             v.     GEORGE COOK, b. Bef. 1882; d. Bef. 1900.

Notes for GEORGE COOK:
No official documentation of George Cook has been found.  The name is from Betty Cook, 
who remembers hearing her father had a brother named George who died before she was 
born.  Henry Cook's obituary indicates he had one child who died in infancy, which I presume 
to be George.  A single headstone is reportedly present in Bethel Cemetery, where Henry and Rebecca Cook are buried, reading simply "Cook."  This is likely an young child's grave.  George must have been born before 1882, as Thomas Cook's birth certificate indicates he is the sixth child born of Rebecca Cook.
