Info from: Mary(Coggin)Russell
Son of the, late Dr. John H. Cole, of New York City, was born May 4, 1845, in Claverack, N. Y.

He taught for one year in Danvers, Livingston County, N. Y., and then spent a year abroad. In the fall of 1868 he entered the law office of Judge Hooper C. VanVorst, of New York City, and in May, 1869, he was admitted to the bar. He was at first a member of the firm of VanVorst & Beardsley, but after Judge VanVorst's elevation to the bench he went into business by himself. He placed himself speedily among the successful members of the profession, and was especially sought after as referee in difficult and important causes. He refused all offers of political preferment, and found his chief recreation for many years in the collection of rare books. He was not married.

Early in October, 1889, he was thrown from his road-wagon while driving; and this accident, complicated with pneumonia, led to his death, at his residence in New York, on the 27th of that month, at the age of 44 1/2 years.
