Kenneth and I went to Monroe City public school. He was a few years ahead of me, and although we shared the same surname, I didn't realize we were cousins since we weren't first cousins. Later, we attended reunions together and I so appreciated his genealogy book as well as the updated version. They are invaluable to me in learning about my roots on my father's side of the family. He must have spent countless hours in gleaning all the information organizing it into book form. Georgia Cockerham McDaniel

Uncle Kenny became my Uncle about 18 years ago when Steve Jacobs and I got married. I will also remember him as being a very gentle soul! When Aunt Lucille passed away, my mother-in-law Patricia Jacobs and her sister Aunt Mary Wagoner, wanted to go to Seymour for the services but I no way to get there. I took the day off of work and drove there from LaPorte early in the morning. I will never, ever forget Uncle Kenny saying to me "Thank you for bringing my sisters to see me".

Uncle Kenneth will be greatly remembered by his family. He was known for his immense knowledge of the Cockerham genealogy. He along with Aunt Lucille were a strong Christian marriage and exemplified that to our families. Always encouraging and sharing of his experiences in life with us. I was able to spend time with him the last few years of his life, traveling north to the LaPorte Indiana for a surprise visit with his late sister Mary Etta . While there, visiting with nieces and nephew. The trip was not without some history travels through Indiana which he immensely enjoyed. I again saw him the past Memorial Day Holiday and decorated his and Aunt Lucille’s gravesite and shared a meal with him. A good and GodlyMan. Robert Dale Cockerham Nephew Evansville In.
