      Hannah Devore Jones
      Hannah Devore is related to my side of the family through her marriage to Benjamin Cockerham in 1792. Her son, John Cockerham, married Satirah Keen and their daughter Catherine Arminte Cockerham was my grandmother Martha Dell Satirah Cain Wallis's mother. I would like any information you might have about Hannah Devore and/or the Cockerhams.
