My 5-G Grandfather, John Cole, was born around 1727 in New Castle County, DE.  His children were Peregine, b. 1766; Lambert; Peter, b. 1764; Isaac; Mary, and Archibald, b. 1773, possibly all by Sarah Hannah Marsh.  I have read that John's father was from Maryland (Ark and Dove immigrants?) and also that the family had lived in Delaware for at least a couple of generations prior to John's birth.  Peregrine's son moved to Ohio and I have many relatives there.  Another possibility for John:  Although I have been told that my brother's DNA shows that I am not decended from Mark Cole (Stephen), at least one of Mark's children also was born in New Castle, Delaware (James Armstrong Cole).  He died in North Carolina.  I have reason to believe that generations of the same Cole's moved from Chester, PA to New Castle, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Texas.  Perhaps someone else has similar information.

A quick search of Find-A-Grave turnd up 85 Coles in New Castle Co., the earliest buried was Thomas, born 1765, died 1825. The next is 1850. This isn't the anser to your question, but it could be a start. Of course, all the Coles in Delaware probably are not in Find-A-Grave.
