The Jacob Family originally came from England and migrated to Maryland in the 1600's. Eventually my branch ended up in Kentucky and then Illinois. The Cash family comes from Scotland and settled in Virginia, then later migrated to Kentucky.
The Cook family is from Robertson County TN. Other names associated with the Cook lineage are Reeder, Wilson, Dorris, Hurt, Brumbelow and others.

I am currently looking for info on Jonathan Reeder of Robertson CO., TN. Born in 1804 he wed Elizabeth Brumbelow. His brother Claiborne was married to Elizabeth's sister Sarah. Jonathan and Claibornes father was Isaac Reeder.

Elisha also served in the 1838 North Carolina Indian Removal Regiment.I believe that Elisha's parents are probably Joel Wilson & Milly. Joel was a son of Elisha Moore Wilson.
