  • Name Sarah Ann Cook 
    Born Apr 1842  Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    • The 1900 census lists her as born April 1842 which correlates with her age on the first census taken after her birth. Her death certificate lists her birth as 9 June 1834, her age is listed but the second number is smeared: “7[?] yrs. 2 mos. 28 da.” Her son was the informant and may have guessed at her age. Her parents were not old enough to have had a child in 1834.

    • Butler County, Alabama, had a major loss of records in an 1853 courthouse fire. No marriage record found in Butler or Pike Counties, Alabama.[1] Estate file of Mary Holland lists her heirs, including “Elizabeth Cook, wife of James C. Cook.”[2] Elizabeth is likely the female 15–19 in her father, James's, household in 1840. James & Elizabeth’s first child, Sarah, was born in April 1842. Based on those dates, they were likely married between 2 June 1840 and sometime in July 1841. Tom King, a descendant of William Benson & Sarah Cook, says he has copies of a Bible that lists their marriage as 8 July 1841. He has not supplied a copy for me. This date fits in the time frame above.[3]
