Hi Debi,
I'm hoping you might be able to help with my search.

I am looking for the parents of WILLIAM COLE. He was born May 11, 1788 in New Jersey, and died September 09, 1863.
He married ELIZABETH DECOU December 30, 1813 in Oxford, Warren, New Jersey, daughter of JOHN DECOU and JANE THATCHER. Elizabeth was born May 22, 1792 in New Jersey, and died September 01, 1863. William and Elizabeth are my third great-grandparents.

I have a copy of the book "THE GENEALOGY OF THE DECOU FAMILY by S. Ella DeCou and John Allen DeCou". It names William's parents as being Christian and Magdalena (Insley) Cole. Although one of their sons is indeed named William, the rest of the information doesn't match my William.

Upon further searching, I found a Christian and Helga Cole, parents to the afore mentioned Christian (wife: Magdalena), who had a son named William. Christian and Helga immigrated from Germany about 1757 and lived in Warren, New Jersey.

Can you confirm my theory that Christian and Helga are indeed William's parents?

Thank you,
Lavon Cole
