1826–1876

Cook was a teach­er, and ev­i­dent­ly lived in the New York Ci­ty area in the 1860s.

The on­ly place we’ve seen Cook’s birth & death years is in The Bap­tist Stand­ard Hym­nal, ed­it­ed by Mrs. A. M. Town­send (Nash­ville, Ten­nes­see: Sun­day School Pub­lish­ing Board, Na­tion­al Bap­tist Con­ven­tion, U.S.A., 1924), page 292.

Cook was born the year for­mer Am­er­i­can pre­si­dent Tho­mas Jef­ferson died, which might be why his par­ents named him as they did.

Cook’s works in­clude:

  1. Beautiful Zi­on
  2. Jesus, Guide Our Way
  3. Little Child­ren, Come to Je­sus
  4. What Have I Done for Thee?
