About Mahershallalhashbaz Coles

History and Genealogy of the Cock, Cocks, Cox Family By George William Cocks, John Cox

DANIEL (2) COLES, b. Ipswich, Mass., about 1637; m. Warwick, R. I., about 1662, Maha-shalal-hasbaz Gorton, dau. of Samuel and Mary (Mayplett) Gorton of Warwick.

The name of the daughter of Samuel Gorton who m. Daniel Coles, practically coinciding in structure with the "Maher-shalal-hash-baz," Isaiah viii: 1, 3. explained in the concordance as "in making speed to the spoil, he hasteneth the prey" seems difficult of application, but some of the perilous experiences in Gorton's heglra from Boston to Warwick, may have suggested the Jewish situation at the time of Isaiah's dreary prophesy.
