My husband's gg grandfather was named Daniel Cole. He was born 1830 in Missouri. He only appears on one census (1860)in Bollinger County MO, married to my husband's gg grandmother, Delphinia Smith Cole with 7 children. He does not appear on any other Bollinger County census. Although Delphinia and the children are still in Bollinger County. Delphinia is on the next census with all the other children and a five month old son, Daniel is not listed with them.
I have not found anything about where Daniel was born, other than Missouri, I have not found a record of his death, although his wife and most of his children died in Bollinger County MO. I have found no record of Daniel's parents.
There is a family legend that he was a cousin of Jesse James and rode with his gang for a time.
Anyone knowing of ANY Daniel Cole born in 1830 in Missouri, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
