    History:

    The Cochran-Anspach house was built in 1821 by Isaiah Clark for Thomas Cochran, one of the first settlers of
    Millerstown. This was the third stone house Cochran built.

    Thomas Cochran was born in 1776 in Londonderry, Ireland. Me and his three brothers, who were Protestants, were forced to leave Ireland and come to this country. They owned considerable land in Ireland. A Catholic priest, who was a friend, was left in charge of their holdings. the eventual sale of which increased their already ample funds to the extent that the Cochrans became one of the largest land holders in Pennsylvania. The brothers came to Chester County and laid out Cochransville. however, Thomas came to Millerstown in 1798.

    Records state that Thomas Cochran was an an ‘elegant looking gentleman of courteous and pleasant manners and an excellent penman’. In 1802 he married Sophia Maria Porter of Lewistown who was born in Londonderry, Ireland in 1776. This couple had six children.

    The first stone house constructed in Millerstown by Cochran was the present Veterans of foreign Wars house in 1801.
