Email received 1 Jan 2004:

Greetings Mr. Clayton,
My name is Bradley Cook and I am writing in regard to the information I found on your website at clayton-clan.Com.
On your site () under the surname GALLANT there is reference to "Gallant, Katie Corine [Female] b. 3 Jul 1888 , Mecklenburg, NC who married "Cook, Walter R [Male]" on 14 Oct 1911.
I believe that I can state with about a 99accuracy that these two are/were my Great Grandparents. My Grandfather [Robert Joe Cook, Sr.] has confirmed with me that his father was named Walter R. Cook (the R. stood for Raymond) and that his mother was Katie Corine Gallant, both originally from North Carolina. Katie (whom on occasion was sometimes called Katherine, though she preferred Katie) was born in Gastonia, NC and her father's name was Thomas Augustus Gallant of North Carolina. She also had a brother named Augustus Gallant, who did in fact marry the older sister (Gussie Lois Cook) of her husband (Walter R. Cook). This produced a well remembered instance of "double cousins" within my family lore. According to my grandfather, Gussie and Gus both moved to Florida and the last time he spoke or saw them was just after World War II while he was re-entering the States after his tour of duty. I believe he said it was in Miami, or thereabouts. Also, my Grandfather, Father, Brother, and even Nephew all share the first name Robert, which was originally given to my grandfather, who was named after Katie's brother Robert Lee Gallant.
Walter and Katie left NC and lived a short time in West Virginia, where they had at least one of their first three children (they had a total of six). They may have also lived in KY for a short while at this time too. My information is a bit sketchy here because I do not have all my notes available (though I will certainly get it to you if you're interested), but their first child was a daughter, who died in 1926 at a very young age (don't remember the name at the moment), followed by Walter, Jr., and Mae (who was definitely born in W.VA). The family then moved back to Newton, NC where my grandfather, Robert Joe Cook, Sr. was born. They then moved to Lexington, KY where they spent the rest of their lives, having three more children (Buel, Ruth, and Gene). Walter was a well skilled stone carver and specialized in making tombstones. In fact, my father seems to recall that Walter made the gravestone for his first born daughter and she is buried along with Walter and Katie in Lexington, KY. My father will know the exact cemetery. Walter died before the end of World War II about 1941-43 and Katie died in the late 1950s -- early 1960s. I can probably get more accurate information if you'd like. Robert J. Cook, Sr. had four children, the first of which was my father, Robert Joe Cook, Jr. He has five children (one adopted) and we all live in California. I also have some information about the marriages and children of all of Walter and Katie's children if you'd like to know that as well. My Grand Aunts Mae and Ruth are both alive in Lexington, KY and they will be able to give me more information about their mother Katie. Unfortunately, my grandfather is not the type of person who expresses much interest in this sort of thing, however, he believes that he has the marriage certificate of Walter and Katie which may provide some documentation if your interested (documents are the mainstay of good genealogy IMHO). I may also be able to get some photos of Katie and Walter.
As I said, Mae and Ruth are both in their 80's but still possess clear memories and might be a little more helpful with dates, names, and places. I'm a bit of a novice at genealogy, but I'd like to be able to help you fill out your family tree as well as my own. :-)
Finally, I'd just like to thank you for all your work. My father's side of the family has always been extremely difficult to map out and finding your web site was amazing (and a bit lucky)! With your help, I've managed to track the Gallant branch of family back to about 1727 and may have gotten a few clues about the most elusive COOK branch of my family. You see, the truth is that I have hit a temporary dead-end with Walter R. Cook and I can't seem to gather any information about his parents. If you know of anything more about Walter or Gussie Cook of NC, please let me know.
Also, I'd be interested in any documents, photos, etc. you may possess of the Gallant family, I never knew Katie (she died about 25 years before I was born), but have been told that my sister looks alot like her and my older relatives have told me and my father that we have what they call "the Gallant hair", whatever that means. :-)
At any rate, if I can provide you with any more information just let me know. Also, if you know of anyone who may be more of a GALLANT expert than yourself (should this be branch you're not overly interested in), perhaps you can point me in their direction. It has been my experience that there is usually at least one person in each family branch who has collected everything they can about that particular branch, sometimes even publishing books or family albums (fingers crossed) and if that is the case then I would enjoy comparing notes, pictures, documents, etc. with them.
Thanks once again.
Sincerely,
Bradley Cook

After his father died, William went to live with "Aunt Lizze" and "Uncle John"
in Charlotte. This was Anna Elizabeth Gallant and her husb., John T. Wilkie.
They were in their mid-30s by then and childless, and he was about 11 yrs. old.
At some point, they had a Columbia, SC, photographer take a formal photo of
him, and it was perhaps the only memorabilia from his childhood he kept for the
rest of his life. On the back is written William Gallant, "while he was his
Uncle John and Aunt Lizzie's little boy."
There is an entry in his mother's bible showing he was m. in 1917, but the name
of his bride is obscured, and there is no day or month, indicating his mother's
information was at best second hand. That same yr. he joined the Army and
served in France. After the war, he lived for a time in Toledo, OH, and he is
suppposed to have told his second mother in law, Grace Randall, that his first
wife and a child died there. By 1925, he was in Ft. Wayne, IN, and met and m.
Virginia Randall, who had divorced her first husband, Henry Ballingall, several
yrs. earlier, after a brief, abusive marriage.
William and a bro. in law, Jack Holmes, started an outdoor advertising
business, the G & H Sign Co., backed by their father in law who was its
treasurer. It became a victim of the Depression. He then went to work
for the Brinkman Sign Co. and remained with that firm as a salesman until his
retirement in the early 1960s. Virginia died in 1937, and in 1941, he m. a
French-Canadian woman, Clarette Hammel who, with three of her sisters, had been
vaudvillians for a number of yrs. Leaving the stage, she had m. and then
divorced a doctor in CA and come to Ft. Wayne to live with a sister. In 1961,
she was diagnosed as having cancer, and went to Windsor, Ont. where two of her
sisters were living, and where she would be covered by Windsor Medical
Insurance. While there, William had a heart attack, and she died only a few
weeks before him.
Bill Gallant was a pleasant, friendly man who liked people, fishing, beer and
"betting on the ponies."
