Biography

Sarah Northcutt's father may have been John Northcutt, an early resident of Henry County because at one point, both John Northcutt and William Cochran, the father of Samuel, owned land along the waters of Leatherwood Creek in Henry County, Virginia.

Sarah was living in Henry County, Virginia when she married Samuel Cochran - he was residing near Blackwater River in Bedford County. This records of marriage came from a page of Samuel and Mary's bible submitted with Samuel's Revolutionary application. Sarah Northcutt lived to be about 84 years of age. Her son-in-law John B. Brizendine was issued a letter of administration for Sarah Cochran in March 1849. She was buried in an unmarked grave in Shanklin Cemetery next to her husband Samuel Cochran.

A pension application for Sarah Northcutt Cochran states the following: Rhoda Chitwood of Franklin County, Virginia - Sarah lived at Rhoda's father's house before she married Samuel. Sarah and Rhoda were cousins.

Barnett Blankinship (of Sumner County, TN in 1846) said he lived one or two miles (in Virginia) from Cochran and about 3 miles from Sarah before they married. Samuel had returned from the war 3 or 4 years before he was married and Miss Northcutt was a frequent visitor at his father's house before her marriage. Cochran lived at the time of marriage near the bank of Blackwater River, and Miss Northcutt lived on the Henry County side and the marriage may have been on that side of the river. Sarah Northcutt about one or two years before her marriage came on a visit from some of the lower counties in Virginia to a relation of hers named SHARP and finally lived there previous to her marriage.
