Re: Mary Franklin Look - Columbia Co., NY

In Reply to: Mary Franklin Look - Columbia Co., NY by Mark Hoppe of 188

My research includes a THOMAS LOOK who was in Stillwater, NY in 1788 when his son, Benjamin Franklin Look was born. My Thomas is possibly the one who was christened 27 June 1765, Dighton, Bristol Co., MA; the son of Benjamin Look. (church record)

This THOMAS LOOK married Elsie Franklin about 1782 and produced at least 8 children; one of which could have been your MARY FRANKLIN LOOK. Other known children were Betsy Look, married Christopher Columbus Rowe; Enos Look and Dr. Sylvester Look who married Mary Sprague Bidwell. Benjamin Franklin Look was my Gr Gr Grandfather, his wife was Rachael Dopp.

Thomas and Elsie Franklin Look both died in the 1850s in Steuben Co., NY. It is said they owned and operated a stage coach stop.

Would be happy to share other information.
