So sorry, Debi. Not sure how I did that. Yes, we have had some
remarkable men in my family, but they weren't that talented. I had
Mark as born either 1693 or 1697, with father Stephen. I have found
Mark's son John as being born in 1744 (better date, no?) in New Castle,
Delaware, and dying 1780. However, I have it elsewhere that while his
will was dated 1780, he actually didn't die until 1782. My question
is, is that the same John Cole who was the father of Peregrine Cole? I
think it was, but there were other John Cole's in Delaware about that
time. This John also had a Lambert, Peter, Archibald, Isaac, and Mary.
John Cole and Peregrine Cole were both married to Sarahs, I think, but
I haven't found last names for either one. Peregrine's Sarah died, and
his only child by Sarah was Solomon (b, 1795), my 3-G grandfather.
Peregrine then married Elizabeth Welden and had further issue,
including Benjamin, Sarah, John, Martha and James. Solomon, and I
think others, went from Delaware to Ohio.
Sorry but I didn't have your email address to send this to. Hope this info helps you to help me. Thanks very much.
