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.
