I need some help again I was hoping you could help me find records on a G.M.Crook I believe his full name is Gabe Matthew Crook I also believe he would sign his name as "Matt." I have census record showing he was married to a Mary J. Averett on May 02, 1854 Fayette, Tennessee. He has signed a couple of death certificates I've found. He lived to be 92 years old I have a copy of his death certificate he died 8-19-1934. And census tells me his estimated birth date was in 1842. But I dont have any proof of it and was hoping to find a birth certificate on him. My family is questing if G.M.Crook is Matt liked he had signed on W.S.Crooks death certificate and also on Robert L. Crooks death certificates. The other signatures he signed as G.M.Crook despite the matching of wives. They still question because he would had gotten married at the age of 13 and they dont think boys got married that young. But since we dont know his exact date of birth we dont know he could had been close to 14yrs of age, if we knew the month. Maybe also if you could send a couple of the marriage license I have the citing reference for that its FHL microfilm 1003129. I do believe that Matt is G.M. Crook and I hoping with more vital records I can prove it. I really hope you can help me your actions will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Cassie
