    Notes 
    • From: Cook(e)/Kissock family bible
      Births; Mary B. Irish born March 24, 1891

      From: Joe Travis
      This is my maternal grandmother. While known by most as 'Marie' (even in Soc. Sec. records as below), the name given at birth was 'Mary'. Apparently she began to be referred to as 'Marie' early in her life to distinguish her from another 'Mary' in the family - a situation that annoyed her. She lived with us for a short time in Utah when I was abt. 15-16 yrs. old (1963-1964). We spent many hours together as she told me tales of her earlier life in 'Upstate NY' - she and grandfather's first car, bootleggers during the prohibition, a vacation to Cape Cod interrupted by a devastating hurricane, etc. [wish I had paid more attention at the time - and had asked many more questions]. She and mother didn't appear to like each other very much [but I can't remember many people mother DID like].

      A staunch Methodist, she kept the Cook(e)/Kissock family bible in the garage for many years 'cuz she wouldn't allow a Catholic bible in her home. I remember that she made great blueberry jam and watermelon preserves. Phyllis Marie Kissock writes that Diana Lee (Travis) Benson has "my mother's bible". Buried 29 Sep. 1972 at Windham Cemetery, Windham, Greene Co., NY (along State Route 23). I have a number of photos.
