Obituary from Grapeland Messenger, published January 18, 1916:

MRS. M. E. COOK DEAD

Rock hill, Jan 2.—Mrs. M. E. Cook died at the home of C. M. Streetman, Wednesday, Dec. 29, at 12:30 a.m.

She was laid to rest in the Antrim cemetery Thursday at 3:30 p.m., services being conducted by Bro. C. A. Campbell ( Cyrus Albynus Campbell
). She had been afflicted with rheumatism for the past fourteen years. During these years she was helpless most all the time. Dropsy set up about six weeks ago, which hastened her demise.

She was born in Tolbert Co., Ga., September 2, 1833, and lived in Georgia until 1888, moving to west Florida and resided there until 1905. The remainder of her life was spent in Texas. She was baptized into the Free Will Baptist Church at the age of fifteen and has lived a true Christian life. She has made her home with C. M. Streetman, her son-in-law, for a number of years.

She leaves a daughter, two sons, and a host of grand-children and friends to mourn her loss.
