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.
