    Notes 
    • From Edna Valentine:

      "The story my aunt told me of her (her aunt) was that at 14, with her hair in pigtails and short dresses, she packed her valise and crawled out of the window and married Charley Cooke of Yaphank and ran away to sea with him. He "followed the sea" and Sal stayed at home in Brookhaven with her daugher Cecille and I have her diary of that time. Her two chief amusements seem to have been singing school and washing clothes! I wish I had known "Sal" for she seems a person with an immense zest for life and though she couldn't spell (married at 14) she managed to put that spirit into the old diary. She certainly followed Charles Cook about for my grandmother went with them to to Galveston, when Charles was in the Customs there at the time of the Civil war. My grandmother, Martha Matthews Barteau is buried in Galveston.

    Notes 
    • From Edna Valentine:

      "Mrs. Corwin(sp), "cousin Maria", told me that Francis and Sarah were very fond of books and in the evening would sit in the doorway and read to each other. They lived in the "Old Barteau Place" on South County Road at top of hill in Brookhaven. She also said that people would come to Sall for the recipes because she was known all over as a very good cook."
