Subject: [NORCAL] Need help---W. Q. Cook/Lucinda D. Mires family bible.
Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2012 15:04:32 -0400 (EDT)


I'm helping the Merced Co. Courthouse Museum find a home for a family
Bible that was given to them.

It belonged to William Q. COOK & Lucinda Dee MIRES.

W. Q. Cook married Lucinda Dee Mires on Dec. 30, 1856, San Joaquin Co.

Cook was born on March 7, 1825.
Mires was born on March 22, 1840.

They had five children:
Charles W. Cook was born on Feb. 5, 1858.
George Washington Cook was born on Feb. 16, 1860.
Isabella A. Cook was born on Dec. 16, 1861.
Ada Josephine Cook was born on March 24, 1864.
Eva Lucinda Cook was born on March 7, 1867.

The museum would like to find a home for this bible. Any & all help
appreciated...Alma

A member of the society rescued it from a flea market in Merced. If someone doesn't come forward it will go to the San Joaquin Co. Historical Society.
