Jennifer, I am helping a descendent in putting her papers togehter for the NSDAR. Our only missing piece is we have no proof that William Janell Caple is the son of Samuel. I read somewhere that after Samuel & Mary Cole were married in 1793 Samuel filed court records declaring the first 3 sons born before their marriage were his sons. Have you ever heard of this or do you have knowledge of any documents which would prove the father/son relationship. Any help you can provide will be very much appreciated.
