Hi List, this is a request to the Cook Family of Estill Co. In Henry Winkler's Rev. War Pension, his son made oath and reference to a book belonging to the Winkler Family and in the possession of a Frances Cook as follows:
"William Winkler, aged 41, made oath on the 22nd of July 1839, that he is the 8th child of Henry Winkler deceased and Susan Winkler, surviving widow. That he knew his father, said Henry Winkler, was a pensioner on the Roll of the Kentucky Agency, at the time of his death and that said Henry Winkler died first day of July 1836. That several years previous to his father's death, he had a record of the children's ages in a book called "The Young Man's Companion". This book and record was kept by the deponent's family till his death and has since been kept in the possession of Mrs. Frances Cook and which record the deponent has this day taken out of the said book and makes it part of this deposition as follows:
"John Winkler, was born on November 7, 178(0)? Elizabeth Winkler was born on September 13th day, in the year 1782. Davis Winkler was born in September 10th day in the 1785, Susannah Winkler was born May 20th day in the year 1787, Harry (?) Winkler was born October 24th day in the year 1789." The record was very old, yellow almost illegible."
Just taking one of those long shots, hoping to find someone related to this Frances Cook, and maybe the book, "The Young Man's Companion" might still be in the Cook Family somewhere.
Thanks for any help and warmest regards,
