THANKS TO WINNIE FOR THIS...
Found more info for Rev. Ashel Jervis Cooley, and hope you can copy and paste into his BIO as I'm researching graves for pioneer Free Baptist ministers in the northeast and this would be helpful.
Rev. Ashel J.'s bio is in the "Free Baptist Cyclopedia, pub. 1889, by Burgess and Ward, and I think is pretty accurate...at least others I've used proved to be accurate. I've also found Rev. Ashel J. and family in the New York censuses. Maybe you can copy and paste bio: Thank you very much. winnie
