Thank you for your reply.
Could you share the source of your proof regarding this James W. Cook being a
son of Edward Cook and Ann Jones?
I have been tempted to place him in that Cook family before, but I can find
nothing to substantiate the connection beyond James having been born in England
and living in the same area as another of Edward and Ann's children.
