Tombstone Tuesday - Georgeanna Cook

Daughter of
E. & M. Cook
Born March 31, 1844
Died Jan. 29, 1858
Buried Smithland Cemetery, Livingston County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 19 September 2012.
Elbert Cook obtained a bond to marry Malinda Smith 22 October 1832 in Livingston County. The family was enumerated on the 1850 census in that county. Elbert Cook was listed as a flatboat pilot.
This is just one of the many stones marking the burial place of a child. Very likely there are as many unmarked graves of children as there are with tombstones.
