After responding to your request about the Sargents in BF/Walpole, I check
out my book on Milford NY - sounds like your info is correct but it's short
so I'll sent you what's listed
Early History of Milford & Other Parts of Otsego County by Ezra Stevens

LEMUEL SERGENT FAMILY

Major Lemuel Sargent, a Soldier of the Revolution, came with his family from
Tolland, Conn. Before 1795 & purchased a farm about one-half south of Edson
Corners, now owned by Elbridge Hardy.

Lemuel Sergaent Sen wa Drum Major in the war & always retained his patriotic
principles. His oldest son Lemuel married a daughter of Barnabas Bates. He
purchased a farm contigious to his father's & was a celebrated "Corn
Raiser", was styled "Corn King". It was said that he was the only man that
raised corn that was for seed in 1816, the cold season. He planted a piece
on a high hill that had been burned off, but not logged & and that ripened &
was good for seed. He sold his seel for $1.25 a peck.

Lemuel Sargent, Jr. had 3 sons and 3 daughters.

Jospeh, the oldest, married Minerva Scott.
Job, the second son, married Tina Van Buren, who was accidentally killed by
his team being frightened by a dog. One of the horses became detached from
the wagon, the tongue dropped and ran into the ground. It threw the lady
out; she struck her head & broke her neck. She sprang to her feet, brushed
down her clothes & dropped to the ground dead. It happened a little north
of Leonard Baker's dwelling, March 5, 1829. For his second wife he amrried
Maria Moore.
The third son Hiram married Sally Lyon.
The eldest daughter Azuba, married Barnes Lee.
The second daughter Hannah, married Abram Van Buren
The third daughter Sally married Jacob Moore.

Hope it helps

I'd be interested in your Mack lineage - I have McNamara's & Mack in my
early BF lineage
