George Washington Cochran, 88, father of a Tulsa policeman, nephew of a Confederate general, and a former Deputy U.S. Marshal under "Hanging Judge" Isaac Parker, died early today in a Claremore hospital of a heart ailment. Joe Cochran, a Tulsa traffic officer for many years, said his father lived in Catoosa with another son. Mr. Cochran had served more than 25 years as a peace officer in Indian Territory and in Oklahoma after it entered the Union in 1907. A nephew of Stand Watie, a Confederate general, Mr. Cochran was born Oct. 14, 1866, in Armstrong, Indian Territory. Orphaned at an early age, he was educated at an Indian orphanage at Salina. He was a full-blood Cherokee. He served for many years as a Deputy U.S. Marshal in Indian Territory under Judge Parker and joined in many hunts for territorial badmen, including the infamous Doolin gang. He was an intimate friend of Clem Rogers, father of Will Rogers, and was well known in and around Claremore. Mr. Cochran was a charter member of the Catoosa Masonic Lodge and a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Catoosa Methodist Church. Mr. Cochran is survived by four sons, two daughters, 24 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. The children are: Joe Cochran, 251 E.
