These 3 stones show up among massive Red Oak trees as in the front yard of a private home. Please show privacy and respect for the folks living here. My photos were directed away from their home.

William Cole is listed in the Madison County 1830 Census, but does not show up in the 1850 Census indicating that he had died by then. This may mean he is here in an unmarked grave beside his wife.
