to South Africa.

Edward was the son of David Cochrane who was in the British Royal Artillery and fought in the Crimean War, served in the West Indies and spend 5 years in Canada.

Edward Cochrane was one of the oldest South African commerical travellers. His business experience was gained with the firm of Hansen and Schrader Ltd..

According to his brother David Cochrane from Riverside, California, USA Edward served under General Baden-Powell in the Siege of Mafeking in the Second Boer War and Cecil Rhodes counted him as among his best friends. This information came from a newspaper article in the Riverside Independent Newspaper in May 1903.

Could this information be included on the Memorial

Thank you for transcribing the handful of photos I uploaded - this was my first transcription effort (you were my tester :) and on my end, it seems to have worked as it should :)

Nancy -
Thanks for doing the transcriptions. I was there in July (wrong time - hot in Morocco- in RI now cold. Still working them, big place and I have a weakness for the military, no matter what side. Many were just kids and had no choice.

RE: hibbing
No problem. Not sure when I'll get over there, but will put it on my list of sites to check for. Just thought that maybe your photo files might clarify. Thanks, Nancy. :)

RE: Mary Lynch
In 1970, I was stationed at Fort Leavenworth for my last 9 months in the Army. I was in charge of a 16 person traveling Honor Guard conducting military funerals in Iowa for soldiers who died in Vietnam. The people of Iowa were the most generous and giving people I have ever met. I recall one funeral in Castana where the population was only about 100 people. Same with Alvord. The communities shared the loss with the families and they treated us like family. Difficult duty but softened by the kindness of the people.

This particular spelling doesn't exist in the cemetery records.
However, I have seen the gravestone & it had a different spelling but I need to go back to the cemetery & look for it.

I have added the obituary for Francis Gaskill to his memorial page. He was my husband's great grand uncle. Thank you for providing it.
