by Harris Husted, Special to the Bulletin

Eva DuVal (Cook) Duncan, or Mama Grande as she came to be known, was born in Burnet, Texas Dec. 11, 1884. She was the fourth child of James and Emily Cook. Eva could trace her lineage on her mother’s side back to Richard Sartwell (1608-1694), an English immigrant who arrived in Boston in 1635. Her great-great-grandfather on her father’s side was Valentine Cook (1729-1797) who was settled in Virginia by 1759.
