On Gade Matthew CROOK's death record it states his parents were James CROOK and Martha SOUTHERN.If you're looking at two different James CROOKs in the area, which one was married to Martha?
There was a G.M. CROOK that served out of TN during the Civil War.You might want to send for his pension record.I find that pension records usually have more genealogical info. in them than service records.
Hmmm, this is interesting.There's a marriage record for James B. CROOK to Martha J. SOUTHERN dated 22-July-1844 in Fayette, TN.On Gade Matthew's death record it says he was born in 1842.That might be incorrect.
Possibly Gade is really Gabe?There's this family in the 1850 census for Fayette, TN: CROOK, James B. age 29 b. VA Martha J. age 24 b. TN Gabriel M. age 4 b. TN Saluthard A. age 2 b. TN
I think that's probably the family you are looking for.
I believe this is also them in 1870 in Bartholomew, Drew Co, AR: CROOK, James age 49 b. SC Martha J. age 44 b. TN Salathial age 21 b. TN Benjamin age 14 b. TN James B. age 9 b. MS John P. age 6 b. MS
