From the Cook County (Illinois) Board of Commissioner's web site.

http://www.co.cook.il.us/secretary/HomePage_Links/about_the_cook_county_board_of_c.htm

"It was the 54th county established in Illinois (on January 15, 1831) and was named after Daniel Pope Cook, one of the earliest and youngest statesmen in Illinois history."

That depends entirely on which Cook County you are requesting information about or if you actually meant to spell it as Cooke. There are four Cook or Cooke Counties in various states across the US. According to census.gov, the 2007 estimated total population of each of these Cook and Cooke Counties and which state they are located in are listed alphabetically as follows:# Cook County, Georgia: 16,432 # Cook County, Illinois: 5,285,107 # Cook County, Minnesota: 5,398 # Cooke County, Texas: 38,486
