Ash Grove Cemetery

Allen County, Ohio

In Ash Grove Cemetery is the grave of Rev. Simon Cockrun;
nothing is known of his early life. A letter from a relative to Mrs. Grace
Bryan Hollister says: "He has a monument in Ash Grove Cemetery
which was considered a good one at the time." and later Mrs. Hollister
copied the following inscription: -"Rev. Simon Cockrun, Revolutionary
soldier, died June 9, 1845, aged 89 years, 11 months and 6 days." The
marble cutter may not have followed copy in chiseling the data into
the enduring stone, but this man was born in 1754. and was almost a
nonogenarian; the Cockruns about Spencerville are descended from
this patriot.
