Cole was the only male child in his family and family stories say that he had a lot of sisters. And he was born in Buncombe County, North Carolina, about 1802. Samuel Cole was reported on the 1800 Buncombe County census as having 4 daughters and no sons. He was reported in the 1810 Buncombe County census as having 8 daughters and 1 son.
