      "Thomas Jefferson Cole married Lucinda "Salina" Wilson on July 8, 1966 in Yell County Arkansas. To this marriage, there were nine "known" children born: Rufus Francis (1868), Mattie Refina (1869), James Gabriel (1871), John Newton (1873), Mary Jane (1874), Charles Sumner (1877), Seth J (1879), Blanche (1882), and Ruel (1882). All 9 of the children were born in and around Magazine, Yell County, Arkansas. Salina passed away on March 20, 1887 at the age of 42, and was buried in the Cole Family Cemetery near Chickalah and Ranger in Yell County on her Grandfather, Hiram Cole's farm.

      Some time after Salina died in 1887, and before 1900, Thomas Jefferrson moved to Indian Territory in Oklahoma. Soon after that he moved to Graham, Young County, Texas. He died there in August 1915 at the age of 71. The only thing that we know about his burial is that his Texas Death Certificate states that his body was sent to Danville, Yell County, Arkansas for burial. After searching cemeteries in Yell County, and not finding a burial, I have made this memorial placing Thomas Jefferson Choate in the Cole Cemetery beside his wife Salina (and there are some unmarked graves there).
