NEW INFO. Mary, wife of Stephen Cooke, was not a Branch. She was a Sandefur. Her mother was Joanna Branch,
Order Book 18, page 2: Cumberland County, July, 1792-
"John Deane & Elizabeth Ridley, his wife and John Sandefur, Plaintiffs
Stephen Cooke & John Woodson, exors of Abraham Sandefur, deceased; Joanna Porter; George Smith & Frances, his wife; Stephen Cooke & Mary, his wife; Dianna Sandefur; Abraham Sandefur; and Matthew Sandefur, children and Legatees of Abraham Sandefur, deceased, Defendants..........."

From this case we know that Abraham Sandefur & Joanna Branch had the following issue:
       1. Frances who mrd George Stovall Smith
       2. Elizabeth Ridley, who mrd John Deane
       3. Mary, who mrd STEPHEN COOKE
       4. Dianna
       5. John
       6. Abraham       
       7. Matthew
       8. Joanna? Either a daughter mrd. a Mr. Porter, or the widow remarried.

Stephen & Mary were alloted, by this order, slaves Bartlet, Lucy, Sall, & Harry from Sandefur's estate.
