David's death was on the pensioners record. Souls Chapel Cemetery is considered to be almost certain the correct place of burial. His wife is buried there, and she moved in with her son at this location at the time of David's death.

David was born on Indian and Weatherford Creeks in Wayne County, Tennessee. A short time later, the location became known as Cravens Mill, and in about 1850 became known as Martins Mills. He was the son of John Cook, Jr and Deborah Martin Cook. He moved to nearby Tishomingo County, Mississippi in 1844 following his father's death. There he married Rebecca Elizabeth Davis in 1845. David and Rebecca moved again to Upshur County, Texas sometime after the 1860 census, and remained there for the rest of their lives.

David and Rebecca had six children, all born in Mississippi:
John Reuben Cook 1847-1934
James Harvey Cook 1849-1881
Louisa D Cook 1851-
Mary Cook 1856-
William Cook 1859-
Katy Cook 1864-

David Cook death date is 9 April 1879 His wove Elizabeth done an application for pension and his death date is recorded on the pension. Tim Cook shared this information with me he wants me to drive to Pittsburg Tx where they last lived and file for a military headstone for his grave she is listing him death at Cherokee county in Pittsburg Tx. I need to see if they have a record of him being buried besides his wife. Now it might be awhile before I can actually do that but I will eventually I’m looking for live relatives in that area kin to david cook maybe my research can go farther.
