"The photographers bio and the year the Dakotas became a state tell us that the photo should be from 1879-1889.
I am leaning towards 1879-1885. Is the back of the photo matte or glossy? That is quite a cross, I don't know if ever saw one…"
"Congratulations on the 100th member! I am sad to say that work has kept me from using the resources you have posted but hope to do so around Christmas when I am off. Thank you for your time and effort!"
"The center girl closely resembles a photo of my grandmother shirt and cameo dated circa 1907.
I highly doubt any of the woman in the second shot are in the first. The shadows are harsh but they do not bear resemblances that I can see."

Has anyone lived in Lansford ~ Carbon, PA in the past or perhaps still. I located an aunt & uncles address on the 1930 census (East Patterson St.) and viewed it on Google Streets. I have a question on a business that used to be next…"
"Thank you Nicole. Perhaps only one cousin in the group. Much greater probability

My interest in the Cooke surname is very recent because this year I started to focus on how & if relatives in Dunville, Canada were related to the Playle family. My parents generation were not able to recall. The connection was not as hard to make as I thought. Marr>Cooke >Playle from England. So I have just dipped my toe into researching Cookes. My Cooke connection is in Canada at the moment. Thank you for your note!
I see you are interested in the Cooke Surname. I am the president of the Francis Cooke Society. And I have the Francis Cooke Silver Book and five generations. Francis Cooke came over on the Mayflower.Scott
