Thanks!   Now to find out what his original last name was since it was changed to Cocklin once his family immigrated to Pennsylvania.

Megan I saw your comment about a name change. Have you researched the Conklin surname? There are many Conklins that settled in NY, PA, MA & OH. including those from my ancestry.
