Edith Wilson Harber married Earl P. Cook, Jr. of Atlanta, Georgia in 1947. The Georgia roots of Edith Cook's genealogy begin with the Dicks family in the late 1700s. Jonathon Dicks married Isabella Collier in 1812 in Savannah, Georgia. Their daughter, Anna Isabella Dicks, married George Pegram Wagnon; and their daughter, Alice Ione Dicks married James Lorenzo Bell, a Confederate Civil War veteran. James and Alice's daughter, Eva Eliza Bell, married Manson Wilson, the son of W. A. Wilson, who also served in the Confederate Army. One of Eva's daughters, May Hall Wilson, married Paul T. Harber. The couple had a daughter, Edith Wilson Harber. Genealogical information concerning the extended family of Earl P. Cook, Jr. has not been determined.
