1. Biographical notes:

 

Born before 1765 in Germany (also seen: b. 1750 in Oppenheim Twp, Fulton Co., NY).  Died 12 February 1823 in Montgomery or Fulton County, New York.  An ancestor of the German immigrants to America in the early 1700s who were among the first settlers of the Mohawk River valley of New York.  Oppenheim Township, New York (and surrounding townships of then Montgomery Co., NY) was settled by the Palatine Germans who originally lived in Oppenheim Township, Germany in the Rhine River valley.  At some point John changed the spelling of his surname to Cool.

 

Probate abstract from "Compendium of Early Mohawk Valley Families," Volume I by Maryly B. Penrose, c. 1990, published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc.

Cool, Truman J. (84) #.jpg

 

1. Biographical notes:

 

Reported to be the 4th son of Jonathan and Susan (?) Cool, but appears to be the 2nd son.  Born 7 June 1831/32 in Montgomery County, New York.  Died 7 June 1867 in Clayton Township, Jefferson County, New York; interred Fox Creek Cemetery, Lyme Township, Jefferson County.  According to Lorenzo Dow Cool’s 1900 U.S. Census record, his father (Truman Cool) was born in Connecticut.  However, that is in conflict with Truman's Census record, which indicates he was born in New York State.  He was living on his own by 1860, and apparently met and married his wife, Sarah, at Three Mile Bay, New York.  At one point was employed as a cobbler (shoe maker) at French Creek (now Clayton), New York (his father was a cobbler).  The 1850 Census, just after he left school, records his occupation as wagon maker.  (note: Sarah Ellen (Cool) Montei said her Grandfather Cool (this Truman Cool) was employed as a blacksmith.)  Truman's farm residence was near the Fox Creek Cemetery.

 

Truman died from complications of pneumonia on 7 June 1867, age 36, after over exerting and over exposing himself to the cold, spring waters of Lake Ontario while helping to unload a ship loaded with grain that sank at Clayton, Jefferson County, New York; interred 10 June in the back right corner (from the road) of Fox Creek Cemetery, Point Peninsula, Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York beneath a tall, slim, blue-grey headstone.  Note: Fox Creek Cemetery is located on Fox Creek Road, which is approximately 2.2 miles north on Route 12E from the bridge in the middle of Three Mile Bay, Town of Lyme, Jefferson County, New York.  Turn left onto Fox Creek Road and the cemetery is approximately three miles away on the right, adjacent to the road.

 

2. Wife: Sarah Ann Bennett

 

Born 22/19 June 1837/34 in Pennsylvania (per daughter, Clarissa's census record)(also seen: b. Lyme Twp, Jefferson Co., NY), daughter of Peter Cornelius (b. 18 Jun 1805 in Saratoga Co., N.Y., d. 5 Feb 1883 in Clayton Township, N.Y.; interred 7 Feb 1883 at Clayton Village Cemetery) and Clarissa (Steele) Bennett (b. Dec 1808 in VT, m. 13 Nov 1827 in Montgomery Co., N.Y., d. 3 Feb 1892 at Clayton; interred Clayton Village Cemetery).  Baptized 22 June 1879 at the Three Mile Bay Baptist Church, Lyme Township.  Sarah and Truman were married 7 August 1852 in Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

After Truman's death, Sarah's parents took the remainder of the family in and helped raise the seven children until they were old enough to take care of themselves.  Sarah died 13 October 1881/84 (age 47 years, 3 months, 21 days) at the household of William A. Dye in Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York (also seen: Lyme Twp, Jefferson Co., NY); interred beside Truman Cool in Fox Creek Cemetery.  When her oldest child, Lorenzo, got married (1 Jan 1878), all of the younger children accompanied him west to Michigan that fall, but some soon returned to Jefferson County, New York.

1. Biographical notes:

 

Eldest child of Truman and Sarah Ann (Bennett) Cool.  Born 20 February 1855 at his parents' residence at French Creek (Three Mile Bay), Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York (also seen: b. Pinkney Twp, Lewis Co., N.Y., which is on the western border of Lewis Co., S.E. of Watertown).  According to relatives who knew him well, Lorenzo was named after Lorenzo Dow, an itinerant preacher of the period (though it’s interesting to note that Lorenzo also had a 1st cousin, once removed, named Lorenzo D. Cool (oldest son of his grandfather’s brother, John P. Cool)).

 

Lorenzo was just 13 years old when his father died.  He, his mother, and siblings resided with his Bennett grandparents for a couple of years, but at about age 15 Lorenzo became a sailor on the Great Lakes, helping to support his mother and siblings.  In that capacity, he was in Chicago for 3 days during the great fire of 1871, where his ship would have burned if the ship's Captain hadn't paid $50 to have it towed out into Lake Michigan.

 

Lorenzo had been sailing the Great Lakes for 7 years when he was married on 1 January 1878.  By most accounts (from his children), his eventual wife, Anna Brown, agreed to marriage on condition that Lorenzo retire from sailing.  She didn't like the prospect of having Lorenzo away from home for such long periods of time, and she was afraid for Lorenzo's safety, remembering how her father had died (drowned in the St. Lawrence River).  So in the fall of 1878, just before the birth of their oldest child (Sadie), Lorenzo retired from sailing and moved his family (including his younger siblings) to Michigan, initially settling in Almer Township, Tuscola County.  His mother stayed in northern New York State, where she died a very few years later.  Apparently Lorenzo was assisted in this move by his Uncle William Orlando Bennett, who had moved to Michigan the year before (1877).  Soon thereafter Lorenzo moved to Caro, Indianfields Township, Tuscola County, Michigan, where daughter Sadie was born.  Lorenzo managed a farm near Caro, and in 1900 was employed as an egg buyer.  All of their children were born in Michigan.

 

On 8 March 1899 their daughter, Sadie, was married to John Dedrick Norman Montei and settled nearby in Fairgrove Township, Tuscola County, Michigan.  According to Sadie's daughter, Anna (Montei) Heiss, when Lorenzo and Anna's son, Stanley was about 21 years old (probably 1904) he travelled to Evans Mills, LeRay Township, Jefferson County, New York to visit his uncle, Jasper J. Cool, who had accompanied Lorenzo to Michigan, but later returned to New York, settling near Evans Mills.  While on that visit Stanley Cool met and fell in love with a local girl, Louise "Lulu" Mehitable Drake, who lived on a farm on the road between Evans Mills and nearby LeRaysville.  Stanley returned to Michigan for a short period of time, but soon returned to northern New York to settle down, marrying Lulu there on 1 January 1907.  Lorenzo did not like being separated from his only son and farming partner, Stanley, so shortly after Stanley's departure, it appears Lorenzo moved his family (except for married daughter Sadie) to LeRay Township, New York, and they were residing there, with Stanley, on Slocumville Road (also known as Gardner Road) at the time of the 1905 New York State Census.  However, by 1910 Lorenzo, Anna, and their two unmarried daughters, Martha and Roxanna, again resided on a farm in Tuscola County, Michigan.  By 1911, when Lorenzo's daughter, Martha graduated from the Chicago School of Music, Lorenzo and family again resided in LeRay Township, New York, renting a farm at Ward's Corners (where Bedlam Road intersected Pearl Street (the road between Evans Mills and LeRaysville)).  Of interest, the obituary for Anna (Brown) Cool said: "Mr. Cool [Lorenzo] operated a farm jointly with his son."

 

That farm was initially founded by Thomas (d. 1821, age 44; interred Sheepfold Cem.) and Mary (?) Ward (d. 1864, age 86; interred Sheepfold Cem.), then operated by J. Ward, and after that by the Cools, followed by the Buskirk family.  Lorenzo’s daughters, Martha and Roxanna, were both married in the parlor of the residence at Ward's Corners.  Sometime between 1916 and, perhaps, 1919 Lorenzo retired to a small "hobby" farm (perhaps 40-acre) closer to LeRaysville on Pearl Street, and in 1920 described his employment as "Teamster" (a transporter of goods; originally one who piloted horse-drawn wagons, and later one who drives an engine-powered truck).  Presumably at the same time, his son, Stanley, bought an approximately 100 acre farm on the opposite side of Pearl Street, about ¼ mile from his parents in the Village of LaRaysville.  Lorenzo continued to farm that property until failing health forced him to retire.  Lorenzo's daughter, Martha (Cool) Slater, and her family lived there after Lorenzo’s death in 1929.

 

Lorenzo died Monday evening, 29 July 1929, age 74, from complications of a cerebral hemorrhage at his residence outside the Village of LeRaysville, LeRay Township; he was diabetic (controlled via diet) and had been in failing health for several years.  Funeral services were conducted at his home on Thursday afternoon, 1 August at 2 P.M., with Reverend Louis Bruce, pastor of the Evans Mills Methodist-Episcopal church, officiating.  Lorenzo and his wife, Anna, were interred near the middle of the oldest part of the Black River, New York Cemetery on Route 3 outside the village of Black River, Rutland Township, Jefferson County.  He was a member of the Pisgah Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, as well as the Great Bend, New York Grange.

3. Wife: Anna Kindedine Brown (photos) (more info)

 

Born 3 April 1855 on a ship in New York City harbor * (not clear when or why her parents were in the New York City area), daughter of George William and Ellen Jane (Jones) Brown (later) of Gananoque Township, Ontario, Canada.  Died Tuesday, 10 June 1952, age 97, from complications of a stroke and old age at her daughter, Roxanna’s farm residence on Allendale Road, about 1 mile south of the Village of Adams, Adams Township, Jefferson County, New York; funeral at the Adams United Methodist Church; interred beside Lorenzo in the Black River Cemetery.  In the preceding months Anna's doctor had told Roxanna that Anna also had a slow progressing abdominal cancer of some sort, but it would not kill her.  Her son-in-law, J.D. Montei wrote to his daughter, Pauline: "Mother had a stroke I guess, as her right arm was helpless and she could not talk and had to take liquids.  Roxie said what would run down itself.  She didn't seem in pain and was not conscious at last.  Yes, no matter how one thinks they are ready for it, its still a shock, a sense of loneliness comes over one.  We are glad she did not last a long time and suffer a lot.  She looked lovely, had a nice burial.  You know she got [an] old age pension and the undertaker took charge of it and we added to it and it was nice."

 

While still an infant, Anna moved with her parents from New York City to Gananoque, Ontario, Canada (probably via northern NYS), where her father had grown up from age 6.  She was age 11 when her father died, so she went to work for others, helping support her family.  In 1876 Anna returned to the United States from Canada with her widowed mother and siblings, and they resided in the Village of Clayton, Clayton Township, Jefferson County, New York.  She married Lorenzo Dow Cool on 1 January 1878 (almost age 23) at Three Mile Bay, Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York.  Of interest, Anna was age 45 when her last child, Roxanna, was born.

 

After Lorenzo’s death, July 1929, Anna moved to Pierrepont Manor, Jefferson County, New York for several years to work as a live-in housekeeper for Anna Huggins, who lived there in a large house beside her mother’s residence.  Of interest, Anna (Drake) Burdick recalled that the first set of matching dishes (plates, bowls, cups, etc.) that the Almond Drake family ever had were discards from the Huggins household.  Anna Drake also recalled that while in high school she often wore a dress made by her mother largely from cloth derived from a coat that Anna Huggins had given her grandmother, Anna Cool.

 

In the mid to late 1930s Anna (Brown) Cool moved from Pierrepont Manor to live with her sister, Emma Isabelle (Brown) Marshall, in Clayton, Jefferson County, New York.  However, her bedroom was on the 3rd floor, and it was tough, at her age, to not only climb and descend the stairs, but, during the winter months, to carry coal up to her room and carry ashes back down.  At age 85 (1940), when she caught pneumonia and needed a less physically demanding living arrangement, her son, Stanley Dow Cool, asked her to move back to LeRaysville to live with his family.

 

Like others in the LeRaysville area, in the fall of 1941 Stanley and his family had to relocate to make way for the expansion of Pine Camp.  Stanley moved into the Village of Evans Mills and started working for the St. Regis Paper Company at Deferiet, Wilna Township, New York.  Stanley’s (1st) wife, Louise Mehitable (Drake) Cool died in 1942, and shortly afterward Stanley hired Kitty Chaplin as a live-in housekeeper; Anna Cool apparently got along well with Kitty.  In 1945 Stanley married (2nd), as her 2nd husband, Grace Hicks of Detroit, Michigan (a friend of his sister, Martha (Cool) Slater, who had resided for a period of time near Grace’s family in Detroit).  For reasons that aren’t clear, Anna Cool was not happy residing in the same household with Grace (Hicks) Cool (By all accounts, Anna had a will of steel and would not be described as "easy going," undoubtedly the product of a hard life.

 

In 1947, in preparation for a week-long trip to and from Detroit to see his son, George Lorenzo Cool, Stanley transported his mother to the residence of his sister, Roxanna, on Ikey’s Road (Taylor Settlement area) about 2 miles outside (to the southwest) of the Village of Adams, Jefferson County, New York.  Anna Cool warned Stanley at that time that if she went to Roxanna’s home, she wouldn’t come back to reside with him, and that’s how she ended up residing in the Almond Henry Drake household for the remainder of her life.  When Almond and Roxanna moved from their Ikey’s Road farm to their Allendale Road farm, Anna resided in the first floor bedroom.  Almond and Roxanna slept upstairs, and Anna's two Drake grandsons still living at home, Lorenzo and Charles, slept in the basement, which also contained a coal bin and a large, coal-fired furnace.

 

In her last years Anna suffered from increasingly debilitating dementia.  The one lasting memory her grandson, Charles Melvin Drake, had of his Grandmother Cool was her frequent finger snapping, thinking that in doing so she was killing the fleas that she imagined were crawling all over her body.  Charles’ sister, Anna (Drake) Burdick, explained that what apparently triggered their grandmother’s fears were the few grains of sand that would fall from time to time from Roxanna’s pin holder, a small, strawberry-shaped cloth bag filled with sand that needles and pins (used in sewing) were stuck into for storage and cleaning.  The grains of sand looked to Anna Cool like bugs, and she reacted accordingly.

* Walter Stanley Cool recalled a trip to Michigan with his parents, siblings, and grandmother, Anna (Brown) Cool, when he was young.  To save time, they drove partially through Canada, and he distinctly remembered when his grandmother told Canadian Customs agents that she had been born in New York City harbor, which surprised Walter and his siblings to the point that they laughed out loud and said "You gotta be kidding - we didn’t know that!"  Their outburst caused the customs agents to question Anna’s account, and the car almost wasn't allowed into Canada.

 

Anna (Brown) Cool also told her granddaughter, Anna Arvilla (Drake) Burdick, that she was born in New York City.
