  LUCIUS E. COCHRAN, whose numerous and important business interests and connections have made his name a familiar one all over and beyond the State of Ohio, and whose personal attributes have won him the confidence and esteem of his fellow-citizens at Youngstown, was born June 12, 1842, in Delaware County, Ohio, and is a son of Robert and Nancy (Hummason) Cochran.
     The Cochran family was founded in Trumbull County, Ohio, by George H. Cochran, the grandfather of our subject, who transferred his mercantile interests from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to Vienna Ohio.  His son Robert, one of his six children, passed the greater part of his life as an agriculturist in Logan County, where he and his wife were leading members of the Christian Church.  They had a family of four sons and three daughters.
     Lucius E. Cochran was educated in the district schools and later took a commercial course at Pittsburg, following which he accepted a position as clerk in a general store.  In 1862 he became bookkeeper for the firm of Andrews & Hitchcock, prominent business men of Youngstown, with whom he remained until 1867, when he went into business for himself, becoming a member of the mercantile firm of Andrews Brothers & Company, at Haselton, Ohio, a suburb of Youngstown.  In 1880 Mr. Cochran was elected president and treasurer of a large business combination, which united the firms of Andrews Brothers, Andrews Brothers & Company, and the Niles Iron Company into a corporation known as the Andrews Brothers Company.  In addition to the duties of this position, involving immense responsibility.  Mr. Cochran is connected, either as a principal and important official, in some of the greatest combinations of capital and industry that now occupy the attention of the business world in this section.  He was president of the Youngstown Car Manufacturing Company; was also president of the Youngstown Bridge Company; and is president of the Youngstown Iron and Steel Roofing Company; president of the Youngstown Pressed Steel Car Company; president of the G. M. McKelvey Company; president of the Edwin Bell Company, conducting a cooperage business, of which he was one of the originators; president of the Mahoning Valley Water Company; vice-president of the Commercial National Bank; vice-president of the Morris Hardware Company; a director of the Youngtown Carriage & Wagon Company; a director of the Ohio Steel Company, of which he was one of the founders, and a director of the Pittsburg, Cleveland & Toledo Railroad Company.  He was one of the originators of the Mahoning & Shenango Dock Company, as well as of the Mahoning Ore Company, of which latter concern he was formerly vice-president.  Mr. Cochran deserves the title of captain of industry, for he has reached his elevated position in the business world through a natural business genius.
     In 1868 Mr. Cochran was married to Mary Isabella Brownlee, a daughter of John and Leah (Powers) Brownlee.  They had two sons, Robert B. and Chauncy A., the former of whom is now deceased.  Chauncy A. Cochran is a very prominent young business man at Youngstown, is a secretary of the Youngstown Iron & Steel Roofing Company, and also of the Youngstown Pressed Steel Company.  He married Sarah E. Davis, daughter of the late Hon. John R. Davis, of Youngstown, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this volume, and resides at No. 680 Bryson street, Youngstown.
     Mr. Cochran has always been identified politically with the Republican party.  During his residence at Haselton he served 22 years as postmaster, being an appointee of President Grant.  His fraternal connections include membership in all the highest branches of Masonry, he having attained the 32nd degree.  Both he and his wife are members of the Memorial Presbyterian Church at Youngstown.

years old, after which he continued to reside with his mother until the time of his marriage.  In 1875, one year after his marriage, he moved to Holland, near Warren, Trumbull County, and rented the Christopher Milligan farm for three years, after which he returned to Coitsville township and rented the Kimwell farm for seven years.  In 1880, he bought his present farm, on which he located two years later, and immediately began making improvements.  The house was then situated on the west end of the farm and this he moved to the east end, on the Struthers and Poland road, now known as Poland Avenue, and later sold this house after having removed it to another lot.  In 1903, he built a commodious, modern 12-room house, and in 1889 he erected a fine large barn.  Mr. Creed runs a dairy in connection with his farming, and keeps about 25 cows.  With Dr. W. A. Morrison of Struthers, he bought 50 acres of land in Struthers, adjoining his farm, which was formerly the Joseph Sexton farm, and this property was laid out in town lots, the greater part of which have been sold.  Mr. Creed is also a director of the Struthers Savings and Banking Company.  Fraternally he is a member of the Protective Home Circle, and is religiously associated with the United Presbyterian Church of Struthers, of which he is a trustee.
     On Apr. 30, 1874, Mr. Creed was united in marriage to Susan W. Reed, a daughter of John H. Reed, and a sister of William Reed, of whom a sketch appears in this work.  Children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Creed, namely: Nellie J., who married Enos Humm, of Struthers, has four children, Harry, Roy, Alice, and Frank;  L.
