Cook's expected arrival from his first trip around the world, and convey his ship to England. He was also a direct descendant of the Dr. Honyman, who extracted by command, the fifth rib from the side of James V, King of Scotland, which rib was transmitted to him by his ancestors, and he by will to his only son with the request, "that he will carefully keep the said rib, and carefully transmit it to his descendants." Mr. and Mrs. Oldham were born and raised in Virginia; he was a graduate of the Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia, and one of the noted physicians of his State; they moved to Lauderdale County in 1838, and he died in 1860 and left three sons none now living.
