Re: need info for John L Cook born 1864 Missouri

In Reply to: need info for John L Cook born 1864 Missouri by Matthew Cook of 16051

Hi Matthew, I am not related to this family, just did some looking for you.

I believe the John L Cook married to Mary L is really Johnson Lee/Johnston Lee Cook.

He was first married to Amanda per the 1900 census and I found a married record for this marriage. They must have been divorced, because by the 1910 census, John was with Mary L and Amanda had remarried.

I believe your Mary L was Mary L Williams who first married a Stump. This marriage ended in divorce per the 1900 census.

I saw on your rootsweb posting that you were looking for William born in AR. I don't believe he belongs to this family. The census records always shows Mary had only one child living and that would be the Stump boy. A Cook boy was never shown with John and Mary on census records. Notice on the 1910 census record, John and Mary were only married 2 months. I've included their marriage record.

I hope this will help. Were you really looking for the William born in AR? If you want me to try and find him, just let me know. I feel sure he is not part of the John and Mary L family.

Here are the records I've included:
