All that can now be learned about him warrants the belief that he was an Englishman, who was found upon the spot by the second, if not already by the first, immigrants from Rowley. We know positively that on his thirtieth birthday, August 14, 1764, he was married to Daniel Palmer's daughter Mary, perhaps in that church which Richard Eastiek [Estey] and Ruth Essex Institute Hist. Collections, 14.152. his wife, Jonathan Smith and Hannah his wife, were dismissed from, the First Church in Rowley, to form upon or near St. John's River, Nova Scotia, May 20, 1764. Sabine, who, with doubtful propriety, includes Joseph Garrison in his Loyalists of the American Revolution, (1.464) styles him of Massachusetts; but the name has not been met with in that State before the present century by the most diligent searchers of her archives. His comparatively early death will account for the February, 1783. diversity of t

Judd. The able and interesting History of Hadley makes frequent and honorable mention of Westwood and his son-in-law, Cooke, and presents a genealogy of their descendants. My father Samuel Cooke, about the year 1698, married Anne Marsh, daughter of Mr. Jonathan and Mrs. Dorcas Marsh, of Hadley. Besides three which died in infancy, seven of their children had families: viz., Anne, married to Aaron Cooke; Sarah, to Timothy (Emmons?); Hannah, to William Dickinson; Samuel; Mehitable, to Jonathan Smith; Miriam, to Josiah Pierce; and Jonathan. All survived our parents except Hannah. She buried six children in infancy, and her husband in 1741; she was left with two sons—six and two years old—and returned with her children to my father's house, where she died in 1745, aged 39. My father died September 16, 1746, aged 76. My mother died March, 1758, aged 77. My father by his will left his homestead at my mother's decease wholly to my brother Jonathan in lieu of my education.
