Posted on July 30, 2014 by bettypeacock

COLE, CALVIN BENNETT “BOYD”, was named Cavel Bennett COLE at birth honoring his Calvin B. Cole (colecb.jpg 43733 bytes)great grandfathers Cavel Boyd McLEAN and Bennett COLE. When he entered the service for his country somehow his name became Calvin B. COLE. To his family, he was known as Boyd. Sometimes in life he was called “Cannon Ball”. Later in business life his signed his papers C. B. COLE which was fitting for all his names.

Cavel Bennett COLE was born 1 April 1892 and died 21 November 1968. He is buried in the Wayne County Memory Gardens. He was the son of Wm. Pogue and Reachel Frances (Fannie) McLEAN COLE. He married Emma RAY on 7 December 1913. She was a daughter of Wm. A. “Bud” and Margaret C. MORRISON RAY of the Factory Community. Emma was born 10 May 1896, died 24 June 1981. They had five children: (1) Vernon C. COLE, b. 24 Sep 1914 in the Sweetwater Community. He now lives in Milan, TN. (Nov. 1990). (2) Everette Charles (E.C.) COLE, b. in Nebraska on 4 Oct 1928. Now living in El Jobean, Florida, unmarried, retired from the military. (3). C. B. COLE, Jr., b. 24 Oct 1930, lived in the Deerfield community in Lawrence Co., TN. (4) Gus COLE, b. 27 Mar 1935 in Wayne Co., TN. He married to Dianne (__?__) and they have four children: William, b. 14 April 1961; Dianne, b. 21 June 1965; Debra, b. 3 July 1963; and Jinnie, b. 17 June 1969. They now live in Florida. (5) Thomas COLE, b. 21 Oct 1937, lives in El Jobean, Florida.

C. B. COLE worked on the farm with his father. As a young man he and an older brother Frank went west, probably to Washington state. When World War I approached, he came back home and enlisted at Waynesboro, Tennessee. The date he enlisted and returned is not known to this writer. He served in both France and Germany in 1917 and 1918. When the war was over, he came back to Wayne County. During the Depression, he went to Nebraska and worked at public works. Probably in the later part of the 1930′s he brought the family back to Sweetwater, purchased Emm’s homeplace and farmed for some years and worked with the Wayne C. AAA Office. Later he sold this place to Mr. JENKINS, moved to Lawrence Co., TN, settling in the Deerfield Community where he was living when he died. He was a republican in politics and enjoyed fox hunting and fishing. Emma and he were members of the Zion Baptist Church.
