John H. Cook

John H. Cook was the son of Martha Agnes Nuttall and John Cook.

John married Amelia Eliza Goodrich on March 17, 1909 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Millie was a small, wiry, quick person and John was a large strong man.

Soon after they were married they moved on their homestead at Hayden, Utah. Tragedy struck almost from the start. Their first and third child died in infancy and their second child, Wayne, was born premature, weighing only 2 1/2 pounds. He was an invalid and sat in his wheelchair all his life. This was a "great care" for Millie and John. John freighted on the old Price Road for a living, leaving Millie and her small children alone.

When Wayne was about four years old, John spent about a year in Salt lake City where he could get medical help for him. John had a job grading the grounds around the Capital building which had been just built. Wayne was able to walk some with braces and help for a few years jack was one year old and was taken care of by Uncle Roy and Aunt Sarah Goodrich while his parents were in Salt Lake City. John only freighted during the winter for a few years longer, until trucks took over. Their bees didn't do much in Roosevelt but the family was contented with their two-room home and they worked hard to clear the land and Millie made a beautiful garden.

In 1924, they purchased a 1919 model T Ford and usually had some kind of automobile after that. Radios came in shortly after that. They also had a phonograph and Millie enjoyed playing many classical pieces on it.

Edith and Agnes, the girls in the family, were born in their Roosevelt home.
