Re: COOK, ABRAHAM 1670's VA
well. thanks interesting. OK, Abraham Cook, by his will Jul 1848 or so in Lunenburg, had a daughter, Sarah Cook, who appears to be unmarried at that time, or if married, to a Cook. Could that Sarah Cook be the mother of Abraham Crenshaw, and thus in the later generations, first cousins were marrying. Wouldn't be the first time in the majority of my families.I don't have a husband for Sarah Cook.
My Cooks did not migrate south, but stayed in the VA area for the next generation, as did my Hester's, although later generations seem to move south and west. Also with them, went some of the Walton's, who continued for at least two generations to marry into the Cook's and Hester's. They are a tangled bunch. At this point, I don't have much Crenshaw info, and those that I have don't seem to interact with the bunch, but that may be lack of knowledge.
I don't have an Ann or Nancy Hester that could have married a Crewnshaw, but I make no assumptions of having all the right info, either. I start to track Cooks in New Kent Co and move through Hanover, Louisa,Caroline and Surry Co NC.
My Benjamin Cook line, son of Abraham I, line follows through to William N and thenElizabeth Cook, d/o William N and Keziah Burch Cook, married Ed. Franklin in Charlotte Co VA and moved west to Campbell Co VA (not far west ). So this group was in Charlotte in migration to Surry Co NC
Actually, I come from two of Abraham Cook's (I) (d. 1720) kids..Benjamin and Abraham II. Abraham II's line of mine is through daughter Barbara Cook m. Robert Hester. thier daughter, Agnes Hester, m. Rev. Simeon Walton.There are later Walton/Cook/Hester marriages as well.
It would seem they are a tangled group, including at least more than one McAllister in the pile, although I'm not sure the McAllister maiden names can be verified.
