Birth*6 February 1873Roy Uzziah Conger was born on 6 February 1873 in Oneida, Knox County, Illinois.1
(Son) Relocation12 April 1878 Within a few years of Roy's birth, his father's health began to fail. Thinking that a change in climate might help, his parents moved their family to New Mexico in 1877. His sister Alice, who was 7 years old, wrote later that she had only a dim recollection of the long journey. Roy was 4, Elizabeth 2, and Hazel was an infant. Their half-brother, Arthur, and his family made the trip also. Arthur was 26, his wife Ella was 21, and their young daughter Lucy was 3.

At that time, Trinidad, Colorado was the end of the railroad line and the family made the remainder of the trip to New Mexico on the Santa Fe Trail by stagecoach. It was a tiring and dusty trip, and would have been especially so for the young children. His father and Arthur invested together in the purchase of what was commonly known then as a "Post Traders" store at Fort Union, Mora County, New Mexico. Crayton was appointed as the post trader and they bought the Sutler's store on 12 April 1878.2,3,4
Marriage*He married Grace Fitz.1,5
No Issue*They had no children.5
Death*circa 1934He died circa 1934.1

Francis Cooke

b. after 1583, d. 7 April 1663
Birth*after 1583Francis Cooke was born after 1583 in England.
(Adult Male) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620Francis Cooke was about 37 years of age when he sailed with his son John onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.1,2,3
(Signer) Mayflower Compact11 November 1620Francis Cooke was one of the 41 adult males who signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower which was at anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.1,4,5
(Head of Company) Division of Cattle22 May 1627Francis Cooke appeared with other members of his household and "company" on the document commonly known as the 1627 "Division of Cattle" and dated 22 May 1627 in Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). The document was a complete list of all the residents of Plymouth as of May 1627 and divided them into 12 “lots,” with 13 people per lot sharing the use of one cow or calf and two goats. Families were generally kept together within each lot, and single men were listed throughout. In some places on the original document, names were scribbled in where newborns were included with the rest of their family. The attached PDF transcription was downloaded from the Mayflower History website.6,4
Death*7 April 1663He died on 7 April 1663 in Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
