  • Name John Wesley Cook  [1
    • Evelyn Cook Hall notes in The Cook Book that family rumor indicated that John Wesley Cook or Cooke was of Irish descent and that his father was a doctor. Hall was unable to substantiate the rumors. If the family was Irish, it stands to reason they were not Catholic, as indicated by John Wesley Cook's name. I was able to find two families in Culpeper County in the 1820 Census who had male children at the right age: one headed by Alexander Cook and the other by Alfred Cook. In the 1830 Census, possible fits include two families headed by men each named Charles Cook.

      Hall gives Cook's name with the alternative "Cooke" spelling. It is hard to say how she determined the name had once been "Cooke," but it is possible, if not proven.
