    I am looking for information of my grandmother, born Fannie Ethel Cook, married Edgar Lee Adcock! She died in 1950 and is buried in Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery, Boaz, Alabama! If you have any information please contact me! There are numerous relatives in the Cook family from Sand Mountain, Boaz, Alabama!
