Re: [AL] Cook Family
In Response To: Re: [AL] Cook Family ()

Certainly is a tough one. Might be time to spend some money. (Something I TRY to avoid)

Since you apparently have this one....have you sent for his SS application? It costs about $27 -- but it SHOULD have his parents names and his birthplace on it.

Name: Augustus Cook
SSN: 416-26-6823
Last Residence: 31204 Macon, Bibb, Georgia, United States of America
Born: 25 Jul 1892
Last Benefit: 35160 Talladega, Talladega, Alabama, United States of America
Died: Aug 1977
State (Year) SSN issued: Alabama (Before 1951 )

If land was deeded to them in Talladega county there has to be a record of that.....somebody's will or soomething. Transfer of deed. Tax records. SOMETHING

The Allabama Archives has a lot of Talladega on microfilm.....if you can narrow the time frame, the search shouldn't be too bad, though of course there will be a LOT of COOKS

If you can't visit the archives, perhaps you can order the microfim in to your library and review it there.

These are "stab in the dark" notions but since Oree is an unusual name.......
Date is off a few years. but since we don't know anything else about OREE this, you might try for an obituary for this one:
