Family of Edwin Augustus COOK and Jennie Louise RICHARDS

Edwin Augustus COOK b. 1865 Sep193 at NY193. d. 1941201. bd. Elmwood Cemetery, Caton, NY201.

Married193 1895~193.

In 1900, Edwin and Jennie had been married 5 years.

Edwin's parents are determined as follows: in 1920, Lucinda Cook, mother-in-law, age 84, b NY, parents born Conn/PA, is listed in the household of Jennie Cook (divroced), Jennie's son Elmer, and Elmer's wife Grace. With that information, one finds, in 1880, Lucinda Cook, wife, b NY, parents b Conn/PA, listed3075 in the household of Austin Cook. Edwin Cook, age 14, is listed as their son. Also listed is Elizabeth Bates, mother-in-law, b PA.

Her marriage to Edwin Cook is by inference as she is mentioned in the obituary3071 of her brother Edward J Richards as "sister, Mrs. Jennie Cook of South Crning(sic)."

In 1900 in Caton is listed "Jennie Louise" (her g-mother's name?) Cook, wife of Edwin, b Apr 1868, married 5 years (at age 26 or 27), b NY, father b NY, mother b Maine. In 1920 in Caton is listed Jennie Cook, age 51, divorced, b NY, father b NY, mother b Maine. Lucinda Cook, mother-in-law, is living with Jennie and Elmer.

Jennie Richards Houlden is mentioned106 as granddaughter of Louisa Veazie in a 1930 legal notice, establishing her marriage to (unkn) Houlden before 1930. In 1930 in South Corning is listed217 on Bailey Creek Road, Jennie C (for Cook?) Houlden, age 62, married first at age 26. Her husband is not listed. However, the 1936 city directory1735 for Corning, NY, lists Jennie Houlden on Bailey Creek road in South Corning, "wid. John." Jennie Houlden, 1869-1963, is buried in Caton, NY.
