    Cook Men
    "Cook Men" photograph, ca. 1920; digital image ca. 2014, original held by Marilyn W. Assiff, [address for private use], 2014. This photograph was a postcard with the names of the men penned on the back of the postcard by an unknown person. This is believed to be a picture of 15 men of the Cook family of Carroll County, Indiana or men related to the family by marriage.This photograph has been cropped many times to provide individual head shots for the pages on this website of the various men in the photo.

  • Notes 
    • Interesting note - Mom recalls that a doctor from Carroll County would come to visit her grandparents (John Morton & Jemima Cook) at their Milton, Indiana home in Wayne County. Other than being on the Cook side, Mom never knew the identity of the doctor. I found that it was certainly (verified in local news item) Dr. Edward D. Wagoner, John Morton?s nephew. Edward died 23 Nov 1935. No wonder Mom didn?t remember much, she was only 9 years when he died.
