Celeste Fruge was born to Louis Fruge and Marie Louise Celeste Teal on 27 December 1825 and was baptized 2 August 1826.
Her gravestone indicates she was born on this date in 1820, but that is not correct.
It's not known exactly when she wed Richard Cole, but at the time of the 1850 US Census, they were living in Calcasieu Parish and had a 7 year old child, suggesting they wed about 1842. However, that child's gravestone does give her date of birth at 1 January 1845.
Their marriage is noted in the publication "Cole Foot Prints" but no information is given on her other than she was Richard's first wife. Celeste's gravestone indicates she died in 1850, the date of the previously mentioned 1850 census is 8 December 1850.
