Am seeking information on a James Cook babt or on 1797 in Hartford CT area -- migrated to PA, prob as an adult.In Bridgewater (Montrose) Twp of Susquehanna Co. PA ca 1820.
1821 married Abigail Lathrop in Middletown Center Twp (Rush) Susquehanna Co. PA.In 1822, Abigail & James had son, Hiram Cook (Hiram d 1892).In a very short period of time, Abigail & James had divorced.Abigail remarried John Sleeper b 1799 (in Corinth VT) of Bradford Co. PA around 1826.
Believe James Cook went to MI; believe he married Catherine (surname unknown)--believe he may have had a son, named James also --In 1860 Cenuss, James & Catherine are shown with a ?son/grandson named Francis of 13 yrs. bca 1848.
Any information on this second marriage?
Hiram may have never known he had half-siblings.Hiram is buried in the Sleeper Hill Cemetery where his mother and step-father are buried.These Sleeper people are my 2d gr grandparents; Hiram my 2d gr uncle--Hiram served in the Civil War; never married.Hiram is fondly remembered by the Lathrop-Sleeper Family.
