He married (2) SARAH E. LIGON 30 March 1865 in Trinity County, Texas. She was born 10 March 1849 in MS, and died 31 December 1930 in Tarrant Co. TX.


Elbert is listed on the 1856 Trinity County, Texas tax rolls.

The 1860 federal census, Sumpter (Trinity) Texas, pg 332, shows Elbert and family with personal property value of $995 and lists him as a farmer. They are living next door to Evans and Susan Cook, who are the parents of William A. Cook who married Elbert's sister, Phedora. William and Phedora live next door to them.

Elbert enlisted as a private in the Confederate Army and by the end of the war was a 2nd Lieutenant. He was in Co. A, Gould's Battalion, McClay's Brigade, Forney's Division. A cousin, Abner John (Jack) Womack was in the same company. Elbert substantiated rights to a widows pension for Jack's wife. Jack died, 34, on Christmas Day 1869.

He and his family were still living in Trinity County in 1870 according to the census. They had moved to Morgan in Bosque County at least by April 1874 when his first born son, John A., died. Elbert and Sarah never had any children of their own. They raised Susan T. (Sue) Cook, from about 6 weeks of age when her mother died. Sue was the daughter of Elbert's sister, Phedora Womack Cook.

He is listed as a farmer and they also had boarders in their home.

Notes for SARAH E. LIGON:

In her later years, Sarah "Sallie" lived with her foster daughter's family, Sue, Emmett and Luther Strange in Tarrant County, Texas for several years and was still living with them she passed away. Sarah drew a widow's pension for Elbert's service in the Civil War. Elbert applied for a pension for his service in the Civil War but his claim was rejected. Later, Sarah "Sallie" , as a widow, filed for a widows pension for his service in the war and her claim was honored; her pension number #38146.

According to information from Minty Ruth Mooney Johnson, Sarah "Sallie" Ligon Womack was a sister to George Ligon who married Minty Womack, daughter of Abner Carroll Womack, brother to Elbert. Elbert and Sarah were caring and loving people.

1861, W. A. Cook, 1 poll

No further listing for him in Trinity County.

1867, W. A. Cook, Bosque County, Texas tax roll, 177 acres.
William married the second time, 13 June 1877, Louisa J. Texas Ward, a widow, in Bosque County. Louisa was born in Georgia and moved to Texas with her family after the Civil War. It is said as a child, Louisa heard the battle of guns from Atlanta.
William was part Cherokee Indian on his mother's side. In a 1960 audio taped message of 82 year old Thomas Jefferson Cook, he says that Wm. Austin Cook bought land in Bosque County for a cost of 25 cents an acre. The first time Patsy Seay finds him is on the tax list of Bosque Co. is 1867. He had 177 acres valued at $585., 1 horse worth $30., 30 head of cattle worth $120., He had a state tax of $1.10 with a 20% penalty of 17 cents. His county tax was 93 cents with a 20% penalty of 15 cents. Patsy also has the tax list for 1868 and 1869. T. J. Cook said Wm. Austin was in Bosque Co. when it was organized in 1854 but she can't find evidence of that. The Texas Almanac verifies that Bosque County was organized in 1854. William Austin Cook died at age 56, cause of death unknown.

The following is the obituary of A .F. Cook, as it was printed the McGregor Mirror:
Mr. A .F. Cook Funeral Held Here Saturday.
Mr. A. F. Cook, 77, died at his home in McGregor at 2 p.m., Friday, June 10. While in failing health for the past several months, he had not been seriously ill but for a few days, and his death was not unexpected.

Mr. Cook was born in Morgan, Texas and came to McGregor in 1900 and was first engaged here as section foreman on the Cotton Belt Railroad. After a term of years in this service, he was employed by the McGregor Water Works, in which capacity he served the city as maintenance man in this important position. Afterward, he went with McGregor Milling and Grain Company as a mill-wright and mechanic and served there until his health forced him to retire from active duties.

Mr. Cook was always efficient and attentive in his work, affable and pleasing in his manner, well liked by all who knew him. He was a charter member of College Avenue Baptist Church in McGregor and for many years had been teacher of the Men's Bible Class in that church, where he was a devoted and active member. His life was a fine example of Christian manhood and he will be sorely missed among the walks of men.

Survivors include his wife, five sons, Bill, Curtis, Stanley, Price, of McGregor; Horace of Dallas and 13 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Also surviving are five brothers, Will Cook of Dublin, Ben of Oklahoma, Tom of Dallas, Charlie of Morgan, N. J. Cook of Athens; and three sisters, Mrs. Lela Spears of Whitney, Mrs. Sue Strange of Beaumont and Mrs. Callie Hackney of Munday.

Funeral services were held at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 11 at the College Avenue Baptist Church being conducted by the Rev. I. J. Lloyd, pastor, and assisted by Rev. E. E. Laux, pastor of the First Baptist Church. Interment was in McGregor Cemetery, under the direction of Amsler's Funeral Service.

Pallbearers were George and Dee Spradley, John Allison, Fred J. Boyd, Clyde Cash and Hervey Meadows. Honorary pallbearers were all members of Mr. Cook's Bible Class at College Avenue Baptist Church.

The court documents and letter below is the "ONLY PROOF" we have that Ida was a daughter of Samuel Tillman Graham.

The following court document was sent to Ida for her to sign over her rights to a little piece of property to her step mother, Winnie Graham; for Winnie to have during her lifetime. The copy that I have is appears to be a copy of the original document. I think she did this but not for sure.

Woodville, Texas January 9, 1942
Mrs. Ida Cook

McGregor, Texas
Dear Mrs. Cook:

Ed suggested that since you were away from here and would likely never return, you would likely be glad to sell your interest of one and three-fifths acres in the sixteen acres owned by your father, S. T. Graham and his last wife, Mrs. Winnie Graham.

Following that suggestion, I am enclosing a deed to your interest to myself, together with a check for Ten ($10.00) Dollars as purchase price. That is all that I could pay in view of the fact that no taxes have been paid in years and I will have to assume their payment if you sell to me.

If you do not care to sell, please return my check in the envelope I have prepared; if you do, then you and Mr. Cook go before a Notary Public and execute the deed and return it in the envelope. I am making the check for $11.00 to care for the Notary fee.

Your very truly,
(his signature) J. A. Mooney
