Isaiah Cole/Mary Lufkin Civil War Pension File (Massachusetts)

Posted: 11 May 2006 10:02AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Cole, Henderson, Dodge, Lufkin, Porter
I just ordered a Civil War pension file and found out it was for the wrong person. Mary Lufkin (widow of Isaiah Cole who later married Zeno Lufkin) was listed in the index as Mary Dufkin and I was looking for the Dufkin surname.

If there is anyone who is related to these folks and would like these papers, I would be happy to send them to you. Here are some of the particulars:

Isaiah S. Cole, 1st marriage to Lydia Henderson, 2nd to Mary Porter Dodge
Mary Porter, 1st marriage to Joshua Dodge, 2nd to Isaiah Cole, 3rd to Zeno Pulsifer Lufkin.
Zeno P. Lufkin was the son of Wm. and Nancy Burnham Lufkin, and his marriage to Mary was his second marriage (no info on 1st marriage)

Isaiah Cole served in the 4th Heavy Artillery Regiment (Massachusetts). He was born in Orleans, Mass., and died in Beverly, Mass., on 15 Oct. 1876. He had a son named George E. Cole, who was age 50 in 1917.

Just reply to this message if you are interested. There are several records of marriages, deaths, affidavits from others who knew the soldier, etc. It is a large file.
