General Notes for Child William COOK

William was a shoe maker by trade. In 1848 he purchased 160 acres of land in section 32 of Franklin Township in Grand County, Indiana. Here with the help of his boys they soon cleared a farm and built a log house e where he and his family lived constantly for more than half a century.

William cast his first ballot for president in 1829, voting for Andrew Jackson, but since that time he regularly voted the Republican ticket.

In 1849, he went in company with Nathan Small, Gideon Small, Joshua Marshall and Eli Hunt to the first election held in the territory including Sims and Franklin townships, about one mile Northeast of Herbst, Indiana. It being a rainy day, the ballot box was placed in a hollow stump, there being about 20 voters present. In 1902, William was the only person living who cast his ballot in the old hollow stump that day .

He never brought suit against any one and only once has he been a defendant, in which case total costs were 10 cents. He never has been juror, or witness in court, having been summoned once, and on that occasion his testimony was not called for.

When about 25 years old he formed the habit of tobacco, which he continued till he was 72 years old. He then renounced the habit. He has always been a total abstainer from all kinds of alcoholic liqueurs.

Soon after moving to Grant County, William and Ruth went hunting for bees. They found a swarm in a hollow beech stump. The stump was let dow n and sawed off on either side of the bees and taken home where it wa s set up .The bees increased until they had a large Apiary, and plenty of honey and to spare. In 1902, there were yet two hives descended f rom the old beech stump .

In 1883, William went by way of Chicago and Kansas City to Baxter Springs, Cherokee County, Kansas to visit his daughter, Charity who live d there to that time. He remained with her from February till August o f same year. On his return home he stopped with his sister Rachel Jones near Oskaloosa, Iowa and spend a week her. This is the first time h e had been out of the state of Indiana, since he came from North Carol ina in his early boyhood days.

On Nov 6 ,1900, he was taken to the polls and voted for McKinley at ag e 97. At age 98 he voted for Roosevelt.

A memorial of William Cook by Nathan W. Cook

Copied from obit; At the end of a a clam winter day, under the canopy of a beautiful starlit twilight, and at the close of the last day o f the year our friend and relative, who was in the eve of a century of useful, exalted life, passed from this earth as peacefully as the leaves are wafted downward by the gentle breeze at the close of an autumn day. May the example of his life be to us a model by which we may walk the path. He so lived his life on earth , that an enemy was unknow n to him, and a falsehood was the sting of an adder. He had the patien ce and fortitude, which could be borne only by a true disciple of Christ . His faith in God was demonstrated in his every day walks of life. In his younger days he was a faithful student of the bible.

Husband's General Notes

Joseph Cook, the oldest child of Isaac Cook and Charity Wright, was born Dec 23, 1763 at the Bush River Monthly Meeting in Newberry County, South Carolina. During the Revolutionary War, he was taken prisoner by a band of pirates, who attempted to force Joseph to enter their b and or suffer the death penalty. Joseph, being a member of the Societ y of Friends, as well as loyal to his county, refused to join thier ba nd. While the pirates were parleying as to, what to do with him. Mar y Herbert, Joseph's future wife, came along and stepping in among the m told the pirates that Joseph belonged to her, and for them to let hi m go free.

As they could not see fit to do this, Mary grabbed Joseph up in her ar ms and started off with him. Thinking she would not be able to go far . the Capitan of the band shouted, "When you put him down, we will sta rt shooting" As a result of this decision on their part. Mary promptl y preceded to carry him out of range of their guns, and in all probabi lities this was all that saved his life.

At this time, Joseph was about 17 years old and Mary was about one yea r younger. After hearing this story, his own son Peter, said to his fa ther, " No wonder thee married her, father ."

Husband's General Notes

Joseph owned an 80 acre farm two miles southwest of Roseburg, Indiana. He was engaged in the manufacture of tile for several years and wa s quite successful. In 1864 he was pressed into the service of the Army while his wife lay dying on her death bed. Joseph was conscientiously opposed to war and was released by paying the government $300. dollars. His wife died March 1, 1864. They were all members of the Friends Church at Maple Run and are buried at the cemetery in Marion, Indiana. He died at his home, two miles South West of Roseburg, Indiana .

Two of the daughters Ruth and Emeline not returning from school one evening, and since there was a unbroken forest of several Hundreds acres between the home and school, a search was made by neighbors all night .The girls were found the next morning at the home of the only neighbor who had not been notified.
