On the Family Side...

Cochrane Family Ends A Century Of Business Ownership

As Carlyle prepares to celebrate its centennial, the Cochrane family could be celebrating one of their own.

“My grandfather started in 1905 so we’ve been in business 100 years in Carlyle,” Boyd Cochrane said. “I was born here, and my dad was born here in 1907. Our roots go deep in this town.”

Boyd’s grandfather, Henry, began his machine/hardware business in 1905. Boyd and his father, Elmer, continued the tradition until January, 2005 when Boyd retired and sold the Home Hardware to Gilles and Nancy Matthewson. Carlyle Observer
