Edward Cole of Biddeford, ME/Newburyport, MA (m. Philadelphia Stackpole 1984)

Edward Cole of Biddeford, ME/Newburyport, MA (m. Philadelphia Stackpole 1984)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cole, Stackpole
Hello, my great-grandmother (Bertha Cole) is one of Edward Cole's children, and I'm looking for any information anyone might have on Edward Cole's lineage, as well as his other children. Information I do have on Edward:

He was a lobster fisherman who joined the Coast Guard.
Married Phila(delphia) Stackpole in Biddeford, ME (Feb 7, 1894).
Moved to Newburyport, MA between 1930 and 1940.

Children:

Virginia
Cora
Edna M. (b. 1902?)
J. Lester (b. ~1910)
Mary E. (b. ~1912)
Bertha E. (b. 8/1919)

My family is particularly interested in any information about Mary (our family lost track of her after Phila and Edward died- she may have ended up in a state institution but we are not sure), but we would also like to know more about Edward's family.

Thank you in advance!

It looks like they had some other children besides the ones mentioned. In 1900 Biddeford Edward & Phila are living with his widowed mother - note he has a sister Bertha, perhaps your Bertha is named for her ?

There are too many Williams to figure out who his parents might be. A tree at Ancestry says he died in Biddesford Oct 1898 and that he married Helen Hall Hussey b 31 Jul 1855 Biddeford d 09 Sep 1911 Biddeford, daughter of William Hussey b 1822 ME & Mar unknown b 1824 ME

Please use caution & remember that info from these trees is NOT sourced - should be used as a guide rather - I've tried to put some sources in here tho

Vicky, thank you so, so much, my mother will be so excited to read some of this! And we were having quite a bit of controversy about Edna's birth date, so hopefully we can put that discussion to rest! :)
