  Research Notes:

From FindaGrave.com:
Prudence was the daughter of Stephen Gill (died 17 Feb 1734) and Elizabeth (Haubert/Hubbard/Hubbert) Gill. She was baptized at St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Owings Mills, Baltimore County, Maryland.

On 14 May 1753, Prudence signed a marriage contract with Thomas Cockey, and it was witnessed by Stephen and Elinor Gill.

Prudence and Thomas Cockey (24 Dec 1724 - 22 Nov 1784) married on 15 May 1753 at St. Thomas' Episcopal Church.

Thomas was the son of Capt. John Cockey, Sr., (1680-1746) and Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker (c.1685-1780).

According to Thomas and Prudence's grandson, Mordecai Gist Cockey, Thomas had some stipulations about who could be buried on the family property called "Melinda's Prospect." However, when the property left the Cockey family, Thomas, Prudence, and Thomas, Jr., all ended up together at a cemetery. Mordecai said you could hear the bodies rolling.

Mordecai Gist Cockey (1802-1872) was the son of Thomas Cockey, Jr., and Ruth (Brown) Cockey.
