Samuel C. COLE, a s/o Joshua & Margaret (Cleavenger) Cole, Jr., was born on 4 Jun 1842, in Harrison County, VA, and was married on 18 Dec 1860, in Vigo County, IN, to Margaret Jane SOLOMON, born on 23 Nov 1843, in VA, place unknown, a d/o John Solomon. They were listed in the 1880 Posey Township, Clay County, IN, census with the following children:
*6c.3a) William T. Cole 8 Apr 1866-11 Apr 1886
*6c.3b) Saphronia Cole b.c. 1870-

Samuel C. Cole was a farmer. Samuel C. Cole died on 11 Jan 1904, at his home in Seelyville, Vigo County, IN; he was buried two days later with the services in the Seelyville church. His death notice reads: Samuel Cole "Samuel Cole, an old soldier, age 62, died at his home in Seelyville this morning at 6 o'clock, after a prolonged illness. Since the war he has suffered from a wounded leg which has greatly weakened this winter. He leaves a wife and five children, four girls and one boy, all married. He will be buried Saturday. The funeral will occur at the Seelyville church."
From the obituary, it appears that he must have been in the Civil War, but I can find no such documentation thereto.

There is a Jane Cole, b.c. 1842, listed in the 1910 Lost Creek Township, Vigo County, IN census; this woman was born in IN according to this record. Her one son, Levi Cole is also listed in this census. Margaret Jane (Solomon) Cole died on 16 Mar 1915, in Terre Haute, Vigo County, IN.
