The following notes were taken from
French-Indian Military Roster for Amelia Cty.From Peggy <[email protected]>Ishem is our ancestor's real name. Shem, Jr., his son, is probably wherethe dropping of the "Ishem" comes from. Since Ishem used his nickname formany things and his son was just "Shem", "Ishem" was dropped. I found"Ishem" in several places pertaining to our ancestor, which I have sincemisplaced. In case you didn't know this, I also had a copy of theFrench-Indian military roster for Amelia County, VA, listing "Shem Cook"(our ancestor) and a John Cook, presumably his brother. Since you're livingin VA, I thought you would find that especially interesting. I will becopying them this Spring, so if you don't find them, I'll forward them toyou then. No one seems to know where Shem came from. I assume he was notone of the early VA settlers and immigrated from England, or is one ofMordacai Cooke's many lost branches (I'm hoping for the latter!).Principally, I think I found these references in the archives of OxfordLibrary in Granville Co, NC. Also in a book written, I believe, by one ofShem, Jr.'s descendants, "Many Cookes and Their Broth," which I stumbled onduring a visit to the Burton Memorial Library in Detroit. I also found"Ishem" ten years ago in the LDS records.Research of Cheri Loumena, FTM Webpage: born abot 1722 Virginia, died abt. 1792. Married Anne rucker abt. 1743.

Research of Cheri Loumena, FTM Webpage. Born abt. 1726. No other information, other than marriage to Shem and their children.Periodical: Cook's Crier, Vol. 6 (1974), in Ogden FHL #929.273 c771w.Same info as listed in notes under husband, Shem Cooke.Shem and Ann are mentioned in will of her father, Peter RuckerThe IGI and Ancestral File have several entries that seem to be this Ann Rucker. I wonder about some of the dates, she seem to be too old to be the mother of some of the children listed. Seems like a generation missing: son Claiborne born in 1767, another 1772, she was born in 1726. ????1/15/00Ann Rucker's parentage is well documented, primarily from probate records.I first got it from LDS sources. But for verification, here's a link to aRucker family site with wills! Scroll down to get Peter's Will.
