    Notes 
    • From Julie
      Birth date could be 27 Jan 1814?

      Died: 21 Jul 1863 or As the DAR has it 24 Jul 1865
      Julie tried to check but the tumbstone was broken & crumbling & buried so dates could not be read.

      On the 1850 Census - IN, Marshall Co. - it Lists:

      Peter Cook age 32 born in VA
      Elizabeth Cook age 35 "or" 45 born in VA
      James L. Cook age 15 born in VA
      William M. Cook age 12 born in VA
      Samuel G. Cook age 11 born in VA
      T.H. Cook age 9 born in VA

      Since all the children were born in VA, & I have found Peter Cook on the 1 840 Census in Monroe Co., Unknown township, VA (WV now), I have deduced th ey moved to IN after 1840.

      I have also deduced that Elizabeth died between 1850 - 1860, since on t he 1860 Census IN, Liberty township, St. Joseph Co., it lists:

      Peter Cook age 46 born in VA
      "Hannah" or "Honorah" Cook age 27 born in NC
      Harry "or" Harvey Cook age 22 born in VA
      William Cook age 23 born in VA

      It states that Peter & Hannah were married.
      I have not been able to find James or Samuel in 1860, but am still lookin g.

      On the 1870 Census, there is nothing in IN for Peter, so I "assume" th at he died between 1860-1870
      But they could of "moved".

      1870 IN, North Township, Marshall Co., it lists:

      William M. Cook age 32 born in VA
      Emma A. Cook age 25 born in OH
      Malissa J. Cook age 4 born in IN
      Mary A. Cook age 2 born in IN

      1870 IN, Etna Green, Kosciusko Co., it lists:

      James L. Cook age 35 born in VA
      Martha Cook age 8 born in IN
      Ida Cook age 5 born in IN
      I would assume James was a widower, left with 2 small children.

      1870 IN, Tyner City, Polk Co., it lists:
      Harvey Cook age 28 born in VA
      Martha J. Cook age 27
      James M. Cook age 8/12
      Emma Cook age 7
      William Berryman age 17 (brother-in-law to Harvey)
      Henry Berryman age 14 " "

      Still haven't found anything on Samuel, so I'm thinking he might of die

      1880 IN, Polk Twp., Marshall Co. it lists:
      Harvey T. Cook age 39
      Martha J. Cook age 38
      Lillian Cook age 8
      Ira Cook age 4
      Riley Berriman age 25 (Brother-in-law)
      Henry Berriman age 23 " "

      1880 IN, Bourbon, Marshall CO., it lists:
      James Cook age 45
      Ellen Cook age 25
      Martha Cook age 17
      Ida Cook age 15
      Owen Cook age 9/12 (Sept)
