This area was homesteaded between the years 1899 and 1922. The first recorded homestead was in 1899 when Adam Carr received his homestead located in R3 T36 S20. Many of these homesteader’s names are found in the Cook Cemetery records, such as Ball, Bonner, Carr, Cook and Snyder. Some of the earliest known burials are of these families. The earliest burial shown here was for Mary Cook who died April 25, 1901 at age 66. Following that fall, baby Oda Snyder was buried, who died Sept. 3, 1901. The Cook Cemetery is located on land that Charles Cook homesteaded in 1908. It is on a knoll that overlooks the Fords Creek Canyon.
