  • Notes 
    • He arrived from Ohio 1 May 1865 and located at Colo, Story Co., Iowa. He later bought a farm, about 1878, in the center of Richland Twp., Story Co., just northwest of the town now called Fernald Stat­ion. This was his homestead until about 1908 when he moved to Nevada. Art Couser lives there now.

      He was a man of quiet and unpretentious habits, a most kind and affectionate husband and father, always careful of his home and fam­ily, a good citizen, honest and upright in all of his dealings and his character was unassailed. He was a member of the Friends Church and was devoted to his religion. Everyone knew him as "Mike" Cook.

      He married 21 Sept. 1867 to Rosanna (Rose Ann) Elwood, daughter of William Elwood and Margaret Cooper McCamie. She was born 2 Dec. 1848 in Monroe Twp., near Farmland, Randolph Co., Ind. She came to Story Co., Iowa in 1858 and settled in New Albany Twp. with her wid­owed mother and brothers, where she grew to young womanhood. When she was 16 years old she was converted to the Methodist Church. She died 9 Apr. 1936 at her home at 1035 K Ave. in Nevada, Story Co., Iowa, of pneumonia. She was buried, with Henry Michael, at Oakhill Cemetery in Richland Twp., Story Co., Iowa.

      Henry Michael Cook died in Nevada, Story Co., Iowa 26 Aug. 1910 at 4:00 a.m. of a paralytic stroke. He had been in declining health for three years. [3]
