Amos Cook, 1857-1929, Unknown Connection
I found Amos Cook buried at the same cemetery as my ancestors - Jefferson Davis Cook & his son David Iley Cook. I have no idea if they are related or if they just happened to both be buried in the same cemetery, Bethleham Baptist Church Cemetery near Wickliffe, Ballard County, KY. Of course, the church records burnt in a fire and I am unable to locate any newspaper obits for either of these men.
Here is what I have put together so far:
Amos COOK was born in May 1856 in Kentucky. He died on 19 Nov 1929 in East Cairo, Ballard County, KY, USA. The cause of death was double pnuemonia. He was buried on 20 Nov 1929 in Bethleham, Wickliffe, Ballard County, KY, USA. Death Cert # Vol. 61, certificate: 30355 Informant - Oscar Webb. Father listed as Seeb Cook.
