Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history from the time I was a little girl, listening to the stories my father and mother told of their parents and grandparents. This love of history became my passion in life. I am by profession an archaeologist, historian, and author. I have been researching my ancestry for 25+ years, a passion that continues.

The lineage starts out with William Cook who died in England in the late 18th century and then proceeds onto his son William who lived in Rhode Island and then David moved to N.Y. and Joseph Cook moved to IL. The bulk of the book is the life story of David Cook and Ella Maye Jenkins.

RE: Mary Jane Wear Dunsworth Huddleston
Hello Deborah
I did see a family tree with Henry Jarvis as Armina's husband but I don't remember the name of the tree. I have to look again on Ancestry. I just guessed that Minnie might be a nick name for Armina. I don't know who Henry Jarvis was I will look him up.

RE: Mary Jane Wear Dunsworth Huddleston
Hello Deborah Cook
I thought Minnie was Armina
I know Minnie was married to a Stroud Welborn
and had children, I also know Minnie died in Pima Arizona buried in Kansas. I can't find anybody who ever heard of Wesley Simmonds but they were married in Hancock Illinois.

Thank you

Had no idea
I was aways told my Father had several brothers and sisters. So sad to see they died so young. This is the 1st time I ever learned anything about my dads side of the family

Deborah, I think your my 1st cousin
Hi Deborah. My name is Shawn Dunsworth Moss (Cook). I am the son of Laurence Dunsworth Moss (Cook). I have been searching for this side of my family for most of my life. I am so excited. I also have a sister named Cassie Moss (Cook) Gilmore. My adopted Grandparents John and Ruby Moss Died in the 70's. My father Laurence died in 1970 In a Drilling Rig Accident. I never knew he died the same year as his real father Fred Dunsworth Cook. I hope to hear from you soon
