Third Generation

10. Jeremiah Gard (Moses2, Jeremiah1), 1377, M. Born in ~1774 in Morris Co., NJ. Jeremiah died in Butler Co., OH, bef 1820; he was 46.

 

1.  Info from Margie Gard Gray, P.O. Box 336, Malo, WA  99150

 

Jeremiah married Mercy Massy, 1376, F. Born in ~1782.

 

1.  Margie Gard Gray, Malo, WA  99150

This woman was called Massy in the 1820 census but if you look at the land deals between this Jeremiah's wife and Huston  she was signed as Mercy and then in another instance she is called Mary.

 

1780-90 tax records for Fayette Co. Pa and there were families there

named Massy/Massey, so I rather think your Jeremiah married in Fayette Co.

Pa.

 

They had the following children:

        20            i.          Moses, 1378, M (1801-)

 SANFORD L. COLE.

        

Henry County can boast of few more progressive or enterprising farmers than the well-known gentleman whose name forms the caption to this review. He is considered one of theleading agriculturists of Dudley township and as a citizen is intelligent and enterprising, combining within himself those sterling qualities of manhood that make not only a useful member of society, but a leader in whatever he undertakes. Sanford L. Cole was born in Fayette County, Indiana, on the 10th ofJuly. 1846, and is the son of A. M. B. and Mahala (Gard) Cole. The Cole family were originally from Virginia and were of German descent. When A. M. B. Cole was a lad of four years his father crossed the mountains from his native state into Montgomery County,

Ohio, where he followed the occupation of a wagon maker and carpenter. About 1823 he removed to Fayette County, Indiana, and there entered forty acres of land. It was in the midst of a dense woods and in true pioneer style he at once erected a cabin and started in to create for himself and family a home. He lived there for some years, and when he disposed of the

place A. M. B. Cole, the father of the subject, bought a farm near by and entered upon its improvement. He married Mahala Gard whose parents had come from Ohio and had also settled in that locality as pioneers. They later sold their first entry and bought one hundred and one acres of timberland, on which they made their home until the death of the father. He had added to his first purchase until he owned at the time of his death one hundred and ninety-six

acres. He was well known in Fayette County, was a public-spirited citizen and in politics was a Republican. He was a member ofthe Christian church throughout his life and died in that faith. To A. M. B.Cole and his wife there were born the following children: Perry P., Phillip,Alvin, Catherine, Elizabeth, Jerry, Sarah J, Sanford R, Benjamin F, andMorrison B.  The subject

of this sketch was reared upon his father's farm and was early initiated into the mysteries of husbandry. He attended the common schools of his neighborhood, was proficient in his studies and taught one term of school in Henry County.  He remained at home until he had attained his majority and upon his marriage entered at once upon the farm, which he now occupies.He at once erected the present farm buildings and proceeded to the cultivation of the farm, which he has continued uninterruptedly to the present time. He owns seventy acres of land and has brought the place up to a high standard of excellence.  On the 2nd of October 1872, Mr. Cole was united in marriage with Miss Missouri Wooters. She was born September 8, 1853, and in her youth was given the benefit of a good common school education. Her parents were of

German extraction and were natives o Union County, this state. Until 1872 Mr. Cole was a Republican in politics, but since that time has cast his ballot and influence in favor of the Prohibition Party.  At one time he served as deputy assessor of his Township. He was also a

member of the Grange at one time. He and his wife are members of the Christian church and are active in all good works, being especially so in the Sunday school, of which he has served as superintendent. He is a wide reader of the best literature and has a well-stocked and well-selected library of books. He retains a deep interest in the progress and well being of his township and freely contributes of his means to all worthy objects. He is highly respected by his neighbors, and is regarded all over the township as one of its best and most prominent citizens.
