Lucy Fields Tillson/Tilson married Francis Cook 2 June 1825 in Harrison Twp. They evidently lived in Wayne Co. IN a good part of the time, but Lucy's parents were from Darke Co. [came from VT.]. A lot of her Tillson relatives lived there and were married there.

Anyway, Lucy and Francis had four children: Thomas W., John, Mary, and Ira H. Cook. I know a good bit about Ira, but my line ocmes through Thomas W. I would love to be able to find some additional info about him, if there is any history of him in Darke Co.

Francis is listed in the 1830 Census for Darke Co. but he died in 1836...although this is slightly speculative, as Ira was born in 1836 and Lucy married Joseph Campbell in January of Darke Co. Would love to know if Francis had any brothers or sisters in the area.

I would love to know if she had any children with Benjamin Snodgrass who is supposed to be her 3rd husband, and he was married in 1817 to Lucy's sister Livia.

Thanks for any help,
