"The original burying ground of the Cockey family is located on land owned in 1728 by John Cockey, son of William, the immigrant, and now belonging [in 1908] to the Browns of Brooklynwood. It is in the third district, lying and bounding on the road running up the north side of Green Spring valley, from the Falls road at Cockey's old tavern. The cemetery is on the top of a slight hill in a meadow-like field about three hundred yards from the Falls road and about the same distance from the farm buildings of George Brown.
"John Cockey, one of the Justices of Baltimore county, and also one of the Commissioners appointed in 1732, to lay off ten acres east of the falls as an addition to Baltimore city, is buried here. His tomb is inscribed:
"In Memory of John Cockey, son of William the immigrant, aged 66 years, Died Aug. 15th 1746.
"Other inscriptions are:
"Elizabeth Baker, wife of Rev. Charles Baker, and formerly wife of John Cockey, aged 95, died Aug. 5th, 1780.
"W. Cockey, son of John and Elizabeth, born 1718, died ____ 1756.
"Wm. Cockey, aged 9 years, 1782.
"Richard Owens aged 17 months and 20 days, Oct. 12, 1787.
"Elizabeth Baker's maiden name was Slade. W. Cockey married Constant Ashman."

Capt. Cockey, Sr., was the son of William Cockey, the Immigrant.

John married Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker (c.1685 - 5 Aug 1780) on 2 Apr 1726. She was the daughter of William Slade, Jr.

The earliest segment of "Oakdene" at 12025 Greenspring Valley Road in Brooklandville, Baltimore County, Maryland, was built at the beginning of the 18th century by Capt. John Cockey.

John and Elizabeth were the original owners of the estate now known as Brooklandwood in the Green Spring Valley, which later was acquired by Charles Carroll, the Signer. The Brooklandwood Mansion built by Charles Carroll for his daughter, Mary (Carroll) Caton, in 1798 overlooks the Green Spring Valley, and is now part of St. Paul's School for Boys.

Capt. John Cockey wrote his will on 22 May 1740 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker [2nd] married Rev. Charles Baker on 9 Jan 1748. He was the Rector of St. John's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland.

Capt. John Cockey and Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker, were originally buried in a Cockey family cemetery in the Green Spring Valley at the top of a slight hill about 300 yards from Falls Road.

Their gravemarkers, and two others, were moved to St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Owings Mills, and are resting against a wall in Lot 123 of the Church Yard.

"In Memory of John Cockey, son of William the immigrant, aged 66 years. Died Aug. 15th 1746."

"Elizabeth Baker, wife of Rev. Charles Baker, and formerly wife of John Cockey, aged 95, died Aug. 5th, 1780."

"W. Cockey, son of John and Elizabeth, born 1718, died ____ 1756."

"Wm. Cockey, aged 9 years, 1782.

In writing of this old burial ground in 1855, Dr. John Paul Cockey states, among other things, that the brick wall which his grandfather, Capt. John Cockey, placed around it has been almost entirely removed by repeated robbery of its materials, notwithstanding the reservation of the burial ground, with its privileges, when Capt. John Cockey sold the adjacent lands. The robbery has been continued until there is no trace that there ever was a brick in the vicinity, and some of the stone foundation has also been taken away. The gravestones, too, have been taken up and thrown under an ash tree growing upon the lot and some of them are broken; two only remained standing in 1898. It is not probable that the number of graves here was ever large.

Richard Owens was originally buried in this Cockey family cemetery, but is currently buried in Lot 181 of the Church Yard of St. Thomas' Episcopal Church.

"Richard Owens aged 17 months and 20 days, Oct 12, 1787."
