I've had a look at the 1870 annotated census for Pr. Wm. Co. and Rebecca COLE
(d/o Harriett Butler), wife of Albert COLE (s/o Henry/Betsy), is listed as a
*white* female, age 25. Albert is listed as a mulatto male and is age 35, a
farm laborer. Also listed on the census with them is son William (age 1
year, mulatto) and Martha E. (born 5/9/1870 in Pr.Wm., mulatto).
I have copies of COLE references in the 1850 - 1880, 1900 Pr. Wm. Co. census
as well as some COLE marriages for the county, for anyone else who might be
researching this line.
