Seventh Generation

Dewitt came to Western NY. with his father before his marriage and settled at North Bergen,
Genesee County, in 1840 he was residing in Clarendon with his wife where they lived the rest
of their lives. Dewitt was a carpenter or house joiner by trade, he built many of the frame
Buildings of the town, homes, farm buildings and schools that are still standing. His residence
was on Upper Holly Road at lot 152 which consisted of 48 acres, a short distance north of
what is now the Brown Schoolhouse Road. He was a member of the Orleans Pioneer.
His wives were born at Norfolk, Conn. Their church affiliation was Methodist. The children
were all born at Clarendon.
 
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
the loss of the child, took refuge in each other and married shortly there after. Together they
had three more children and there are literally hundreds of living ancesters like myself.
 
Dewitt is burried at Hillside cemetary in Holly, Orleans Co. NY. Also burried there are his
wives and three children. This Cook family plot is in a beautiful place on a hillside in a grove
of large trees. The cemetary is terraced and is a nice place to walk and enjoy the out of doors.

Dewitt married (1) Celestia Cynthia BURR  daughter of Elisha BURR and Cynthia BALDWIN about Sep 1839 in North Bergen, New York. Celestia was born on 17 Apr 1815 in Norfolk, Conn.. She died on 11 Oct 1896 in Clarendon, Orleans Co. New York. She was buried in Hillside Cemetary in Holly, Orleans Co. NY.  
 I believe that Celestia was born in Norfolk Conn. , but her name is not on record at the Norfolk
Town Hall. It may be that she was born somewhere else, since I have no proof. I was able to
find the birth record for Her father Elisha, on file in Norfolk.

Dewitt and Celestia were both Methodists. She lived first 18 years in Conn. accompanied parents
to Sprinwater, NY, later to Clarendon, Orleans Co.
