remainder of their lives.  True was a very successful farmer at North Bergen
and Clarendon; he owned several bundred acres at both locations.  He provided
a home for his father after he retired and diring the the last years of his life. 
Although the census records show that True and Mary had a son and a daughter
no further mention of them is found after 1840, we are unable to determine either
their names or their destiny.  True was active in town politics as well as family affairs.
Upon his death his entire estate went to his wife and then to the Dawson
family when she died.


True married Mary Ann Dawson  estimated 1814. Mary was born on 18 May 1800. She died on 26 May 1885.

Amy Huling 09 Jan 1808. Amy was born 02 Feb
1789. Amy died 20 Aug 1867 in Saratoga County,
New York, at age 78. I have recently discovered
that the following information relates to another
Lyman Cook, not ours. I am not sure that I have
the spouse correct. I have kept the records in my
data base on the descendants of that Lyman Cook,
although I don't believe them to be related to
us.

I will keep looking for information on our Lyman,
who, I believe died in a poor house in Michigan.
Another rumor is Buffalo, Wisconcin and that his
wifes name was Sally (more reliable).
Born at Northbury, Connecticut the eldest of
Lemuel's children, came to New York at an early
date and settled in Saratoga County where he
lived throughout his life. Resided at Saratoga
Springs and Milton, New York. He may have moved
to Clarendon, New York for a short time but

     Sarah C. Burr was the first wife of Dewitt. Sarah died on march 2, 1839 at age 20 due to
complications of giving birth to George Newton, Dewitts first son. During the next several
months, while Dewitt was at work, Sarah's older sister Celestia cared for and became attached
to the child, who was sickly and required constant care. on Sept. 9, 1839 George
Newton died at age 7 months and 13 days. Dewitt and Celestia, both grieving deeply over

had three more children and there are literally hundreds of living ancesters like myself.

Homer was Born at Pompey Onondaga Co. NY he worked with his father on_the farm at Clarendon
while obtaining his education. He was a_teacher at Clarendon and Elba, his wife, Mary Ann Cook, was
the dau. of Enos_Pomeroy and Polly (Sutton) Cook, Polly is buried in old cemetery in Byron, New York,.
... ,
Daniel Cook was a descendant of Aaron Cook, a different Cook line.  This can be confusing
because of the two Cook lines:
Following is my attempt to make it clear.
 
Daniel, (no relationship to Lemuel Cook) and Rebecca Pomeroy had son, Enos Pomeroy Cook
Enos Pomeroy Cook and Polly had a daughtr, May Ann Cook.
 
Mary Ann Cook married Homer Cook, who named their son after her father, Enos Pomeroy Cook. 
In essence what we have is a descendant of Daniel , Mary Ann, marrying a descendant f our
Lemuel......which, if I am correct, means I am a descendant of the original Aaron Cook from whom
Daniel is descended , as well as Lemuel.
Both were Revolutionary Soldiers....maybe I'll start tracing Daniel...I did at one time but those
papers have disappeared or perhaps I gave them to someone and don't remember who.

Colonel Edward Belmont COOK was born about 1867. He died before 1890; listed
as a child of Edward James Cook in a genealogy of the Hill family. I have no proof
of this relationship and although this is a credible source, I am Skeptical. It seems
to me that, if this person existed in my family I should see him mentioned in our
history some place. I hope that some one out there will know and contact me at
