Celeste Fruge was born to Louis Fruge and Marie Louise Celeste Teal on 27 December 1825 and was baptized 2 August 1826.[1] Her gravestone indicates she was born on this date in 1820, but that is not correct.[2]

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.[3] However, that child's gravestone does give her date of birth at 1 January 1845.[4] 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.[5] Celeste's gravestone indicates she died in 1850[2], the date of the previously mentioned 1850 census is 8 December 1850.[3]
