Behn Cook was the oldest of three children born to my gg-grandparents: Abner Atkinson Cook and Emily Roper Coleman; He was the brother of my great-grandfather, William Sidney Pierce Cook (1860-1926) and a very successful surveyor in Marshall, Texas.

Behn married Eudora Ann Melton on December 22, 1875 and had two daughters:
(1) Elizabeth Alma Cook Signaigo (1876-1947) and
(2) Mary Ethelene "Ethel" Cook (1879-1896).

Behn died at the age of 75 years in Marshall, Texas on December 9, 1932, due to nephritis caused by uremic poisoning.
