Pearl Cockfield 1890's Natchitoches, Louisiana

For the next few days I'll be posting pictures of Pearl Cockfield and her family. Pearl was born in October of 1897, so this picture is definitely from the 90's. The picture wasn't in very good condition when I got it and someone had tried to tape it up, but the picture itself is very clear. I love the little anchors on the arm chair peeking out from behind the blanket!

If you know who this may be, let us know in the comments!


  1. Hi!

    I'm over from FarSideofFifty's blog. I'll have to browse your blog - it looks fascinating!

  2. Pearl's parents are William J and Alice.

    Pearl appears in the 1900 and 1910 US Censuses:

    I'll see if I can find out if she married or not.

    1. Thank you so much, I've been looking for her grave! I actually have a picture of Alice Cockfield that I will be posting soon. :)

  3. is Pearl's gravestone.

    She married Jules Barre and had a daughter named Marjorie Shirley Barre born in 1924.
