|The Cooke family homestead, sometime in the 50's. We don't know who these people are.|
For the next picture you will need what I've constructed to show my connection to Ciaran.

|Josie Cooke, James "Jimmy" Cooke and Bridget Coffey Cooke some time in the fifties.|
If I'm understanding this correctly, this is the very same house Ciaran's brother lives in now.
You can clearly see the "bones" of the old house and wall here. I think Ciaran said they used the stone from the much older Cooke house, which is in ruins on the property, for the stone work on this house.
So nice to have these photos and a little window into my family's past.
