Erwin M. COOK       (ID #I12195)

(male)
Family 1 : Marie (Mary) Alma (Birdie) BAIRD (b. 25 MAY 1881, d. 17 JUN 1953)
  1.  Grace Vivian COOK (b. 16 MAY 1900, d. 20 MAY 1900)

 

This family is on the 1900 census in Pleasant Valley, Precinct No. 9, Weld Co., CO (ED 202 p. 3 l. 16) with Susannah Cook, sister of Erwin, and Ralph Foreman, no relation. In 1920, Erwin M. and Mary are in Twin Falls, Twin Falls Co., ID (ED 252 p. 6 l. 53), no other persons in the household. Thus it seems likely they did not have other children. However, teenagers were working as domestics at that time in Twin Falls. 1900 census indicates married 2 years, 0 children.

[4378] However, published cemetery records note existence of another age at death, 52 years, 6 months, 19 days -- this puts his birthdate at 10 feb 1868.

Thomas COOKE       (ID #I10551)

(male)
Family 1 : Elizabeth LASON (b. BEF 1713, d. AFT 1755)

 

Famous, after a fashion, as the least-mourned individual ever buried in the parish of St. Mary's, Islington. His life was the subject of a biography by W. Chamberlain, The life of Mr. Thomas Cooke, late of Pentonville (a miser), London: Law and Gilbert, 1813), which ran to at least three editions and included an engraved portrait. According to Chamberlain, Cooke began his career as a porter in Norwich, but found his way to London, where he became an excise inspector at the paper mill in Tottenham. Upon the death of the proprietor, whom we know to be Israel Johannot, he blackmailed his way into marriage with the widow, by informing her that he would report fraudulent practices at the mill unless she agreed to his proposal. He was known as "Cabbage Cooke", because of the time he spent tending the cabbage patch he established at his home in White Lion Street, Pentonville, where formerly there had been a flower garden. He roamed the streets at night equipped with a bucket and trowel, gathering horse manure for his cabbages, and was also known to squat over them when the supply of horse manure proved insufficient. Shortly before his death, he tried to bargain with Mr. Bodkin, the undertaker, for an especially cheap coffin. His funeral was attended by women of the neighborhood who threw rotten cabbage stalks in his grave, so that he would have some to take with him to the other world. His estate was estimated at 127,250, including bequests to a wide variety of charities, including 50 to the Humane Society, which was devoted to the "resuscitation of persons apparently drowned."

He was cited as the owner of the paper mill in 1757 and 1761 (insurance records), and it is known the mill was rented in 1770 to Edward Wyburd, who converted it to a corn mill. The mill burned in 1788.

We are indebted to Sue Adcock for tracking down his dates and relationships.
