Cook Family Land Transactions

Lawrence countySome time in the 1820s, John and Sarah Cook and their family migrated from Kentucky to the beautiful green hills of southern Indiana, settling in Springville, Perry township, in the northwest corner of Lawrence County. They remained there for about 40 years, moving on to Edgar county, Illinois, in about 1863. While living in Lawrence county, their names appeared frequently in the public record as they bought and sold property.
