This site is dedicated to all the families of the past, the present and the future that have been, and will be, a part in the establishing of my house and those who dwell in it. There are many names engraved on the walls of this house of which very little is known. Through the efforts of all of us of the present, hopefully, the history of those of the past will be preserved for those of the future so that none will be forgotten.

Thanks to everyone that has shared their research and efforts to make this site possible.

Families of Johnny M. Cook
My Cook ancestors settled in Carroll County, Georgia sometime between 1840 and 1850 and remain there to this day. My information dates back to
Robert Cook, 1795.

My mother's maiden name is Pyles. They too were from Carroll County and Heard County, Georgia. See "
My Brick Walls" for more information on John P. Pyles.

My grandmother, on my father's side is
Clara Maggie Chambley. I don't have much information about this family. Also from Carroll County, Georgia


My grandmother on my mother's side is
Geneva Gray. This family was also of Carroll County, but some went into Alabama.


My great-grandmother on my mother's side is
Arrana Holloway. Thanks to Patricia Wilson, of Levelland, Texas, and Elaine White I now have this line dated back to 1530 in England.


My great, great, great grandmother on my mother's side is
Jane M. Will Cash. She married Miles Solomon Holloway. Thanks to Donna Evans I now have this line dated back to Scotland in the 1600's.

From what information I have been able to find the Rooks family and the Cook family pretty much migrated together out of North Carolina, down through Jackson County, Georgia and on to Carroll County. Several marriages between the two families have been found. In their early years in Carroll County they often lived in the same household.

The Carroll surname exist on both my side and my wife's site. As of yet I haven't been able to link the two together, but am quite sure they do somewhere. Both were in Carroll County about the same time period. My connection to the Carroll family is through the marriage of
Minnie Bell Cook who married Samuel Andres Carroll.

Who am I ? What is my name ?
This image and I; are we the same ?

This face I see; is it of me ?
Or could it be the face of we ?

These words I speak; are they of me?
Or should I seek the words of we?

Should this life I live be lived as me?
Or should my strives be centered on we?

And when the time shall come to die;
What shall become of we and I?

Johnny Cook
If you'd never been born, then what would you be?
You might be a fish or a toad or a tree.
You might be a doorknob or three baked potatoes.
Worse than all that, you might be a wasn't.
A wasn't just isn't. He just isn't present.
But you... You are you. Now isn't that pleasant?
Today you are you, and it's truer than true
That there's no one alive who is you-er than you.
Shout loud, "I am lucky to be what I am!
Thank goodness I'm not just a clam or a ham,
Or a dusty old jar of gooseberry jam.
I am what I am, and it's a great thing to be,
If I say so my self, happy birthday to me!"

Dr. Seuss
