Thanks for inputs re: William Cook. I've already checked those you so kindly forwarded, the name of surviving spouse for the one I'm after is Rebecca, as found in Methodist Church records of Barberton. It may be of interest to note that the William Cook I'm after may have been born in the UK :) :)

Apparently he was 76 when he died early 1925 ... i.e. Year of birth was abt 1848

I reckon you are pretty close seeing that his Headstone mentions 77 years at time of death. Yet, I remain somewhat confused as his marriage certificate of 1893 gives his age as 40 at the event - which, obviously, indicates that his year of birth could have been 1853. Thanks so much for your interest and support.  :) :)
