Sidney Herbert "Herbert" Cook
Birth: Mar. 28, 1881
Marshall
Harrison County
Texas, USA
Death: Mar. 17, 1966
Marshall
Harrison County
Texas, USA

Sidney Herbert Cook, (my grandfather) the oldest of 3 sons born to William Sidney Pierce Cook (1860-1926) and Clara Eugenia Beddo (1859-1928) on 28 March 1881 in Marshall, Harrison County, Texas.

"Herbert" (as he was known) first married Amelie E. Hickman (b. Feb. 1886 in Louisiana; d/o Thomas Jefferson Hickman (1844-1919) and Tranquiline J. Lecour (1844-?) on 19 December 1905. They had one child that did not survive. Amelie & Sidney divorced on 15 June 1920 in El Paso, Texas.

On 6 October 1921 Herbert married at the age of 40, Anna Frances Mehner (1900-1984)-my grandmother- and they had 3 children:
Sidney Herbert Cook, Jr. (1922-1970)
James Edward Cook (1924-2002)and
Barbara Anna Cook Roe.

Herbert was mayor of Marshall, Texas, at one time, ran a large farm, and worked as a salesman for his father at "Cook & Sons", in Marshall, Texas.

His grandchildren called him "Daddy Cook" and we still miss him dearly.

My grandfather died at the age of 84 in Marshall, Texas and I flew back with my father, James Cook, to attend the funeral. His son Sidney Herbert Cook "Sid" flew in also and the entire family was together again to say goodbye to their father. It was the only time I saw my dad cry.
