Checked on the Cemetery for you. It was the
HOOD CEMETERY, Cooke Co., Texas where James B Cooke was buried, Died May 28, 1935, Buried May 30, 1935. Also can be found on www.familysearch.org for death certificate info.
I called the Geo Carroll Funderal Homes in Gainsville, Tx. Found in archive book they said. They said if I needed any more info they would help me. I told him I was searching for the Cemetery. They were very nice. They said if you go South from Meunster ( where his daughter lives-on dc) you will be there. There is a picture on line for the Hood Cemetery with it's entrance.

Thank you Sarah,
Yes I found his death certificate and listed him on the Hood cemetery Find A Grave. The lady that listed that cemetery said she took photo's of all the stones and he wasn't listed. I have two of his children also in that cemetery. One is listed and one isn't listed. His wife should also be there, Mary Cooke was on the 1920 census and had died by the 1930 census. I've searched the Texas death certificates and can't find her. I know she was born 1857 and died between 1920-1930. She should be in Hood cemetery but not finding her. Looks like I have a lot more searching still.
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it very much. I'm not getting much help from find a grave.
Thanks again, Jenevia
