looking for any information on john cookingham born 2-26-1782/83
he married ellen(eleanor) sears(shires). He is my ggg-granfather and need information on him and family. I know of two children George Washington Cookingham my gg-granfather and his sister caroline. Believed she married a downie. All were in new york until 1860-65. Then moved to illinois and settled in grant park,kankakee county. then moved on to paton iowa,greene county. I have been trying to connect us to the rest of the cookinghams that have most remained in the new york area. The books that were published in 1993.1984,1923 i have all of them but were are not in there. Tracing back from johan
