was born in 1609 at England. He married Rebecca Collier
, daughter of William Collier
and Jane Clarke
, on 15 May 1634 at Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Job Cole died after 1683. COLE, JOB -Job Cole was in Plymouth at least as early as 14 September 1633, when Richard Langford died, and his inventory included a debt he owed to Job Cole (MD 1:86). He was probably the Job Cole named as a brother in the will of Zaccheus Cole on 16 November 1630, and was probably then living in St. Olave, Southwark, Surrey (see John G. Hunt, 'Origin of Three Early Plymouth Families: Cole, Collier, and Clarke,' TAG 42:119). He was clearly identical with the Job Cole named in will of his brother John Cole, q.v., and the bequests by the family-less John also to several of Mr. Colfier's men shows a possibility that John, and therefore perhaps Job, too, were the ones called on the 1633 tax list 'Mr. Coniers men.' This possibility is increased by the fact that Job Cole mar. on 15 May 1634 Rebecca Collier (PCR 1:30), the daughter of William Collier She had been baptized at St. Olave, Southwark, Surrey, 10 January 1614/15 (TAG 49:215), the parish associated above with Job Cole. Rebecca Cole, the widow of job Cole, died at Eastham 29 December 1698, about eighty-eight years old (MD 6:204). On 16 May 1639 Mr. John Atwood agreed that since Job Cole paid the passage of Thomas Gray and gave him some clothing, Cole could have the remainder of Gray's indenture (PCR 1:121). Cole became a freeman 3 March 1639/40 (PCR 1: 140). He had land in Duxbury (PCR 1:66, 85) and Green's Harbor (PCR 1:91), and he was a constable for Duxbury 2 March 1640/41 (PCR 2:9). He was a deputy for Yarmouth 5 June 1644 and a constable for Nauset (Eastham) 7 June 1648 (PCR 2:72, 124). He was a surveyor of the highways for Eastham 6 June 1654 (PCR 3:50). He was known to have had at least two children, the Rebecca Cole who was bom at Eastham 26 August 1654 (PCR 8:15), and the Daniel Cole, Jr. Job Cole's brother Daniel would have been Sr. -see John Cole, below), who was called the son of Job and was fined for cursing on 5 June 1672 (PCR 5:94). On 29 October 1671 the court ordered that Daniel Cole should have certain items from the estate of William Collier that were specified in a paper given to him by Collier (PCR 5:80).
