I reread the info in the book Wakefield Memorial. From the book I can follow John Wakefield from Yorkshire, England b 1616 d 1673 Biddeford, York, Maine then James Wakefield who married a Rebecca in Salem, MA? pg 119 they had a son Samuel Wakefolield b1702 and we start seeing York County, Maine his son Samuel Wakefield 1738 and his son Samuel Wakefield 1768 and his son Elisha Wakefield that list he was born in 1809 and his number is 120 although there is no 120 in the book. John>James>Samuel>Samuel>Samuel>Elisha and it is Elisha who married Sarah Cook b1791 and d1883? I was thinking that this Sarah could stem from Mary Cooke b jan 12 1648 d 25 Aug 25 1702 who was the daughter of John Cooke who married Sarah. Maybe one of Mary's siblings is in this lineage? Mary Cooke married Philip Tabor and this is my branch. John Cooke was born 1606 Leiden, Zuid, Holland and d Nov 23, 1695. He had siblings that came later with their mother Hester Mahieu. The records in Holland confirm names dates etc. John Cooke did July 15, 1696. This branch of the family is heavy in Dartmouth, Mass and Rhode Island history. Records from the New England Historical Society might be of benefit. By the way I do not know where your Elias arrived from I assume not from England-and it appears the history for your branch of Wakefields began in Maine with John Wakefield with some references to Salem, Mass-which is where most of the Cooke's were and at Rhode Island. Or do you mean they moved from York County, Maine? This could be your problem with the Wakefield book. Good luck-CindyJohn Cooke maintained a ferry between Dartmouth and Rhode Island or should I say built one?
