Listed below is my Cook genealogy. I am descended through this branch of the family through Sally Cook, my 4x-grandmother, who married my direct ancestor, Thomas Goldsmith. This branch of the Cooks were among the first settlers of Simpsonville, SC. I am descended through the line listed below. You can view more on the Cook family by scrolling down the page. Any questions? >Contact Me< NOTE: This information is copyrighted, and may not be redistributed without express permission from >here<
 
 Sally Cook was James Warren Goldsmith's mother. She was born in Chatham County, North Carolina, on 17 Jan 1795 to Henry and Nancy Ann Cook. She was the last of their ten children; her oldest sibling, Jedediah, was 27 years old when she was born (old enough to be her father). Sally was 10 or 11 years of age when her father died in 1806 in Chatham County. Shortly after that (anywhere from right after Henry's death to 1812), her mother and some of her siblings (probably her sister Nancy and herself) moved to Greenville County, South Carolina. Her brother Marcillus, her second-oldest sibling (Nancy, her closest sibling, was three years her senior), married in Chatham in 1812 and moved to Kentucky, so he probably did not make the move to Greenville with his sisters Sally and Nancy, and his mother.
 Sally married Thomas Goldsmith, from a prominent Southern family, around 1812, at the approximate age of 16-18. They had 9 children, their last child being James Warren Goldsmith, my 3x-grandfather, who was born when his father was almost 52 and his mother was 44. Nothing else is known about Sally. She died 24 Mar 1849 in Greenville County, South Carolina, and is buried at Clear Springs Baptist Church with her husband, daughter Lizzie, son and daughter-in-law Thomas and Mary (Charles) Goldsmith and their son John T., and their oldest grandson, William Henry Goldsmith (son of William and Mary Stone Goldsmith) who died at Kennesaw Mountain.

Notes for THOMAS GOLDSMITH:

15 July 1868 - "The Southern Enterprise," p. 3

Died, at his residence in Greenville District, S.C. on the 28th of April, 1868, THOMAS GOLDSMITH, SR., in a good old age, respected and honored by all who knew him.

He was born Dec. 19, 1787, and became a member of the Baptist Church Dec. 25, 1819. In the active part of his life, he was remarkable for energy, industry, and fidellity. Whatever his hand found to do, he did it with his might. And even in the years of weakness and increasing infirmities, he could not relinquish the satisfaction of having something to do, and doing it. His place at Church was rarely empty; and his slow steps, supported by his staff, as he came forward to his accustomed seat, served as a standing rebuke to all who absent themselves from the house of God for trivial causes.

His end was calm and peaceful. He passed away, surrounded by his kindred, who mourn for him as one not lost, but only gone before.
