Seeking info on parents of Elijah William Cook(e). In 1880 Elijah was living with his mother, Margaret ? Cook McLeod, age 44 and a widow, in Bynum, Chatham Co., NC. O April 22, 1882 Elijah William married a neighbor, Lovedy Frances Williamson, daughter of Martha ? and William J. Williamson. In 1900 Elijah & Lovedy were living in the Baldwin Township of Chatham Co., NC, with their 7 children including my grandfather Elijah Tilden, b 11-14-1886. Elijah & Lovedy moved to Wilmington, NC, and died in 1905. At the time of their deaths the sons remained in Wilmington area, but the youngest a daughter, Minnie McKinley Cook b 1898, went to Cedar Falls, in Randolph Co., NC to live with her Aunt Jenny Glass. At that time her grandmother (Elijah's mother) was living with them. I have NO idea which side of the family Jenny was from. Later on family moved to Durham, NC. What I would like to know is who was Elijah's father, who according to the census was born in Vermont. When did he die, or did they divorce? What was Margaret's maiden name? Also I need info on Martha & William J. Williamson. One more hint? J. W. & Gurly Jane Culberson were the witnesses to Elijah & Lovedy's marriage. Are they kin? I would appreciate any info as I have no idea where to search for any additional information. Thanks in advance for any help. You may email me MyGenealogy@webtv.net
