Vol. 42: ORIGIN OF THREE EARLY PLYMOUTH
FAMILIES: COLE, COLLIER , AND CLARKE " . . . proved by the will of
Zaccheus Cole of St. Olave, Southwark (Surrey England), citizen and
grocer of London, dated 16 Nov 1630 . . . In this will the testator
named his mother, FRANCES, his brothers Nathaniel, John, and DANIEL
COLE, and appointed his brother, Job Cole, executor. In New
England the will of John Cole, dated about 1637, refers to his brothers
Job Cole and Daniel Cole; to sister Rebecca and to Eliza Collyer and
left legacies to each of Master Collier's men." This is the
evidence that the mother of Daniel Cole is Frances (unknown) and that

The death of an old settler and neighbor on Gospel Ridge, Mr.
L. B. Chase of Weldon was received here on Saturday. Mr. Chase
was born in l811 and has a brother living who was born in l807. He and
the good wife were married in l833. The merry holiday time is here but
every one will remember those whose homes are shrouded in darkness. "To
them it seems that joy can never again cross their thresholds".
Our friends languish on beds of pain but when their lives are full of
years and homes we calmly submit to One who knows best.

OBITUARY: From Putnam County Courier 11 August 1899
In the death of Milan Cole, early on Thursday morning
last, the village of Carmel loses one of its oldest and most respected
residents, one who has honorably been identified with its business,
social and political life for three score years. Mr. Cole was born in
the town of Kent on December 16, 1819. His father was Ashel Cole, of
Carmel, and his mother, Betty Wood, of the town of Southeast. He had
one brother, Alonzo W., and one sister, Hannah C.; both are dead. He
received his early education in the school district at this village and
later went to Brown's academy, which occupied the building now owned by
William Weir, adjoining the M. E. church on the south. At the age of
nineteen, he commenced teaching. When teaching at Drewville, he was
examined by ex-Judge Foster, Albert E. Ellis and Gilbert Davis, all of
Southeast, and again when teaching at Red Mills, now Mahopac Falls, he
was examined by Peter E. Anderson, George L. Dean and Alva Colwell,
inspectors of schools. After three years of teaching, he formed a
partnership with the late Augustus Hazen and under the firm name of
Hazen & Cole bought out Alonzo W. Tayloy, who kept a store where
the Smalley House is now situated. After running the store thus for
three years, he purchased Mr. Hazen's interest and continued the store
for about fifteen years, during which time he was one of the first
shippers on the Harlem road. He then sold out and engaged in other
occupations and dealing in fine horses and stock. At one time he sold
six horses for $6300, selling one pair to James Gordon Bennett, Sr.,
for $2600, big prices in those days. He secured horses from Canada and
other parts of the country and mated them for the New York trade.
During Dr. Gregory's ownership of the ill-fated Gregory House at Lake
Mahopac, he was chief clerk there. About thirty-five years ago, he went
into the wholesale flour, feed and butter business and continued it
alone until his last sickness, heart disease, in 1897, which resulted
in his death on Thursday. He became so much attached to the trade that
it seemed to become a second nature to him.
In politics he was a whig until the establishment of the
republican party in the early history of which none worked harder for
its success than he. His church connections were with the Baptists of
Carmel. On November 15, 1870, he was married to Susan B. Hazen, nee
Kelley, a sister of Thomas e. Kelley. She survives him with her son,
Calvert J. Hazen, teller in the Putnam County National Bank. Mrs. Cole
has been confined to her bed since May, of a broken hip. She is now
just able to be lifted out of bed by attendants. The last severe attack
of his heart trouble came suddenly on July 11 last. He has been in bed
ever since and much of the time his death was expected daily. The
funeral service will be held at his late residence on Glenida avenue,
on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and Rev. H. B. Warring, pastor of the
Baptist church will conduct them. The interment will be made in the
family plot in the Kelley cemetery.

the late Ebenezer and Huldah Kelley. She was born at the Kelley
homestead, this village, May 7, 1837, and at the time of her
death was 68 years, 6 months, and 12 days old. She was married to

the lake by the late Rev. Mr. Clapp. She has proved a loyal member and
earnest Christian and always attended regularly the services of the
church as long as physical strength would allow. She is survived by her
only son, Calvert J. Hazen, who resided with her; and by two sisters
and two brothers, Mrs. Emily Virginia Hopkins, Miss Sarah E. Kelley and

Mary Ann Cole was born near Long Pond in the town of Carmel,
September 10, 1815. Her parents were Deacon Levi H. and Hannah Cole.
They came from good old Putnam stock. Her grandparents on the paternal
side were Joseph and Rebecca Cole; on the maternal, Daniel and Susannah
Ogden Cole. Her great-grandparents were Elisha and Hannah Smalley Cole,
who came from Cape Cod to Putnam county in 1746, when Joseph was an
infant. When quite young, her parents moved from her birthplace to
another part of the town of Carmel, near the Putnam Valley line, and
also adjoining the farm of Hon. Saxton . Here she passed her
girlhood and was wooed and won by Dr. Isaac Barrett, who lived not far
away. They were married at her father's home, November 4, 1837, by Rev.
Mr. Higbie. Of those who witnessed the interesting ceremony but few now
remain. Their married life of nearly forty-three years was a happy one.
Dr. Barrett died February 20. 1880. After living for a time on the
homestead, she went to Peekskill remaining four years, an honored guest
in the family of her daughter, Mrs. Charlton. She then, by invitation
of another daughter, Mrs. James K. Smalley, moved to Cole's Mills,
where she lived until April, 1891, when she returned to Peekskill,
where she passed the remainder of her days.
Surrounded by christian influence and living in an atmosphere of
piety, she, at an early age, openly confessed a Savior's love and was
baptized. Since young womanhood, she has been a faithful, consistent,
and honored member of the Baptist church at Mahopac Falls. Mrs. Barrett

residence, 458 First street, Brooklyn, on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. Interment

OBITUARY: From Putnam County Courier, Friday, 13 May 1892
Ramah Cole, who died at his home, 458 First street,
Brooklyn, on Friday, May 6 was the second child and the eldest son of
Levi H. and Hannah Cole. His grandparents on his father's side were
Joseph and Rebecca Berry Cole; on his mother's side were Daniel and
Susan Ogden Cole. His great-grandparents were Elisha and Hannah Smalley
Cole, who came from Cape Cod to Putnam county in 1746, when Joseph was
an infant. Ramah was born in Carmel, near the spot where Henry C. Cole
now lives; but his father's family soon moved to the farm near the
residence of the late Saxton Smith, where he lived and reared a family
of 11 children. Ramah received his education at the public schools in
this county. November 22, 1835, he united by baptism with the Red
Mills, now Mahopac Falls, Baptist church and continued a member thereof
until February 26, 1848, when he moved his membership to the Stanton
Street Baptist church of New York city, then under the pastoral care of
Rev. Mr. Remington.
In February, 1844, he was married to Charlotte, daughter of James
and Sarah Carver. In the spring of the following year, he moved to New
York city and engaged in the business which he continued until his
death. In 1854 he moved to Brooklyn into a house he then purchased,
standing almost alone in the open country, and in which he has since
lived, until two or three years ago, watching the wonderful growth
during this almost half century of an overgrown village into a city of
munificent distances. Immediately on moving to Brooklyn, he united with
the Hanson Place Baptist church and held his membership there until his
death. For seventeen years he was treasurer of the church and disbursed
many thousands of dollars in that capacity. In early life he was a
Whig; but when the republican party began organization, he was among
the first to join it and has always been a staunch republican, although
naturally of a conservative disposition. He was a Baptist, heart, soul
and body, but did not judge another sharply for entertaining different
views of church government and ethics. He was at the time of his death
and had been for many years a member of the Produce Exchange of New
He leaves two sons, Wallace H. Cole and Frank J. Cole. Another,
the second son, named Abiather died in his youth. As a man he was
companionable; always carrying sunshine into the homes he visited, and
none gave him a heartier welcome than the children. The children living
in the vicinity of his home knew him well and saluted him with cheery
voices and kind words as they met him on the streets. Springing from a
family thoroughly religious for generations back, it is no wonder that
he early manifested a love for christian work, which grew with his
growth and increased with his years so that to him no place was more
pleasant than the House of God and no work more agreeable than to
advance the Master's kingdom.

superintendent of the Sunday school of the Memorial Baptist church. He
was the founder of this church and his church work was centered in its
interests. It was while connected with the Greenwood Baptist church
that Mr. Cole, twenty-one years ago. started a little mission in the
neighborhood, which grew under his constant care and direction into the
Memorial church. Few knew of his constant hard work, the many
difficulties, the tears, and prayers of the man of God before the
enterprise succeeded. Mr. Cole was a deacon and a member of the board
of trustees at the time of his death.
Stricken with paralysis on Monday, the 6th inst., hopes were
entertained for his, at least, partial recovery until Saturday evening.
All that medical science and loving care could do failed to restore
him, and, surrounded by his wife and daughters, he fell asleep early on
the Sabbath morning.
The funeral services were held at the Memorial Baptist church on
Tuesday evening and at Mahopac Falls on Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Cole
was born in 1827 on the farm, now occupied by the family of the late
Henry C. Cole, in the town of Carmel. His father was Levi and his
mother, Mrs. Hannah Cole. He has one sister living, Cyntha, widow of
the late Amos Austin, of Mahopac Falls, and one brother, Joseph of New
York. Besides there were eight other brothers and sisters, now dead.
They were Mary Ann, wife of Isaac Barrett; Ramah, John, Caroline, wife
of Sidney Tompkins; Amanda, wife of Theron Cole; Adeline, wife of Ira
Horton; Antoinette, wife of Jasper Cole and Daniel. He lived with his
father, Levi H. Cole, near Mahopac Falls, until 1848, when he went to
New York, where he lived until 1861. He then moved to Brooklyn and
lived there until he died. He was married four times and leaves a
widow, Mary Fayette, a sister of the late Joseph Cole, and three
daughters, Mrs. M. F. Agor, Mrs. Dr. W. F. Willington and Mrs. W. F.

OBITUARY: From Putnam County Courier 23 April 1897
In the death of Amos L. Austin, which occurred about 4 o'clock
Wednesday afternoon at the Austin homestead near Mahopic Falls, the
town of Carmel loses one of its best and most respected citizens. As
one who knew him well remarked in our presence yesterday, he was a
thoroughly honest, upright, good out-and-out man, word was always to be
depended upon. His death was due to pneumonia. Amos L. was the youngest
son of Silas and Elizabeth Tompkins Austin and was a descendant of
Jonathan Austin, who was said to have come to this part of the country
from Rye, Westchester county long before the Revolution, and died
previous to 1777. He was born June 10, 1827, and at his death was aged
69 years, 10 months, 11 days. He married Cynthia, daughter of Levi
Cole. She survives him with one daughter, Elizabeth, wife of Lafayette
Pinckney; and four sons, Silas, Levi Cole, Nelson and Theodore. A
sister, Phebe Austin, resided with him at the old homestead. The
funeral services will be attended tomorrow at 10:30 from the house and
11:30 at the Baptist church, Mahopic Falls.
