Hi - I wanted to share some info on the Cooks that I've found.

1. Mary Ellen Tillery - her parents name were Isaac A. Tillery and Martha
A. Vandevender. Isaac was born March 3, 1850 in either Kentucky or Iowa.
He died in Virgil, South Dakota in 1916. Her mother was born Feb. 8, 1852
in Kentucky or Indiana. She died before 1880 (I believe this is wrong since she shows
up in the 1920 Federal Census in Missouri). She had sisters named Jane
( born 1877) and Susan (born 1879). The family can be found in these
census records: 1870 Census: Missouri, Franklin County
1880 Census: Missouri, Grundy County, Franklin
1900 Census: South Dakota, Beadle County, Dearborn Township
Isaac's parents were William N. Tillery and Sarah West. Martha's parents
were Nimrod Vandevender and Susannah Evans.Isaac married Martha A. VANDEVENDER, daughter of Nimrod VANDEVENDER and Susannah EVANS, about 1871 in prob Missouri. Martha was born on 8 Feb 1852 in Kentucky, Indiana or Virginia. She died before 1880.

They had the following children:

  3 M i Louis TILLERY was born in 1872/1873 in Missouri. He married Della.  They had two sons: Asa M. (?) and Leon.
