Polly's father and mother are both still alive and living together (in Baltimore, Windsor Co., VT), so it seems probable that the older woman living with them is Oliver's mother and that the teenagers are Oliver's siblings (except note that Oliver's father is supposedly still living, so where is he?).

7.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image#46 of 64):  Springfield, Windsor Co., VT, Roll M432_931, p. 471B, 390/397, enumerated 4 Aug 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Oliver Cook 67 M   Farmer 3000 R.I.
Charlotte " 60 F       Vt
Mary A    " 37 F       "
Roswell D Ellison 44 M       "
Charlotte COOK is Oliver's unmarried sister.  Susan (COOK) WINCHESTER (æ 24, b. VT) is living in Gilsum, Cheshire Co., NH (p. 366A) with her husband, Salmon WINCHESTER (æ 28, b. NH).  Sylvia A. COOK (æ 8, b. VT) and Agnes COOK (æ 4, b. VT) are living in Springfield, Windsor Co., VT (p. 450A), with their parents, Seymour COOK (æ 39, b. VT) and Abiah D. (æ 37, b. VT).
