Ballard County, KY Census Records Cook Family Surname


Home > Dad's > Cook Families > Kentucky

I hate to see good research go to waste in file cabinets. I have transcribed mountains of census records over the years and had help from a number of other researchers. I offer up this information to help other Cook researchers. The folks that I can connect to include Jasper Marvin Cook and his two brothers William Arthur Cook and David Iley Cook. I keep hoping to connect to other Cook family members in the area. I do not have any additional information on other people listed here. My brick wall is Jefferson Davis Cook who died in 1916 in Ballard County, KY.

The family of George Edward Cook and Maggie Kemp Cook lived next door to my great great uncle David Iley Cook. With so few Cook Families in Ballard County, I have to wonder, were they connected?
