There are many Washington Coles, this I also found out for myself. The Washington Cole that I am related to is married to Amelia Smith. This Washington Cole would be my 2nd Great Grandfather. My GG Grandfather was born Oct.27,1835/Married in 1867/and he died Aug. 19,1918. I almost forgot to mention that he was born in Buffalo, New York. If any of this sounds familiar to you just give me a shout ok?
