W C Cook & James P Cook Witnesses on Rutherfotd Co TN Deed(1860)

As happens pretty much every time that I publish an "everything I have so far" listing of events and sources for a family, I found W C Cook and James P Cook listed as witnesses to a deed.  Elisha W Hendrix is deeding land to William Pope in 1860 Rutherford County Tennessee.  It's almost like the process of writing and publishing causes new info to surface.  Or in this cause it is old info that I am just now finding thanks to the FamilySearch Full Text Search tool. I'm not complaining.

Below is my attempt at transcribing the deed.  Check the deed at the link in the source below.

Timeline of events 1858-1888 For Family of Wm Clifford Cook


To get the big picture of what happened to  William Clifford Cook, his wife Elizabeth, and their descendants between 1858 and 1888, a timeline was made using all of the sourced facts occurring to the family during that period.

In 1857, a year before the beginning of this timeline,  W C and Elizabeth had lost two children--son David V Cook at around 7 years old and daughter Rebecca at age 8.  Thankfully, that same year, they were also blessed with the birth of their youngest child, Cass B Cook.

Still unsure if W C Cook went to Arkansas and was THE "William C Cook" involved in the canceled land transaction.  The years in question(1871-1874) were ones in which tax records for the Rutherford or Bedford Co TN were not required to be retained and no longer exist. No record of a William C Cook living in Lawrence Co Arkansas has been found.  The land transaction papers would lead one to believe that the man by that name was a resident there and had been for at least a few years before the purchase.

While I did find some Cooks listed, no listing for a William C Cook or any variation was found for any of those years.  Possibly he was exempt from taxation due to his age(in 1871 he was 60). That also raises the question of why move to another state at that age.
The taxed Cooks were named:  Joseph, Thomas M, and Henry.
Also if it is not W C Cook who bought and cancelled that land, who is this other William C Cook?  I want to know more about him.  

JP, JK, and JGid all went to Arkansas at some point around the early 1880s.  JP stayed there and was living there when he passed.  JGid and JK returned to TN where they remained until their deaths.

I'm left with even more questions after assembling the timeline. However, I have a better idea of what was going on in their lives from 1858 to 1888. I hope this has helped others researching W C Cook's family to see all of the events happening within the family. If you have additional information I'd love to hear from you.

Sources and Referenced Information:  
Cook Bible Records, family pages from Bible given to Cass B Cook by Wm C Cook(his father) in late 1870s; digital images made by Hoyte Cook 14 May 1997, Copies sent to Marie Cooke Beckman. Entries appear to have been written by a few different hands.  The Listing covers the Births and Deaths of Wm C Cook, his wife Elizabeth Putman, all of their children, and the children of their youngest son Cass B Cook who received the bible from Wm C Cook. The bible was passed to Cass B Cook's youngest son Thomas C Cook and then handed down to his sons Hoyte and David Cook who currently possess the bible pages.  In addition to the Family Pages, there were clippings about Arkansas and a store receipt.  More about the Newspaper clippings can be found in the blog post about the canceled land transaction.

Tax Lists
Bedford Co. TN Tax rolls for years 1858-1874 no longer exist.  I did inquire with the county archives and was told that any of those records either were thrown out or lost in one of the courthouse fires as the state at that time didn't require that the county retain them. This means the available years of the Bedford Co TN Tax rolls that would be included in this timeline(1858-1888) are 1875-1888. The US, IRS Tax Assessment List for 1862-1918 database at Ancestry only includes 1862 for Tennessee.  A check of the individual source for the TN data lists the source as Civil War Direct Tax Assessment Lists: Tennessee; NARA Microfilm Publication T227, 6 rolls); Records of the Accounting Officers of the Department of the Treasury, RG 217; NARA, DC.

Rutherford Co. TN Tax rolls likewise are also scares for years and run 1877-1888 for the years covered in this timeline.
