  • Note:
    A biographical sketch of Mrs. Ruhama W. Pulver Bird (L60122) in the "Commemorative Biographical Record of Dutchess County, NY" (ref 661) reads in part as follows: "Henry Pulver ... passed his life at Pulver's Corners, where he attended district schools, and later pursued more advanced studies under tutors at home. He was married June 7, 1829, to Jane Eliza Cook, a descendant of one of the old families of Amenia... granddaughter of Col. Cook, who once kept the 'Pratt House' at that place. ... Soon after his marriage Mr Pulver settled upon a farm at Livingston Manor, Columbia County, where he remained until 1839, when he came back to his native county and located permanently upon the [[County Rte 65, nr Carpenter Rd.]] homestead now occupied [1897] by Mrs. Bird [his daughter, Ruhama, who married Virgil Bird], her present beautiful residence being erected by him. He was prominent in local affairs, and, although never an office-seeker, he took great interest in political questions, first as a Whig and then as a Republican, and he was a member of the M.E. Church at Bangall, the family, of the Presbyterian Church at Smithfield." [[sic]]
