Loking for parent(s) of Frances Elizabeth Cook b 1841 in Ohio

+5 votes
I am among the hundreds (thousands?) of people who think they are related to the Mayflower Cooke family. Thought I had it resolved but ran into no parentage for this lady.  She married George D Hale and moved with him to Topeka, Kansas. I first thought her parents were henry Cook and Eliza Fisher.  maybe.

Yep, as Vincent knows, there are Cooks or Cookes in every little cowtown throughout the country.All hoping to have a toehold in the Mayflower story. (I think that is grand, and I'm a born Cook.)
