The Descendants of Anton Baumgartner

The material and pictures in this summary was organized and contributed by the Reverend James J. Ruddick, SJ, who was retired from the faculty at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. Father Ruddick was related to the Litzelman, Sick, Sweeney and Kelly families of Sullivan County tradition. He died on March 18, 2007. The Sullivan County Settlers Web Page is grateful to Father Ruddick for the contribution of this historical information.The reader may find it interesting to compare what Father Ruddick discovered with the information in Settlers Page XIX on this page. The Baumgartner Emigration overlaps the story told here, and tells in more detail about many of the Baumgartner families in Sullivan and Lycoming Counties, and in Iowa where several emigrated after the Civil War. Father Ruddick's story also helps clarify some of the ambiguity surrounding the two "Cook" families of Sullivan County. Those Cooks who married with the Baumgardners now appear to have born the surname "Koch" in Germany, whereas the other Cook family, descended via Henry Cook, was of Irish origin.
