Thanks for the information on Phoebe Cole and Matthew Alexander.I think I need to find a copy of E.B.Cole's "The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth".
I find it interesting that my husband was an E.B. Cole, also.But I cannot find his great grandfather who was a Daniel T Cole.
And, also on my husband's side of the family, this Daniel T. Cole married into an Alexander family line the oldest of whom I can find came from North Carolina during the Rev. War time.
Since you were so kind as to send me this information, I wonder if you would send me a bit more information from the book on the Coles.Phoebe Cole, as far as I have been able to determine, was the daughter of a Zacheus Cole.Is that correct?If so was another Mary Cole (birth name) her mother?
There seems to be some discussion about whether Zacheus Cole married a daughter Mary Cole, dau. of Israel Cole, as his first wife.Then he married a Mary with another maiden name who bore the most of his children.In other words does E. B. Cole's book discuss Zacheus Cole as having two wives?
Thanks for your information.
I will have to look more into the Andrew Alexander line for my husband's Alexander line.
