Was not able to get any more information from my contact.

I have had good luck going to the Main Public Library In the area where my family lived. They have usually have copies of the local newspapers on microfilm that you can look at. Perhaps you could find a follow-up article about the shooting and also more information about your gr grandfather and for Pleasant.

Hi Again, Just one more thought. I cannot find a Death Record for Cocke although I have looked using different spellings and death dates. On the 1910 Census his wife says she is a Widow.

Please let me know if you find any further info.

Hi, I did not realize that Pleasant shot/killed someone. I just reviewed all Ancestry matches for Pleasant and found someone who knew about his arrest. I just sent them a message.

Although I do not know if this is a possible reason but the 1900 Census shows Pleasant was a Justice of the Peace. Perhaps, and this is only a guess, he was was protecting himself from someone who had been in his Courtroom.

I am not trying to defend Pleasant. I am just offering a possible reason. I will let you know if I learn anything more.

Yes I can help you. I grew up less than two miles from the church and cemetery. All four grandparents are at the cemetery as well as several cousins, two Aunts and my Dad. If you tell me where you are traveling from I can give you directions and the address. Feel free to email me. Address is on my member page.
