Notes for ABRAHAM COOK:
Abraham Cook was the son of Thomas & Mary Underwood Cook
according to the History of Chester County, Pennsylvania. Thomas Cook
had a twin brother, Abraham, for whom his son was named. The family
located from Pennsylvania to the Carolinas sometime before Abraham's
Abraham Cook bought land in Rowan County shortly after his marriage.
"Bowater Beals to Abraham Cook for 15 pounds Virginia money, 100 A
bought from Richard Williams, granted by Granville May 1756. John
Beal, Mordecai Mendenhall. Proved Oct. 1757." Because of Bowater's
land purchase in 1756 we know the families moved from Pennsylvania to
the Carolinas sometime between Bowater's marriage in York County,
Pennsylvania (to Abraham's sister, Sarah) in 1752 and his land
purchase in 1756.
He was one of the original members of the New Garden MM; Guilford, NC.

the balance of my property not otherwise disposed of, shall be sold by my
executors and the proceeds equally divided between my children, the four
children of my daughter Anna Bond, deceased, to have their mother's share.
And lastly, I nominate and appoint my son Jehu Cook and my firend William
Wickersham executors of this my last will and testament, revoking all former

The first Religious Society in the township was that of the Friends, who, in
1815, organized the West
Grove meeting, about 3 miles north-west from Centerville, and built a log
meeting-house. The society,
at its organization, was composed of the families of Robert Commons, Wm.
Townsend, Benj. Maudlin, Jacob Griffin, Wm. Harvey, Axum Elliott, Obed
Barnard, and perhaps
Edward Benbo. It was named by Robert Commons, West Grove, that being the
name of the place
where he had resided in Pennsylvania. They met in the woods at the place
selected for the
meetinghouse. The following named persons were also early members, some of
them, perhaps, at the
time of the organization: Abraham and Joseph Cook, Jehu Wickersham, John
Brumfield, John Copeland, John Harvey, Robert Harvey, Charles Canaday,
George Russell, Nathan
Overman. Among their early preachers were Jesse Bond, Hannah Baldwin, and
Daniel Williams, who
is still living in Clay. This meeting has been continued until the present

Notes for ZIMRI COOK:
Zimri Cook sold his farm to Indiana Yearly Meeting in 1833 which is part of
the land now occupied by Earlham College. The following is quoted from
"Earlham, the Story of the College 1847-1962, by Opal Thornburg:"
"The property consisted of two farms totalling 320 acres, purchased for a
total of $5,800. Each farm, partly under cultivation, had a house and a
The south part of the new Yearly Meeting farm had been entered from the U.S.
government in 1806 by Samuel McKinley, who sold it to Valentine Pegg in 1813
for $700. Pegg had a daughter, Lydia, who married Zimri Cook, and in 1819
Pegg sold the farm to his son-in-law for $1,500. Zimri Cook deeded it to
Indiana Yearly Meeting on December 6, 1833 for $3,000 in the names of the
trustees appointed by the Meeting for Sufferings: John Maxwell, Thomas
Evans, Charles Moffitt, James Pegg and John Pool.
The north portion, cut across by the national Road, had been owned first by
Jonas Randall, who entered it from the U.S. government in 1806. From
Randall the land passed in 1808 to Jesse Bond. He solf it for $850 to Jehu
Stuart, who conveyed it in 1831 to David Wright, from whom the Yearly
Meeting trustees on December 6, 1833 purchased it for $2,800."
