My Cook Family

(1) 1. William Cook

Birth Date: Before 1761

Birth Place: Germany

Death Date: 22 Feb 1841

Military History of William Cook was posted in A. L. Cook's family record as follows:

He enlisted about March 13, 1777 as a private for three years in a company commanded by Capt. David Smith, Col. Chandler's regiment of Connecticut troops. After having served about 18 months he was appointed Corporal and performed duties as corporal until the expiration of his term of service. (he was in Col. Sherman's regiment at the end of his service.)

Residence of soldier at time of enlistment was Waterbury, Litchfield Co., Connecticut. (He resided in CT until about 1796, when he moved to Pompey, NY.) Date of application for pension was January 28, 1819, residence: Pompey, NY. Age of applicant for pension was 58 years.

During the Revolutionary War William Cook and eleven companions were sent to carry dispatches and were lost by their guide. They were lost for nine days. They carried with them only three day's rations. They were very nearly starved and lived on toads and roots.

William Cook emigrated to America before the Revolutionary War was declared in 1776. As far as can be learned there were five men by the name of Cook who came to America on the same vessel. It was said that all were related and four of them enlisted in the Army.

Alfred Loren Cook stated in his family record that "if . . . William Cook had any brothers he never knew of it."

Information collected re:William Cook includes:

In 1840, Albert Cook was living in Manlius, Onandaga with father William, age 79 (and mother?) (Census of Pensioners - Revolutionary or military Service, Printed by Blair & Rives 1841)

In 1855, Albert Cook, the son of William and Asenath was a resident of Pompey, NY. [pension appl.]

In 1819, Trueworthy Cook, a resident of Granby, Oswego County, NY stated that he enlisted in Waterbury, CT with the soldier William Cook, but did not state any relationship between them. (According to a correspondence {correspondent on AOL: Trueworthy Cook was a brother of a Lemuel Cook, both sons of Henry Cook and Hannah Benham. Trueworthy was born 29 Sep 1758 in Litchfield, CT and died 29 Jul 1822 in Granby, NY.}

In 1810, Census of Pompey, NY, these five Cooks are listed: Eli, Lemuel, Henry, Truworthy [sic], and William.
