      Andrew Cooksey and Sarah Perrie had a dau. Margaret Perrie Cooksey.

      Mar. 2, 1810 - The Prince George's Co., Md. Inventory of
      Andrew Cooksey.
      Inventory value (includes Negro slave Allen): $584.35.
      Administrator: Sarah Cooksey filed the inventory June 26,
      1810.
      Source: Prince George1s Co., Md. Inventories, Liber TT
      No. I, p. 373.

      1810 - Andrew died before the 1810 Census of Prince George1s
      Co. was taken. His widow Sarah is believed to be the S.
      Cooksey in the 1810 Census of Washington and Prince Frederick
      Hundreds, Prince George's Co., Md., p. 16, as follows:
      10000-00100-00.
      Comment: Sarah is only 2 dwellings away from James Cooksey
      in this Census and the Census is not in alphabetical order
      (they are separated by W. Hooper.) At this writing it is
      believed that this James Cooksey is Sarah's stepson, not
      brother-in-law of the same name. See the special section
      below entitled "Cookseys in the 1810 Census of Prince George's
      June 26, 1810 - The results of the Andrew Cooksey estate
      sale are filed in Prince George's Co. by Sarah Cooksey.
      Total sale proceeds: $538.27.
      Most of the articles were purchased by Sarah Cooksey. Other
      purchasers were Margaret Cooksey (bed), Mary Cooksey (bed)
      and James Cooksey (harrow.)

      Feb. 22, 1814 - The final Prince George's Co., Md.
      administration account of Andrew Cooksey.
      Administratrix: Sarah Cooksey.
      Balance of previous account: $446.44.
      Payments made by the estate (including a payment to son-iolaw
      Elijah Ellis): $91.75.
      Estate balance: $354.66.
      Distribution of the balance: 1/3 to the widow; the residue
      to be equally divided among the deceased's 6 children [not
      named. ]

      On Feb. 27, 1816, the administratrix Sarah Cooksey made oath
      that this was a true account.
      Source: Prince George's Co., Md. Administration Accounts,
      Liber TT No.2, p. 133.
      Comment: This administration account shows that Sarah's
      share of the estate balance is $118.22 and each of the 6
      children's share is $39.40.

      The following quotation is from Mel Cooksey (no date or
      source given): "From the estate file of Andrew Cooksey,
      deceased ... William W. and Albert Cooksey signed for their
      share of $39.40 each as sons of Andrew. Margaret Cooksey,
      dau. of Andrew Cooksey, filed in Court a petition against
      the wife. Sarah, to settle the estate."
      This record shows that Sarah had not remarried by Feb.
      1816. Is she the Sarah Cooksey who m. Hugh Perrie in Prince
      George's Co. in July 1817? Is she the Sarah Cooksey who
      m. William Smith in Prince George's Co. in Sep. 1817?
