Birth: May 7, 1809
Death: Jan. 4, 1891

Rev John Cook was born 7 May 1809 in Alton, Belknap, New Hampshire. He died in Burnham, Waldo, Maine and his obituary appeared in the Morning Star published on 2 Apr 1891.

Mary Jane (Adams) Cook married Rev. John Cook on 8 Nov 1846.

As supplied by Cemetery Hopper on Dec 14, 2007.

"His parents were Jacob and ___(Hubbard) COOK. He received his education from the common school, before he was fifteen years of age. Before he was sixteen, his father moved on a new lot in Exeter, ME, where he was educated to work with his hands so effectively, that he could support himself and family by working half the time and have the rest for preaching in destitute places without hire. He began to preach at age 20, and received license in 1833, and ordained June 26, 1837. He had revivals, baptized 141 converts in twelve different towns, assisted in organizing seven or eight churches and married ninety-eight couples. He was chosen pastor of the Burnham church at its organization, July 2, 1857. During the War, their church edifice was built. He attended every monthly conference since 1860. He was married Dec. 29, 1833 to Miss Sally P. Kenisten (deceased). Nov. 8, 1846, he was married again. He had nine children, five surviving at time of writing (1887)."
