Surnames: Cole, Pearson
This message is sent on behalf of those who are running into a brick wall searching the Cole surname and are open to the idea that the surname they should be searching is actually Coles with an "s." It appears that a few descendants I have been suspecting dropped the "s," and another common error is with the recordtaker dropping the "s" on census records and all sorts of official records.

I would like to let others know about the Coles History Website.

This site is devoted to studying the descendants of Daniel Coles who married Dinah Boone, first cousin of Daniel "Frontiersman" Boone. This site mainly concentrates on descendants of Solomon Coles Jr., and his wife Elizabeth of Belmont/Guernsey Co. Ohio 1805 and their descendants. We have traced over 1000 descendants of this couple and the list is growing. We are also tracing the Pearson ancestors of Solomon Coles, who's parents were Solomon Coles and Esther Pearson, daughter of Thomas Pearson and Elizabeth Morris, a descendant of Edward Peeresone.

On the site, we currently have 70 viewers so far and about 40 active members. We currently have 22 pages of photographs, mostly from before 1930, and many from the 1800s on the various family lines.

Migration from Chester Co. and Berks Co. Pennsylvania, to Catawissa, Northumberland Co. Pennsylvania, to Belmont/Guersey Co. Ohio (Quaker City) then onto various counties in Ohio, including Jackson Co., Noble Co., etc. Warren Co., Iowa, Bartholomew Co., Indiana, and various counties in Missouri, Iowa; Nebraska, Kansas, Illinois, Oklahoma; and finally to all the western states and Florida as far as we know.

Descendant lines of Solomon and Elizabeth Coles include, but are not limited to: Galloway (descendants of Enoch Galloway and Ester Coles); Hayes; Lowe; Anderson; Dixon; Weber; Doherty; Rogers; Nyswonger; Matson; Love; Guffey; Bishop; Stultz; Snyder; Hall; Garbison; Vertsteeg; Dunn; Brebner; Biles; Gillis; Roberts; Crabtree; Marler; Huff; Byman; Wolverton; Smith; Bless; Guthrie, Steinbarger; Adams; Gruber; Knapp; Harter; Boston; Malson; Carpenter; Simington; Thurston; Atwood; Horr; Freel; Roe; Whitley; Curnes; Neer; Gillett; Beach; Hastie; Herron; Jackson; Overton; Ganoe; Weddle; Barker; Holmes; Michalak; and Sills. Please send me an inquiry to see if an ancestor by the above last name is listed.

Once we suspect a connection, I can send you an invitation to the Coles History website.

I don't have a William that fits this description. If I did have, it would be with an "s" at the end of the name. Do you know what states William's parents were born, such as on the 1900 census or did he disappear before that?

Hi Wanda, the Coles History Website deals with the Coles name with an "s" at the end. Do you know where your James Cole who married Millie Lunsford was born?

Why don't you post the website so people can look at the Coles website? I'm a descendant of a Cole. All I know about the Cole that is in my family is she's my great grandmother. This is all the info I have on her right now.

Lillian Roberta Cole, b. 5/4/1904 in TX; d. 7/21/1978 in Ft. Worth, Tarrant Co, TX; m. William Henry Garrison Sr on 7/3/1934 in Vernon, TX (divorced by 1949); later married a Scott

I don't know anything else about her other than her SS#.

Just checking to see if any of your Cole or Coles came from the New England area. I am at a dead end with Edson L. Cole and Lorenzo D. Cole. They would be from the early to mid 1800's.

Thanks for writing. No, I have no Coles to my knowledge that were in New England as far as I know unless it was way earlier in the colonial period. I also do not have those names.

I am researching Madsen(Matson)-Cole(Coles) history. Harald (Harry) Madsen (Matson) family. I have scetchy information on this brother of Anton Madsen from Denmark to Indianapolis, IN area in 1902. Margaret or Doris Cole Coles had some relationship to McIntosh. The McIntosh from Maine was an artist. One of my deceased aunts talked to her at a showing in MN. Harry lived in Indianna, his family possibly ended up in Maine.
