Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for many years now. I have many great photos. I'm eventually going to get them all online, but being a mother can leave me with no time of my own. I'm also on and Facebook.

My maternal grand parents are Walter Witt Cook and Mary Ellen Baker. My paternal grandparents are Ivan Brubaker and Helen Christina Maldonado.

My maternal great grandparents are Orange Claude Cook and Ida Eva Tilcock, and Artonia Franklin Baker and Barbara Allen Ragsdale. My paternal great grand parents are Fred R. Brubaker and Margarette Leffler, and Jose Magana Maldonado and Sabina Ortega.

I have never met any of my great grand parents. My father never knew his biological father, Ivan Brubaker either. He was adopted by Helen's husband at the time, Raymond Vargas. My father was about two years old when Ray adopted him.

This is my lineage, and don't honestly know to much about my father's side. They are immigrants from Mexico, and honestly it can be very frustrating trying to connect the dots, but I am getting there, slowly!

I would LOVE to connect with family, I'm always interested in my family history. I got into it because I was curious to know my father's biological father. I love doing the genealogy for my family. I want to be able to pass this along to my children so they may know where they come from and our amazing family history.

Also, please feel free to use any of the photos that I have uploaded. I use them mostly for and Find a Grave. I do ask that you please be respectful when using any of the photos because they are/were some one's loved one.

RE: # 46857777 - C. (Caswell) Witt Cook
You are tracking one tough family tree. If I am tracking the same tree there is no Addellian Early Cook in the cemetery with Caswell Witt Cook. I'm not so sure that she may have died before 1900 probably in Missouri. On the 1900 Census in Miami County, Ks. Witt is with a Dora and they have been married for 9 years.
Good luck with your searches.
