Solomon Cole B. 1784 in MD or DEL.
When his father died they moved to PA where he stayed until 1811 +-3 years. He migrated to Indiana, Dearborn Co. with James Cole and later William Cole arrived. They shared a quarter section in Logan TWP. Solomon married there and had 9 children.
The family then moved To Mt. Pleasant IA, in 1841 and there resided until 1915.
My Coles are of English stock and the family lore is that Solomon's father was a blacksmith living just south of Philadelphia, had a brick house, rented his farm and lost it in an economic down turn. The Father died and the court house burned down with all he records. That is when the family went to Pennylvania. The Mother was of German stock.
Does any of this make sense to you? JMC
