The Cole family lived in Marlborough, MA in the 1700s.

Archippus was b. Aug. 17, 1769 to Archippus and Drusilla (Howland) Cole

Archippus (Sr) died in Marlborough, June 20, 1812, age 85, making his birth date about 1727.

Archippus (Sr) married Drusilla Nov. 19, 1761 at abt. age 34.

It has been hypothesized that since Archippus had a brother Thomas that their father was also Thomas.


There was a Thomas who had twin boys, Thomas and Archippus who were born in Marlborough July 24, 1748, but this doesn't fit with the above dates.  This Thomas may be the Thomas who died in Marlborough, May 16, 1759, and may be the hypothesized brother.


I am trying to make a connection from Archippus (Sr) to his parents and would appreciate any help.  Thank you.
