Harry Cook, son of Isaac D. Cook and Susan Creelman Archibald was born in Londonderry Township in NS in 1879. His life took many turns, through two more marriages of his widowed mother into diverse parts of Nova Scotia before he was able to strike out on his own. From Sydney, NS, in 1902, he moved to British Columbia where he met and married, in 1916, Scottish-born, Jean Haldane Rankin (1893-1960). Three children were born to them in BC and both Harry, who died in 1954, and Jean are buried in Royal Oak Burial Park in Victoria, BC.
