Trying to learn birthplace and parents names of Simeon Cole born 26 October 1747 or 1749. Historical Society gave me the date of 26 Oct 1747. Simeon married Elizabeth Sherman of Woodbury and later moved to St. Johnsbury, Vermont and later to the Eastern Townships of Quebec Canada. I include a listing on the family of Simeon Cole from a book on Stanstead County. Having a terrible time find a birth record on Simeon. Waterbury, Woodbury and Watertown have no record of birth on him. Thanks you your help! Jacqueline Sleeper Russell <>
FAMILY OF SIMEON COLE Note: discovered Eliz. Sherman was from Woodbury not Waterbury and have her line.
