Overview
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Ransom Cook was an inventor who lived much of his life in Saratoga Springs, New York. He was born in Wallingford, Connecticut in 1794. His family moved to the village of East Line around 1802, where his father opened a furniture shop. In 1813, Cook set up a shop of his own in Saratoga Springs. Five years later he married Rachael Ayers, whom he remained with for the rest of his life. Soon after his marriage, Cook built a new furniture shop on Congress Street and enjoyed a successful business. A man named Thomas Davenport of Vermont visited him in 1837, and the two developed a new electro-magnetic motor that was many years ahead of its time. Although the motor required more energy to generate than a steam engine did, the concepts of it were used by future inventors.
