QRYTEXT: My greatgrandfather, Zachariah Cooke and his wife, Ellen(Fox) supposedly resided in the Valley View area several years in the 1880-90's. They came to TX from Calhoun Co. MS, and were in the 1880 Census at Denison, having accompanied her father Jesse H. Fox, mother, and brother James. In 1900 Census, Zachariah and family were found in Coryell County. I'm searching for three bits of information; 1)some record of their living in Cooke Co., 2)record of death and burial of their eldest child Agness, who died age six about 1882, and 3)record of William Pinckney Cooke's birth 08/04/1880, my grandfather. If the 1890 Census existed, this query would not likely be necessary.
