In early life she came to Sauk Co., Wis. where she was united in marriage to Gilman E. Cole, Nov. 1, 1854, after which they located near Reedsburg in Sauk Co., where were born four children, Roderick D., Beder A., Rosetta A., and Charley G. the first named dying in infancy.

In 1874 they moved to Woodstock, Richland Co., where Rosetta A. died in August 1882. In March 1896 her husband died at Woodstock.

She continued to reside there until 1911, when she moved near Thorp in Clark Co., where she resided until death.

On March 3, 1876, she obeyed the gospel of her Lord during the ministry of F. M. Stewart of Woodstock.
