Cockey had houses on or near Carter Creek.  The time period was around 1866.  I tried to track down any family members on the internet but was not successful.  I was hoping to contact them to see if they had any old pictures or drawings of Carter Creek that might indicate water depth and use by showing boats docked or moored in the creek. I certainly would appreciate any assistance you can provide. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
