Excerpt from Isaac Kool (Cool or Cole) And Catherine Severn, Married Oct; 15, 1764, at Tappan, Rockland (Then Part of Orange) Co;, N. Y: Their Descendants Complete to May 1, 1876; Also Their American Ancestors From the Settlement of New York City I hoped to find for this work a portrait of each of the fifteen children of Mr. And Mrs. Cole, and of each of the husbands and wives brought into the family by marriage with these children. Unfortunately, however, seven of the children, like the parents, had passed away without leaving these precious memorials. Yet eight portraits of the children have been found, viz., those of Bridget, Anna, David, Isaac, Margaret, Philip, Catharine, and Sarah, and four of the husbands, viz., those of Daniel H. Blauvelt, Jonathan Palmer, Benjamin Wood, and Henry G. Bogert. These have been cheerfully contri buted for the work, and they serve greatly to enrich it. To them have also been added, at my solicitation, several portraits of the living, from various branches of the family. I had hoped to increase the number of these, but have not been able to do so, owing in part to the cost of the portraits, and in part to the reluctance which some manifest to personal appearance in the book. I take pleasure in saying, that the portraits, after having been first brought out by the usual step Of photographing, were prepared and printed for this book by What is called the Albert-type process, invented by Joseph Albert of Munich in 1868, and introduced into this country in 1870, by Mr. Edward Bierstadt, of 58 and 60 Reade Street, New York.
