   It is important to note here that there are many errors contained in Octavia Bond's "Family Chronicle and Kinship Book" in her accounting of Thomas Cocke's descendants on page 455.  Unfortunately, her errors have proliferated, so with the following, I offer a corrected version.  Specifically, Bond says that Walter Karr married Lizzie Read, daughter of Mary (Cocke) Read (see #15 below), and that their daughter Lucy married Briscoe Thompson of Russellville; however, this is not accurate.  Walter Karr married Ettie Meek, daughter of Lucy (Moore) Meek (see #26 below), who in turn was the daughter of Narcisse Marjianna (Cocke) Moore.  It was Walter and Ettie's daughter Lucy who married Briscoe Thomason (note the spelling difference) of Russellville, Hamblen Co., TN.  -- Carole Thomason
