Clate Cook is a representative and enterprising young agriculturist of Saunders county, living on section 16,
Stocking township. His birth occurred in this county on the 25th of March, 878, his parents being J. D. and Rhoda
Cook, the former one of the early settlers of Saunders county who is now living in Wahoo. Clate Cook acquired his
early education in the common schools of this county, also pursued a high school course at Wahoo and subsequently
spent a year as a student in the Fremont Normal College. When twenty three years of age he left that institution
and during the following two years was engaged in farming in association with his brother, Charles A. Cook. He
then located on his father's farm and has since been busily engaged in the cultivation of a two hundred acre tract
of land south of Wahoo and a quarter section west of the town. The fields are in a high state of productivity and
annually produce abundant harvests, which well repay him for the labor expended in their cultivation.
On the 5th of October, 1904, Mr. Cook was united in marriage to Miss Jessie Snyder, her parents being F. J. and
Elizabeth Snyder, early settlers of Wahoo. They have two children, Franklin Joel and Katheryn Elizabeth, who are
attending school in Wahoo.
Mr. Cook is a republican in his political views but casts an independent ballot at local elections, considering
the capability of a candidate rather than his party affiliation. His religious faith is that of the Congregational
church, the teachings of which he exemplifies in his daily conduct. His entire life has been passed in this county
and the circle of his friends is almost coextensive with the circle of his acquaintance.
