CASE, COALE, COLE, CROWN posted by Richard j. Cole on Friday, April 3, 1998

 I am researching the Montgomery Co. area for information on the COALE/COLE family.  My gg grandfather JOHN COALE (later changed to COLE) was born between 1776 and 1799.  He married SUSANNA CROWN (born abt. 1800) 11 Sept. 1823 (this info found in St Mary's Church records, Rockville, Md.) They had three children, SARAH COLE (CASE), WILLIAM COLE, MARGARET COLE. JOHN COLE died about May, 1846. I am seeking information about his birth date/place, parents, their parents, and his burial site. I am also seeking information about the CROWN and CASE families. Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Dick Cole, 12740-4 Camino De La Breccia, San Diego, CA. 92128

DUNN, KING posted by Michael Luck on Friday, April 3, 1998

I am searching for any information on John King a.k.a. "Jack". He lived in Montgomery Co. MD around 1927 (the year my father was born). He had a sister named Kitty, could be short for Kate or Katherine. She lived on Grant Ave. in  Takoma Park. She may have married into a family by the last name of Dunn, and relocated to Virginia. He was the Fire Chief around that same time (1927) in Takoma Park MD. He is buried at St. John's Cemetary in Forest Glen, MD. I think. Any information would be most helpful. My father never knew his father or much about him.  I'm only seeking info for geneaology purposes.

I have the following information about the GORDON family: Ida GORDON, born in around 1860, remembered seeing smoke from the Civil War in Silver Spring, MD, so they may have come from there. Sister Ruth Cheney GORDON born ten years later in 1870. Father Henry GORDON died in train accident to Washington D. C. Ruth moved in around 1892 to Ashland, NH. Anything anyone can tell me about the Gordon family would be welcome!
