From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Some Descendants of Millard Fillmore Cook

Son of Millard Fillmore
and Fannie Thomas Cook

I scanned Marguerite Cook Clark's photos and/or newspaper clippings pertaining to three Bienville Parish Cook families. The family of Napoleon Bonaparte and Sophronia Pauline Porter Cook (her father's immediate family), the family of Joseph W. and Josie Bryan Cook (Josie was her grandmother's sister), and the family of Millard Fillmore and Fannie Thomas Cook. 

Public Member Trees at indicate that Joseph W., Napoleon Bonaparte, and Millard Fillmore Cook might be first cousins. I say might be as we should always do our own research to substantiate the facts.  

If these trees are correct, these three men are grandsons of Phillip Henry Cook, Sr. and his wife Mary Campbell Irwin. The fathers of these men would be John Hancock Cook (Napoleon Bonaparte Cook), Samuel Boggs Cook (Joseph W. Cook), and Jacob Oscar Cook (Millard Filmore Cook). 

Today's post contains obituaries of some descendants of Millard Filmore Cook and Fannie E. Thomas Cook. At Find A Grave, their children are listed as June Millard, Seaborn Arledge, Annie Laurie, Claude T., Fred F., and Herbert Clarence Cook.

Issues from the years 1919 to 1922 can be found at this site. These issues are a virtual diary of this Cook family's comings and goings during those years.
