RE: family
I am still reading.... I have some info to add

Della Derrick Russell Find A Grave Memorial# 27169563
Burial:
Cochran Cemetery
McMinn County
Tennessee, USA

Samuel Houston (Find A Grave Memorial# 7239104
) Derrick's wife, Harriett Lou Ella Martin, I think she may be Find A Grave Memorial# 55046972. Still needs verifying. Let me know if you need info on their children.

Most all the info that I have comes from Houston's daughter Lucy Gay. I met her about 20 years ago on a visit.

Next, my great grandmother, Emily Jane Derrick Givens. Burial info should be
Hollywood Cemetery
Gastonia
Gaston County
North Carolina, USA
and spouse was Joseph Henry Givens.

James Larkin Cooks father in law was a Wilson Peeler, I am wondering if it is the same Wilson Peeler that is my new step-2nd great grandfather...


Ed Cook is James Edgar Cook Find A Grave Memorial# 27169100
and Melvina Culberson Cook Find A Grave Memorial# 27169101, there are several children buried there and a good obit on their daughter Rosa Gook Gibson

Cook Connection
Hi - So sorry for the delay in responding, I have been so busy with my grandfather in the hospital and I have gotten so far behind!

I am so excited to have found you. First, I want to say how much I like your blogspot, I have been having fun looking it.

I have some questions, I am just going to address them as I come to them while I am on your site.

First, there is an article about JAW Cook that you have posted, what is that from? I notice it says his parents are Leonard and Netta Carolina Cardin. Do you know anything about them? I have James & Martha and another connection, George Wilson does as well. However, I did not site my source in my records, so I could be wrong. Anyway, I think that they may be Find A Grave Memorial# 43777567 and Find A Grave Memorial# 43777718.

Another reason that I asked about the article is that I would like to read more, it ends on my 2nd great grandmother, Mary Ann Cook Derrick, I was curious about what it said about her.

Do you have JAW Cook Confederate Veteran application, I do have it somewhere and I will share with you, if you do not have. Turns out he was born in Meck. Co., N.C. where I live.

Do you know where JAW Cook is buried and his 2nd wife Eri Bowers Holcomb. My records show Eleazer, but his grave cannot be found.

I do not know anything else about Eri, parents, other marriages, etc.

BIG Question: Mary Ann Cook Derrick (my 2nd great grandmother), I do not know anything about Wilson D. Peeler (I think he is Find A Grave Memorial# 69409202). I do not know anything about this marriage (not that it didn't happen - I just know very little about her). Your records give both her marriages that same wedding date (which is the date I have to Gus), is he maybe her 2nd husband, her children were born in 1880's with Derrick has name. Anyway, I appreciate any info you have on this!

Holy cow - I just got to the pic of my 2nd great grandmother - (and Wilson Peeler) - I have NEVER seen a photo of her. WOW...so excited. Can you tell I am writing this as I go. Is there anyway that I can get a copy of this...Yeah...so happy to have found it!

I went back to looking at the picture of her, I think it answers my question due to the ages of the couple. It looks like she married him after Gus died in 1891. Maybe that is why I am having trouble with her grave, I did not know about Peeler!



I know this is a lot but it was the questions that I came up, I appreciate your help!!
your cousin,
Melanie Wynter
