Hi, I am looking for confirmation whether Aaron Cook (Mary Ford) was the father of the Nathaniel Cook (Lydia Vore). The closest I have gotten to a confirmation is in The Ancestry of Jesse Cook and His Descendants. Is says that some writers believe that Nathaniel Cook was a son of Aaron's born in England. I have noticed that most places put Nathaniel as Aaron's son, but again most lists of Aaron's children do not include a Nathaniel. And, more importantly, if the years were correct, Aaron (1610 estimate) would only have been 15 or 16 if he was Nathaniel's (1625 estimate) father. https://books.google.com/books?id=1mNHAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA10&lpg=PA10&dq=the+history+of+jesse+cook+and+his+descendants&source=bl&ots=BJpGxTTzV4&sig=QWIiRqMKWlGf2hvXNbCeaDdzCfQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiIo571543MAhUJ4mMKHUTAAYAQ6AEIHDAA#v=onepage&q=the%20history%20of%20jesse%20cook%20and%20his%20descendants&f=false
I have just posted a comment in Nathaniel Cooke's profile about genetic evidence that he is not related to Aaron Cooke at all. They are in completely different Haplogroups (here's the comment):
There is now genetic evidence that Nathaniel Cooke was not related to Aaron Cooke. Aaron is in Haplogroup I1, and Nathaniel is in Haplogroup R1b.

I also found out that the "Big Tree" has one of our Cookes (Kit No. 297627) and narrows down Nathaniel's haplogroup to R-FGC18229, a subclade of R-FGC13899, etc.
