    Biography Nancy "Anne" Winstead was born about 1757 in Edgecombe County, NC one of 6 known surviving children (4 boys/6 girls) born to farmers Joseph Winstead (ca. 1725-abt 1788) and his wife, Ann, who had removed from Northumberland Co, VA in the early 1750's settling in the area of present-day Nash County. She was the paternal grandchild of Samuel Winstead II (ca. 1701-1773); and was a direct descendant of this family's patriarch, Daniel Winstead (ca. 1647-1671) of Chichester, England, who settled in Virginia Colonies in Lancaster County. Anne was about 22 years old when she married John C. Cockrell, Sr., originally from Virginia, who had settled in Nash County, NC. The couple would become parents to 7 known children: (1) Joseph Jacob Cockrell (ca. 1780-1819), (2) Elizabeth "Betsy" Cockrell (1783-1846), (3) John C. Cockrell, Jr. (1790-1866), (4) Archibald "Baldy" Cockrell (ca. 1796-aft 1850), (5) Vincent Cockrell (ca. 1795-aft 1850), (6) Nancy Cockrell (bef 1800), (7) Samuel Cockrell (bef 1809). Anne was widowed in 1809 when her husband of 30 years died at about age 59. She remained in Nash County until she removed with her son, John C. Cockrell, Jr., to Greene County, AL in about 1822. Ann was about 65 when she made the rugged journey by wagon from North Carolina to Alabama, traveling with a group of several families emigrating from Nash County. Anne died in Greene County, AL in 1837 when she was about 80 years old.

She was the paternal grandchild of Samuel Winstead II (ca. 1701-1773); and was a direct descendant of this family's patriarch, Daniel Winstead (ca. 1647-1671) of Chichester, England, who settled in Virginia Colonies in Lancaster County.

      -------------------------------------
      Wife Anne named in Johns will which was dated 20 March 1809. Named in her father's Will dated 1794, Nash County, North Carolina and named "Cockrell". 1815 Nov 19, Nash Co., NC. Rights in the estate of Samuel Winstead 1815 Nov 19, Nash Co., NC. Sale, named as widow of John Cockrell. Birth date of Nancy Anne Winstead calculated from age at death. 1825 Oct 11, Nash Co., NC. Nancy & Vincent Cockrell jointly sold Green Eastman 297 acres on the Waters of the Blumby. Nash County, NC. Deeds, Nov. Term, pg 562. (Deed given to me by Onnie Cockrell-Mar. 1996) 1825 Oct 11, Nash Co., NC. Nancy & John Cockrell jointly sold Hilliard Horn 343 acres of land laying on the North side of the Blumby. Nash County, NC. Deeds, Nov. Term, pg 563(?). Together these two sales equal the amount of acreage, 640 acres, contained in a 1780 grant to John Cockrells of land laying on Bloomery Swamp adjoining John Eastman. (Deed given to me by Onnie Cockrell, Mar. 1996) This proves that Nancy Ann Winstead Cockrell (mother) was still alive in 1825.
