This family line does not appear in The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth after the 5th generation, Joseph and Freelove Cole. E.B. Cole lost them when they moved to NY from RI. A descendant, Redmond Selecman Cole of OK traced Joseph and another unrelated Cole, Israel, to Washington Co., VA.
Zacheus Cole (Joseph5, Hugh4, Hugh3, Hugh2, James1) m. (1) _____ Cole, a daughter of Israel Cole. She probably d. about 1779, based on the birthdates of the children of Zacheus. Zacheus, called Zachariah Cole in some records, m. (2) Mary _____ . Julie Fewsmith suspects that the maiden name of Mary might be Alexander because when she and Zacheus moved to Warren County, KY, she was among kin. They lived next to the Andrew Alexander family who came from Mecklenburg Co., NC, and there was much intermarriage with the Alexander families. Julie, by the way, is descended from Phoebe Cole, not her brother as Istated yesterday. Phoebe was one of 11 children of the second wife--the first wife had only 2 known children, Mary and Ebenezer.
