In the newspaper, Farmer and Mechanic, Raleigh, NC, [exact date lost--between Oct. 10-Dec.26, 1878]is found:
A REMARKABLE MAN.--- Daniel Coble, who resides in the Eastern part of Randolph county, is 93 years old, is hale and hearty and retains in a wonderful degree the use of his mental and physical faculties. He reads English and German fluently; has an excellent memory; is a bachelor, but has adopted and raised thirteen children. His parents came to this county from Bethelem, Pa. His great-grandfather was a brother of King George the II. of England. He has lived through the administration of all the Presidents from Washington to Hayes.---Randolph Sun.
I have no interest in this family and only post this as a resource.
