Rev. Elijah Cook, of Cook's Prairie, MI, died Jan 31, 1872, aged 78 years. He was converted when fourteen years and soon moved from Oneida Co. NY, to Clarkson, where his home welcomed the fathers of those times. In 1835, he moved to Michigan, locating at Cook's Prairie, where he saw the need of ministerial labor, and took up the work. He was ordained in 1845, and his zealous labors were crowned with success. About 1858 he united with the Girard church. He and his companion of fifty-seven years, were highly esteemed."
