I'm searching for any information for Julius or Lee Julius COOK b. abt. 1830, who married Rebecca Nix b. abt. 1830.

On the 1860 census, they were living in Carroll County, Georgia. He is listed as Julius, his birthplace is given as Georgia and his birth year as abt. 1825. Her birthplace is given as Georgia and her birth year as abt. 1830.

On the 1870 census, they were living in Cleburne County, Alabama. He is listed as L J, his birthplace is given as North Carolina, and his birth year as abt. 1832. Her birthplace is given again as Georgia, abt. 1830.

The 1880 census finds them in Fayette County, Tennessee. He is listed as Lee J., born abt. 1830 in North Carolina. Rebecca's birth year is given as abt. 1827.

They had the following children, all born in either Georgia or Alabama:

Millie E - b. 16 May 1853, d. 13 Feb 1924 Texas, m. Ephram B Ivey

William H - b. abt 1854, d. unknown, m. Eliza Unknown

John Merrill - b. Jul 1865, d. abt 1906 Tennessee, m. Rebecca Jane Terry

Gracy A - b. abt 1867, d. bef 1910 Tennessee, m. John Belt

Sarah Cinthia Rebecca - b. Oct 1869, d. bef 1910, m. J Wiley Adams

Lawson P Cook, the son of Lee Julius and Rebecca Nix Cook, is my great-grandfather. I would love to have any additional information on his brothers and sisters, and especially his parents. If any of them appear in your family trees, please post here or e-mail me at
