5.BARNABUS COOK     3.SAUL COOK     1.BARNABAS COOK

 

     Barnabus Cook, a son of Saul and Elizabeth (Snow) Cook, was born

April 15, 1784, in at Litchfield, Kinnebec Maine and died in 1862 at

Amma, Roane County, WV.  His monument at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in

Roane County WV lists him as a veteran of the War of 1812.

    He married a widow, Lydia (Williams) Adams, in Maine. Lydia,

a daughter of Jonathan and Rachel Williams, was born Aug 31, 1782

at Bowdoin, Sagadoc Maine and died April 17, at Litchfield,

Kinnebec, Maine.

    When Barnabas and Lydia were married about 1806, her first

husband was supposed to have been lost at sea.  However, sometime

between 1816 and 1820, Lydia formed a habit of taking long walks in

the woods.  Barnabas became curious and followed and found that she

was meeting her first husband, who was very much alive.

    Not long after, Barnabas loaded a covered wagon  and left Lydia,

five children and Bowdoin, Maine for northwestern Ohio.

    Apparently there was no formal divorce.  Divorces were almost

impossible to obtain in those days and that difficult was usually

overcome by placing a couple of hundred miles between the parties.

    In the 1850's Lydia filed an application for a pension as a

widow of Barnabas Cook, a veteran of the War of 1812. Within a

short time, Barnabas went to Charleston and filed a deposition

that he was alive and well and no one's deceased spouse.

    Once Barnabus arrived in Ohio, he became a minister of the

Disciples of Christ and was sent as a missionary to that part of

Kanawha County VA that is now Calhoun County WV.

He was a pioneer of Kanawha county, where he served as justice of

the peace and one term as Sheriff.  He also managed to spend

much time preaching the Christian gospel over a period of twenty-five

years.  The marriage records of Kanawha are strewn with his name and

reports of marriages that he performed.

    According to "Hardesty's History of Calhoun County", Barnabus

was one of the very early settlers on the West Fork of the Little

Kanawha River in what is now Calhoun County, WV.  He met and married

his second wife, Christina McCune about 1820, after moving to the West

Fork Community.

    Christina was born in 1804 or 1805, a daughter of Peter and

Christina (O'Brien) McCune. Daniel DeWeese, a Civil War veteran (who

was a native of Gilmer and Calhoun counties), recorded the following,

in his 1905 book, Recollections and Experiences of a Lifetime:

      "Squire Cook, in company with a comrade, Elijah McCumber, came

as missionaries to the then wilderness of the West Fork, and Cook was

the first minister of the gospel to preach a sermon within the present

limits of Washington district, Calhoun County."

    "Squire Barnibus Cook married Christena McCune, a daughter of

Peter McCune, before referred to, while I was at Squire Cook's, who

then lived just above the road opposite where what is now known as the

Dock Parsons place, just South of the Lee district line.  In the fall

of 1841, I was at Squire Cook's when one of the settlers in the

Squire's bailiwick, Daniel Coger, who had sold his wife sometime

previous to Timothy McCune for an averagible deer's skin, dressed to

be as large as a doe's hide, in delinquency of which payment, Coger

sought a redress of grievance in Squire Cook's court, it being the

first law suit that I ever attended, both litigants and witnesses

being present and the cause coming on for hearing, the court heard all

that was adduced by plaintiffs and defendants and the material facts

being overwhelmingly in favor of the plaintiff, judgment was

accordingly awarded for the deer hide and the costs upon which

Wm. Truman, constable, was armed with an execution and commanded

by the court to proceed accordingly."

    Barnabus died in 1863 and Christina in 1879
