About: My maiden name is Cook. My mother's maiden name is Mounce. I am researching their parents last names and my grandparent's last names as well. My dad's mother really wasn't a Northup, but he treated her as a daughter and I'd like to know about them as well.

Researching: Cook, Johnson, Dotson, Story, Burke, Phillips, Duncan, Lackey, Leslie, Morse, Gunter, Northup, Burwell, Mounce, Deaton, Raincrow, Yingst, Lytal

This is a photo of my grandpa and his family. My grandpa is the tall man on the left. His name is Ira Ole Cook. Infront of him is my uncle Stanley Kenny Cook. Next to my grandpa is his wife Leah June Northup (my grandma). She is holding a baby, Genoah Cook (my aunt). The older man in the middle of the photo is Ira's dad, Samuel Henry Harrison Cook. Harrison's wife is also in the picture standing on the left of him. Her name is Julia "Julie" Parlee Story. I don't know all the people in this photo, but I'm thinking that they are Julie's brothers and sisters. So they would be in the Story family.

This is my great great grandpa. He lived in Madison County Arkansas. He was an outlaw. He and his brother, James formed the Cook Outlaw Gang and Crawford Goldsby (Cherokee Bill) was in the gang. They robbed and terrorized the Indian Nations. He was murdered on his farm in Madison County Arkansas by someone unknown.

Samantha Ponce Judy, you have some great photos. I bet this is Italy because of the grapes. The picture of Irvin, Flora Belle, Omar and Edna is a great one. Edna looks alot like my mom when she was younger.

Samantha Ponce He looks alot like my dad, Ira Cook Jr. His dad was Ira Ole Cook, his dad was Samuel Henry Harrison Cook, his dad was William Tuttle "Bill" Cook-the Outlaw that terrorized the indian nations in the 1890's. Bill Cook was murdered on his farm in Madison County AR. I have a newspaper clipping on it.

Samantha Ponce What a wonderful picture. My great great grandpa William Tuttle "Bill" Cook was an outlaw in the Cook gang who ran around with Cherokee Bill. My maiden name was Cook. So I am also researching Cooks.
