The paternal grandparents of our subject, Steward and Charity (CULVER) COHOON, were natives respectively of CT and England. The grandfather moved from his birthplace to the State of NY at an early day, and was an officer in the War of 1812. He married Miss Charity CULVER for his second wife, and in March 1820 removed from Yates County, NY, with ox teams and sleds, and settled with his large family in Erie County, PA, becoming one of the pioneers of the highlands and dense forests of that county. He remained there until his death, which occurred at Gospel Hill about 1840. His wife died in Columbia County, WI, 10 Jan 1855, at the advanced age of 87. The paternal great grandfather of our subject, Nathaniel COHOON, was born in CT, and tradition says that his parents were Hollanders. He died and was buried in Mill Creek Township, Erie County, PA, in Jan 1827.
