Sarah Oliphant Cole Woolsey 1751-? Greene Co. TN
After years of searching for the parents of my Philip K. Cole [ca. 1770-1850] of Greene and Monroe Counties, TN I think that I may have found the clue I have been looking for.I believe that Philip K. Cole was the son of Sarah Oliphant [1751-?] and [possibly]Philip Cole, son of Israel Cole III and Remember Burgess of Ulster Co. NY [New Paltz] and Washington Co. VA.Philip Cole, the elder, probably died in Ulster Co. NY ca. 1772 and Sarah then married John Woolsey III in 1773 and moved to TN.
On earlier posts to genforum I discovered,Wilford W. Whitaker found some interesting record notations concerning John Whoolsey and Sarah Cole, widow.......
