Much information on WFT15 Tree 818, is incorrect - if you are here because of this tree, please email me if you need to see if there are other connections I have with your line.  I will submit my GEDCOM file to Ancestry. Com  in the near future.

I am descendant from Francis Cooke of the Mayflower. Each father named a son Jacob, and in our family follows each Jacob Cooke- until Jacob Cooke and his wife Phebe Lindley: here my Cook line continues from their daughter, Jemima.  

Jemima first married Lot Leonard; after Lot's death, she married her cousin, Ziba Cooke or Zibe Cook or Ziba Cook (as best as we can tell, this is her cousin).

We are still searching for the parents of the mysterious Zibe Cooke.  We do know that Ziba was born 1760 and died 1823.

From the marriage of Ziba and Jemima Cooke, came a son Solomon Cooke, born 1785- died 1850 and then his son, James Brice Cooke born 1821 died 1860, then his son Solomon Cooke was born 1845 and died 1923.


My grandfather John J. Cook was born 1873 and died 1957; my father Ralph Gordon Cook was born 08-20-1907 and died 09-28-1978.

I have included pictures of many family members.  You might wish to view and see if you have similar pictures.
