I am looking for the family of Henry E. Cook, b. 1848 in British East India (in Lucknow). His father's name is listed as Henry Edmund Cook and the only record that I have with a mother's name lists her as Alice Sharpe. The story is that Henry E. and his sister were sent to England to school. While they were there, the rest of the family died (probably in some epidemic). I have not been able to find any birth records of any of the siblings or any record of the father, Henry Edmund. Were there particular schools that the children would have been sent to - they were not orphans when they went and I have not found records in the Asylum records? Thanks for any suggestions.
