James H. McCole and Grandson Paul

October 7, 2010

James Henry McCole (1860-1942), son of Cornelius and Catherine Higgins McCole, was born at the McCole farm in Brant (Chilton), Wisconsin. Soon after his marriage to Mary Nolan in 1887, he homesteaded in Tilden, Antelope County, Nebraska, where he had five children.  His fourth child, Cornelius Ambrose married Audrey Acrea and lived in Idaho where their son Paul, above, was born in 1917. Cornelius died later that year.

The picture above was probably taken  in Twin Falls, ID, about the time of Cornelius’s death.

Audrey Acrea McCole subsequently married Millard F. Shuford and moved to Oklahoma (1930 Census) and Paul took the surname Shuford.
