Includes NotesNotes for James Cole:
James and Mary Cole came to Saco, Maine, in 1632, and the following year, 1633,locate in Plymouth, MA, where he was admitted as freeman the same year. He wasknown as a sailor. His name appears upon the tax list of Plymouth in 1634; Jan. 2, 1636, he had a grant of ten acres of land; Jan. 2, 1637, the court deeded him seven acres of land to belong to his dwelling house. Three acres of land probably included all the land on the south side of Leydon Street, from the corner of Warren Street to the westerly line of the lot opposite the Universalist Church. He was the first settler of and lived upon what is still known as "Cole'sHill," the first burial ground of the Pilgrims. Soon after his arrival at Plymouth he opened the first inn or public house of Plymouth, and one of, it not the first, public house in New England. Merchant was an occupation that might mean anything involving the buying and selling of a variety of products. An occupation of considerable importance was that of innkeeper, for the state recognizedthe need to provide comfortable lodging, food, and drink
for visitors. James Cole became Plymouth's best known innkeeper with his establishment on Cole's Hill on the north side of Leyden Street. His worth to the community was shown in 1669 when the court awarded him 10 pounds to repair his house "soe as it may bee fitted as an ordinary for the entertainment of strangers."

James Cole was born in England. He migrated to Plymouth as an adult with his wife Mary and their 4 children. James Cole first appears in the records of Plymouth Colony in the 1630s. The name of the ship on which he sailed to America is not known. Jameswas an innkeeper. Operating an inn, or "ordinary," was a public service and the Colony authorized money to keep the ordinary in good repair. James also appears in the Records of Plymouth Colony for violations of the Colony?s liquor lawson numerous occasions. James Cole?s ordinary was near but not actually on Plymouth?s "Coles Hill." Coles Hill most probably takes its name, not from James Cole, but from John Cole who bought property on the hill in 1697. The first reference to "Coles Hill" appears on 6 March 1698-9 : "The towne granted to Nathaniel Warren 50 foot frunt of land below Coles Hill soe aled by the shore side and soe to Run down from High Water Marke in to the sea to whorf out soe farr as may be
Convenient the sd Warren alwayes leaveing A sufficient way for Carts to pass along the shore between the banck & the sd land to be taken upp" (Records of the Town of Plymouth, I : 266). The date of James Cole?s death is unknown, helast appears in the records in 1673.

More About James Cole and Mary Tibbes:
Marriage: 08 May 1625, Barnstaple, England.

Children of James Cole and Mary Tibbes are:
+Hugh Cole, b. 28 Jun 1628, Barnstable, Devonshire, England, d. 22 Jan 1698, Swansea, Bristol County, MA.
James Cole, b. 1626, Barnstaple, England.
John Cole, b., Barnstaple, Devonshire, England.

James Cole, his wife and children arrived in Plymouth sometime prior to 1633, when he was listed as a freeman. He has been called a sailor, a shoemaker and an innkeeper. He also was a surveyor of highways, served on several juries and was a constable for Plymouth. He must have had some education to be considered reliable for these positions. The land that became known as Cole?s Hill, was first known as Burial Hill. This is where it is said the Pilgrims buried their dead that first winter, 1621, so the Indians would not be aware that their numbers had dropped by half. There are many entries in the records of Plymouth concerning James as an innkeeper. He had many difficulties with the laws of Plymouth. He was fined for allowing people to become drunk, for selling spirits on the Sabbath, for selling spirits to the Indians and for being drunk himself. He lost his license to operate his tavern, but he continued to run his inn regardless. He was obviously a colorful figure in Plymouth society.

In 1670 his tavern was succeeded by his son James, Jr. The business operated smoothly after that as James, Jr. stayed well within the regulations set forth by the Plymouth magistrates.

Today, Coles Hill has a roadside marker and other memorials to him and the Pilgrims. It faces Plymouth Rock and the Ocean. It was a good vantage point for seeing any approaching vessels bent on doing harm to them. One of the memorials says:
"In memory of James Cole
Born London England 1600
Died Plymouth Mass 1692
First settler of Coles Hill 1633
A soldier in Pequot Indian War 1637
This tablet erected by his descendants1917"

According to Pilgrim Hall Museum, America's Museum of Pilgrim Possession, virtually all the historic sites relating to the earliest period of the settlement at Plymouth in 1620 have lost their original character and convey little impression of the colony. One exception is Cole's Hill. The view from the hill of land and harbor and sea conveys a vivid impression of the scene that greeted the Mayflower's weary passengers.

The hill was the traditional burial place of the Plymouth colonists, Pilgrims, and others, who died during the tragic first winter of 1620-21. The dead were reportedly buried at night, and their graves disguised to prevent the Indians from learning the dangerously weakened state of the survivors. In later years, the colonists occasionally mounted cannons on the hill to ward off possible attack from the sea.

Today, Cole's Hill is maintained by the Pilgrim Society as a public park. On its top stands the memorial to the Mayflower Pilgrims. At the foot of the hill is Plymouth Rock, the legendary landing site of the Pilgrims and stepping stone to the New World. Whether or not the Pilgrims actually landed on the rock, it has deep meaning for most Americans. Cole's Hill, the nearby rock, and the curving shores of Plymouth Bay memorably evoke the time more than three centuries past when Englishmen came to the shores of New England to stay.

Cole James
20 The earliest information obtained of James Cole, whose name stands at the head of the family in America, dates from 1616, when he was living at Highgate, a suburb of London, England. He is spoken of as a great lover of flowers.

According to Robert C. Anderson: James Coles was born about 1600 based on the date of his marriage. He died after October 1678. Ship: Unknown, 1633. Nothing is known of his life in England.

James and Mary may have come to Saco, Maine, in 1632[2]. He was listed in the 1632 census, page 253, for Plymouth, MA. though 1633 is used as the year of immigration. He was admitted as freeman the same year[3]. His name appears upon the tax list of Plymouth in 1634; Jan. 2, 1636, he had a grant of ten acres of land; Jan. 2, 1637, the court deeded him seven acres of land to belong to his dwelling house. Three acres of land probably included all the land on the south side of Leyden Street, from the corner of Warren Street to the westerly line of the lot opposite the Universalist Church. His dwelling stood on the lot next below the Baptist Church. He was the first settler who lived on "Cole's Hill", as it is still known, the first burial ground of the Pilgrims. This land probably included the ground upon which rests Plymouth Rock. He had several grants of land thereafter. In September, 1641, he had a grant of fifty acres of land at Lakenham meadow. In October, 1642, he had a further grant of 1and at the same place. In 1662 a grant of land at Sacconet Neck. In 1665 he had thirty acres of land on the west side of the Namuet River. He was surveyor of highways in 1641, 42, 51, and 52; was constable in 1641 and 1644; and served on a number of juries. In 1637 his name appears upon a list of volunteers against the Pequot Indians.[4]. In 1668 he sold most of his land to his son, James. In 1689 his son, James, Jr., sold it to William Shurtliffe.

Trades and Tavern Ownership

He apparently followed several trades, being described in the court records as a sailor (1638) shoemaker (1661) and innkeeper (many references). He opened the first inn in Plymouth in house owned by Edward Winslow, formerly owned by William Brewster in the center of town. James Cole appeared many times in Plymouth records for either being drunk or allowing others to become drunk in his house. Of particular interest is James Cole's apparent lack of church membership among the scores of early prominent settlers whose places of prominence in the community were usually paralleled by leadership roles within the church. Not only did James Cole appear to avoid church, but also operated a rather rowdy tavern. A later account describes the throwing of stools and general disturbance until early morning hours.

George F. Willison in "Saints and Strangers", Phx Libr 974.4 c117mo2, on page 346, indicates: "James Cole soon opened an ordinary on Cole's Hill, just above Plymouth Rock, later removing his casks and bottles to more ample quarters in Winslow's house, formerly Brewster's, conveniently situated in the very center of town at the corner of the street and the highway."

In September, 1640, the following order was passed: "James Cole of Plymouth is prohibited to draw any wine or strong water until the next term of the General Court, and not then without special license from the court." No reason is given for the passing of this order, and the privilege of selling liquors was given to another person until 1645. Because of the inconvenience to travelers in having no liquor to be sold at the inn, the above order was rescinded. A very colorful history of his tavern operations is given at James continued to operate an inn even without his liquor license. He was apparently financially successful and acted as surety on bonds at various times and loaned money. He undoubtedly won the respect of the townspeople. James Cole also appeared numerous times in court records as either plaintiff or defendant in various actions involving business contracts and debt collections.

On October 2, 1650 he was presented by the Grand Jury for assault and battery, but he was acquitted. On June 7, 1657, the court granted to him ten pounds for the repair of his inn. "The court having given unto James Cole of Plymouth the sum of ten pounds towards repairing the house he now liveth in, so that it may be fitted for an Ordinary, for the entertainment of strangers." In 1659 the court again paid Cole 10 pounds for improvements in his "ordinary."

In 1654 his boat was pressed for an expedition against the Dutch, but the plan was abandoned.

Family and Children

James Cole married Mary Tibbes in Barnstaple, Devonshire on May 1, 1625, and had four children. She died after March 7, 1659/60. Children of James and Mary Cole:

Stoddard, Phx Libr 973.22 st63t, the James Cole who was born in 1629 was the father of Joanna Cole who married Thomas Howland, (a grandson of John Howland, passenger on the Mayflower) and their son, Consider Howland, inherited his grandfather's inn (Cole's Inn), when his father, James 1629, died in 1709.

Virkis "Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol II" Phx Libr 929.10923 v764a shows: "Cole, James, born 1600 from Eng. to Saco, Me 1632; settled at "Cole's Hill", Plymouth, Mass 1633; in Pequot war; surveyor of highways, m.

Birth: Apr. 11, 1839
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1922
Barron County
Wisconsin, USA

Seth was born April 11, 1839, in Penn., son of Sylvanus Cole and Anna Ervine, both born in Indiana. He died March 6, 1922, at Dallas, Wis., aged 82 years, 10 months and 25 days, and was buried there in the Dallas Cemetery. His military style gravestone is inscribed "Seth Cole Co. F. 149 Ill. Inf."

In later years Seth stated his mother died in 1848 and his father Sylvanus Cole in 1852. His older brother S.F. Cole was then appointed his guardian at Laporte, Indiana, who placed him with Mr. Henry Miller of that location. Seth noted in his pension file that his brother had given Mr. Miller a letter in which his birth date was given as April 11, 1837.

On June 30, 1863, during the Civil War, Seth enlisted in the U.S. Navy for one year and was assigned as a Landsman on the gunboat, Fort Hindman, of the Mississippi Squadron. He later served aboard the Clara Dolson and the Conestoga. He was discharged July 8, 1864 at Mound City, Illinois.

After his discharge he farmed in Greenlake County, Wisconsin, for a while.

On Feb. 7, 1865, Seth enlisted at Springfield, Illinois, to serve one year as a Private in Company F of the 149th Illinois Infantry under the name of Harry Irvine. Upon his discharge he went back to Indiana and engaged in farm work.

On Nov. 17, 1865, Seth married Mary Elizabeth (Allen) Morgan at Calhoun, Georgia. Mary was born Jan. 1, 1844, in Tenn., daughter of William and Mary (Lindsey) Allen, also natives of that state. She died July 13, 1922 at Dallas, Wis., and is probably buried next to her husband in the Dallas Cemetery. Their one known child was Christopher Cole, b. Jun 1876.

This was Mary's second marriage. Her first marriage was to Louis Washington Morgan, a Confederate soldier and friend of her brother, who was killed in action near Richmond, Virginia, in 1862. Her brother and father were also in the Confederate army and were also killed during the war. She brought one child into the marriage, Katharine Morgan, born June 3, 1862 at Richmond. After her husband's death, Mary made her home in Dallas, with the family of her daughter Katharine, wife of Garret Clinton Smith.

In 1875 Seth moved to Barron County and took a homestead of 80 acres in Section 10, west, Dallas Township. He cleared some of this land, erected a set of log buildings and farmed there for seventeen years. In 1892 he traded the farm for property where the Bank of Dallas now stands. He sold this property in 1899 and moved to Missouri where he bought 40 acres. Fourteen years later he came back to Barron County and located in the city of Barron, where he did truck gardening for a while, then in 1919 moved back to the village of Dallas. There he served four years as supervisor of Dallas Township and fourteen years as constable. He originally belonged to the William Pitts Post No. 144, G.A.R. of Dallas. Upon his move to Barron he joined the Martin Watson Post No. 172 of the G.A.R.

[Abstracted from Seth's pension file at the National Archives, Washington, DC and the History of Barron County, Wisconsin, published in 1922 by H.C. Cooper, Jr. & Co., Minneapolis, MN.]


Seth Cole was born in Erie County, Pennsylvania, April 13, 1839. He died March 6, 1922, at the age of 82 years, 10 months and 23 days.

At the age of two years he was taken by his parents to Indiana. When 22 years old he enlisted in the 149th Volunteers and served three years and four and a half months, and was honorably discharged. He came to Wisconsin in 1873 where he has resided since except for a few years spent in Missouri.

He united with the Baptist church sixteen years ago. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, one daughter, 9 grand children, 23 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grand child. He is also survived by two brothers and one sister who with his many friends will greatly miss the presence of the one who was willing to sacrifice his life for the liberty of the slaves.

He was laid to rest with the stars and stripes draped over his body in the Dallas cemetery. [Friday, March 17, 1922 in the Barron County Shield, Barron, Wisconsin.]

Sylvenus Cole born 1797. He was born in Massachusetts. His father was Seth Cole and his mother was Celea Sampson. I am at present trying to document Sylvenus as a War of 1812 veteran. His father was a veteran of the Revolutionary War and he lived in Dunkirk NY during the War of 1812. In fact, his mother Celea is a heroine for riding to inform the militia that the British were coming. The British were going to attack the salt ships coming in on Lake Erie and they were vital to the community to preserve foods.
If I can prove that he is a veteran of the War of 1812. I would like to see his grave marked that way.
Several of sons of Sylvenus and Anna Cole served in the Civil war with one losing his life from complications in recovery from a wound received in battle.
