Let me add to this confusion! There is a marriage found in "Index to Marriages of Old Rappahannock and Essex Counties, Virginia" p. 63: 1750 Joel HALBERT and Mary COOK Book D 27 Page 71. This looks to me like the Cookes and the Halbert are related.
I've been working on this for years and cannot make the dates work out. Col. Richard Randolph was b. 1689 and his wife, Jane Bolling, was b. 1698. They supposedly had a daughter, Frances, b. ca 1715. Frances Randolph married John Jones b. ca 1705 and d. 1723. John and Frances Jones supposedly had a daughter, Frances, b. ca 1720 who married ca 1740 Joel Halbert b. ca 1712. That's impossible! This is my theory--NO PROOF. I don't anything about the marriage of Mary Biswell and Joel Halbert, but I'll assume that was marriage #1. I think his second wife was Frances Randolph Jones. What I'm saying is that it looks to me like Frances Randolph who married John Jones and Eliz. Frances Jones who married Joel Halbert are the same person. What do you think of that theory?
Here's something else to consider. There are so many John Jones it's hard to tell who's who, but the John Jones who died in 1723 in Pasquotank Co. NC mentioned in his will his Father-In-Law (this means his Step Father) was John Rolfe and his mother was named Elizabeth. Who is this John Rolfe? Somthing like that might lead some people to jump to the conclusion that he was John Rolfe, husband of Pocahontas---of course, he's not. That John Rolfe died in 1622.
