“The first American ancestor of the Rhode Island branch of the Cole family was James Cole, whose wife was named Mary. His children were: James, born in England about 1626; Hugh, born in England about 1627; John and Mary. James Cole is mentioned in Plymouth, Massachusetts, as early as 1633, when he became a freeman there. Cole’s Hill, where “Plymouth Rock” stands, is said to have taken the name from him. He is supposed to have kept an inn there from 1638 to 1660 and was the first innkeeper in New England. In 1635 Samuel Cole opened the first house of entertainment in Boston. The

keeping of inns seems to have been a favorite occupation in the family, the old stage coach hostelry in Warren, Rhode Island, known as “Cole’s Hotel,” built in 1760, and destroyed by fire in 1894, being one of the oldest and best known hotels in Rhode Island.”

2. i. HUGH2 COLE, b. Bef. 1627; d. January 22, 1698/99.

Generation No. 2

2. HUGH2 COLE (JAMES1) was born Bef. 1627, and died January 22, 1698/99. He married (1) MARY FOXWELL. He married (2) ELIZABETH LETTICE, daughter of THOMAS LETTICE and ANNE. He married (3) ABIGAIL DAVENPORT. She was born Abt. 1638. He married (4) MARY TILSON.

Notes for HUGH COLE:
“Hugh Cole married (first) Mary Fox- well, daughter of Richard Foxwell, of Barn- stable, Massachusetts, who was a tailor by trade. Mr. Cole’s second wife was Elizabeth (Lettice) Cooke, who first married William Shurtliffe, the ancestor of the Rev. Flavel Shurtliffe, who was at one time a minister of Warren, Rhode Island. He was killed by lightning, and she subsequently married Jacob Cooke, and later Hugh Cole. For his third wife Mr. Cole married Mrs. Mary Morton, who was a widow Harlow when she married Mr. Morton; and Mary Harlow was an ancestor of Anna Cole (the mother of Abby A. and Asenath W. Cole), through James Wilbur, who was a son of Daniel Wilbur and Mary Barnaby, she a daughter of Ambrose Barnaby, who was a son of James and Joanna (Harlow) Barnaby. By his first marriage Hugh Cole had children as follows: James, born November 8, 1655; Hugh, March 15, 1658; John, May 15, 1660; Martha, April 16, 1662; Anna, October 14, 1664; Ruth, April 17, 1666; Joseph, May 15, 1668; Mary, in 1676; Eben- ezer, in 1677; and Benjamin, in 1678. This family lived in Swansea, on the banks of Cole’s river, at the site of the railroad station for many years known as Cole’s Station, and now as Touisset, Massachusetts. Hugh Cole was a very intimate friend of King Philip, and on the eve of the breaking out of his war King Philip sent him word by. an Indian scout, telling him of his danger, and that it would be^impossible to protect him after the Indian warriors were on the warpath. He left there, taking a boat with his household goods, and went down the river. He had not gone far before he looked back and saw his house burning. He seems to have left this farm to his sons Hugh and James, and he later settled on the Kickemuit river. Hugh Cole was deputy from Swansea to the General Court at Plymouth Colony in 16/3-74-75 and 1680 and 1683-84-85-86-87.”

WALTER MELLISH.

1st Lt. Walter Eaton Mellish, 3rd NH Vol.

Mellish enlisted like other soldiers, and was made part and parcel of
Co. I, Capt. Carlton. His rank at muster-in of the company was Private.
From this grade he was promoted thus: to Corporal in July, 180;] (on Folly
Island) ; to Sergeant 20 Aug. 18(U. As a corporal he re-enlisted, and had
the regulation furlough.

When the regiment went to Fort Fisher in January 1865, Mellish was
left in Virginia. “He received 2d Lieutenant’s commission about 25 Jan.
He rejoined with the others (from Virginia) 17 Feb., near Fort Fisher, and
went with regiment through to Wilmington. He was mustered as 2d Lieu-
tenant, 25 April, as of 1 March, 1865″), cice J. Ackerman, promoted, the com-
mission being dated 25 Jan. It is quite apparent, as Ackeruian was mustered
into his new grade 24 Feb. that the interval of two months was an injustice
to Mellish; but historians have no power to right this class of wrongs. He
was assigned to Co. F, and the muster was for the unexpired term of the
regiment. Very soon again he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant, cice John S.
James, promoted, being mustered 19 May, as of 26 April, and for the unex-
pired term of the regiment. The commission bore date 6 April. He was
assigned to Co. H and so continued to the end. Mellish, on receiving his
2d Lieutenant’s commission (in Virginia), was presented by his comrades
there with a sword and straps. He was at Bluffton, Daufuskie, Pocotaligo,
Jehossee, Edisto, James Island (but not in the fight of I6 June, being sick
in camp). Went to Florida with the lumber expedition, in January. 1863.
Was never wounded. Was for some time one of the color-guard.

He was born in Boston,Mass., 16 June 1841. His address, in 1890,
was Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass.

Eldredge, Daniel. “The Third New Hampshire and All About It”. E.B. Stilling and Co. (1893) pg. 551

Notes for ELIZABETH “LIZZIE” ELLA BALL:
Mechanicsville was a village in the town of Mt. Holly, Rutland, VT in 1870.
It is now called Belmont. “. Once known as Mechanicsville for the large
number of mills and manufacturing concerns there, the most central village
is now known as Belmont. “

Note Henry W. Ball of Mechanicsville

One of the early business industries of this place was the tannery which was
started by Deacon Dan PECK, more than sixty years ago, on the site now
occupied by Dr. T. A. COOTEY’s house. Daniel TUBBS, of Clarendon,
subsequently carried it on for some time and was succeeded by STONE & DERBY,
who ran it for a long time. Leander DERBY, in company with Alanson WHITE and
later with Henry W. BALL, operated it until it was abandoned some years
since.”

In the 1900 and 1910 Censuses, Elizabeth is clearly listed as being born in
VT, not New Hampshire. She is living with her parents in 1860 in
Londonderry, Windham, VT and the family has moved to Mechanicsville by 1870.

    You have a lot of good information here, good job, just wanted to point out that your photos of “Cole’s Hill” are incorrect. Cole’s Hill does not have any headstones on it, only a sarcophagus and a statue of Massasoit. It was the burying ground for the pilgrims who died that first winter…they did not use markers for their graves, they were too expensive and would have to be sent over from England and besides they had more important things to do, like live !! Your photos showing the church in the background is “Old Burial Hill” slightly NW, by a few blocks, of Cole’s Hill, two distinct and different places. Burial Hill’s oldest stone is 1681…there are 13 Cole’s in this cemetery and 4 Gray’s, and hundreds of others…Mary… (descendant of Elizabeth Lettice Shurtleff, and many others of early Plymouth)

      • Eaton Family Tree Says:

        I do not believe that there were any Eatons on the Mayflower (I could be wrong) there are lists of the passengers on the web. Having said that, I am descended from John Howland (Mayflower), through William Eaton’s marriage to Hannah Pope (an a lot of other marriages. The Eatons (that I am from ) originally settled in Conn. The Coles settled in Plymouth (after the Mayflower) and married people who came on the Mayflower. I recommend that you search for info on google books. In the 19th century a lot of people search and published their genealogies. Henry Pope wrote about several old families. Minister, Stephan Batchelder was an old man when he came to the colonies, he founded Hampton, NH. But he was a nut and was driven out of several settlements and finally ended up in Kittery Me, with a woman half his age. He was forced to marry her, but then left for Eng soon after. She got married pregnant by someone else and had to wear a letter A on her cloths (sound familiar?). I am descended from an earlier marriage. Hawthorne had property near the woman, Mary Beadle. That might be where he go the idea. Barchelder had children that stayed here. Good Luck.

    The wife of James COLE b 1600 is not Mary LOBEL; researchers today generally agree that his wife was Mary TIBBES (1598-1660). She was b 15 Jun 1598 in Barnstaple, Devon, England, d 7 Mar 1660 in Plymouth, British American Colony at Plymouth.

    I am researching William Cole who was born circa June 1745 in Morristown Middlesex, New Jersey. He married Nellie Freeman dau. of Daniel Freeman and Sarah Tappan before 1774 in Frederick County VA. William Cole fought in the Revolutionary War he served under Capt Alexander in 1776. Under Long & Slaughter 11th VA regiment and Capts Long & Brady in 1777. He served under John Cropper & Col. Daniel Morgan. He also served in the Winchester Light Dragoon in 1780 and in the Navy under James Barron.
    William and Nellie had 3 children: Matthew Cole b. 1778 in Maryland, Elizabeth born 25 Feb 1774 & married William Marshall Sr and a son William A Cole b. 1777 in Maryland.
    If anyone could provide any information regarding this Cole line I would be extremely grateful

      In this time period I have Henry FREEMAN Jr. (1717-1784), son of Henry FREEMAN (1672-1763)+Elizabeth BOWNE/BOWEN (1673-1760) in Woodbridge NJ. I do not have a Daniel. My COLE family are from MA & RI, dating back to James COLE who once owned Plymouth Rock, but I do not have your line in my tree. Sorry! Date: Mon, 7 Oct 2013 07:32:43 +0000 To: bbyboom@hotmail.com

        Thank you for your timely response. I guess I’ll have to keep digging to uncover the ancestor of my William Cole.

        Hello Nancy Moore:  Perhaps you have information on John Cole born about 1775 in Massachusetts Bay, possibly Shelburn or Shelburn Falls?  He married a Lidia (LNU) and the family moved to New York (Litchfield, Herkimer County) in about 1798.  They are buried there on the farm property that they owned.  My decendant is their son Erastus who moved to Illinois.

    Please note that it has been proven that James Cole (Coale) (born 1600 at Highgate, London, England), who lived on the property now known as Cole’s Hill in Plymouth Massachusetts, was NOT married to the Lobel woman you show in this blog. James Cole was married to a Mary Tibbes (daughter of John Tibbes and Margaret Harris). The baptism records in England for the children of James Coale, who were born prior to arrival in the colony, indicate the true mother of his children.

      I have found a lot of problems with the Cole line. I have not updated the blog though. There was a published genealogy that seems to be the source of the problems. Then the corrections get very confusing, so I am pretty frustrated with this line.
