General Directions: Coming west from Gattman Ms on highway 278, go south on Wolfe Rd. Take a right on Bartahatchie Road. Then take another right on what I think is Grubb Springs road. Cockerham cemetery will be on the right side of the road.

Here are a few names from the Cockerham Cemetery:

43. Levicy Smith Cockerham and Samuel Peter Cockerham are buried there in a double marker. It was covered with a low brick wall with a wood roof over it of split wood shingles.the brick and roof are gone. Someone has placed markers for them east of the original grave, and some of the markers have been moved from the center of the cemetery to the back/north side and placed in a row with Peter and Levicy's new markers.

Note: Levicy Smith Cockerham was a sister to Hezekiah Smith of Franklin County, Georgia. Three of his sons are buried there. They were William Green Smith, Jessie Martin Smith, and Ezekiah Clark Smith. Peter Cockerham was born 1786 Lunenburg Co., Virginia. I will have to lookup my notes on their death,etc and forward it. Peter and Levicy died the same day and are buried together.

The Cockerham Cemetery is on the Peter and Levicy Cockerham land. He was a brick maker. The brick that surrounded the grave was made at his place. They are all gone. Only a sunken square remains of the grave.

This is not a full list of the burials there. I hope this will help out. I will be glad exchange info.
