  • Notes 
    • JACOB COLE, ex-county commissioner, farmer and stockgrower, was born in Morris Township, Greene County, Penn., October 28, 1823. He is a son of John T. and Mary (Crodinger (sic)), who were of English and Dutch extraction. They came to Greene County and settled in Morris Township in 1815, on a farm near Nineveh, resided there until 1835, then removed to Wayne Township, and spent the balance of their lives. Five of their eight children grew to maturity, and all reside in this county. Jacob, the fourth member of the family, was from his youth engaged in agricultural pursuits. He attended the common school, and subsequently bought a farm in Wayne Township and engaged in farmer and stockraising. His farm in Franklin Township contains 100 acres. In 1879 Mr. Cole retired from the active work of the farm, and has since resided in Waynesburg. The same year he was elected county commissioner and served one term. In 1845 he was united in marriage with Frances, daughter of Abraham and Mary (Hamilton) Tustin. The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Cole has been blessed with eight children, seven of whom grew to maturity--Mary J., deceased, who was the wife of Israel Shriver; Isaac S., a farmer; Elizabeth, wife of Jesse Knight; Caroline, wife of Miner Carpenter; J. T., Abijah and William. In politics Mr. Cole is a Democrat. He is ever interested in school affairs, and has been school director in his township. He took an active interest in the Granger movement, and served as treasurer of the society for several years in Wayne Township.
