Jacob (my gggrandfather) was born 1837-1841 in Nova Scotia, but was raised in Maine - possibly East Machias. He married Miranda Lowell Crosby and they had 6 children - Charles W., Lucy, Edward Alexander, Bertha, Laura Alice and George J. All of the children were born in Humboldt Co,. California, except their first child Charles.
I am trying to find Jacob's family, in particular who his parents might be. Any information concerning this line of Cole's would be very helpful. I can't seem to get any further along my line than Jacob!
