She died in 2001 in Lyons, New York .  The cause of death was Old Age. She was buried in Hopewell Cemetery on  Mumby Road.

Adelaide is the one I would pick, if by some divine act, I was allowed to choose my own mother.
She never scolded me. I don't recall her even speaking harshly to me. This, even though I was
the most troublesome of the family. I became rebellious in the third grade and refused to do
school work. I failed that grade and several others until the School Board insisted that I be seen
by a doctor. The doctor found no reason for my lack of good study habits, but, I think, both of my
parents felt that something was wrong and as a result I was treated differently from my siblings
in regard to discipline. I'm sure that my clashes with the academic world caused embarrassment
for the entire family. Adelaide had 9 children an admirable job raising them all and all turned out
to be fine citizens.     -The above was written by Burr (Buster) Cook.


Adelaide married Stanleigh Gates Cook  "Stan" son of Dr. Arthur Mortimer Cook and Esther Pamelia Gates about Oct 1927 in Canandaigua, Ontario County, New York. Stanleigh was born on 22 Dec 1907.

Priscilla Mullins of the Mayflower Pilgrams on his mothers side. He always lived in NYS. He married

in 1927 and had 9 children, 7 boys and 2 girls, 27 grandchildren and 6 gr grandchildren. He had one
sister, Evelyn Cook who lives in Buffalo. Mr. Cook was an auto mechanic for a number of years. For
the last 30 years he had an electrical contracting business called "Cook Electric" along with his oldest
son Stanleigh Jr. and with the aid of other sons along the way. He enjoyed hunting and at one time
flying, he had a pilots license for small planes. Mr. Cook had never been in a hospital until Mar 6 of
1977 three months prior to his death from cancer. Some grandchildren are scattered about. Mr. Cook
was an Eagle Scout, and was in the Scout Program for many years, serving as Scoutmaster, Explorer
Advisor and Committeeman. Resources: Cook Family Bible; Memory.

See Uncle Bunny's Autobiography also on this web site. It tells the
story of a boy growing up with morals and character and who went
to war for very moral reasons. Flying over Germany in 1944, alone,

under fire, is something I can not ever see myself having the
courage to do. He was, very obviously, in possession of the
"right stuff". Bunny had 21 happy years with his second wife
"Kate". When I recently spoke with Kate (gaining permission to
publish Uncle Bunny's biography on my web site) she said that they
were 21 years without an argument. That seems remarkable to
me. He was loved and respected by his Step son, his wife and
four children. He died of colon and liver cancer in the
Thompson Hospital. Bunny was a painter and worked with his
father, Roy Benson Sr., for many years. He and Kate were
members of the Congregational Church.
