2611. Joel Cooke II

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 11 Oct 2005 by John Cameron Walker [nicenonya2@sbcglobal.net]. This was written by Richard Yerkes Cooke, both he and his wife Lavina Borden Cooke worked on genealogy and family history. "My Father, however, was educated by his Grandfather. His mother having married a second time. He described him as having been most kind to him, and always spoke of him in the most affectionate terms. When his grandfather married his second wife, about 1806, my father, Joel Cooke 2nd. came to Philadelphia, living in that city the rest of his life. He purchased (old) No. 189 Chestnut Street about the year 1835 and lived there until 1855. The four sons were all born at (old) no.189 Chestnut Street and almost directly opposite the entrance to Independence Hall."

"Joel Cooke was for many years, because of repeated re-elections Alderman of Chestnut Ward of the Old City of Philadelphia. When consolidations took place, he declined further elections and retired to private life. He was always prominent in Whig politics, and the associate of William B. Reed, Morton McMichael, George W. South, Thaddeus Stevens, and other leaders of that party in PA. He was a good citizen and an affectionate father. I count my greatest blessings that I had the benefit of his example and council in early manhood, and which he bore in the community, in which he lived nearly all his days."
