I am trying to help a friend (Valerie Clancy nee Cook) with her family history. I have information on her father his name was Gordon Young Cook. Gordon's father was Samuel Young Cook. I have also found reference to a William Young Cook from the Pembina Valley area.
The middle name of "Young" in all three names seems to be too much to be a coincidence. Samuel Young Cook was born about 1854.
I sure could use some help from a "good samaritan" with knowledge of the "Cook Family History".
I would like to know what the connection between Samuel and William might be. Further, it would be great to get more information on William's background or ancestors if there is a connection.
in advance for any help you may be able to give me,
