- Carolyn Odle Smotherman has a wide variety of Bedford Co. materials.
- We also have a volunteer that will do lookups from the following book: The Cook Family in America Bedford County, Tennessee. It was published in 1973 by Jerry Wayne Cook of Normandy, Tennessee. It appears to be a very detailed book dealing with the descendants of Thomas and Milly Cook from 1770-1973. There is a very good index. There are many Xeroxed copies of pictures, transcribed legal papers, etc. The owner of the book wishes to remain anonymous, so please send requests for lookups to Charles Reeves, Jr.
