I am a direct decendant of Zachariah Cole through George. I can tell you quite a bit about George's family. Here is what I know about Zachariah Cole and Sarah Ann (Coulter) of Dorset, Ontario Canada.
Zach Cole: Born about 1835 in Ontario
Died Dec 27 1885 in Ridout, Ontario (Source Ontairo death certificate)
Zach help survey the roads in and around Dorset. He essestially founded that town. He want to call it Colebridge but that fell throught for some reason. He operated a little inn for a while. Later in his life he farmed until his death. You can read about him in the book "In Quest of Yesterday" by Nila Reynolds.
