William Wallace Cook
April 20, 1878 - April 9, 1935
    Word was received here Tuesday forenoon of the death of W. W. (Bill) Cook at his home at Johnson, Kansas, at 6:00 AM that day.  Mr. Cook's death was attributed to double pneumonia with which he had been seriously ill for about a week.
    Mr. Cook was a genuine old-timer of Ashland and Clark County.  He grew to manhood here, being employed on several ranches and farms of the county and at that work was considered most adept.
    In the summer of 1932 he moved with his family to Stanton County where he has since made his home.  He is survived by his widow and five children.
William Wallace was born in Paris, Edgar, Illinois to William and Sarah Jane (Burton) Cook.  He married Estella Violet Sanger on June 14, 1906 in Meade, Meade, Kansas.
