David Patterson Cook

David was born in Scotland and crossed the Atlantic with his parents and a sister in 1850. His mother (Elizabeth) died at St. Louis, his father (David) at Vernon, Utah in 1875 and his sister (Agnes) at Brigham City in 1899. According to his sister's obituary she crossed the plains in 1850; but we cannot say for certain if she was with their father. Additional research is needed.
