I need a will that I SUSPECT exists from John Cook, wife is Catherine, who probably died in Greene Co, 1840-1850.
I believe he left a bequest to my grgrgrandmother Nancy Cook McGuffin.
These people migrated about 1840's from Pulaski Co, VA to Greene Co, TN; joining several neighbors who did the same.

George W. Cook, a prominent and well-to-do farmer of Big Creek Township, is the son of James and Elizabeth Cook, natives of Tennessee. The father was for many years a farmer of that State, which occupation he followed until his death, in 1857. The mother was a member of the Methodist [p.326] Church, and both she and her husband were worthy of the respect shown them. Eight children were born to this union, only three of whom are now living. George W. is accounted by all one of the prominent farmers of Craighead County, having a large, well-cultivated farm, splendidly stocked with horses, cattle and fine hogs. His marriage to Miss Sarah J. Kitchens was consummated in 1865, and to their union have been born twelve children, seven of whom are living. One daughter is married to James Coward, and the youngest is two years old. Mr. Cook is a man of sterling worth in the community. He belongs to both the Masonic order and the Eastern Star, is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, and gives freely of his means for the promotion of progressive movements.

Another dominant family of Craighead County were the Cooks who located in the Big Creek Settlement.
The family came from Carroll County, Tennessee with the Bobbitts, Cardwells, and Burrows.
Christopher and George Cook families settled in eastern Big Creek.- 

Christopher and George Cook's brothers, Isaac and John T. Cook settled close to the Cache River 
near the Egypt area.
Isaac married Caroline, daughter of Thomas and Ada/Edith Patton of Alabama who settled at Strawfloor in 1832. 
Thomas Patton died before 1840 near Strawfloor. John T. married Mary ? Patton.  ?
Both Isaac and John T. Cook lived near the Pattons before Isaac and John T.'s families moved to Mississippi. 
Isaac's family returned to Arkansas in the 1840's & moved to Big Creek. 
John T.'s family returned about 1854 and moved close to the Cache River near Egypt.

Accompanying the Cooks to Arkansas were the Bobbitt clan led by a widow, Lodicia "Disa" Bobbitt of Alabama.
Her children were as follows: 
Moses L. "Len" Bobbitt married Rachel, 
Samuel P. Bobbitt married Nancy Cardwell, 
Lively Bobbitt married a Moore, 
Lodicia Bobbitt married William F. Sims, 
Emmaline Bobbitt married Devaney Burrow, 
Martha Ann Bobbitt married William "Bill" Thomas Cook
