Do you have much info on Ephraim Cook? From my recent Rootsweb search, I find that you are a descendent of Thomas. If my research serves me right, Ephraim Cook was the father of Thomas Jefferson Cook (dob: abt 1843). Thomas Jefferson Cook, husband (#2) of Emma L. (dob: 1849) and the father of Theresa, Pierce, Mary & Corinne Cook, in addition to being the s-father to John B.(my g-father) and Talbert V. Pearce. Thomas J. Cook's first wife was Mary Ellen Pearce (dob: abt 1846; dod: 8/16/1880). Any additional info you could provide me will be most appreciative. Thanks!
