GEORGE F. COOKE, member of the lower house from Maricopa County, is a native of California, where he was born
in 1876. His father was a Missourian, but removed to California shortly after the rush of '49. there married a
native daughter, and made the State his permanent home. Mr. Cocke grew up on a farm, and received a thorough training
in dairying, farming and stock raising, and in the Legislature has been one of the recognized authorities on those
subjects, as well as one of the most thorough and reliable workers on the Live Stock Committee. At the present
time he is interested in stock raising and ranching in the Buckeye Valley, and is the owner of a fine ranch on
the lower Gila. Mr. Cocke has had no experience as an office holder, this being his first political office, but
his work in the Legislature at both the regular and special sessions has been highly satisfactory to all concerned.
He has served also on the Committees on Labor, Banking and Insurance, and Petitions and Memorials. Mr. Cocke was
married in 1903 to Miss Beulah Montgomery, a native of Phoenix. They have three children, a boy and two girls.
