Philip Cook

Philip was a son of John Lewis and Mary Anna (Polly) Coffey Cook. Mary Anna was the daughter of Lewis Moses and Delilah Turpin Coffey.

Click on this blog title to read about John and Mary.

Philip was born in Indiana in Jan., 1851 and died Apr. 19, 1924 in Logan Co., KS. He married the widow Lucinda O'Neal Gant on Dec. 25, 1871 in Harrison Co., MO. Lucinda has been previously married to Columbus Gant with whom she had two children: Decatur, born c1866, and Mary, born c1868. Columbus is thought to have served Iowa on the Union side during the Civil War. The Gant family can be found in the Aug., 1870 Federal census for Wapello Co., IA.

I first find Philip and Lucinda in the 1880 census for Buffalo Twp., Cloud Co., KS. They apparently were on the move because they were again enumerated that year in Phillips Co., Walnut Twp., KS. In 1900 they were still in Phillips Co.

Philip and Lucinda's children were:

Sarah Ann, born Missouri, c1870
Jacob, born Missouri, c1874
George Martin, born Cloud Co., KS, Feb. 1880
Lora Jane, born Missouri, Jul., 1885
Lawrence Motis, born Missouri, Dec., 1888
Clarence Marshall, born Missouri, Jan., 1892
Ollie Arthur, born Harrison Co., MO, Sep. 26, 1893, died Dec. 1, 1955in Okanogan Co., WA
