    • ----- Original Message ----- From: "John & Elnora Wyrick" To: "June Lloyd- Moffett" ; "Vicki" ; "Diana M Williams" Sent: Tuesday, September 02, 2003 9:30 AM Subject: Able Cook Saga Good Morning, Hope you all had a nice holiday, all I could do was think about this Able Cook, Goodson Kids Probate Pkg., mystery!! Think I have figured it out, now bear with me! Here are outlines of Able Cook and Peter Hawthorne; I think that the first child of Able and Rebecca was "John W. Cook", found him on the 1850 census, was the only other Cook in Jefferson Co., MS in 1850. Then Able married Harriet Unkn when Rebecca died shortly after the child (?John W) was born, they had James M, Jefferson W. and Able died, Harriet marries Peter Hawthorne (unknown if he is the widower of her sis in-law Margaret Cook) then Harriet and Peter had "Minerva Jane Hawthorne-aka Mary J Cook-on the 1850 census) and that gave James M Cook the right to declare "He was the nearest relative of his niece and nephew-Teledi Marion and Mary V Goodson" in the probate tutorship court case. Minerva Jane Hawthorne/Mary J Cook, James M, and Jefferson W Cook were 1/2 bro and sis, their Mother was Harriet (Unkn) Cook Hawthorne! IF James M and Jefferson W are Harriet's children that would allow for "James M's claim of nearest relative" But would still not accommodate for Able dying by 1823 as I have recorded I still firmly believe the 1850 census showing "Celeste and son James" is WRONG and it should read "Samantha and son Mark". I am so sure that I am going to record the info into my main file, the only thing I am not totally comfortable with is oldest son being that "John W Cook" in the 1850 census Jefferson Co., MS. Diana could you please check again for the documentation for Able's probate? Any comments, suggestions etc.?? Elnora > Descendants of Able Cook; > 1 Able Cook b: Abt. 1792 in (?)
