Author: I. Haughton
The full title of this work explains more of what this book is about "Chronicles of the Cochrans, Being a Series of Historical Events and Narratives in Which Members of this Family Have Played a Prominent Part".
Written by Ida Cochran Haughton in 1915, as the title implies, this is a history of an important Scottish family and of its members who settled in the American colonies and who became part of the United States and its history.
It begins with an account of the Scottish Cochranes, the House of Dundonald, and the role of the Cochranes in such events as the Rye House Plot, the role of Grizel Cochrane, the Earls of Dundonald, and finally the settlement of Cochranes in Ireland and then on into the colonies. New England was their first destination, but then Pennsylvania and further west attracted them in hopes of a better life and more land. Many settled in what then was western Virginia, now West Virginia. Throughout the late 18th and the entire 19th century they were part of the history of this region of the United States. There is a full genealogical and historical account of their lineage. Of interest as well is an account of the McCord family which settled in this region.
