Board Name: England
Teresa L. Cooke Merrill, WI USA May 19, 2002
I am desperately searching for more info on the following family.

I do not know very much about this family while they were in the UK.

William A. Cook(e) b: abt 1830, Great Britain married Mary Hudson b: abt 1831, Great Britain.

I have not yet found a date of marriage for William and Mary. However, they had 2 children while in the UK.

These children are:
Miriam Cook(e) b: 1862, Oldham, England
Zachariah Cook(e) b: April 21, 1868, Oldham, England

I have found information that states they lived on Huddersfield Rd., Oldham, England at the time of Zachariah Cook(e)'s birth in 1868.

I also believe that William and Mary Cook(e) and their 2 children, Miriam and Zachariah emmigrated to the Coal Valley, ILLINOIS, USA area as they had another child named Abraham Cook(e) b: 1873, IL, USA

I do not know what ship they came to the USA on, nor do I know of the date that they left the UK. I am searching for this information.

This family is listed in the USA Fed Census of 1880 in ILLINOIS.

William A. Cook(e) died Nov, 1, 1895. He was crushed to death by falling rocks in a coal mine in Coal Valley, IL, USA. William A. Cook(e) and Mary Cook(e) are both buried in Coal Valley Cemetery, Coal Valley, IL, USA

I am searching for missing information about this family such as info on their date of marriage, other family members related to William Cook(e) and Mary Hudson. Their parents, brothers, sisters, etc. etc.

I am also looking for information about the immigrant ship that they sailed to America on, and the date of that sailing.

Thank you for all your help.
