Obadiah Cook, son of John Cook and Elizabeth Rogers, was born about 1687.1,2,3 He died at Southampton, Suffolk Co., New York, before 8 September 1733, when administration was granted on his estate.4,5,6 He was buried at Hayground Cemetery, Bridgehampton, Suffolk Co., New York.7,8

Obadiah married Sarah Moore, daughter of Joseph Moore, about 1713.9,10

His wife predeceased him, and when he died intestate, letters of administration were granted to "Elias Cook brother and Ezekiel Sandford Kinsman to Obadiah Cook husbandman." Ezekiel had married Elizabeth Moore, sister to Sarah Moore so he was brother-in-law to Obadiah and warranted the "kinsman" label, evidence that Obadiah had marrried Sarah Moore. That his wife was "Sarah," is shown by his burial at Bridgehampton, next to Sarah his wife.5,10


Sarah Moore b. abt. 1693, d. 19 May 1729
