• In his book, Johnson County, Kentucky : a history of the county, and genealogy of its people up to the year 1927 (1928), p. 258, C. Mitchel Hall says: "Billy Cole died in the service in the Civil War."

• 1860 Census for Independence P.O., Grayson County, Virginia, taken 28 Aug 1860, shows William Cole, 31, a laborer with $100 assets, as head of household with: Elizabeth, 23; Lydia C., 4; and Sarah, 2. Elizabeth is listed as unable to read or write. All were born in Virginia.

Elizabeth (Betty) Hall and William (Billy) Cole were married.516 William (Billy) Cole516 (son of James Cole) was born about 1829 in Virginia.328

• From New River Notes' Grayson Countians in the Civil War web page ( "COLE, WILLIAM, 31, Laborer, 1860 GCC HH#856, Co. K, 51st VA, Enl. on 6/24/61 at Independence. Absent sick 11/10/62 thru last muster roll on 11/8/63. Taken POW at Winchester, VA on 9/19/64, sent to Point Lookout, MD exchanged at Aiken's Landing, VA on 3/15/65."

This record indicates that Billy Cole may have survived the Civil War. However, C. Mitchel Hall's book says that he died while in Civil War service. His children seem to have been orphans by 1870, so it's possible that he died after the exchange but from something related to his Civil War service.
