Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more.

Photographers names in note section
If you bothered to read the entire memorial including the note section, you would see the photographers name mentioned there, instead of making STUPID REPEATED REQUESTS

Benjamin F. Cochran
I believe you are talking about two different Benjamin F. Cochran

The marker I had placed in Mt. Nebo (Bloodworth) cemetery is a memorial marker he died in Virginia and and is probably buried there. His father Benjamin Cochran applied for his pay.

The following information was taken from Benjamin F. Cochran's Confederate War Record. Benjamin F. Cochran was born in Talbot Co., Ga. He enlisted in Co. F, 27th Georgia Infantry Regiment, Confederate Army, September 9, 1861 at Griffin, Ga. His father, Benjamin Cochran, applied for his pay December 31, 1862. Thomas R. King and George Knight Justices of the Peace of Taylor County, Ga. attested to his statement. Benjamin Cochran appointed Willis Jinks his true and lawful attorney to collect the pay of his son Benjamin F. Cochran. Benjamin F. Cochran's record stated that he was in Culpepper Hospital, Va. from September, 1861 to December, 1861. He was admitted to Moore Hospital at General Hospital No. 1, Danville, Virginia December 29, 1861. He died at First Georgia Hospital in Richmond, Virginia on the eleventh day of July 1862, leaving neither wife or child.
His Descriptive List and Account of Pay and Clothing gave his age as 22, blue eyes, dark hair, fair complexion and 6 ft. 1 in. tall. Born in Talbot County and occupation was listed as farmer.

Benjamin F. Cochran was brother to my 2nd great-grandmother Caroline Emeline Cochran Bryant. The approximate location of his grave was pointed out to me by my uncle Henry Martin Bryant a grandson of Caroline Emeline Cochran Bryant.
Several members of the family are buried in this plot unmarked. They were proud but poor dirt farmers.

RE: James Bell, 15843149
Sending this on the road so don't have notes. I believe mine Came to that area after emigrating to America from Ireland. He was tied to the Presbyterian church. I had doubts as to why he would die in Va (now WV) and then be buried there unless it was the connection to the church. The wife's name was not correct either.

Jacob Brillhart 1822-1889
I was just up at Dover last Tuesday the 7th when it was nice out looking for my GGG Grandfather Jacob Brillharts grave and my GGG Grandmother, Sarah.
I looked and looked .
I found other Brillharts but not his in Lenharts.

I know they werent in Find A Grave, thats why I went up to Dover. I dont live far, Spring Grove. Do you know where they are buried? I went into the church to ask but no one was there.
thanks, Susan

RE: Wood family
Hi: Thanks so much for replying so quickly. Sorry I didn't get right back, I am fighting off a cold.
Anyway; I did find my Emory Woods age 14, with Matilda Harrison in the 1850 census at Anne A. with a Jas W. Allen age 29. I also have her (Matilda) in the 1860, Annapolis, AA. with Breuer family, but gave no relationship of her to them. 1870 Census has Matilda with the Plummer family again in AA, listed as a housekeeper, so she may not be related to them. I also saw the Civil War record which kind of fits. Emory turns up in Montana in 1864. His tombstone is on Find a Grave, but not acurate. It says Emory Charles Wood, which is a son of Emory. It is a strange story. I am not related to Emory, I do local history here in Boulder, MT. A lot of men deserted and came out west. I can give you his Montana history if interested. I was hoping to find his parents in Maryland. If you wanted to see his tombstone it is at Radersburg, Broadwater Co., MT. You do know that Matilda's maiden name is Wood. But she was married to Jos Harrison in 1816, so if Emory belonged to her and Jos he would have the last name of Harrison. It is a mystery. I find a lot of those in genealogy.
