I am researching Cole families who I believe lived in the Broadalbin area between 1787 and 1819. They are sons of Joseph Cole b. 1716, Kingstown R.I.. The sons were born in either Kingstown RI or Stonington CT. I am looking for any / all marriages, childbirth records, biographies, references of any kind to help me know more about their families. I am a novice when it comes to researching off the computer so looking for suggestions of what references to use. I have a Family History Library nearby. The sons I’m interested in are: Joseph Cole b. 1754, m. Hannah Collins, Sands James Cole b. 1760 m. Esther Grant, Benjamin Cole b. 1762 m. Mary Polly Cottrell (Bovee), John Cole b. 1764 m. Sarah Wells, and Isaac Cole (wife unknown). Wife of Benjamin (Mary Polly) was 2nd wife and I know he was previously married and had children by this first wife but do not know 1st wife’s name or name of children. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
