Cook, Albert Alfred (1875–1948)

Albert Cook, n.d.

Albert Cook, n.d.

The passing yesterday of Mr. Albert A. Cook, of Greenmount, removes one of Mackay's most distinguished personalities. Mr. Cook had not been well for the past few months and yesterday he passed quietly and peacefully to his reward. Mr. Cook was a native of Mackay. He was born at Balnagowan, the son of one of our earliest settlers, the late Mr. John Cook, who came from New South Wales, where his brother, Mr. Tom Cook, owned the celebrated Duranville Station near Scone. Mr. Albert Cook married a Mackay girl, then Miss Althea Atherton, by whom he is survived. He leaves also a son, Mr. Tom Cook; a daughter, Miss Althea Cook; and two sisters, Mrs. Ethel Glenny, of Sydney, and Mrs. Cissie Thompson, of Western Australia.
