Note: Notes for ASA COLE: Source: Pam Thompson
"Asa probably moved with his father to NY shortly after his marriage.In 1790 he appears in Hoosick, Albany County (in 1791 it becameRensselaer Co.), NY with one male over the age 16, one male under theage 16, and two females. In 1800 he appears in Ostego County, NY. Noprinted source indicates he went to Ostego Co., but he is there with aSisson Cole who was also in Hoosick on the 1790 Census, so it islikely the same Asa Cole. The History of Washington County, pp488-489,says that in 1799 Asa and his family 'emigrated to the westernfrontier and locating at Wheeling, Virginia, were for two years orthereabouts residents of the historical old block-house at that place.The father, Asa, was during this period engaged in packing salt fromthe Atlantic seaboard over the mountains to Wheeling for Zane, thefounder of the settlement. In the spring of 1801 the family becamesettlers on Indian Wheeling creek within the present limits of BelmontCounty, Ohio, and in 1806 they removed to Warren township, WashingtonCounty, where the father pursued the avocations of farming andkeel-boating for a number of years. He finally returned to BelmontCounty, where he died.' "
