Sept 12 1929 Mexico Independent

Henry W. Cook passed away Friday, September 6 just before noon, following a serious illness of several weeks duration. He was born on a farm near Mexico 75 years ago, the son of Ansel S. and Hannah Wells Cook. At the early age of 18 he first became associated with the mercantile business, when he was engaged by a prominent drug establishment at that time, Kulison & Co. Later he was associated with J. B. Driggs, going from there to Grand Rapids Michigan then returning to Oswego NY. While serving his apprenticeship in these various activities the call of his own home town was constantly urging him to return, and heeding this call he returned to Mexico where he resided for the remainder of his life. In early manhood he experienced that religious change. Soon after this he united with the First Methodist Church of this village, and has ever remained a consistent member thereof, filling official positions in both Church and Sunday School with marked ability, While during his later years he suffered much through physical disabilities, yet he ever met his friends and acquaintances with his genial smile and kindly Words of greeting. Mr Cook keenly enjoyed life here with his friends, of who he had many, but ever lived as one who looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Henry W. Cook was first married to to Adella Thompson. To them was born one son, Allan, Mrs, Cook died in the late 80's and about 1890 Mr Cook married Emma Hewitt and to them was born one son Lovell H. The deceased is survived by his widow and two sons, Allan and Lovell H. , a sister Hattie Hewitt and a brother Edward. Interment at Mexico Village Cemetery.
