Rachel Cole1

F, #9744, b. 30 December 1817, d. 3 April 1885
     Rachel Cole was born on 30 December 1817 at NY.1 She was the daughter of John Cole and Elizabeth Skinner.1 Rachel Cole married Horace Loren Donelson, son of Ira Donelson and Mary Shattuck, in 1838 at MI.1 Rachel Cole died on 3 April 1885 at Genesee Co., MI, at age 67; "Donalson."1 She was buried at Evergreen Cemetery, Whigville, Grand Blanc, Genesee Co., MI.1
     Rachel Cole, daughter of John and Elizabeth Cole 'of Atherton Township' (according to handwritten history of the Donelson family), born in New York in December of 1817, is ALMOST CERTAINLY the youngest daughter of John Cole and Elizabeth Skinner, of Readington, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, who migrated through New York state (their youngest son James Madison Cole is stated by some to have been born there in 1814) to Waterford Township, Oakland County, Michigan, where they died. John and Elizabeth's older son Tunis Cole is found living in very close proximity to Horace and Rachel Donelson in the 1840, 1850, and 1860 Genesee County, Michigan censuses. Although the 1880 U.S. Census of Genesee Co., MI claims that Rachel's parents were both born in New York, this is probably in error.1      Photo courtesy of Linda Belote.2

Ira Donelson1

M, #9747, b. 5 August 1790, d. 10 August 1872
     Ira Donelson was born on 5 August 1790 at Colrain, Franklin Co., MA.2 He was the son of Matthew Donelson and Sarah Patterson.1 Ira Donelson married Mary Shattuck, daughter of Abel Shattuck and Lydia Oak, in 1815.1 Ira Donelson died on 10 August 1872 at Pontiac, Oakland Co., MI, at age 82.2
     In 1827 Ira Donelson made his way overland from Massachusetts to Buffalo, New York, there took a schooner on Lake Erie and nine days later arrived in Detroit. He took an ox team at the last named place and following the Indian trail made his way to Waterford township, Oakland County, where he lived the rest of his life. He bought a tract of 160 acres of land, 10 acres of which were partially cleared, and there built a small log cabin in which he lived with his family for 10 years. It was in this house that the first Methodist church of Oakland County was organized by a party of 12 people who met there for that purpose. The cabin was thereafter known as the "Methodist Tavern" until a church was built. Ira Donelson cleared about 80 acres of his farm and built a large barn, 32 by 50 feet in dimensions. He later purchased 120 acres of the government, which with that acquired from other sources made him owner of about 400 acres in the county. He began with little or no means and this accumulation was the result of untiring industry. He was a very good scholar, took an interest in public affairs and was a supporter of the Whig party until the organization of the Republican party when he became affiliated with the latter. He was also teacher in the first school District No. 1, of Waterford township.3
