Like most good mystery novels this plot just keeps getting more and more twisted. Seems that I've found a line of Cochrans that traveled back and forth from Arkansas to the Choctaw Nation that are not directly related to the RL Cochran line...
I had a long discussion a while back with Bruce Nichols over the identity of JD Pulliam. Seems that there were two of them John Drury and James Drury (cousins in fact) Wasn't no wonder I spent weeks trying to figure out how "he" was in two places at once. I'm not sure it wasn't planned that way to confuse the Union command. It worked on me. I just have to remember not to get tunnel vision periodically.
I have no idea if thsi second bunch of Cochran's had anything to do with Cochran Academy or if the CSA records indicating units at "Cochran's " refers to Cochran academy.
