About Dorothy Cock (Harcourt)

1/9. Dorothy Harcourt. Born 1670, died between January 31/1738-9 and

 December 17/1739, the dates of her will and its probate. She married
 in 1697, as his second wife, John Cock, born at Oyster Bay November
 22/1666, died 1716, son of James and Sarah Cock. John died intestate
 and letters of administration were granted to his sons Daniel and
 James on January 10/1734. John Cock had some bacon carried off by
 Benjamin Carpenter, as John would not train with the Militia.
 2/1. John Cock, born March 25/1698, died unmarried before 1734. He
    was a cordwainer and a shoe maker.
 2/2. Daniel Cock, born October 5/1699, died 1771. He owned and
    operated a ferry between Fox Island beach and Rye, N.Y. He
    married, 1st, Levine Kissam, daughter of David and Elizabeth
    (Coombes) Kissam, and widow of John Carman, son of Joshua and
    either Grace "Rock" (Smith) or Martha (Ellison) Carman, see
    subject 536, page 4. There is something wrong about this marriage
    as the Carman Genealogy by Henry Allison Treadwell, says John
    Carman who married 1st, Levina Kissam, born 1710, daughter of
    Daniel and Elizabeth (Coombes) Kissam, did not die until January
    29/1771, and married, 2nd, on February 8/1739-40, Mary Smith.
    Levine Kissam bore John Carman two children, born 1732 and 1734.
    Perhaps John and Levine (Kissam) Carman were divorced. The Cox
    genealogy says Daniel Cock had no children by Levine Kissam.
    Daniel Cock married, 2nd, on April 27/1748, Sarah Rushmore,
    daughter of Thomas and Anneka (Hendrickson) Rushmore, see subject
    132, page 3 for their issue and further particulars. Daniel Cock
    married, 3rd, before October 29/1766, his cousin Susannah Youngs,
    daughter of Richard and Phebe (Weekes) Youngs, see subject 304,
    page 5. They had no children.
 2/3. Meribah Cock, born March 2/1701, died 1762. She married, 1st,
    Joshua Townsend, son of James and Jane (Reddough) Townsend. See
    subject 308 page 6 for issue and further particulars. She married,
    2nd, as his second wife, in December 1760, Micajah Townsend, born
    1699, died November 9/1781, son of John and Esther (Smith)
    Townsend.  See subject 616, page 3, but had no children by him.
 2/4. Hezekiah Cock, born November 28/1703, died 1769. He married
    Susanna Townsend, born March 14/1712, died about 1780, daughter of
    George and Rosanna (Coles) Townsend, see subject 154 page 1 for
    their issue and further particulars.
 2/5. James Cock, born April 27/1708, died June 12/1746, a farmer and
    a Justice of the Peace. He married Deborah Feake, who died October
    30/1794, daughter of Robert and Clemence (Ludlum) Feake.  After
    James death, Deborah married, 2nd, Thomas Doughty.
