    Ezekiel Cole served during the Revolutionary War in a Northampton County Militia Unit. He moved to Columbia County (then Northumberland County) in 1793-93. Story is that he and William Hess visited the area as "rangers of the frontier" during the war, and liked what they saw. So, they packed up and moved from their homes/farms in Northampton County.

    Taken from a website onThe Ezekiel Cole Mill on Coles Creek, the first mill in northern Columbia County.

    William Hess came from Northampton County with his father-in-law, John Godhard, in 1792 and purchased a tract of land four miles long from the mouth of Coles Creek to North Mountain. He built a log cabin near a spring near the old Laubach store. His sons George, John, Andrew, Tobias, Conrad, Frederick, Henry, and Jacob took up residences in the valley of the creek above their father. His son-in-law, "Ezekiel Cole, located on a tract south of the homestead, at the home many would recognize as the later-day home of Hervey Long, and in 1795 he built the first grist mill in northern Columbia County at "Cole Town at the mouth of Coles Creek." He continued to operate the mill until 1820.
