Thank you so much for the info.  I suspected Richard was Catholic.
James Cooke who died in 1872 at 59 was born in 1813.
Nicholas and Richard were both born in 1817 so they may have been twins.
I suspect they were 3 brothers who came over from Ireland together and settled in Brown Co IL.  I believe Bridget is the daughter of Richard.

Here are the names you requested. I have included the other Cooke listings since they appear to be part of the same family, and the family relationship listing on page 186. I hope these will be of help to you.
