Lorraine McLaren I am not a direct relation from what I have in my records, but I am wondering about time frame on your search. [external link] lists both John Cook and Ada Landrum as well as [external link] has an Ada Cook in Evansville, Indiana in the 1960's. There is one Landrum in the same cemetery. Both of these resources are free to explore. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Lorraine McLaren Hi Darlene,
I looked into your Cook, there are an number of listings for this family tree on [external link]; It lists Mary Cook as both Mary Anne Cook and Mary Georgeanna Cook, b. 04 July 1825 in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, NY. They list her mother, ______Wemyss, as being born in Taverndale, Scotland. Very few of these sites have any records for that time period, so you may want to try a family History Center at your local LDS stake center. they have the ability to access microfilm of older harder to find items.
I rather enjoyed you grandmother's mother Mary Isabel listed in the death records in Yuma, Arizona on [external link]. there aren't many resources that bring up the death certificates for death listings.
Good luck in your search.
