Daniel Pope Cook - falsely referred to as nephew to Nathaniel Pope???
In all write-ups for Daniel Pope Cook, whether in the state of Illinois, Missouri, or Kentucky, it will be stated that he is the nephew of Nathaniel Pope (1784-1850).
He obviously was married to Ninian Edwards daughter, Julia Catherine Edwards, and by default would be the husband of Julia the 1st cousin once removed from Nathaniel Pope, but I can find absolutly no blood relation between the Cooks that moved from England to Virginia and on to Scott county Kentucky and the Popes that also moved from Virgina to Kentucky.
I feel I have searched any and all resources for this so-called uncle/nephew relationship and can find no evidence.
Anyone out there have anything that might lead me to believe that the realationship between the two was NOT just an early PR stunt for these two families?
