Lillian Cole Genealogy

The Kool family came to New Netherlands in 16??. At the time the Dutch had trading posts and settlements along the Hudson River. Our ancestors settled in the Kingston area and made their way south along the Neversink River to Port Jervis on the Delaware and into the Montague area.

The were part of the Dutch Reformed Church which established itself in the same area as their people spread out. This church is known for the excellent records they kept, a big help to genealogists.
