Surnames: cook, hewett,
Trying to trace family tree of Captain James Cook, seeking known descendents in USA,UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand. Am certain that I am one as great aunt in North Carolina has family bible but cannot read entries for ancestors who lived between 1830 and 1920. My grandmother's maiden name was Hewett and her mother's name was Emily Jane Cook. Thats as far as I have gone...back to the 1700's...Captain Cook had 3 sons...1 died in infancy, 1 died as a teenager and we obviously descended from the 3rd...whoever that son was...only other clue is that 3rd son's grandson, Richard Cook...my great grandmother's father...left UK around 1870 and ventured around world...was a railroad worker...carpenter and had worked in South Africa, Australia and western USA before winding up in Phila, PA working for the Pennsylvania railroad...entered USA thru port of San Francisco....rumored that most of family did stay behind in UK. He came to America because he felt that the industrial revolution in UK had peaked...believe that my claim is legit as Captain Cook's wife Elizabeth had sons and lived into her 90's and it appears that all of the Cook women since and down to my grandmother bore sons and lived into 90's. I realize there are millions of Cook's out there but if anyone has info on the great navigator's family...please let me know as since Captain Cook pretty much charted 2/3 of the worlds surface a long time ago.......I would like to lay legal claim to it......yes I know...Ha Ha!!!!!! Thanks...Kurt Eckard, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.....
