Location: About 11 miles southeast of Huntington; take Hwy.
69 south to Huntington turning onto FM 2109 for about 11 miles then left onto 2801 (Hanks
Creek area) then right onto CR 363 at the Cochran Cemetery sign, cemetery will be on right
side of road.
Cochran Cemetery is known for the story that surrounds the small gravestone that is
located towards the front & center of the cemetery. It is that of an unknown baby that
was left on the doorstep of the Lovelady Family who lived down the road. The old original
marker has long since deteriorated and lays in a pile behind a new one that has replaced
it. It reads as follows:
"Unknown infant boy found at the home of J. K. LOVELADY on 4-1 and died on 4-3-1899
- MAN WHO ARE YOU"
