Mark Cole, of Tennessee, came to Missouri in 1817, and settled in Montgomery County. He married Dorcas Hall, a daughter of William Hall, who settled on Dry Fork of Loutre in 1817. Mr. Cole was a hatter by trade, and the first that settled in Montgomery County. He made “Boss” Logan’s famous hat, which he wore twenty years. It was composed of twenty ounces of muskrat far, mixed with thirteen ounces of raccoon fur, and would hold an even half-bushel. The crown was eighteen inches high, and the brim six inches wide. Mr. Cole died in 1854, but his widow is still living. Their children were Stephen H., William C., John W., Henry W., David D., James A., Robert T., Marcus L.., Jerusha A., Mary M., Elizabeth S., Sarah A., and Nancy J., all of whom are still living except James A. and Nancy J.
