Jean, you mention a William Rook who was living in Laurens Co., SC. My early Rook ancestor was Unity Rook in Laurens and Union Counties. Unity md Jonathan Holcombe. Do you have any children for William. Unity had bros. John and Elias who left Laurens and Union Cos for parts unknown to me. Do you have any of these in your line of Rooks. At the same time frame there were Benjamin, Emanuel and William Rook in Laurens, Newberry or Union Cos. These counties come together in a point so it was easy to be in either county. Thanks. I would appreciate any help!
