Biography of Philip J. Cole
Springfield, Clark County, OH Biographies





PHILIP J. COLE, wholesale and retail grocer. Springfield. P. J. Cole added one to the population of Clark County on Feb. 11. 1841, being born in this township; he spent his early youth on the paternal farm; at 16, he evinced a disposition to rove, engaging in gold mining in Colorado, which was at that early day a much wilder country even than today. Young Cole lived a "rough and tumble" life in the Far West six years; returning to Springfield, he became engaged in mercantile pursuits, and has been for ten years continuously in his present business (except two years in Pennsylvania in the oil business, and a short trip to Europe), and is now doing a prosperous business. He is a member in excellent standing of the Knights of Pythias; also of the American Legion of Honor. Mr. Cole is still reckoned among Springfield's young business men; he is quick, full of energy and push, frank, straightforward and reliable, a true friend and a generous enemy, and enjoys the good opinion of the community; he is the elder brother of M. Cole, the lawyer.
