Re: Blacknall/Cooke/Foster families, Franklin County NC
You are right. Typo Thomas died 1837,I have August. Cemeteries can be illusive.I'm sending you the paper I have.
Mary Cooke Debnam parents are Thomas Debnam and Ann Cooke and Ann's parents are Mordecai Cooke and Frances Whiting of Gloucester Co VA.Thomas B lived in Gloucester until around 1796 and moved to Granville Co whenMary died in childbirth with George in 1795. Mary's sister Elizabeth married a Henry Richard Cooke.I don't know where Richard and Henry Richard come into the picture.
Oak Grove, which Foster Family lived there? Louisa J.Foster and Thomas J Blacknall was married at Locust Grove in Franklin Co but their deaths in Henderson. There has to be a family cemetery somewhere.
