I am the widow of Bobby Leon Cook, son of the late daughter Mary Alice (Cogburn) Cook she was born to John Franklin Cogburn and Anna Belle Spurling Cook. I did the research in finding the legal trial and burials of those kin to my husband. I feel your sorrow for the loss of you great grandfather. Times back in Montgomery County, Ark. must have been sorrow filled and rough. The youth of those hills were on both sides of the war and law. Please forgive my husband's relatives of the discontent that was an event never to be changed. I know Bob had a good and genuine heart.
