Is Aaron Cook (Mary Ford) the father of Nathaniel Cook (Lydia Vore)?

+5 votes

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.

In Anderson's Great Migration Begins profile of Aaron (p 467) , he agrees with you: "Pope also gives Aaron an oldest child Nathaniel, but Nathaniel Cooke of Windsor married in 1649, which would make him too old to be a son of Aaron.)"

What's the Mary Ford reference? Nathaniel was married to Lidia Vore.

In adding details to this profile (based on the research I did to answer this question), I found a duplicate (with the correct spelling Cooke-- which appears most often on contemporary records) and proposed a merge.

Hi Rosie,

       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.
