Here we have the tombstone of Sylvanus and Anna (Spracklen) Cook. Sylvanus is very easy to read but Anna's is very difficult. There are also other tombstones of this family in Lee cemetery and here are two of the children Peter and George. Sylvanus and Anna had six children that I know about: Nelson, John, Langfield, George James, Peter S and Mary P.A. Cook. I have not spent a great deal of time on Anna's descendants so please by all means check what you find here. Ann or Anna would be a third great grand aunt to me and sister of John Andrews Spracklin as well as Alfred.
The publications and Find A Grave are not complete transcriptions of this cemetery and it is very difficult to read the inscriptions because of the lighting and orientation of the stones.

It would be interesting to obtain the Civil War files of these men, I have not done so at this time.
Susanna wife of Nelson was a Dildine and there are Dildines buried in this cemetery but I do not know her relationship to them. This couple is very old so it is possible they are her parents, but I do not know that for sure?
|Dildine, Allen June 23, 1898 age 92y 1d|
and Mary June 20, 1877 age 72y2d w/o A.D.
There is a mention of William Dildine in the publication I have of this cemetery
Dildine, William Co K 180 Ohio Infantry
