William COOK / Helen BLACK Family card

After finding the cryptic comment above, on Helen BLACK's Death Certificate {205 = BMD. Dundonald}, research led to the discovery of the following entries on page 5 of the 'Ayr Observer and Galloway Chronical' for Tuesday October 25 1859 :- {44 = Newspaper Extract : General News item. British Library Newspaper Library : Colindale}

This in turn led to the discovery that their elder son John, had died in June 1858, aged about five years. It is also interesting to note that there is no mention of the three sons of William's first marrriage, although the eldest Daniel was then only 13. Daniel's two younger siblings were found still living with their father in 1861, together with Helen's two surviving children.
