Re: Capt. Lawson Soley Cochrane

Steve posted several references for Capt. Lawson Soley Cochrane (Massachusetts marriage, Draft Registration, census, etc.).  For those researching Capt. Cochrane, here is his obituary from the March 13, 1964 Halifax Chronicle Herald:
FOX RIVER - Capt. Lawson Soley Cochrane died in hospital in San Francisco, Calif.  He was born in Fox River in 1888, eldest son of the late Capt. and Mrs. John W. Cochrane.  After completing his education, he followed the sea and was Captain with the Furness Withy Steamship Lines and sailed out of New York for many years.  He has been living in San Francisco for the past 25 years.  He was married twice.  Surviving are his second wife, one son, Dr. Rexmond C. Cochrane of Baltimore, and two daughters, Delta, New York and Rita (Mrs. Louis Hicks) of Long Island, N.Y.; two brothers, Dr. Dara M. Cochrane and Arthur Cochrane of River Hebert, and one sister Leta (Mrs. W.R. Wells) of Brockville, Ont.  He was predeceased by two brothers, Lee, who died in Florida seven years ago and Dr. Perry Cochrane, Wolfville, who died three weeks ago.  Burial took place in San Francisco.

I believe Capt. Cochrane's second wife was Stella McCallen (possibly Lulu Stella McCallen) born 19-Jan-1886 in Illinois and died 19-Apr-1985 in Benicia, Solano Co., California.  (Her Calif. Death Reg. says she was born in Tennessee, but the 1900 and 1940 census both say Illinois.)
