Captain Cooke

Located in one of the older sections of the South Ridge, this small monument reminds me of an old-fashioned tea chest. In his history of the Cemetery, Henry P. Phelps describes it only as a "queer little sandstone" and gives no information on who this Captain J. Cooke was. The inscription on the monument is almost completely eroded and not at all legible.
