RESEARCHING ALANSON COGSWELL=1798-188? HILLSDALE, MICHIGAN

Mr. Bohn
I came across your reply below to a inquiry about Francis Beard-Cogswell & the info on Alanson, so I hope you don't mind my contacting you..
I have been researching my Maternal Gr.,Gr.,Gr.Grandfather
'ALANSON COGSWELL' b: 1798 in New York (??Oneida I think) and who died aft. 1880 in or around Litchfield, Hillsdale Co.,Michigan.
From what I've been able to find, I think that he is the son of WILLIAM COGSWELL & SUSANNAH BEARD. According to the COGSWELL"S IN AMERICA, Their Son Alanson "died in early life at sea"!! However, I feel he did not die and went on to marry & have children and lived into his 80's!
As a little kid, I remember my Great Grandma, Harriet Augusta Case-Turner telling me about her Grandpa who went to sea as a young man but came back, settled down and became a farmer never to return to the sea again!
My problem is trying to definately connect him completely!! I know by Census files that he came from New York, That he was Born in 1789, He fought in the War of 1812 in New York(76th NY Infantry)and that he had (at least) two Daughters. Lydia Ann Cogswell-Church b:30 June 1824 in Elba, Genesee, New York and d: 8 June, 1876 in Homer, Calhoun, Michigan AND Caroline Cogswell-Case b: 2 Feb. 1833 in New York & d:27 March, 1887 in Homer, Calhoun, Michigan.
If anyone in the Cogswell Association (ps By the way,I hope to be joining soon)has any info on ALANSON COGSWELL, I'd greatly appreciate all replys!! I've been working on him for quite some time and I feel that the Cogswells in America Listing him as died at sea is incorrect...
Thank you for your time..
Sincerely

I BELIEVE THAT THIS WAS MY Gr.,Gr.,Gr. GRANDFATHER WHO 'DID NOT' PERISH AT SEA BUT WENT ON TO LIVE INTO HIS 80'S BEFORE DYING IN LITCHFIELD or HOMER MICHIGAN AT HIS DAUGHTER CAROLINE COGSWELL-CASE BY HIS SIDE!
