Other surnames in notes by Lynda included with this record:

Note: Absalom CARY was born and resided in Orange Co, NY. He
moved to Elmira, Chemung Co, NY c1820 where he died. Most or all of the children of Absalom
were b in Orange County. Nathaniel and Sarah (CARPENTER) COOLEY were also of Orange Co, NY.
This record is a transcript of a single page in the pension file. It was handwritten and was
probably entered into the file c1893. Murray POOLE is deceased and we are currently searching
for the original pages that were removed from the pension file and sent to M. E. POOLE. The
odd statement in this record, "leaf of the New Testament, torn apart" suggests that this record
was made from 2 separate bibles and that one was only partially included in the pension file.
It is possible that someone else may have/find the remaining pieces of the page of Nathaniel
COOLEY's bible record.

We are also looking for the bible record of Elihu CARY, the father of Absalom CARY of this
record. Elihu CARY lived in Orange and Seneca Co's, NY c 1800. Thanks, Lynda K. McGinnis.

Additional notes from Lynda K. McGinnis:
I am membership chairman of the LYONS Family Association of America .. I am especially looking
for LYON/S of Chenango Co, NY (Thomas, Samuel, Alexander, Daniel and David) and Kent and Osceola
Co's, MI. This is the location of my own LYON family. I have found reference to a bible which may
have my LYON information but, I can't find this bible's current location nor a transcript of
its records. This bible may be of the Jesse or Hezekiah BROWN family and was last owned c1920
by Olive BUCKNER of Superior, WI.
