I am attaching another treasured photo, taken in 1892, of the Cook Family, of Potterville. Cyrus Cook, and his wife, Caroline Ellsworth, are seated in the center, their four sons stand behind them, and their daughters-in-law sit beside them. The woman on the left, Sarah Cook, and the gentleman on the right, Oliver Cook, are my husband's great-Grandparents. This photo was given to us by our cousin, Kathy Manchester Jones - Deed Eddy

Dear Joyce,
That was fast! I was so pleased to see The Cook Family of Potterville up on the website this morning. I realize that I forgot to mention Caroline's maiden name, which is Ellsworth. She is the daughter of Oliver and Mary Keith Ellsworth, who came to Orwell from Connecticut.

Thanks again for putting this all together,
Deed Eddy

  Wife of Joel D Cook is Rhoda Upson. He married two Upson sisters - see the Upson genealogy for descendents.   I also have a connection to Carolina Ellsworth Cook, if Worldconnect is to be believed. She is part of the Hull family through Oliver-Charles-Charles-Samuel-Martha Gaylord-Elizabeth Hull-George Hull and Thamzen Mitchell.    In the 1850 census, Cyrus also had a daughter Emma age 1. Presumably she died before this picture was taken.

Dear Joyce,

I just revisited this photo and saw Thomas Koch's comment.

I have the original photograph and on the back it says, "Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Cook and their sons and son's wives taken since death of their daughter Mrs. George Stocking, Wahoo, Neb."  Mrs. George Stocking (Emma Cook) died 17 Jul 1892 in Wahoo, NE.
