I am frantically searching records on Burnetta Cook born 1843 in South Carolina. upposedly Alexander Cooke of Blount Alabama is her father. Lettice Cornelius Cooke is listed as her mother. Lettice Cooke can't be her mother since she died in 1829. Records show that Alexander Cooke married again in 1830 to Polly.
Burnetta Cook had four children with William Cook from Virginia . They lived in Edgecombe County NC. After 1870, I cannot locate Burnetta Cook although she gave birth to my grandmother Pearl on 10 October 1875.
1880 my grandmother is with her father William Cook, and a her full and half blooded siblings with Mary Cook as her mother.
