Polly Hildreth, whose parents are unknown, was born 22 March 1790.1 She died 8 August 1811,1 and was buried at the Hayground Cemetery, Bridgehampton, Suffolk Co., New York, where her stone is inscribed:
Calm and resigned dear Polly lies,
Tho' snatched away from dearest friends,
We trust she dwells above the skies,
Where troubles cease & sorrow ends.
She left a partner long to mourn,
The loss of one so dear and kind.
Grant him O! Lord sufficient grace,
Unto thy will to be resigned.1

Polly married Sullivan Cook, son of Samuel Cook and Elizabeth Halsey.1,2


Sullivan Cook b. 8 Aug 1787, d. 28 Jul 1868
