1.       Capt Ralph Stewart was born on Jan 17 1750 in Augusta County Virginia. He died on Nov 17 1835 in Logan County Virginia.. He was buried in Nov 1835 in Keatley Cemetery Clear Fork,Wyoming County Virginia.

Revolutionary War patriot and second settler of present day Wyoming County,
West Virginia was born on January 17, 1748/49 in Cowpasture River, Augusta Co.,
He married Mary Elliott in 1769. He married Mary Clay, daughter of Mitchell
Clay and Phoebe Belcher, on June 25, 1788 in Montgomery Co., VA. He died on
November 17, 1835 in Wyoming Co., WV, at age 86.<http://freepages.genealogy.
rootsweb.com/~richmond/ancestors/stewa00e.htm> He was buried in Keatley
Cemetery, Clear Fork, Wyoming Co., WV; This cemetery is located in Clearfork,
near Crany. To find Keatley cemetery, take route 85 from Oceana, towards
Kopperston. At Country Junction, in Toney Fork, take a right towards Toneda
Baptist Church. It's roughly 4 or 5 miles down this road, on the left hand side of
the road. It's about 15, or 20, yards up the mountain. To make it even more
difficult, you can't see it from the road due to the brush and trees. Very hard to
find.
There is some debate on Ralph's date of birth. Some show it as December 17,
1752, others show January 17, 1749. The dates used are those copied off of his
headstone by Jim Cook of Oceana, WV.<http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.
com/~richmond/ancestors/stewa00e.htm> On February 17, 1762 in the Orphans
Court of Augusta Co., VA, 15 year old Ralph Stuart, Jr. (Stewart), orphan of James
Stuart, chose his older brother Robert Stuart as his guardian. He was at Point
Pleasant under Gen. Andrew Lewis in the "Battle of Point Pleasant", fought against
the Indians led by Chief Cornstalk on October 10, 1774. After peace with the
Indians was made, Ralph and his brother James, went on a prolonged hunting trip.
While on this trip, a band of Indians ambushed them. The following night, Ralph
and James, following the trail of the Indians, slipped up on them and killed five of
them. This act was a violation of the "Declaration of Peace" signed by the
government, and made them liable for prosecution for murder. With this charge of
murder hanging over their heads, they hid out in the woods for almost two years.
Later, Ralph told a hunting companion of this incident, and a short time later, this
"friend" and Ralph became rivals for the affections of a young lady. The "friend"
swore out a warrant for Ralph's arrest. Again, Ralph and James took off, this time
to an uninhabited area of the New River, staying there for 18 months. Later on,
the Governor of Virginia Pardoned them. When Cornwallis surrendered at Yorkton,
General Washington made Ralph one of the guard that kept the English
commander a prisoner of war on October 19, 1781.

An Early Settler on the Mountain Genealogy of the Floyd Cook Family of Boone
County, West Virginia by David Anderson Turner One of the best known members
of the Cook* family of Boone County was Floyd Cook, the subject of this
genealogy. He came from Wyoming County in the early to mid 1840s and settled
on the mountain that now bears his name, and which is shown on the area
Topographic Map of the Geological Survey, as Cook Mountain. Floyd Cook, son of
William and Catherine (Stewart) Cooke, was born 9 January 1820, in what is now
Wyoming County, West Virginia. His grandfathers, John Cooke and Ralph Stewart,
were both Revolutionary War soldiers, and both were among the first settlers of
Wyoming County. Floyd Cook married 1) about 1838 Mary Walker, born 1820 in
North Carolina, a daughter of William and Nancy (Browning) Walker. After their
marriage Floyd and Mary lived on the family land in what is now Oceana where
their first four children were born. They acquired the land on the mountain and

moved there before the formation of Boone County in 1847. Following Mary's
death in 1861, Floyd was maried a second time on 5 January 1864 in Kanawha
County to Eliza Coon, born 1822 in Mercer County. Eliza had married 1) George,
son of Adam and Hannah (Meadows) Coon. Through the fourteen children, born
over a thirty year period, Floyd Cook left well over a hundred grandchildren in
Boone County. There was not perhaps another settler who left as many
descendants. * The third and fourth generations after John Cooke dropped the
English e from the name. He settled on Cook Mountain in the head of Pond Fork,
at an early date. He m. lst Mary, daughter of William & Nancy (Browning) Walker;
2nd Eliza, widow of George Coon. Several of his sons served in the Union Army
during the Civil War. From the Boone County West Virginia History, 1990 Boone
County Genealogical Society, Inc. Boone County in the Civil War Action on Pond
Fork The third military engagement in Boone County occurred on Pond Fork of
Little Coal River, about the 17th of September 1861, between Capt. Henry C.
Pate's company of Mounted Rangers, and fifty or more Unionists (Home Guards).
The following is from the Richmond Dispatch: On the morning of the 17th, Capt.
Pate's company of Mounted Rangers assailed the entrenched camp of Unionist,
over fifty strong, at a place called Pond Fork, on Little Coal River, in Boone County,
Va. The Unionists made no resistance, with the exception of firing one gun, and
took to their heels for safety. The Rangers captured seventeen of the number -
three of whom were subsequently released, and the remaining fourteen are now in
Richmond. These fellows are said to be the party who burned the Boone Court-
house, and have been committing various depredations in the county. There is
evidence that some of the entrenched men were members of the Peytona Home
Guards, and were at Boone Court House during the fighting, but there is no
evidence that any of them actually applied the torches to the building. In fact, one
pensioner mentioned the Home Guards had removed their records from the
courthouse before it was destroyed. After the skirmish was over at the
entrenchment on Pond Fork, Captain Pate's company of Mounted Rangers caught
and arrested some of the men and accused them of treason against the
Confederate States. Some were arrested the next day when they regrouped at
Amos Workman's. In all there were 17 arrested, but only 14 of them were taken
to Richmond. Among those arrested were; William Workman; Floyd and George
Cook; Floyd, Simeon, Jackson, and Irvin Jarrell, and Harrison Wall. Three of the
Jarrells, Simeon, Jackson and Irvin died in Libby Prison during their confinement.
Floyd and George Cook were held in the Richmond prison for 18 months before
being released in February 1863. They returned home to Boone County and found
their home destroyed. Mary (Walker) Cook, Floyd's wife (George's mother), died
September 21, 1861, her death no doubt caused by her husband's arrest and the
destruction of their home. While confined in the Richmond prison, they were
examined by the commissioner that represented the area in the Virginia
Legislature. He filed the following report: The neighborhood is an unsound one. A
company was formed there that placed obstructions in the road and fortified
themselves; attempted to take possession of mountain passes on the head of
Pond Fork of Little Coal River, the most direct route to East Tennessee; and
threatened to burn the town of Oceana. I think the men ought not be discharged,
but if on further inquiry the evidence of Pack and others can be obtained they
should be brought to trial in the Confederate States Court at Wythe, or in the
County of Wyoming, Virginia. Submitted by: Janet Barker Hager

daughter and son-in-law, Shelly and Kerry Dickens of Van; and granddaughter,
Nina Mullins of Van.
He also is survived by eight siblings, six brothers and two sisters. They are Hulin
Cooke of Cottageville, Delano Cooke of St. Albans, Darrell Cooke of South Carolina,
Bobby Cooke of California, Lester Cooke of Illinois, Clarence Cooke of Twilight,
Elanor Knudson of Missouri and Travella Cooke of New Martinsburg.
His family buried him Tuesday at Memory Gardens.
"He was the best father you could ask for," Joe Cooke said. "He led by example.
He loved his family, and he believed in honesty and integrity.
"He was the kind of guy who told you not to borrow anything from anyone. If you
wanted something, but you didn't have the funds to get it, then you needed to
wait until you had the funds to get it.
"Conversely, if someone else needed something, he would let them have it or help
them get it."
Cooke, whose nickname was "Mister Democrat," is known best for his political
success in Boone County.
Cooke served on the county court, which later became the county commission,
from Jan. 1, 1967 until Dec. 31, 1968.
Next, voters elected him sheriff, a position he held from Jan. 1, 1969 until Dec. 31,
1972.
Then, he earned two stints on the county commission, the first from Nov. 17,
1976 until July 13, 1984 and the second from Jan. 1, 1985 until Aug. 10, 1987.
Finally, officials appointed him county clerk, a title he held from Aug. 10, 1987
until Dec. 31, 1998, the day he retired.
"He loved Boone County," Joe Cooke said. "He wanted to make sure Boone County
got its fair share of the cut. You can only do so much in politics, but he wanted to
do his best to help Boone County improve.
"And he did it for everyone, not just the people who voted for him. His attitude
was, 'If you voted for me, I'm going to do a good job for you. If you didn't vote for
me, I'm still going to do a good job for you.' He was a democrat, but that didn't
stop him from helping everybody."
Cooke also was a World War II veteran and VFW Post 5578 member.
"His
military service is what ended up killing him," Joe Cooke said.
"His legs were
frozen during the war. A lot of his buddies had to have their feet and legs
amputated for the same reason. But doctors told him he would be OK until he got
older, then he would have problems, which is what happened. He had circulation
problems. First, he had to have one of his legs amputated. Then, he had to have
the other one amputated."

Like many Boone County residents, Cooke enjoyed hunting and fishing.
"He
loved the outdoors," Kerry Dickens said.
Another one of his passions was automobiles. He owned the Bandytown Esso and
City Exxon stations.
"He was a heck of a mechanic," Kerry Dickens said. "I worked in the county
garage for seven years, and any time I had a problem, I would call him and he
would know exactly what to do."
