After their marriage, Alma and Lesle Coles farmed for four years in the Williams, Iowa area. It was there that Murial Coles, their first child, was born. Lesle Carroll was born at Rochester, Minnesota, prior to the Coles' move to Waukesha, Wisconsin. This relocation may have occurred at the urging of Lesle's father and brother who were carpenters in Waukesha.
Mr. Coles was a builder by trade, and during World War II, he worked at Camp Grant, The Great Lakes Naval Training Center, and also at an ordinance plant. A veteran himself, Lesle had served in World War I as a mounted cavalryman in Southern France. This was with the American occupation forces near the Mediterranean.
Mrs. Coles loves fine objects of art, china, ivory, antique dishes, and has many valuable pieces from various parts of the world, which were sent to her from her son, Lesle, in the Navy. Frequently, she attends auctions in search of rare pieces. She and her husband also raise wild waterfowl, owning at least fifteen different species of geese and ducks.
Alma and Lesle Coles have resided at 2516 Grandview Boulevard in Waukesha, Wisconsin, sine 1936, the same year that Mrs. (Randaberg) Westwick, Alma's mother died.
