Son of Job and Hannah (Frye) Cole. Husband of Mary (Ball) Cole.
Married at the E. Street Congregational Church in South Boston on November 9, 1870 by the Rev. Edward A. Rand.
He was a bank president and a treasurer of the Algonquin Club of Boston. He was a member of the Society of Sons of the Revolution in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
"I know him, his career, and what he has done. I know the bankers and financiers of Wall and State streets, their careers, and what they have done; and I am ready to say that Charlie Cole can have the use of my pocket-book and my confidence when he returns to State Street, while there are at least one hundred financiers of the very highest standing in Wall and State streets-men in control of insurance companies, banks, trust companies, and corporations-whom I would not allow to get to either except by brute force after a tussle." - Spoken by Thomas W. Lawson, November, 1904.
Cole Road in Hingham is named in his honor.
He died from tuberculosis and pneumonia at St. Margaret's Hospital in Louisburg Square, Boston. His funeral was held at his home on Otis Street in Hingham.
