When Rev. Cozine died in 1788, Rev. Brinkerhoff succeeded him and was
the pastor until 1793. The Colony was practically broken up by that
time, some of its settlers going to Cayuga Lake, NY, and some to White
Oak Spring in Mercer Co., KY. There they founded the "Low Dutch Tract
Company". The Cozine family were among those who went to KY. Gerret
and Margaret saw their sons marry. The family bought some land. They
are on record as owning land in Mercer Co. in 1797. They and their
children were on the tax lists of 1831 and 1838, but they had moved on
by 1836 and had settled in Hendericks Co., IN. In 1845 when Gerret was
79, his 2d son John J. went to Missouri with his wife and children.
Gerret and Margaret did not move with them. His first son, Cornelius,
had died in KY (1838). His 3rd son, Peter, had stayed in Mercer Co.,
KY, and his 4th son, George, was not to stay with his parents much
longer for he and his family were headed for Carrol Co., Missouri.

He is listed in the 1800 Census in Mercer Co., KY.
