I am doing research that relates to the Williams and Schermerhorn families in the area of Cayuga and Onondaga Counties.

Caroline Scheremerhorn b.1827, NY married Asahel D Cook in 1848 in Jo Daviess Co, IL. The are in the 1850 census in the household of Amaziah Williams b.1817. An 1882 biographical sketchof A D Cook says that Caroline was from Cayuga County.

Amaziah Williams b.1817 is in the 1850 and 1860 censues of Jo Daviess Co, IL and moved to Bourbon Co, KS.

I have indications that the Williams family came from the area of Cayuga Co, NY and would like to correspond with anyone interested in the Williams family in Cayuga Co, NY.

Indications are they descend from the family of Israel Williams b.1757, IL and died in Bennington Co, VT.
