Elizabeth Forbis & Henry Cook b 1769, Barren Co, Kentucky

Who are Elizabeth Forbis's parents?

I've been researching this Forbis branch for many months and have come to the conclusion that I need to scratch what I have and start over. Too much conflicting information so I'm starting where I have documented proof.

I have read in "DAYS, DEEDS AND DESCENDANTS OF CAPTAIN VALENTINE COOK Researched and compiled by Rachael I. Klemm":

Henry Cook, son of Captain Valentine Cook, was born in 1769 in Rockingham Country, Virginia. He, along with his brother John, was living in what was then Lincoln County, Virginia (now Lincoln County, Kentucky) for at least five years prior to Kentucky's Statehood.

Henry married Elizabeth Forbis and, by 1800, was living in Barren County, Kentucky where they spent the remainder of their days. Henry received a Land Grant of 200 acres dated July 26, 1799, plus an additional 200 acres.

The Cook Bible, owned by Mr. J.M. Cook of 803 East Side Court, Horse Cave, Kentucky, lists the following dates for the births of Henry and Elizabeth Cook and their children:

Elizabeth Cook born August 15, 1769
Henry Cook born 1769
Margaret (Peggy) Cook born November 9, 1786
William F. Cook born March 27, 1789
George Cook born November 8, 1790
Jonathan F. Cook born April 13, 1793
Sara Cook born November 17, 1794
Elizabeth Cook born June 19, 1796
Charlotte (Lotty) Cook born August 23, 1799
Polly Cook born September, 1797
James Cook born October 4, 1804
Jesse Cook born March 24, 1807
Elijah Cook born October 4, 1809
Polly Cook died October 4, 1804

Who are Elizabeth Forbis's parents?
