I'm looking for birth place, birth date and parentage for my #X great grandmother, Hannah Cole.

The following is the information I have:

Born: 11/17/1809 in New York State (some sources say New York City – considered unlikely)
Married: Daniel Sherrod, Jr. (1800-1888) - son of Daniel Sherrod & Margaretha unknown 2/5/1836
1850-1860 censuses: Elk Creek Twp., Erie Co., Pennsylvania
1870-1880 censuses: Paw Paw Twp., Van Buren Co., Michigan
Death: 2/17/1884 Paw Paw Twp., Van Buren Co., Michigan
Burial: Cuddeback/Three Mile Cemetery, Paw Paw Twp., Van Buren Co., Michigan

No death certificate has been found.

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:)
