Thanks :) to Arlene who wrote that in very early Madison Co., NY, there were the towns of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson. 

1855 state census Cazenovia, Madison Co., NY
        Cook, Coonrod, age 49, District 1, Dwelling 116, family 128, resident 30 years, 3 in household (may have been German)
        COOK, RANSOM, AGE 76, Dist. 1, Dwlg. 94, family 104, resident 3 years, 3 in household; does not own dwelling
        Cook, John, age 37, District 2, Dwelling 115, family 125, resident 11 years, 5 in household
        Cook, George, age 58, Dist. 3, Dwelling 84, family 90, resident 39 years, 6 in household
        Cook, Wolcott, age 56, Dist. 3 Dwelling 116, family 125, resident 4 years, 5 in household
================================== 1855 state census Fenner, Madison Co., NY
        COOK, RANSOM B., AGE 42, dwelling 169, family 73, resident 42 years (since birth), 3 in household
1855 state census Nelson, Madison Co., NY
        Cook, Reuben, age 60, dwelling 157, family 170, resident 25 years, 6 in household (may also have been German)
The 1860 census of Madison Co., NY has
        Cook, Ransom B., age 47 (the younger Ransom above)
                 Samantha, age 47
                 Lucinda, age 76 (could she be the elder Ransom's widow?)
        Cook, Alfred S., age 23 (am wondering if this is Dwight's son)
                 Eliza, age 21    (and this his first wife?) 
Emmeretta was Alfred's second wife; Alf and Em married ca. 1864 in Yates Co., NY.)

Could Ransom born 1779, just a few years after "Arlene and my" John, who was born ca. 1772/3 be brothers? 

Thank you,
