Yes, but just wondering if the poster is following the right guy

Yes, thank you, trying to get from birth coming forward. I think it helps to have the correct information from the beginning.

Just trying to confirm.

Have you found anything from 1881.

I think the query relates to what happened to him after 1881.

George Frederick Cole was known to be born in Devonshire and served in the 82nd Regiment of Foot where he served in Limerick, Ireland returning to England after his service there. On the 1881 census he shown as living in Sittingbourne, Kent where he worked in a papermill. He is not found on the 1891 census with his wife and family who still live in Sittingbourne. His wife is still shown as married at this time and when the 1901 census was taken she is shown as a widow. Did he rejoin the Army and is it possible that he was killed in the Boer War? Any help would be most appreciated as he was my great grandfather. I am now shortly to be 86 and would like to get this cleared up so that I can finish my tree before anything happens to me.
