Charles P. Cole was born October 10, 1849 in New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana. His parents were Benjamin L. Cole, b: Aug. 20, 1800 in NJ and his wife, Elizabeth O. Parker, b: ca. 1820 in Ohio.

On Feb 3, 1873 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, Charles P. Cole married his 1st wife, Azema Gaspard, b: April 23, 1854 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, LA. They had a child:

  1. Albert Cole, b: 2 Nov. 1873 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, LA

Azema died just after little Albert Cole was born. The child also died. Charles P. Cole remarried to his 2nd wife, Azelina Fruge, b: April 4, 1860 in Ville Platte, Evangeline Parish, Louisiana, on May 14, 1874, in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, USA.

Charles and Azelina (Fruge) Cole had the following children:

  1. Sedonia Cole, b: 3 June 1875 in Breaux Bridge, St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, USA
  2. Albert Ortego Cole, b: 17 Sept. 1876 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, USA
  3. Marie Marcelina Cole, b: ca. March 1878 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, USA

On the 1880 US Census, Charles Cole is reported living as a farm laborer in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, with his wife Azelina Cole, 25 yrs., b: Louisiana; and 2 of their children: Albert Ortega Cole, age 3, and Marcelina Cole, 2 yrs. old.

Charles Cole and Azelina Fruge divorced between 1880 and 1884. On April 4, 1885, Charles remarried to his 3rd wife, Eliza Comeaux, b: ca. April 1845 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana.

In 1900, Charles Cole, 50 years old, was still living on a rented farm in St. Landry Parish, this time with a 4th wife "Henrietta" Cole, who was said to be 51 years old, and married less than a year. The couple had no children. [1]

Charles P. Cole does not appear on the 1910 or 1920 US Census reports, either in Louisiana or neighboring states. It's assumed that he passed away around 1910.
