Nathan Cole and father
The attached photo is of Nathan Cole, born 8 Sep 1794
in Hancock,MA. His
father, also named Nathan, was a soldier in the Revolutionary
first wife, Anna Margaret Goble, died in Indiana and
he married her younger
sister, Abigail Goble, who was a widow at the time.
The woman in the photo
is the second wife, Abigail. The young man in the
photo is a grandson of
Nathan and his first wife, David A. Cole, born 16 Jan
1845. I would guess
his age to be under 20 at the time the picture was taken.
The only photo I
want from Graceland is of Nathan's tombstone. He
is the only one, to my
knowledge, that is buried there. My Cobb ancestors,
John and Frances, are
buried in the Helms Cemetery but I understand most of
the stones have been
removed from the graves and stored. Thanks much
for your interest.
