Thank you so much for the information. I had no idea that Halifax was similar to our Ellis Island. And to think that our Cole's might be from Ireland! There are so many from England I have been assuming that train of thought. Not any more! As I have searched for records on my Jacob, I have found many other Coles in that area! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to connect any of them with mine.
Your information helps tremendously, and I appreciate your willingness to share with me. Again, many thanks.
Your possible cousin,
