Looking for Solomon Cole, b. 27 Aug 1801

Researcher Kevin Washburn has been stuck on this ancestor, who he believes came from Greene.  Most records indicate his birth as being in Greene.  By 1820, he was living in Parkman, Maine, where he later reared his family.  A look at census records and it appears that there were only two Cole's that lived in this area in 1800 - Benjamin Cole and William Cole.  Perhaps one of these two men was his father?  Below is a brief summary of this family:

SOLOMON COLE was b. 27 Aug 1801 in Greene, Maine and d. 12 Aug 1885 in Abbott, Maine.  He m. ARSENATH HALL SCRIBNER 08 Nov 1824 in Parkman, Maine, daughter of DANIEL SCRIBNER and HANNAH SAMPSON.  She was b. 08 Oct 1808 in Harrison, Maine, and d. 16 Oct 1886 in Abbott, Maine.

Children of SOLOMON COLE and ARSENATH SCRIBNER are:

  1. DANIEL SCRIBNER COLE, b. 08 Aug 1826 in Parkman, Maine; d. 02 Feb 1876 in Saratoga, New York; m. JULIA STEVENS, 30 Apr 1853 in Parkman, Maine
  2. MARY ANN COLE, b. 18 Mar 1828 in Parkman, Maine; d. 28 Dec 1913 in Bangor, Maine; m. SEWALL B. LOMBARD, 25 Dec 1847.  He was b. abt 1822 in Guilford, Maine.
