Shelton Cook b. 2/1830 Ky appeared on the 1850 Owen Co, Ky census with wife Mary Layton, who shortly after died. Shelton then wed 1/14/1852 Elizabeth Owen b.1/1833 ky,with permission of mother Polly Owen. Polly was listed in 1850 Owen census with daughters Athersa, Hexia, Emily, Lucy and son Allen: the only Owen(s)family in 1850 Owen Co.
Shelton Cook and Elizabeth Owen had 9 children, among them Albert Cook who married Elizabeth Keith. (See the query posted by Diane Webb for Terrill Adams, Bob Cook responses).
Other Cooks listed in close proximity to Shelton in the 1850 Owen Co census were the families of William and Cynthia Cook, Aaron and Judith Cook, Joseph and Ruth Cook. Shelton surely descended from one of these families. Of special interest is the fact that all of these families were in the tax records of Harrison Co, Ky through the late 1840's before suddenly surfacing in Owen Co, Ky.
Any help on the ancestries of Shelton Cook and Polly Owen(s)?
