  • Notes 
    • Jacob Cole came from Rhode Island to New York with the Gortons and settled near Lebannon Springs, Columbia County. He joined the American Army and was with General Wolfe at the Capture of Quebec. He died at his home in Chatham, Columbia County in 1847 at the age of 110. His Children were Jacob, Joseph, Benjamin and Esther. He had a brother Peter.
      A King of Holland had two sons born to him by the Queen; they were twins; one was named Peleg and one Frederick Baron Trink. Peleg commanded a fleet and won a number of battles. Frederick commanded a land force. The King died without naming his successor. The contentious favoring Frederick, Peleg took his ships and Marines to France and rendered service to Charles Fifth. For this service the King made a grant of land in Canada to Peleg's children, and Peleg took the name Kohl. This came to be written in English Cole or Coal. Some of Peleg's descendants settled in New York City, some in Canada and others elsewhere. The eldest son was for seven successive generations named Jacob.
