Van Hook's of Cheatham County, TN

0 votes


I am the Granddaughter of George Bernard Van Hook, Sr, DOD of Ashland City, TN (Cheatham County).  My Great Grandfather was, Walton David Van Hook, also of Ashland City, TN, DOD 1911.  I have identified all the Van Hook's buried in Cheatham County, except for a Mary L. Van Hook, DOD 10/18/1912.  This may have been here married name.  My Grandfather, George, lost his father, Walton David when he was only 6 years old, so he never knew anything about the Van Hook side of the family.

I have great interest in learning more about my Van Hook lineage.

I am a member of the DAR on the Murphy line and the Carney line.

Thank you.
