About Peter Hole

If Peter was born in 1715 in England then his mother Catherina was Jacob Hole Jr.s wife before Jacob Jr. came with next wife Barbara and four sons to America. Since Peter died in Virginia in his sixties, it is probable that when still in England, his mother had died and his father remarried. Peter came with them, whether separately or together depending partly on his age when they came to America. The Holes came to America when their youngest son Daniel was ten. Peter would have been 25 when they arrived. What seems a pity is that the boys' parents both died the same year they came to America; they might even have died on the voyage.

There has also been a misconnection between Mary "Polly" Bedell/Beedle and Jacob Hole, Jr. "Polly" was the wife of Charles Daniel Hole ("Daniel Jr."), NOT the wife of Jacob Hole Jr. From my sister's book, " 1795, Daniel Hole, Jr. and his father-in-law, William Beedle (recently changed from Bedell) headed up the Miami Valley...About thirty miles north of Cincinnati, they built a blockhouse near Turtle Creek. For new settlers in the area, Beedle's Station was the only protection from Indians." - from West and Back: How Our Families Help Make a Nation, by Katharine Burke Graziano, self-pub. 1995, p. 17 This indicates that Mary "Polly" Beedle/Bedell was the wife of Charles Daniel Hole ("Daniel Jr.").
