  • Notes 
    • Listed "Lucilla C." in 1900 census.

      Research: Resided in Hamer Twp., Highland Co., Ohio in 1920.

      The Press Gazette, Hillsboro, Ohio, Friday, Dec. 20, 1963

      The writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews states that is is appointed unto men once to die.

      Lestie Bishir Cochran kept her grim appointment with death December 9, 1963. She was born August 13, 1898, the daughter of William S. and Ella Coffman Bishir. Her only brother, Karsner, preceded her in death on September 7, 1948. She was born in East Danville, and moved only as far as the next door from the home of her birth.

      Early in life she confessed her faith in Jesus Christ and was baptised. She has ever since been a member of the congregation of the Union Chapel Church of Christ.

      She was married to Chester Cochran, August 15, 1915, and together they traveled life’s pathway for nearly half a century. To them was born one daughter, Mrs. Hope Tompkins, of Rocky River, Ohio.

      Lestie’s friendly greeting and her helping hand will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her. [4]
