Looking for birth mother info - B L Cochrane

Hello all,

On behalf of my wife, I am looking for any information regarding Barbara Lois Cochrane born in Springhill, NS in May of 1954.

My wife was born July of 1975 in Kingston, Ontario and was given the name of Tina Cochrane by her birth mother.

Thanks for your help,
Loving husband

I have looked through all my records to try and find anything on the name Cochrane in Springhill and there is very little. I was born in 1953 and raised in Springhill and the name Barbara Lois Cochrane is not familiar. I went through my yearbooks from 1968 to 1971 and she is not in any of them.
I got this from the Moss diaries and www.novascotiagenealogy.com
The only name I can find is
William Lawrence Cochrane b. 1897 d. Sept. 8, 1946 Killed #4 mine
He is son of Charles & Evangeline and was born in the Port Greville area of NS, close to Parrsboro.
His wife is Martha L. Hennigar b. 1899 d. Nov. 19, 1971, Springhill
She is a daughter of Nicholas, born in Kennetcook, NS

These may be the grandparents of Barbara Cochrane and may give you something more to go on. I haven't been able to find the children of William and Martha but someone on this site may have that information. Barbara may have been born in Springhill and raised elsewhere. Numerous families moved from Springhill after the 1958 Bump.
I hope this helps you in your search and if I come across anything else I will post it here. If your wife was born in Kingston ON, see if you can find an old telephone directory for that area and see if there were Cochrane families living there. Look for a genealogy site or library in that area and they may be able to help.
Good luck in your search.

Hello Val,

Thanks for all your help. It is very generous of you. Hopefully other members may have some information on the children of William and Martha Cochrane.

We will look into Kingston Phone directories as you suggested.

Thanks again!

Realize your message is older but....Wm and Martha (Hennigar) Cochrane of Springhill had an infant daughter who died at the age of 2 months in 1924, her name was Lois Evangeline Cochrane, as per NS Vital Statics.  According to Williams obituary in 1946 they also had two sons Leslie and Roy.  I am told there may have been a third son but cannot confirm. I was also told Martha Left Springhill after his death, but her obituary shows her living in Springhill, still with the name of Cochrane.  She was born in Kennetcook, NS and they married in Westmorland, New Brunswick..Hope this is of some help.
