In his letter of 26 January 1999, William Oye informed us of the following:

[I] received more discs from Family Tree Maker. On the Passenger and Immigration List Index 1538-1940,
I found the following listing:

Primary individual, Cock, Micharl [sic]
Place: Philadelphia
Year: 1732
Age: 33

I had not found it before because of the way they spelled Michael, with the "r" instead of "e." It was probably a typo but it wouldn't bring it up. Also Cock not Cocks. Think it might fit?

Also I'm still not sure where to put David that I had as a son of Michael and Elizabeth, and was their other son Michael that married Leah Todd.

Listing of inhabitants in 1785 Fayette County, PA.:
Cock, John Union Township, Pennsylvania
Cock, Michal Jr. Luzerne Township
Cock, Michal Sr. Luzerne Township
Cocks, Jacob Luzerne Township
Cox, Joseph Springhill Township

Surname Index to Fayette County Cemeteries:
Cock-Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery
Cox-Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery
Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Dunbar Township.
