Cochran Brothers
« on: Wednesday 08 November 17 15:22 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am trying to trace the deaths of 2 brothers.
Robert Cochran may have a e on the end  on the 1901 scotland census he was living with his sisters son and family at Milton, Glasgow, he was a Instrumet Maker.
His brother William Cochran found last on 1871 census living at home, he was a Upholsterer. I am unable to find any trace after these dates. Mary

You haven't given details of either birthyear for elimination purposes

Was he married?

Have you checked Scotlands People for deaths?

Who were their parents, where were they born, who was their sister, was she married, what was her married name, when did she marry/die, were either of the brothers mentioned on her marriage/death as witness/informant?

So many things to consider as Carole says for elimination purposes.

The surname Cochran(e) sounds Irish to me...

It may be an idea to consider other variations of the surname as many names can be misconstrued by different accents such as Cocharan, Coccorran or similar  :-\

brother William Cochran on 1871 census at home, he was a Upholsterer.

Where was home & who was 'at home'?

Were either brothers an informant on either parents deaths after 1871 whenever their parents died?

Father David Cochrane & Mother Agnes Buchanan
The last record I have for Robert is the 1901 census is 59 Maitland Street, Glasgow Milton, Lanarkshire, Scotland, his name is Cochrane on that.
The last record for William is 1871 census at the same address. I have got nowhere at Scotlands People, brought 2 marriage certificate for a William, but wrong person, I am at a loss. They are my great grandfathers brothers, have traced the rest of the family. Mary

Did Robert marry ? see him on all other census forms at the same address 59,Maitland Street would that be correct ...There are 2  deaths for a Robert Cochrane on Scotlands People in the Glasgow area 1901/1903 have you tried them ?
