Genea-Musings: Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - A Family's Increase

Following Randy's Seaver's instructions for Sat. Night Genealogy Fun

Genea-Musings: Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - A Family's Increase

Wm. Green Cook & Jane Bell King

I chose my Cook great grandparents
William Green Cook(1854-1944) and Jane Bell King(1853-1921)

I made a genealogy report of descendants in FTM 10.

They had 6 children(all are deceased-I only met one--my grandfather who died when I was 2 yrs old)

They had 15 grandchildren(all but 3 are deceased--I met 8 of them)

They had 32 great grandchildren(all living-I've met 12)

They had 25+ great great grandchildren(2 deceased)

They currently have at least 8+ GGG grandchildren of which I'm aware.

Wm G Cook's grandchildren lost touch with each other because they really never had family gatherings after 1960s.
There are Rowland, Graves, Cook, Hargrove, Brannon and other great great grandchildren I'm sure with whom I've not been in contact.

Facebook has been helpful to get back in touch with several cousins.

Seated: Wm. Green Cook & wife Jane Bell King, Son John Lemuel Cook & his wife Malissa Gee
Standing: Son-in-law, Charlie Thompson & Daughter, Rebecca L. Cook, Wm. Clarence Cook, Thomas Dewitt Cooke and Eliza A. Cook.

    I just started looking into my family tree, and came across your site. Wm. Clarence Cook was my grandfather Luther Cook's dad. It's really great to see this family picture. My grandfather use to talk about Wm. Green Cook who lived with them in his later years.
