This was in the "Centennial Biographical History of Hancock County" under Raymond Cole and Ralph D. Cole.

Raymond Cole
The family from which he sprung were long settled in Delaware and his grandfather, Perry Cole, died in that state during the earlier half of the nineteenth century. He left a son named James, who married Rachel Webster, and with her migrated from their state to Ohio, locating at Huron, in Erie county, about 1835. At a later period they resided for a while in Richland County, but subsequently went to Ashland and from there to Hancock county, where they remained as permanent residents. Their son Raymond Cole, who was born in Ashland county, Ohio, March 5, 1846, was eighteen years old when his parents came to Hancock county in 1864.
....then it goes on to tell about Raymond Cole.
Ralph D. Cole
The family originated in Delaware, but sent representatives among the first pioneers of Ohio and thus became identified with the state at a very early period. Harry Cole, grandfather of Ralph D., came from Delaware early in the nineteenth century and settled in Ashland county. There, in 1821, his son, John W. Cole was born and there he grew up and cultivated a farm until about 1860, when he came to Hancock county.
