About Col. George Cooke
Examining the records and authorities at Cambridge, Mass., one is struck immediately with the very probable relationship of SUSANNAH COOK to Col. George Cook(e), gent., Cambridge, freeman, March 3, 1635-6. He was the Cromwellian soldier, (vide, BLOOMFIELD, ante, p. 499,). And, probably from his actual service, and as a colonel, in Oliver Cromwell's army, gave the tradition to Thomas Bloomfield, through the daughter Mary, who became the wife of JONATHAN DUNHAM, alias SINGLETARY, son of RICHARD SINGLETARY, His older brother, at Cambridge, was JOSEPH COOK(E), who came to America with him. In close association and contiguity, there was Philip Cook(e), which almost conclusively, with other indicia, holds these two brothers, Col. George Cook and Joseph Cook, as his brothers, in turn; hence, making the logical deduction, all three of these Cook brothers were such to their sister SUSANNAH SINGLETARY, whose maiden name was SUSANNAH COOK(E).
