It looks like your J. V. Cockrell won himself a battle. It looks like he went by his middle name Vard Cockrell...It was the Battle of Lone Jack

He is even listed on Wiki. He had a successful life...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vard_Cockrell

A link....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lone_Jack

Here is some supporting info.....

http://books.google.com/books?id=G40vAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA1-PA131&dq=Col.+Cockrell&hl=en&ei=bqf-S6SAIISglAeKjvXvCQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CDcQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=Col.%20Cockrell&f=false


Here is a detail account of the action....They spelled his name as Ward instead of Vard and it starts at the bottle of page 66....
