Cole, T. U.
The following data is extracted from History of Fannin County, Texas.
In the life of this man, up to date, is afforded an example to the youth of this country. Of course all of them cannot be bank cashiers, as is the case with him, but in whatever position in life, fate or circumstances may place them, by an observance of the traits of character which have characterized the subject of this sketch, success, in every respect, will, attend them. Mr Cole was born in 1861, raised and educated in the state. The first, and perhaps the only business he ever entered into, was the banking business. He is cashier of the First National Blank of Honey Grove, and has held that position ever since that institution began business, giving perfect satisfaction to the Board of Directors and stockholders.
In his address, he is affable and agreeable, free from ostentation, yet neat and genteel in personal attire, and appearance. His knowledge of the banking business, business capacity, and known integrity, and uprightness of character, are his fortune, and it is made already.
