"Frances Cooke, daughter of William Cooke, Sr. married _____ Persons, ancestor of a subsequent governor of Alabama. Since Mary, the third wife of William Cooke, Sr., who married Robert Lacy after the death of William, named "Francis Parsons" as a legatee of her will in 1715, perhaps she was the mother of Frances Cooke Person."
