Here Velma Cochren Priest is shown between the grave stones of her grandfather Newton Jasper Cochren. He was wounded in the Civil War at the Battle of Chickamauga. His wife was Lucinda Drake Cochren. Photo taken August 22, 1977.
In 1977 Velma Dora Cochren Terry, along with son Dennis and his family, traveled back to Plevna so Velma could show off her hometown. Here is a shot from the west side showing the store where as a girl Velma was sent on errands. This was the view she saw everytime she walked to get groceries for her mother.
