I am searching for Martin V. Cole born about 1839 in NY. He married Jerusha Howell Bostwick who was a widow with four small children. Martin and Jerusha had at least two children before Martin died between 1867-1870 in MI.
In 1850 Jerusha living with first husband Francis Bostwick in Wright, Ottawa, MI. In 1860, Jerusha is married to Martin Cole Sr.and living in Wright, Ottawa, MI In 1870, still in Wright, Ottawa, MI without Martin Sr. In 1880, Jerusha is living with 3rd husband,Sardine Stone Van Orman in Ravenna, Muskegon, MI.
I do not know who the parents of Martin V. Cole are. I also do not know where in NY he was born.
I would appreciate any suggestions or information to help with this family.
