I am trying to find any info on Samuel F Cochran who was born in Iowa 18 Aug 1864 to William Cochran and Mary Jane (Cox) Cochran. They lived in Poweshiek County, mostly in Deep River.
The last entry I find for him in the census is in 1885:
Deep River, Poweshiek, Iowa
Mary J Cochran 54
John 22, farmer
Ephraim F 21, teacher
Samuel F 20
I’ve looked for him in the 1900 federal census to no avail. I do not see anything recorded in the local cemeteries. His parents were buried at Dresden Cemetery, Deep River, Poweshiek, Iowa. Others of his family were buried at Goldenrod Cemetery, Deep River, Poweshiek, Iowa.
As of the 1900 census his mother reports she had 3 children, 2 living. I know that one child did die in early 1900 before the census so am taking it that the other 2 (including Samuel) was still living, but do not see him in any census records. His widowed mother, his living brother and his deceased brothers family were all living in Deep River as of the 1900 census.
Any help appreciated.
