One genealogy thinks this is correct, While it is conceivable mothers last name was misremembered or poorly handwritten, I am somewhat dubious.

California, Death Index, 1940-1997:

Name: Francis Cole
Event: Death
Event Date: 19 May 1956
Event Place: Napa, California, United States
Birth Date: 10 Aug 1869
Birthplace: California
Gender: Male
Father: Cole
Mother: Jenkins

(note: this could be a Francis Marion Cole who is shown here to be living in Napa: but this site lists that Francis DoB as 1855 )

grave for the above - served in WWI should mean sufficient military records to determine if match is correct.
