A history of the Cockayne Family was written for the book, History of Marshall County, West Virginia 1984, published by the Marshall County Historical Society. The anonymous author was probably John Bennett Cockayne, according to Naomi Lowe Hupp, who recalls that John submitted information for the 1984 book.

THE COCKAYNE FAMILY

The Cockayne family originated in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, England. The senior branch of the family were lords of the manor of Ashbourne from about 1150 until 1671. A younger branch of the family were ennobled in Rushton Hall, in Northamptonshire. The male line of this branch became extinct in 1810. A grand-nephew of the last Viscount, George E. Adams, was the author of the Complete Peerage. He assumed the surname of Cockayne (spelling it the ancient way as Cokayne) by royal license. His son, Brien Cokayne, was Governor of the Bank of England for several years at the end of World War I and was created Baron Cullen of Ashbourne in 1920. His son, Charles, born in 1912, still holds this title. Another branch of the family were lords of the manor of Cockayne-Hatley in Bedfordshire from the early 1400's until the last representative of the line, Captain Samuel Cockayne of the Royal Navy, died in 1745. [The West Virginia family traces their line to colonial Maryland.] In 1761, Samuel Cockayne married Mary Lowe, whose family owned large tracts of land in Talbot and St. Marys Counties, Maryland. Of their four children, the oldest, William, went to sea at an early age and died, unmarried, of smallpox. The only daughter, Elizabeth, married a gentleman named McKain and moved to Kentucky at an early date. Carter Cockayne, the second son, born in 1764, came to Ohio County, Virginia with his younger brother, Samuel, born in 1768, and died unmarried in about 1850. Samuel, the youngest son, (1768-1854) came to Ohio County, Virginia in 1798 and settled on a 324-acre tract of land owned by Adam Wolford, and located in the southern part of the present town of Glen Dale. Samuel married Sarah Jones about 1791, and has five sons, William, Samuel, Hiram, Bennett, and Vincent Lowe Cockayne, as well as several daughters. He leased the 324-acre tract until 1816, when he purchased it from Wolford, who lived at Louisville, Kentucky. In 1817, he purchased an additional 100 acres to the north of the original tract (all hill land) from James Riggs. In 1839, his son, Bennett, purchased a 115-acre tract north of the original tract from the Tomlinson family. This tract fronted on the Ohio River, and ran from the present site of 10th Street, Glen Dale, to about the southern boundary of the R-Arms Motel, and included a strip of land between Little Grave Creek and the 100 acre tract. Bennett sold this tract to his father in 1840, so that Samuel Cockayne owned 539 acres at the time of his death in 1854. Samuel kept an "ordinary," or hotel at his home, which is located just north of the Glen Dale Drive-In Theater. This was known as the "Andrew Jackson Inn".

The oldest son, William, died in about 1857 [21 Feb 1856]. He was the father of Thomas T. Cockayne, who had a well-known orchestra in Wheeling in the late 1800's. Samuel and Hiram, the next two sons moved to Burlington, Iowa in 1840. Bennett Cockayne (1805-1875) and Vincent Lowe Cockayne (1807-1886) divided the 539-acre tract upon their father's death in 1854. Vincent received 236 acres and the original homestead, which he called "Valley Farm." Bennett received 303 acres to the north, including the 115-acre, the 100-acre tracts, and the 88 acres of the original 324-acre tract. He built his residence in about 1850 and a barn (which stood on the present site of John Marshall High School) at about the same time.

Vincent was the first bank president in Marshall County, serving as president of the Marshall County Bank from 1881 until his death in 1886. He married Louisa Johnson Lynn (1811-1863) in about 1838. By this marriage, he had two sons, William Lynn Cockayne (1839-1871) and John Randolph Cockayne (1843-1864), both of whom died unmarried, as well as a daughter, Alcinda (1841-1927), who married Shepherd McMechen (1827-1874), in 1868. Shepherd inherited the original McMechen homestead from his father, Benjamin McMechen, who died about 1855. The land that Shepherd owned included the present sites of the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corporation and the West Virginia portion of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad yards in Benwood, West Virginia. Their daughter, Mary Lynn McMechen, born in 1869, married Clifford G. Stokes, and lived in Baltimore, Maryland, until her death, without children, in 1931. Vincent remarried in 1864 to Lydia McKee (1825-1907). By this marriage, he had two daughters, Caroline (Mrs. William W. Weightman), (1865-1936), and Emily Vincent (Mrs. William Martin Riggs), (1868-1948), both of whom died childless.

Bennett Cockayne married Sarah Price (1809-1884) in 1826. They had three sons: Alexander Cockayne (1827-1855), who graduated from the law school of the University of Virginia. He taught the first school in Glen Dale, located in the present home of Samuel A. Cockayne, across from John Marshall High School. He married Amelia Carr [Margaret Booth Carr] and had one son, Benjamin Cockayne (1853-1923). Benjamin married Sarah Brockman (1861-1944) and lived in Bellaire and later Tiffin, Ohio, They had one son, Charles Alexander Cockayne (1879-1949), a graduate of Heidelberg College, Tiffin, Ohio. He also attended Yale University, and was a teacher in Technical High School, Springfield, Massachusetts. There were four daughters of Benjamin, the last dying in the 1970s.

Bushrod Washington Cockayne (1829-1830) was the second son of Bennett and Sarah Cockayne. The youngest was Samuel A. J. Cockayne, (1841-1904), as well as six daughters, three of whom were married. Samuel A. J. Cockayne married Hannah Jane Alexander, of West Alexander, Pennsylvania in 1863. She gave the name "Glen Dale Farm" to the property on which they resided, and this is the derivation of the name of the town of Glen Dale. Bennett Cockayne served as postmaster at Moundsville from 1841 until 1849, and kept a general store in what was then Elizabethtown. Upon the death of Sarah Price Cockayne in 1884, Samuel A. J. Cockayne inherited the 303-acre tract. He built the small white house across from the north end of John Marshall High School in which John B. and Lisa Cockayne presently reside. He raised pure-bred, fine-wooled American Merino sheep and took first prize at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876 for an American Merino ram's fleece. He and his wife, who died in 1917, were the parents of five daughters and one son: Ella P. Cockayne, married Dr. Thomas H. Meighen; Sarah P. Cockayne, married to Charles A. Showacre, a Moundsville attorney and bank executive; Gertrude Cockayne, married to Charles C. Schwob, President of the Mercantile Banking & Trust Co. in Moundsville; Dora Cockayne, died unmarried in 1947; Irena Cockayne, married to Craig Shaw, publisher of the Moundsville Echo; and Samuel A. Cockayne (1874-1953), who inherited the homestead and most of the farm upon the death of his mother in 1917. Craig and Irena were the parents of Samuel C. and Alexandra C. Shaw, who currently manage the Moundsville Echo.

Samuel A. Cockayne married Beulah Smith of McMechen in 1919 (1881-1945). She had been an elementary teacher at the Center McMechen School for 18 years prior to her marriage. Samuel was a member of the Washington District Board of Education in the early 1930s and Postmaster of Glen Dale from 1935 to 1950. He was prominent in the Masonic Lodge in Moundsville for many years and a member of the Knights' Templar in Wheeling.

The current generation of the Cockayne family consists of Samuel A. J. Cockayne, born in 1921. He served as a Sergeant in the Signal Corps in the U. S. Army in the Pacific Theater from 1952-1945. He farmed until 1965, when the land east of Wheeling Avenue and west of Little Grave Creek was purchased by Marshall County Board of Education for John Marshall High School. John B. Cockayne, the younger son, born in 1923, served in the Army, Navy and Air Force between 1943 and 1952, being discharged from the Air Force in 1952 as a Staff Sergeant (Finance and Accounting). He was valedictorian of the 1941 graduating class at Moundsville High School. He worked in the U. S. Civil Service from 1953 to 1954 in Texas in the Veterans Administration and in Wheeling as a Claims Representative for the Social Security Administration from 1956 until he retired in 1978. He was a Technical Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force Reserve from 1953 to 1959. While serving in the Air Force in Wiesbaden, Germany, he married Lisa Hofmann of Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany in 1952. The Sans Souci addition of Glen Dale as well as John Marshall High School are on land formerly owned by Samuel and John.

Alexandra Craig Shaw told John that Mary went by the name of Polly and married a man with the last name McGraw. There is also a marriage record for a Mary Cockayne to a man named Alexander Devere.

In the 1860 census, Lydia Cockayne is listed as LILLY. William was deceased and Virginia was living with her mother. Also in the household are Louisa Cockayne, 14, and Thomas T., 22, a machinist. CASSA HENNING, 33, b Va., was also at the location with her children, Jane, 12, Elizabeth, 7, and Alice, 3. It is unknown who Cassa was.

Wheeling Register (Wheeling, WV), March 4, 1886 - COCKAYNE- On Tuesday, March 2, 1886, at the residence of her son-in-law, Wm. H. Robinson, No. 1225 Main street, MRS. LYDIA COCKAYNE, aged 78 years. - Behold I stand at the Gate of the Temple. - Funeral on Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Friends are respectfully invited. Interment at Mt. Wood cemetery.

Some additional information about the family of William and Lydia Cockayne is found in the following Legal Notices, published in February and March 1888, regarding the partitioning of property that Lydia was part owner of at the time of her death. Louisa, Eliza, and Thomas were children of Lydia and William. However, Dowden, a son from William's first marriage, and Virginia, the daughter of Lydia from her first marriage, are also named in these records. So is Rebecca, married name Gibson. It is likely that she was another daughter from Lydia's first marriage. In the 1850 Census, very near William and Lydia, is Rebecca Gibson, 25, b Va., with husband, William, 25, b Pa. They had one son, John, age 2, b Va.

In his excellent research of Van Caldwell, Frank D. Myers at http://lucascountyan.blogspot.com/2008/09/iowaville-roster-van-caldwell.html, states that Van Caldwell of Marshall County, WV was possibly married to "Elizabeth" and/or a "Miss Cockayne," according to information submitted to the LDS.

A letter discovered at the Cockayne Farmhouse in Glen Dale, Marshall County, W. Va., and scanned by volunteer, Ed Grose, was written by Samuel T. Caldwell on behalf of Melissa V.

General Notes: William Cockayne is listed as a private in Company "E" of the 15th Iowa Infantry, according to the regimental book, History of the Fifteenth Regiment, Iowa Veteran Volunteer Infantry; Tyler, Loren S., Keokuk: Publisher: R.B. Ogden & Son, 1887.

At age 20, William J. Cockayne, a resident of Burlington, mustered in 29 Aug 1862 to serve 3 years in Company "E". He mustered out 24 July 1865 at Louisville, Ky.

He is also named in the book as one who sang songs to keep the men's spirits up:
Page 67: [Pertains to postwar, after discharge.]"The commands of Rogers would never inspire them to bravery again; the cheery voice of Wilson to fall in, Company "E" need never more be obeyed; the songs of Cockayne cheer them in home sickness, or the jokes of Grove and Buck......."

And "Bill Cockayne" is also named in a verse of a song sung by the 15th:
"Dave Hornbaker and Bill Cockayne
The Fifteenth will remember,
On that cold Christmas march we made
To Redbone, in December.
They grabbed the chickens from their roosts,
And dressed them in the snow,
And, when they ate them, left but bones,
For Benny Havens, O!"

When the book was written in 1887, William J. Cockayne is listed as a survivor of the war, then living in Burlington, Iowa.

According to newspaper articles, William's postwar life was difficult at times. A war hero, William died of LEPTOMENINGITIS in 1901. [An inflammation of the pia and arachnoid membranes of the brain.]

Burlington Evening Gazette, January 8, 1900 -- During yesterday's fire at the Sunday school scholars amused themselves by poking fun at Dr. W. J. Cocayne, who sells a remedy known as Golden Root compound, and whom the boys have dubbed "Red-water Bill." - Cocayne lost his temper and instead of going into the house and leaving the field to the small boys he made a mistake of attempting to argue the matter with them, making several onslaughts on his tormenters with a buggy whip. The incident created great excitement and while the youngsters were clearly in the wrong, Cocayne could have saved himself considerable annoyance by getting out of sight. The average American small boy is the most irrepressible animal on earth, whether he has just escaped from a Sunday school or whether he never saw the inside of a church and discretion is always better than valor when a mob of them commence their "kidding" tactics.

Burlington Evening Gazette, March 22, 1901-- TO MT. PLEASANT -- "Doctor J. W. [W. J.] Cocayne is Adjudged Insane This Morning - And Sent to Hospital - Well Known Burlington Character and Vendor of Patent Medicine. -- The insane commissioners this morning sent "Dr." J. W. Cocayne to the Mt. Pleasant hospital, thus removing from Burlington another of its long list of characters. - The eccentricities of the "doctor" have been strongly noticeable for several years past but his condition was not regarded as critical. Last evening he brought a steak into Riordan's restaurant and had it fried, ordering the other accessories of a square meal. When he finished his repast he complacently wiped his mouth and started to leave the room. Jim Riordan reminded him that he had forgotten to settle, but the "doctor" laughed him to scorn. A wordy altercation occurred, which ended in the arrest of the "doctor" by Officer Young. The prisoner after being placed in a cell at the police station talked so incoherently as to leave not the slightest doubt of his deranged mental condition and this morning it only took the insane commission a few minutes to dispose of his case. - When questioned as to the circumstances of last night's trouble Cockayne related lucidly enough that he had taken either a porterhouse steak or a round house steak into the chop house to have it fried and after eating a hearty meal the restaurant keeper had the audacity to ask him to pay for it. He indignantly refused, there was a fight and the restaurant man lost his life. Cocayne was firm in his belief that he had killed Riordan, but said he did it in self-defense. Sheriff Muenzenmeyer took the unfortunate man to Mt. Pleasant on No. 9. this morning. - Cocayne has resided in Burlington for a long term of years and gained his title of "doctor" through the manufacture and sale of a harmless but effective nostrum called "Golden Root Compound." The medicine could be applied outwardly or taken inwardly with the equal effectiveness and the heads of many Burlington households considered it a necessary adjunct to the family medicine chest. At one time Cocayne was fairly well-to-do and owned some property, but domestic difficulties impoverished him and it is thought, contributed largely to the overthrow of his reason. Of late years the "doctor" has been the persistent butt of ridicule of the small boy of the city, who never lost an opportunity of singing out when the "doctor" hove into view, "Red Water Bill." This petty persecution, no doubt, was another factor in the breaking down of his mental faculties and may have the effect of teaching the fresh youngsters of the city a lesson. It certainly is not pleasant for them to consider that they aided in driving a man to a mad house. - Cocayne is a member of Matthias Post G.A.R., and it was his delight on all occasions when the post turned out, to carry the old battle-scarred flag. If denied this honor he was quite emphatic in demanding an explanation. - Cocayne's case is a sad one. He was an upright, conscientious citizen and brave soldier and it is hoped that he will return to Burlington entirely cured of this malady.

Des Moines Capital, Mar 25, 1901 -- INSANE MAN SUICIDES* -- William Cocayne Hangs Himself in His Cell at Mt. Pleasant - Special to the Capital.-- Burlington, March 25. - William Cocayne, who was sent to Mt. Pleasant hospital for the insane last week, was found by his attendant Saturday [Mar 23] hanging lifeless from the roof of his cell. Cocayne was a well known character in this city, where he had lived for years. He was a veteran of the civil war and won honorable mention for himself during his service. During his residence here, Cocayne was a local vender of patent medicines, and was often made the butt of ridicule by the boys of the streets. It is believed that the final breakdown of his mind was due in large part to the acts of these tormentors. His remains will be brought here for burial.

Wheeling Register, Feb 20, 1878
THE COCKAYNE WILL CASE still continues to attract the attention of the Court, and a large number of citizens who daily repair to the court room to listen to the case as it progresses. As this case is an interesting one from the amount of property involved in it, and as the parties to it are known to a large number of your readers, I send the following short history of the case, thinking probably it will not prove entirely without interest to some of them: The will bears date February 15th, 1872, and was admitted to probate by the Clerk of the County Court on the 28th day of August, 1875, three and one-half years after the making thereof. It gives to Elizabeth Keyser, daughter of the testator, in addition to what she already received, fifteen hundred dollars, but does not release her husband from the payment of a note held against him by the testator. To his daughter Mary J. Chambers, the house and half lot of ground owned by the testator in Bellaire, Ohio, and nine hundred dollars. To his grandson Benjamin F. Cockayne, one thousand dollars to be paid to him upon his arriving at the age of 21 years, with interest from one year after the death of the testator. The interest to be paid to him annually. The will also contains the request that this wife of the testator give to Sarah and Martha Ellen, such portions of the household goods, and at such times as she may think proper. And to his wife, Sarah, during her lifetime, all his real estate, except the house and lot above mentioned, which consists of two hundred and ninety-seven acres of land, one hundred and fifteen acres of which is river bottom land, and very valuable, the balance is hill land. This land lies in what is known as "Gravel Botttom," about two and one half miles above town, and fronts on the Ohio river. At the death of Mrs. Cockayne, the will provides that the land shall descend in fee simple to Samuel A. Cockayne, son of the testator, who is appointed sole executor of the will. The instrument was written by Hon. James D. Morris, who, together with Col. V. L. Cockayne, brother of the testator, are the attesting witnesses thereto. Mr. Cockayne had an attack of paralysis on the 25th day of December, 1871, (from which, however, he recovered sufficiently to attend to business, so the propounder of the will claims,) and died about the middle of August, 1875. The time intervening between the first attack of the malady and the signing and acknowledging of the will was about fifty days. The contestants in the present suit ask that the will be set aside on the grounds that, owing to the mental condition of the testator at the time of making the same, he was incapable of properly disposing of his property. Proceedings in the Circuit Court were brought to an abrupt pause one day last week by one of the attorneys, for the defendant demanding of his honor, the judge, that the case be declared out of court on the ground that the suit was improperly instituted against Samuel A. Cockayne and not against that gentleman, as executor of the will of Bennett Cockayne, deceased. This announcement was a perfect surprise to every one in the court room, and had about as startling an effect as the bursting of a twenty pound shell in their midst would have produced. His Honor held that the point was well taken, discharged the jury, and was about to dismiss the case, when an arrangement was agreed upon by the contestants and their attorneys by which the case was proceeded with.

Owing to the illness of one of the jurors (Mr. Thompson), the case, by agreement, is being tried to eleven jurors.

Wheeling Register, March 4, 1878
The jury in the Cockayne will case came into court on Saturday, and at 11:20 A.M. submitted a verdict as follow:

"We the Jury find that the paper writing, dated February 15, 1872, in the issue joined, it is the true last will and testament of Bennett Cockayne, deceased.

Wm. M. Treadway, Foreman.

The counsel for the defendants moved for new trial. Decision upon motion defered until term in course, which commences on the 4th Monday to the present month.

Thus endeth the first chapter inthe above legal drama at a cost to the county of $475.

The unanimous opinion of all with whom I conversed upon the subject, who had listened to the testimony and arguments in the case is that, the verdict is "strictly in accordance with the law and testimony."

VINCENT L. COCKAYNE

Vincent L. Cockayne, deceased, born in Ohio county, Va., in 1807, died at his home near Moundsville, September 21,1886, was one of the prominent business men of the county. Samuel Cockayne, his father, was one of the first comers to this region from Maryland, engaged in farming and kept a hotel where his son afterward resided. The father died in 1856, leaving five sons, William, Samuel, Hiram, Bennett and Vincent. Vincent L. Cockayne devoted his life to farming, at which he was highly successful, and he became known as one of the enterprising and prosperous men of the region. He held an important position in relation to the business of the community, was the first president of the Ohio Valley Iron works, and at his death was one of the directors and president of the Marshall County bank. He was generally liberal with his means in promoting public enterprises. In 1838, Mr. Cockayne was married to Louisa J. Lynn, near Brownsville, Penn., and by this union had three children. The eldest, William L., died of consumption at the age of thirty-two; Alcinda C., married Shepherd McMechen, who died in 1874; and John R., who died in 1864. The mother of these children died in 1862, and in 1864, Mr. Cockayne was united to Lydia, daughter of Joseph and Margaret McKee of Ohio county. By this marriage were born two daughters, Caroline A. and Emily V., who are both graduates of the Wheeling Female college. Mrs. Cockayne and daughter are members of the Episcopal church. Joseph McKee, father of Mrs. Cockayne, was a farmer of Pennsylvania, was married in Maryland, and soon afterward moved to Ohio county, where he died in 1841, his wife surviving until 1868, when she died at the age of seventy-six years. Their five children were: Caroline M., married Jonathan E. Meredith, of Kittanning, Penn., a distinguished citizen, surveyor as early as 1835, member of the state senate for two years, a prothonotary for many years, who was born in 1812 and died in 1889; Sarah E., widow of Dr. G. W. Moore; Robert H., who went to sea and was lost; and Samuel A., captain of the Pittsburgh Blues, killed before Petersburg, in 1864.

June 1, 1848, he was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Kayne, of Marshall county, Va., by whom he has two children, Florence V. and Lucy. His wife dying, he was married the second time, January, 1857, to Miss Alvira Early, of Kanawha county, Va., a sister of Gen. Early.

T. T. COCKAYNE

He Died Very Suddenly at the County Infirmary, Last Evening

Poor "Tommy" Cockayne is dead.

The end came last night about eleven o'clock, at the County Infirmary, where he has been living for a year or so past.

Heart trouble must have been the cause, perhaps a result of the paralytic stroke from which he suffered for the past sixteen or eighteen months, and which followed in the wake of the accident about two years ago, by which he sustained a fracture of one of his arms. This accident was the beginning of the end for "Tommy," and from that time he went steadily down the steep doclivity which has the poor house at the bottom of it. Almost forgotten in a city where his name was once a household word; known to few, where once he was known to all; old, a cripple, and penniless, "Tommy's" death last night at the institution named will doubtless awaken more of reminiscence than of regret - more of surprise than of sorrow.

Time was when T. T.Cockayne was the best known man in Wheeling, and one of the most popular. All circles of society were open to him and his violin, and his orchestra, in the decade between 1850 and 1860, and for years thereafter as well, was part and parcel of almost every ball, hop or dance given, not only in this city, but throughout the surrounding country, on both sides of the river. Those were the days when Union and Melodian Halls were the resorts of the disciples of Terpsichore, and few were the functions there given that "T. T. Cockayne's Cotillion Band" was absent from. The givers of private parties claimed "Tommy" for weeks ahead, and scores of joyous wedding parties have tripped over the carpet to the music of this same orchestra, while no river excursion was completed without this organization of musicians. All during the war, and for many years thereafter, this popularity was kept up, but with the growth of the city and the advent of other musicians, "Tommy's" music was gradually crowded out. Still, so firm was his hold upon the public that he long continued to play for all manner of social events, and it was only a few years ago that he stepped aside completely from the gay world over which he so long "called figures" and wielded the bow. "Tommy" was not a musician, in the sense that he played from notes. That was a branch of the divine art which he never acquired. His music was learned by main strength and "ear," but it was well learned, nevertheless, and in his prime his band was equal to every call made upon it.

In his later days "Tommy" took to the river, for which he always had a weak spot in his heart, and in various capacities he went up and down the Ohio, between Pittsburg and Cincinnati, his merry laugh and his inevitable violin being everywhere welcome. Few river men but know him like a brother, and few there are who will not recall him with a sigh. Jovial to a fault, upon occasions; peculiar to a most unusual degree, he had the faculty of making and holding friends in all walks of life, and his ear splitting laugh and his "All is well," will be widely recalled, and by none more generally than by the older newspaper men of this city.

The deceased was about the Infirmary yesterday, and seemed no worse physically than for a long time past, but late last night he seemed to be particularly ill, and about eleven o'clock he suddenly dropped upon the floor, and when those present ran to his aid, he was dead. The remains will likely be taken charge of by relatives down the river.

CHOICE WHEAT - Mr. Samuel A. Cockayne, a farmer residing near this place, is the producer of a kind of wheat which is very valuable and has been obtained under rather unusual circumstances. Several years ago Mr. Cockayne observed growing in his field scattering stalks of wheat which were much taller and heavier grain than the other. Believing that this to be a better quality of wheat than that which he was growing, he went through his field and gathered all the stalks bearing the above description, and sowed the grain the following season. By this means he has increased his seed and raised a sufficient quantity to test its merit, and it is now known among our farmers as the "Cockayne wheat." So far this wheat has only been sold as seed wheat and has brought a high price whereever its heavy yield is known. Its yield this year from Mr. Cockayne's land was forty bushels to the acre.

CHARLES CLEMENT SCHWOB

Charles Clement Schwob, 87, Moundsville banker and retired industrialist, died at his home at
320 Seventh street, at 8 o'clock Sunday evening.

Mr. Schwob was endowed with longevity, and even at 80 did not have the gray hairs nor the
debility of many men of 60 and less. In fact, age didn't really tell on him till two years ago he
broke his leg in a fall down the cellar steps, and it was more than a year before he could walk
without a cane again. Then about two months ago he came down the illness that led to the end.

He was born in Miltonsburg, Monroe county, Ohio, son of John Adam and Wilhelmina Schuetz
Schwob.

The family moved to Moundsville Aug. 14, 1879, just before the Moundsville "boom", when the
Fostoria Glass, the Echo and others came here.

The Schwob family was in woodworking business, and it was in the early days a logical step
from making caskets to conducting funerals. That was the time when professional standards
were being established in the undertaking business, and C. C. Schwob, his brother J. W. Schwob,
and his brother-in-law, E. C. Grisell, were among the very first in West Virginia to take the state
board examination and be licensed as professional funeral directors. Their establishment at that
time was on Thirteenth street later moving to the substantial brick building which the elder Mr.
Grisell built at 916 Lafayette avenue.

The Grisell side of the family has carried on the funeral service to the present day, while the
Schwob side of the family went into the manufacture of grain cradles.

MANUFACTURING

That is an item that many people today have never seen. Grain cradles were like a farmer's
scythe with sharp blade and also a row of light wood fingers to catch the shocks of grain while
still upright. Today, of course, farmers either use machinery for gathering their grain or cannot
afford the labor of cutting it by hand.

The J. A. Schwob Grain Cradle factory was in the building running south from Thirteenth street,
now used by Marx as a warehouse. It used to have a railroad siding up to its back doors.
Charles Schwob has made many trips into West Virginia forest lands and other places to buy the
special wood required, as well as traveling through the states taking orders.

The Schwobs were briefly in the furniture business, where the Chamber of Commerce building
now is on Seventh Street.

General Notes: Found Dead in Cornfield: Tuesday morning, S.R. Cockayne, one of our well known and highly respected citizens, went to J.W. Andersons' field, a mile east of town to shuck corn. He was using Mr. Anderson's team and husking standing corn while Mr. Anderson was in another part of the field husking shock corn, and owing to a rise in the ground between the two men, they could not see each other. At noon, Mr. Anderson did not see Mr. Cockayne, but supposed he had gone to dinner, so he came to town for his noon-time meal. After dinner he returned to the field and worked until toward evening when he went to the crib expecting to find Mr. Cockayne unloading his last load for the day, but he was not there and after waiting for awhile Mr. Anderson started to look for Mr. Cockayne and in doing so soon found the team wandering around alone with about twenty bushel of corn and Mr. Cockayne's coat in the wagon. This alarmed Mr. Anderson greatly, and after looking around for Mr. Cockayne and not finding him, Mr. Anderson drove to town and raised the alarm. In a short time, a number of men hurried toward the field, many of them carrying lanterns. The body was found by Joe Harrison and Will Ringland, laying between two rows with his mitten and husking peg in one hand, showing Mr. Cockayne had dropped dead without a struggle and had probably lain there from 10 o'clock until after dark that evening. S.R. Cockayne was born near Wheeling, Virginia, May 1, 1840, and moved with his parents to a home near Burlington, IA. when he was but three years old, so that almost all of his life has been spent in Iowa. In 1861, he was married to Miss Mary Ann Mmintling, who survives him. To this union were born eight children, three died in infancy, and three, Lizzie, Carrie, and Grace, after they had grown to womanhood. The mother and two sons, Arthur of Oskaloosa, and Clarence of this city, a Granddaughter, Miss Leo Jacobs, and trained nurse, now in Colorado, and a brother, A.B. Cockayne, living east of this town, are the only survivors. In 1875, the family moved to Yarmouth and resided there until eighteen years ago last May when they moved to our city and since that time have been among our best citizens. We became acquainted with Mr. Cockayne long years ago and have ever found him a true Christian gentleman. He was kind hearted, public spirited, a lover of his home, his church, and his friends. His life's lamp thus suddenly ceasing to burn has cast a deep gloom over those who knew him best. The funeral will be held this Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Presbyterian Church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. J.L. Dool. -- Winfield Beacon, 01 Dec 1910.

General Notes: Sad and sudden was the death of Miss Ida M. Cockayne, a popular young Burlington lady, which occurred last evening in a runaway four miles west of town. Miss Cockayne is a dressmaker employed by Mrs. Sheagren, and yesterday received word that there was work for her at the home of William Magel, on the Agency Road. The latter's son, Albert, came for the young lady at her home, No. 1317 Agency Avenue, about 7:30 last evening, and together they started for the Magel home in an open-seated buggy, drawn by two family horses. On the Agency Road, just as they were nearing their destination, the horses were frightened by wood which had fallen on the road and, becoming unmanageable, ran away, the united efforts of both occupants being unable to restrain them. After about a hundred yards the frenzied animals turned sharply across the road in front of the Philcosky place and started up the embankment, throwing both Miss Cockayne and Mr Magel from the vehicle. Miss Cockayne fell head foremost, her neck evidently having been broken. She died almost instantly, without uttering a word. Young Magel escaped with but a few bruises and cuts and will be able to be out in a few days. Coroner Unterkircher was telephoned and, accompanied by the dead girl's mother and brother, drove to the scene of the accident. Mrs. Cockayne had been somewhat prepared for a shock, but broke down completely on seeing her daughter. The body was removed to the city. The accident is a particularly sad and distressing one. Miss Cockayne is widely known and popular in Burlington, and the news of her sudden and tragic end will cause genuine regret among a large circle of friends. She was but twenty-one years old, and a member of St. Patrick's Church. She leaves a widowed mother and two brothers, one residing in Omaha. Burlington Hawkeye, 04 Jan 1900

General Notes: Young Eddie Cockayne, son of W.S. Cockayne, was fatally injured Sunday by the accidental discharge of a target rifle in the hands of some playmates. The boys were engaged in firing at a target in the rear of the Corkery home, 1204 Patterson Street. Something got out of order with the rifle, and in the effort to fix the problem, the weapon discharged, the bullet striking young Cockayne on the chin and glancing thence downward to the throat, cutting both the windpipe and the jugular vein. The young companions were horrorstruck and helpless, but they called for assistance and messengers were sent off in hast for surgical aid. Meantime the flow of blood could not be staunched, the windpipe filled up, and the boy strangled to death in ten minutes. The occurance has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood. The funeral services will be held at St. Patrick's at 6:30 this morning and the remains will be taken to Dodgeville for burial. Burlington Hawkeye, 18 July 1893.

Biographical Review of Henry County, Iowa,
Chicago: Hobart Publishing Company, 1906; pages 42-44.
ARTUS B. COCKAYNE is the owner of one hundred and sixty acres of land on section 11, Scott township, and in the work of improvement and development here he has shown thorough familiarity with modern methods of farming, while his labors have been characterized by a practical spirit that produces results. He is a native son of Des Moines county, Iowa, born on the 15th of May, 1859, and he was the twelfth in order of birth in a family of thirteen children, seven sons and six daughters, who were born unto Hiram and Elizabeth (Riggs) Cockayne. His parents were natives of Marshall county, Virginia, and the mother was a daughter of John Riggs of the Old Dominion.

Leaving the south they made their way westward to Iowa, traveling by team to a town on the Ohio river, where they embarked on a steamer, proceeding down that stream and up the Mississippi river to Burlington. They then continued their journey to Flint River township, Des Moines county, which was then a pioneer district, in which the work of development and improvement had scarcely been begun. Mr. Cockayne cast in his lot with the frontier settlers and entered from the government five hundred acres of land, on which he built a log house. This was previous to 1840 and few indeed were the settlements that had been made at that time in eastern Iowa. Of this claim there were about seventy-five acres that could be cultivated at the time of the purchase but he at once began to further clear and develop the farm and in course of time placed many acres under the plow. He also sold a portion of the land previous to clearing it. His time and energies throughout his remaining days were devoted to farm work there and he resided upon the old homestead until his death, which occurred August 18, 1869.

His wife continued upon the old homestead for about sixteen years longer and then went to Cass county, Iowa, to live with her son, J. H. Cockayne, with whom she resided for about twenty years. She then became a member of the family of Artus B. Cockayne, living with him for a short time in Des Moines county, after which she went to the home of her daughter, Mrs. George Riffel in the same county and there died in December, 1889, at an advanced age.

Artus B. Cockayne lived with his mother until twenty-six years of age and acquired his education in the public schools of Flint River township. When not occupied with his text-books his attention was devoted to the labors of the farm and when he left home in 1885 he began farming on his own account. He first rented land in Washington township, where he lived for sixteen years and his savings during that period enabled him, on the 19th of February, 1891, to purchase one hundred and sixty acres of land on section 11, Scott township, Henry county. He has since built a hay barn, twenty by thirty-two feet, and has put eighteen thousand tile on his place and about one thousand had already been laid so that his land is now splendidly drained and its productiveness thereby greatly augmented. He carries on general farming and raises about ten head of shorthorn cattle each year, together with ten or twelve horses and about forty head of Poland China hogs, the sale of his stock adding materially to his income.

On the 1st of January, 1885, Mr. Cockayne was married to Miss Minnie Schnittger, a native of Burlington, Iowa, and a daughter of Frederick and Frederica Schnittger, both of whom were natives of Germany. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Cockayne was born a son, Artus Walter, born February 21, 1886. Minnie Cockayne died shortly after her son's birth, and Mrs. Cockayne's sister, Caroline Schnittger came to the home to help with the baby. After a time, A.B. married Caroline Schnittger, and the couple had two children; Rolly Herman, born August 9, 1889; and Rosa Lily, born December 5, 1895. All are yet at home.

The family is now pleasantly located upon the home farm in Scott township and have many warm friends in this community. Mr. Cockayne is a Presbyterian in his religious belief and votes with the Democratic party, but has neither time nor inclination for public office, preferring to give his attention to his business affairs.

Obituary, Winfield Beacon , August 1929
Another citizen of our community has gone to join the innumerable hosts who have preceeded him. After quite a long sick spell at the home of his daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Johnson , of this city, his death occuring last Thursday night. His funeral was held at the Presbyterian Church last Sunday afternoon, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Brown, and was attended by the old friends and neighbors who had known the deceased for a good many years, and his body was laid to rest beside that of loved ones in the cemetery on the hillside. Mr. Cockayne was an industrious, quiet citizen, who had surrounded himself with a large number of friends and was highly spoken of by his neighbors. When a man has resided for any length of time in a community, his neighbors know him, and so it is that they all speak in highest praise of him as a good neighbor and a loyal friend. The home where he lived quite a number of years was a short distance east and north of Winfield. After the death of his wife some four years ago, he gave up farming and made his home with his children. For several months he has been at the home of his daughter in this city. The seasons will come and go as before, but he will no more be present at the sowing or the reaping. His work is ended, but his memory will linger in the minds of his children and the friends with whom he in health associated.

70. Florence Virginia McFarland [210] was born on 7 May 1849 in Malden, W. Va., died on 24 Nov 1928 in Los Angeles County, California at age 79, and was buried Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

General Notes: Florence's gravestone gives her birth date as 7 May 1855. This is inaccurate. Florence consistently shaved six years from her age, probably because she was that much older than her husband. Florence was by all accounts a beauty, and she likely looked younger than she was, so she could claim a younger age with inpunity .

Many thanks to Teresa Mondelli for tracking down much of the information on the Hunsaker Family.

Research Notes: Florence and her sister, Lucy, came to California in 1877. Florence married William Hunsaker in 1879, and the couple, along with sister Lucy, moved to Tombstone, Arizona, where William worked as an attorney. The McFarland sisters were in Tombstone during exciting times, including the shootout at the O.K Corral. By 1882, the family had returned to San Diego where William's career took off. William was elected District Attorney for San Diego County in 1882, and in 1887, he won the office of Mayor of the City of San Diego. Florence thrived in her role as San Diego's first lady, in addition to raising the couple's children. In 1892, William and Florence moved to Los Angeles, where William returned to the practice of law. As William's success and prominence grew, Florence became one of the social leaders in the Los Angeles area. Florence regularly saw her name in the newspaper because of her involvement in St. John's Episcopal Church, the Friday Morning Club, and the Daughters of the Confederacy. Florence remained a humble, straightforward person; her letters to family are chatty and unaffected. Florence had been ill for some time when she died on 24 Nov 1928. On 25 November, the Los Angeles Times lauded Florence as a woman who would be mourned by all and remembered fondly.



Florence married William Jefferson (Will) Hunsaker [213] on 27 Feb 1879 in San Diego, San Diego, CA. William was born on 21 Sep 1855 in Lafayette, Contra Costa County, California, died on 13 Jan 1933 in Los Angeles, California at age 77, and was buried Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. The cause of his death was Heart Attack.

General Notes: William Jefferson Hunsaker always went by the name "Will." Born in Northern California, Will came with his family to San Diego when he was fourteen. Will's father was the Sheriff of San Diego County, and Will took an interest in the law when in his teens. After studying law under Major Levi Chase, Will became a member of Chase's practice in 1876. Will's career put him in contact with many men who were influencial in California politics. Shortly after Will married Florence McFarland, he received a business invitation from a man named Thomas Fitch. Fitch had a colorful career, having been an associate of Mark Twain, Brigham Young, and most influencial politicians and public figures of the west. In 1879, Fitch was elected to the Arizona Territorial Legislature, and he set up a law practice in the mining town of Tombstone. Fitch immediately sent for his friend, Will Hunsaker, to come to Tombstone and join Fitch's law firm. Will brought his wife, Florence, and Florence's sister, Lucy McFarland, with him to Tombstone. In the aftermath of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, the Earps and Doc Holliday faced murder charges, and the Earps called upon Fitch's law firm to defend them. Will Hunsaker helped lead the defense and won an aquittal for the Earps. The professional relationship between Wyatt Earp and Will Hunsaker became a lifelong friendship. When Wyatt Earp died in 1929, Will Hunsaker was one of the pall-bearers at Earp's funeral.

Will, Florence, their daughter, Mary, and Lucy McFarland had returned to San Diego by 1882. Will won the office of San Diego District Attorney, and in 1887, Will became Mayor of San Diego. Will was one of the leading figures in bringing the Santa Fe Railroad to San Diego. In 1892, Will moved to Los Angeles and revived his law practice. Will succeeded in becoming one of the most prominent figures in Los Angeles, winning the post of President of the Los Angeles Bar Association, and later serving as President of the California Bar Association.

After Florence died in 1928, Will lived alone in the couple's Los Angeles home. He died there on 13 January 1933 after suffering a heart attack.

As an attorney, William represented mining companies as well as the Earp family. Lucy had a career as a school teacher when she lived in Tombstone. It was here, and through her brother-in-law, that Lucy met Daniel Miller. Daniel was a constable and likely worked for the Earp brothers.

When William Hunsaker moved his family to San Diego, Daniel followed Lucy and married her in California. Daniel and Lucy then moved to New Mexico where Daniel had business connections with mining interests in the area. The couple had a family and Daniel became a successful merchant.

In a very short time after her arrival at her destination she became violently ill and died within thirty minutes. The cause was considered by the attending physicians, Drs. E.E. Gillian and D.L. Henry of sufficient importance to notify the coroner. Coroner J.J. Lane, arrived Sunday evening and viewed the body of the deceased and took testimony bearing on the case. Drs. Gillian and Henry, together with Dr. J.M. Howard, made a post mortem examination and found that the immediate cause of death was acute congestion of the lungs, probably brought on from over-exertion in walking. The deceased is 21 years of age, is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Martin. She lived with her parents in Armadale. She was respected and honored by all who knew her.

Arriving in Wheeling he spent two years in that city, where he became acquainted with Miss Caroline Hess. He then moved to Bellaire, where one year later he led Miss Hess to the altar. No children came to bless that union, but the couple lived a quiet, peaceful life together. They adopted a little girl and raised her as their own. She married Benjamin Cockayne, who lives in Tiffin, Ohio. Mr. Brockman was a member of the Kerr (or Kern) Lodge, IOOF, Knights of Honor and an insurance order, the National Union.

Veteran Editor, Moundsville's Craig Shaw Dies

Moundsville, Jan 1. -- Samuel Craig Shaw, publisher of the Moundsville Daily Echo since 1917, died today in a hospital at nearby Glen Dale.

Shaw, who was 82, had been in the hospital since Sunday. He had been in declining health since he underwent an operation last July.

He had been connected with the Echo since it was established 65 years ago by his father, the late James D. Shaw, and became publisher after his father's death in 1917.
Craig Shaw successfully guided the afternoon daily through many difficult times, including a 10-year period when it was challenged by a rival Moundsville daily, the Journal, when was discontinued in 1948.

Shaw conducted the Echo as a voice for civic and governmental improvement and an advocate of the dry cause. The West Virginia Temperance League credits it with being the only dry paper among the state's dailies.

Shaw also was a director until his death of the First Federal Savings and Loan Assn., here and a former director of the Municipal Mutual Insurance Co. in Wellsburg. He was a charter member of the Moundsville Rotary Club and a onetime member of the old Moundsville independent district school board. Active in politics earlier in life, he once was secretary of the Marshall County Democratic Executive Committee.

A native of Clarion County, Pa., Shaw came to West Virginia with his parents when he was 8. The family lived at New Martinsville and Middlebourne before coming here to launch the Echo. Started as a weekly, it has been a daily for 50 years.

Shaw's wife died in 1948. His survivors include two sisters, Miss Bess Shaw and Miss Gertrude Shaw, both connected with the Echo; a brother, James G. Shaw of Pittsburgh; a son, Sam Shaw, managing editor and business manager of teh Echo, and a daughter, Miss Alexandra Craig Shaw, also connected with the paper.

The Reverand Hof, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church here, will conduct funeral services at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Grisell's Funeral Home.

THE POST, Frederick Md., Friday, November 9, 1984.
[Obtained from Newspaperarchive.com by Linda Fluharty.]

Renaissance Man
One-of-a-kind newspaper editor bemoans his lack of time for his many interests

Moundsville W. Va. (AP) - Whether hurriedly pedaling an ancient bike to a news conference or nonchalantly finishing dead last in a distance run, Samuel Cockayne Shaw is a man whose sneaker-shod feet move to the beat of a decidedly distinctive drummer.
And a very demanding drummer it is -- one that keeps him on the run 16 hours a day, seven days a week.

People who know the 70-year old Shaw say he is a fellow for all seasons. He always seems to be doing something, be it jogging at dawn, snapping a photograph, writing an editorial, fiddling with a computer program, traveling abroad with a choral group, playing the recorder or promoting the virtues of his beloved community and the need for a new bridge across the Ohio River.

In this age of specialization, the white-haired Moundsville resident is a gifted, idiosyncratic throwback to the days when men tried to know and do everything.
As a result, Shaw, the third-generation publisher, editor and chief reporter of the The Moundsville Daily Echo, is well-known to the 12,000 residents of those little Ohio River community, most of whom know him simply as "Sam."

There is, however, a note of special affection in their voices when they talk about Shaw, about his baggy pants and sneakers wardrobe and his harried, non-stop lifestyle. It's as if they are acknowledging that someone special is in their midst.

"I don't think there's a soul around here who doesn't know Sam," says William Sieverton, director of the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce." "He's a unique person and he publishes a unique newspaper. In fact, his whole family is unique and always has been as far as I know."

Some people might think it is a leisurely small-town pace that has kept him Moundsville, but Shaw constantly and emphatically says otherwise.

"Oh, if there were only more time! There's so much to do and so little time to do it," is the way he puts it, quite frequently.

Accompanying this daily refrain is a characteristic gesture in which Shaw, a thin, wiry man who peers out at the world through thick lenses, covers his unruly shock of white hair with both hands in a gesture of frustration and mock supplication.

Shaw manages to find time to sing bass with the Ohio Valley Chorale, a 100-member group which toured Romania in 1974 and Spain last year. He also plays the recorder, a renaissance-era wind instrument, and is a member of the American Recorder Society of Pittsburgh.

"My father read law and always said he was going to take the bar but never did," Shaw says. I studied math and physics and always thought I would take the state examination for engineer but never have."

His newspaper has a computerized offset press operation with some of today's latest technology, including a satellite dish antenna that brings him the Associated Press report each day.

But a turn-of-the-century aura persists in the Echo's offices, Perhaps it's a combination of the paper's crowded layout and the sight of Shaw, wearing a green eyeshade and surrounded by piles of clutter, that causes observers to harken back to an earlier time when most newspapers in this country were still owned and operated by individual families.

Then again, it could be Shaw's insistence on waiting until nearly noon to make his afternoon paper, to make his courthouse rounds and begin editing his afternoon paper, to makes sure he gets as much of the day's news in as possible. Or, it could be his policy of making potential advertisers seek him out - they practically have to petition to place an ad in the Echo, with its daily circulation of 5,000 copies.

"I guess you could say I'm the advertising editor, but for the most part, we don't solicit advertising," says Shaw's 69-year-old sister and top assistant, Alexandra Shaw.
Miss Shaw and her bachelor brother live in the same house they were born in, a Victorian structure that has never had a telephone, And, like their parents, they not only ban liquor from the house, but from the pages of the Echo as well.

"In the whole history of the paper we never have taken ads that encouraged consumption of alcohol - which, in my opinion, is the most dangerous drug we have," says Shaw, a confirmed teetotaler.

Sieverton chuckles as he remembers how Shaw once agonized over a proposed ad for a chamber-sponsored carnival that included a "fish pond" game.

"He wasn't going to run the ad because he considered the fish pond to be a game of chance. He finally decided it would be OK because it was for a non-profit organization, but that shows you how seriously Sam takes his advertising policy."

Shaw says the Echo has spanned the history of printing since the newspaper's inception back in the last century.

"We started with a Guttenberg-style hand press. Then came the Linotype machines - we had six at one time - then the teletype setter, then the offset printing and now the dish antenna."

At one time, more than 50 years ago, when the Echo press still was steam-powered, Shaw, his father and his grandfather all were active in the operation of the newspaper.
"By then, though, my grandfather's main job was to keep the steam engine running," recalls Shaw. "In those days, my dad walked all over the county, selling subscriptions. He used to know every farmer in the county by name.

The Echo is as distinctive as its owner. For starters, there's the newspaper's old-fashioned, nine-column format, with a welter of stories crowded onto each page in the journalistic equivalent of telephone-booth stuffing.

Shaw also retains allegiance to some legacies of the "simplified" spelling movement" of the 1950s, a generally ill-fated attempt by some linguists and editors of the period to substitute spellings such as "brot" for brought and "thot" for thought.

Shaw writes a daily local news column called "Jots," and has been known on occasion to do just that - garnishing the day's offering with a squiggly line drawing from his own pen. And his headlines, on occasion, are uniquely personal. Favored writers are sometimes identified in headlines, as in "Herb Says: State Revenue Forecasts Off" over a story by Herb Little.

But despite his strong personal stamp on the paper, Shaw says he really isn't as independent as he seems.

"After all," he says, explaining why he keeps hustling at 70, "instead of just one boss, I've got 39,000 - the people of Marshall County."

But when it comes to his long-distance running career, Alexandra Shaw says her brother is uncharacteristically slow.

"He's constantly getting awards for coming in last," she says. "It doesn't seem to bother him, though. In fact, he's sort of proud of it,"

SAMUEL SHAW GIFTED EDITOR, ENGINEER, LINGUIST

Samuel Shaw -- newspaper editor, electronic genius, athlete, musician, photographer, linguist and birdwatcher -- was the Rennaissance man of Moundsville, W.Va.

Known in Pittsburgh as "the Flying Turtle" who finished last in The Great Race every year until he was nearly 80, Mr. Shaw died yesterday at Reynolds Memorial Hospital in Glen Dale, W.Va. He was 82, and had been in and out of the hospital since May 1993, when he was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, a muscular disease.

Mr. Shaw's grandfather founded the Moundsville Daily Echo in 1891, and his father was publisher from 1917 until 1951. Mr. Shaw's genius was clearly for engineering, but he chose to enter the family business after his graduation from Washington & Jefferson College.

His letters home from the battlefields of World War II earned the Veterans of Foreign Wars' Ernie Pyle Award for war coverage after they were published in the Echo.

Back in Moundsville after the war, Mr. Shaw used his engineering gifts to help install the city's first direct dial telephones and its first police and taxi radios. He designed one of the nation's first cable television systems for Moundsville in the early 1950s, and synchronized the town's traffic lights.

The Moundsville Echo, which was known to run local bowling league stories on the front page, may have reflected an earlier age editorially, but it was ahead of its time electronically. While editors at many of the nation's leading newspapers were still struggling to use primitive word processors, Mr. Shaw was writing his own programs to computerize the Echo.

He was the Echo's editor, publisher, chief reporter and photographer, making his rounds of city offices on a three-speed bicycle each day.

"Once The New York Times listed all the skills it took to run the paper. It took the whole top half of the page -- something like 176 skills. Well, it takes 176 skills to run the Moundsville Echo, and we've got 10 people to do it," he said in 1985.

His dedication to duty was as legendary as his bicycle. In 1987, he was knocked unconscious and his jaw was broken, apparently by two men whom he had accused of knocking over his bicycle. Two days later, Mr. Shaw was back at the office.

Mr. Shaw, a staunch opponent of drinking and gambling, scored his greatest editorial victory with his 50-year campaign for a state bridge on the Ohio River linking Moundsville to Dilles Bottom, Ohio. It was built in the 1980s.

He had many interests outside of his work. Mr. Shaw played the recorder and sang with a chorale that toured Spain and Romania. He spoke several languages and was an ardent birdwatcher.

He ran a mile every day, entering hundreds of races in the Tri-State area. He nearly always finished dead last -- but that could be relative. After finishing last in The Great Race in Pittsburgh in 1990, he was awarded a plaque for finishing first among males between 75 and 79 years old. The next month, he finished last in a Bridgeville race, despite having broken a rib and suffered facial injuries in a fall during a practice run.
The Flying Turtle's days as a runner and a bicycling reporter came to an end in 1993 when he broke his hip. He had been living in a nursing home for the past two years.

Charlie and Marian Walton, Mr. Shaw's longtime assistants, said the Daily Echo would continue to publish.

Visitation will be from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday and from 10 a.m. until the funeral at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Grisell Funeral Home, 400 Jefferson Ave., Moundsville.

SAM SHAW, 82, NEWSMAN IN WEST VIRGINIA TOWN

Sam Shaw, publisher, editor and chief reporter of the Moundsville Daily Echo - known for collecting the day's news by bicycle - died yesterday at age 82.

Mr. Shaw died at Reynolds Memorial Hospital in Glen Dale, where he was admitted Thursday. He had been in and out of the hospital since May 1993, when he was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, a muscular disease.

He had lived the past two years at a nursing home in this Ohio River city.
Charlie and Marian Walton, Mr. Shaw's longtime assistants, said the Daily Echo would continue publishing.

Samuel Cockayne Shaw was a journalist for 68 years and had been publisher and editor of the Daily Echo since 1951. He often was seen covering Moundsville by bicycle until he broke a hip in 1993.

Mr. Shaw was the last of three generations to run the Marshall County daily. His grandfather, James Davis Shaw, founded the newspaper on Oct. 30, 1891. His father, Craig Shaw, took over in 1917.

Mr. Shaw graduated from Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pa., and served in the Army during World War II, where he won the Veterans of Foreign Wars' Ernie Pyle Award for his letters home, which were published in the Daily Echo.
An amateur radio operator, Mr. Shaw helped install the first direct-dial telephones and the first police and taxi radios in Moundsville, and the first fire radios in Marshall County.

Mr. Shaw is survived by six cousins. The funeral is to be Wednesday at Grisell Funeral Home.

the Trustee, for a project or projects of capital improvement within the City of
Moundsville, with an emphasis on recreational projects. My Trustee shall, in its
sole discretion, select one or more of the projects proposed by the Moundsville

completion of the approved project or projects, and in the event of any portion

in administrating the Trust. Any successor to the Trustee shall automatically
assume the rights, duties and obligations set forth herein, as Successor
Trustee.

VIII. In the event that Mercantile Banking and Trust Company should fail to
qualify as said Trustee, for any reason, then I direct the City Council of the
City of Moundsville to designate a lending institution as Substitute or
Successor Trustee by resolution duly adopted and recorded in the Minutes of said
City Council.

IX. I nominate and appoint Mercantile Banking and Trust Company to be the
Executor of this my Will, and Trustee under Paragraph IV of this Will.

In the Matter of the Probate of

S. Cockayne, deceased.

Written by Nila Chaddock: "In November, 2001, Samuel A. J. Cockayne, a lifelong resident of Glen Dale, Marshall County, West Virginia, and a descendent of an early pioneer to the area, passed away. In his will, he bequeathed his aging 1850's farmhouse and its immense collection of 19th and early 20th Century Cockayne furnishings, artwork and other family memorabilia to the City of Glen Dale, which town bears the name of the farm. The City subsequently leased the property to the Marshall County Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, for the Society's preservation efforts."

General Notes: The Martin Family History (1980) by Bob and Stephanie Martin: Ed worked as a flagman in one of the larger railroad yards in the late 1890's. One day, he jumped off one train to flag another train and was too far over on one of the tracks. A train coming from the opposite direction hit him, amd threw him about twenty feet up in the air, and forty feet down the track. When people got to him, one of his eyes was out of its socket and lying on his cheek. Thinking he was dead someone covered him with a blanket. When his foot moved, they realized that was not the case. He recovered, with no serious injury, except for his eye. They say it always pointed somewhere off the the side after the accident. Ed served in the Spanish-American War and worked most of his life as a coal miner. He and two partners at one time owned their own mine. Ed worked in the oil fields as well. He suffered a back injury in a mine cave-in and was confined to bed for the last two years of his life. The main cause of his death was heart disease. The contributing causes of his death was from a back injury suffered in the cave-in and a gangrenous leg as a result from an injury he suffered on an oil rig.

   811 M    i. John Edwin Cockayne [507] .

Research Notes: John's early work on the Cockayne Family has been one of the cornerstones for the family genealogy. In 2014, John told the story of his research:
I started graduate school in 1965 at Marquette University and knew that I was not keeping up with what my mother, a high school teacher, had just told me about our families during a few weeks of vacation after finishing my ROTC summer camp at Ft Riley, KS and being commissioned. I decided that assembling the family trees would be a cheap and self satisfying hobby that I could do at any time that I needed a diversion.
Thus the 80-column computer card became my approach to individual records because mistakes could be corrected by punching up a new card when needed, and obtaining an updated printout was easy too do at MU's computer center where I spent several hours each week.
I encoded the COUNTIES for birth, marriage, and 'death' locations into two letters; the states were already only two letters. I don't recall that I every thought about my grandmother's death certificate probably being in Park River, ND and her burial in Kansas, which might make for a puzzle.
I transferred to Purdue in early 1967 during a big blizzard and ice storm from Milwaukee, past Chicago, and down to West Lafayette, IN. Shortly thereafter I received a phone call from another graduate student asking if I had any genealogy information about the Cockaynes and would I share it because she was a Morman and her mother was from a large number of Cockayne families out in Utah. I did so and then became busy with my PhD work.
Then I went into the Army Ordnance Corps in late September 1969 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD and was assigned to the then Defense Atomic Support Agency in Arlington, VA in early December 1969. I started business travel all around the country and would look in all of the telephone books in the motels for any Cockaynes. I soon found several in California.
During those early years, I received a call one Memorial Day weekend from a lady running the Moundsville, WV newspaper with her brother, both unmarried on a brief trip to Washington, DC, because her mother was a Cockayne. That is how I found out about the short annotation in her older records saying that Hiram went west in 1838; and the rest is history.
My sister Mary Ann Sohm has tremendously expanded both sides of our family, and my brother George has visited MANY cemeteries and court houses in southeastern Iowa to find graves and records of original Cockaynes before they expanded/migrated to northern Missouri and down to southeastern Kansas.

CHARLES WILLIAM RICKARDS
Birth Date: 25 DEC 1923
Birth Place: MONTANA
Death Date: 28 FEB 1955
Death Place: HAPPY CAMP, CALIFORNIA, USA
Cause of Death: One-Car Accident
Charles lived in Happy Camp, Calif, with his wife Carol Casmey, young son Charles Jr.--aka "Little Ricky" and two daughters Vernita Marie and LynnRae Rickards. Happy Camp sits on the Klamath River and a nexus of creeks including: Elk Creek; Little Grider Creek; Indian Creek; Doolittle Creek; Ikes Creek; Deer Lick Creek and Cade Creek. There was a terrible one-car accident in which both Charles Sr. and his wife Carol was involved in and both suffered serious injuries. Charles lost control of the car when he hit a patch of ice and the car went down a 200 Ft. cliff and landed in the river. Carol held his head above water until the ambulance arrived. Both were taken to the hospital. Charles died a short time later from fatal head injuries. Carol was hospitalize for about two months before being released. All three children were placed by the state in foster care, in the same home in Albany, Oregon. I was told this happened because there were no relatives at the time that could step in and care for their children. My mother Carmella Casmey Gill told me that Charles was a very nice and handsome man. His wife and family loved him and his death was a great loss for many.

Charles married Carol Margaret Casmey [1668]. Carol was born on 15 Feb 1934 in Castle Rock, Cowlitz County, WA, died on 9 Dec 2008 in Albany, Dougherty County, GA at age 74, and was buried Andersonville National Cemetery in Macon County, GA.

General Notes: Obituary: Published in the Longview Daily News on Oct. 10, 1957, page 15:1 and Oct 11, 1957, page 16:1. Parents: Mother: Carol "Casmey" Odom Birth: Feb. 15, 1934Castle Rock, Cowlitz County, Washington, USA Father: CHARLES WILLIAM RICKARDS Birth 25 DEC 1923 in MONTANA, USA Death 28 FEB 1955 in HAPPY CAMP, CALIFORNIA, USA Charles "Choked to death on a piece of toast", while he was in foster care. Little Ricky was placed in foster care in a home in Albany, Oregon along with this two younger sisters; Vernita "Nina" Marie and LynnRae Rickards. Their father had died in a terrible car accident, which also resulted in their mother being hospitalized for a couple of months. Unfortunately, there were no relatives whom were able to care for the children at that time so they were placed in foster care by the State of Oregon. One morning the foster mother was upset because she thought Charles was not eating fast enough to finish his breakfast before catching the school bus. According to both his sisters, "several years later" the foster mother had shoved her fist down his throat with the piece of toast. A doctor was summoned for help who lived across the street, but Charles died no more than 15 minutes after the incident. The girls were too afraid of what the foster mother might to do to them, to speak the truth. Because the truth did not come out until several years after Charles death, no charges were ever filed. It was not until after the funeral that both girls were returned to their mothers custody. Mother Carol fought a very long and hard battle to regain custody, but it was not until she actually "remarried" and her "son died", that the court finally granted Carol and her new husband Roy Odom custody. My mother Carmella, attended the funeral and said it was one of the saddest funerals she had ever attended. This story of events that took place were told to me by my Mother Carmella Casmey Gill and my Cousins Carol Casmey Odom and her second husband Roy Odom. It is one of the saddest stories I ever heard. God Bless Little Ricky.
