Tombstone Tuesday: Jane (Milstead?) Cole
Tombstone Tuesday is an ongoing series inspired by Geneabloggers.com that I thought might be a nice addition to this blog.
In Prince Wm. Co. Va.
March 18, 1818
May 16, 1890
aged 74 years, 1 month, and 28 days
Jane Cole is my 3rd great-grandmother. She married Lawrence Cole, a prominent landowner in Independent Hill, sometime before 1835. I have yet to find the details of their marriage and am uncertain of her maiden name, but she is listed as "Jane Milstead" on the death record of her son, James Lawrence Cole, who died in Prince William County in 1914.
Jane (Milstead?) Cole is buried in the family cemetery beside her husband on Joplin Road in Independent Hill, VA.
