Birth: 1831
Death: May 24, 1960

Charles was the son of William Thomas Cole and Sarah Gosling, and the grandson of Richard Cole and Sarah Jordan, both from England.

Charles was the second husband of Mary Ann Russell, the daughter of William Russell from England. They married in 1854 and had four children:
Mary Ann Cole 1854-1937
Fannie Cole 1857-1952
Charles Russell Cole 1859-1921
Victoria Marie Amelia Cole, Mrs Andrew Kneebone 1862-1930

Charles arrived in the Bridgeport area in early 1850. He married the widow of William Thompson at Thompson's request before he died. Charles homesteaded 160 acres in 1861 and built the Bridgeport house, a stage and wagon stop, in 1862. This is also the year the present covered bridge was built. Charles was 85 when he died.
