I am researching Mrs. Jeanie Gooch.

Mrs. Jeanie Gooch was the cook/housekeeper for Prime Minister Mackenzie King of Canada for the years 1946 to his death in the 1950's.

According to the Prime Minister's diaries, the following information on Jeanie Gooch was obtained:

October 22, 1946 - dictated letter to Mrs. Gooch of Long Island seeing if she is willing to be engaged as a cook.  The following are passages from his diaries which mention dates and places in New York, Long Island, Jamestown and Hamilton and a club called the "Tamahac" (or Tamarack) in Hamilton (does it  exist today?).

I presume her children's surnames are "Simpson".  I believe her maiden surname was Hunter and that she may have remarried a Gooch when she was in South Africa.  Anything anyone could do to put me in the right direction to find her and her descendants in New York would be greatly appreciated.  Regards Cheryl.

October 25, 1946 - when I got back to the Biltmore, I was pleased to discover that Mrs. Gooch, who had been cook at the Tamaharic (Tamahak) (Tamarack) Club of Hamilton, had come in answer to a letter. ...There is no question in the world about her efficiency as a cook.   She has been twenty years at the Tamaharic Club, (lived in Scotland).  When she left the club the members voted her congratulations on a motion by General Newbourne.  Mrs. Hendyne (Hendrie) knows her well and feels satisfied she will be exceptionally good for Laurier House.  I am sure that the fact that she came in from her son's residence today to speak about the position makes clear her readiness to take the position.
November 5, 1946 - special delivery letter from Mrs. Jean Gooch from N.Y.L.I.

December 30, 1946.  Letter from New was from a Mrs. McLaughlin with whom Mrs. Gooch has been employed as a cook ever since.  She went to N.Y. at a salary of $50, a week.

February 23, 1947 - Tonight Mrs. Gooch came up and talk for a little while.  She is kindly and quite entertaining.  She told us tonight of having lived with the Duke of Roxborough in Scotland and later to have gone to South Africa with Lord Chamberlain.  I wish I could have secured her services about 10 years ago...

April 26, 1947 - ...Lily Hendrie, of Hamilton, and Brigadier and Mrs. Farmer, with whom she is staying, come for afternoon tea.  Lily went out to speak to Mrs. Gooch.

June 2, 1947 - ...spent a little time with Mrs. Gooch planning dinner for the President (of USA) and luncheon for the Cardinals....

Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone know the names of the children of Abraham Cook, born about 1715 and his wife, Sibyl Burnett, she was the daughter of Ephraim Burnett.  They both were probably born at Southampton, Suffolk, LI, NY.  They married on October 3, 1740 in Southampton, LI, NY.  They removed to Hampton, Morris County, NJ, but I am not sure when.  They also lived in the Parsippany, Morris, NJ area.
