About Henry Jamison Crook

Henry Crook, second child of John Crook and Elizabeth Roberts, was born in Lincoln County, Georgia in 1835. The only information found on Henry during his years as a child is in the Lincoln County Census of 1850. He is listed at age 15 and laborer. What his job may have been is unknown but in the 1860 Census he is listed as a mechanic. He may have been working as apprentice in 1850. Henry married Mary McCorkel, November 18, 1854, in Lincoln County. She was born about 1837, most likely in Georgia. Enlisting in the Confederate Army September 03, 1861, Henry was assigned as a Private to Company F, Georgia 22nd Volunteers, Bartow/Lincoln Volunteers. Also in the unit with him were other family members. They were Noah, his brother, and John Hopkins, a brother-in-law. Another Crook, William R., was also a member of his unit. I can find no evidence he was part of this family but it's quite certain he was. He may have been a brother. William was killed at Manassas, Virginia on August 30, 1862. Henry was discharged from service prior to April 30, 1862. From December 1861 through February 22, 1862, the 22nd was encamped at Camp Blanchard, Portsmith County, Virginia. The reason for his early discharge is unknown. Henry returned home and is listed as being in Lincoln County in the 1870 and 1880 Census. He was, at that time, farming. When he and his wife died is unknown but they do not show up on any further census for Lincoln or surrounding counties. It is possible they may have died before the next census. Nine children are known to have been born to this union.
