Classification: Query
Surnames: Coles, DeWitt, Hall, Hartley, Starbuck

Eunice Coles, sister of David Coles (abt 1830-February 9, 1863) was the daughter of Isaac Coles and Mary Starbuck.

David Coles had two children, Ada Coles, b. abt 1862 in Iowa and Villettie or Vilettie or Villetie Coles ("Ettie") b. abt 1863 in Iowa. I do not know what happened to these two girls if they married or what happened. Their mother was Hannah b. abt 1835 in Ohio. Uncertain of Hannah's last name. Widow Hannah Coles then married Wesley VanFleet who became guardian to the two girls and managed their portion of the inheritance stemming from the large estate of Isaac Coles.

Back to Eunice Coles, she married Benjamin W. Hartley, son of John Hartley and Zilpah Hall.

Eunice Coles and Benjamin W. Hartley had a daughter, Tamson Louisea Hartley "Lou" who married John Lawrence DeWitt. Here is what I know of the Dewitts:

1. JOHN LAWRENCE2 DEWITT (FRANCIS BYRON1) was born Bet. 1854 - 1855 in Ohio, and died 1907 in Lima, Ohio1. He married TAMSON LOUISEA HARTLEY March 25, 1875, daughter of BENJAMIN HARTLEY and EUNICE COLES. She was born 1856 in Iowa2, and died 1926 in Oklahoma2.
