Cook Family in America, Generation 4 - Daniel Cook - 1720

The fourth generation in the Cook Family is Joseph Cook’s son Daniel, born in 1720 at Wallingford. After his father left Wallingford, Daniel married Elizabeth Pond and had two children before moving to Goshen. They had six children in Goshen where Daniel died in 1778 and Elizabeth died in 1796. Daniel was credited with providing goods for the American troops in the Revolutionary War.

For a time their children lived in Goshen, but after the war considerable new land opened for settlement, and some of their children moved west with the great American expansion. Philip died at Nassau, Rensselaer, New York; Lois married Joel Gaylord and died at Hudson, Summit, Ohio; and Lydia married Moses Bartholomew who moved his family to Vershire, Orange, Vermont.
