1) check the historical society if there is one for the area.
2) Check with the sexton of the cemetery for burial records.
3) Hannah...check marriage record for parents names?
I have a John Cole who was a Baptist minister in Livingston County, NY. He is a likely father for my George Cole (born 1812) in Seneca (which was part of Ontario county till it changed over to Livingston County. Im still researching, but go back to the earlier census records. Are there parents living with the Sherrods in later years?
NY is elusive, maybe check the land records. Just some suggestions:)
