Picking up on the 1871 Census where Harriett is listed as the wife of Joseph Cole:

Lydbrook Hill
38 Joseph Cole Head 39 1832 Male Lydbrook Gloucestershire England
38 Harriett Cole Wife 33 1838 Female English Bicknor
38 Ezabela Cole Daughter 8 1863 Female Whitchurch
38 Morris Coles Son 3mons 1868 Male Lydbrook Gloucestershire England

we look for the marriage which we find in the Parish Records on this site. It took place at Drybrook Parish Church on 21 April 1970 and was between Joseph COLES and Harriett WILLIAMS, a widow and daughter of Thomas Jarrett. The daughter Ezabela (Isabella) is born at Whitchurch and we find a Baptism on 12 July 1863 of Isabella WILLIAMS daughter of William and Harriet WILLIAMS at Whitchurch.
Harriett is said to be a widow when she married Joseph COLES and we find a burial in the Parish Records of William WILLIAMS aged 29 at Whitchurch on 8 July 1866. Our next step is to find a marriage between William WILLIAMS and Harriett and in the Parish Records is a marriage at Whitchurch on 1 September 1861 between William WILLIAMS and Harriet EVANS daughter of Thomas JARRETT, fisherman. We then look for a baptism of Harriett EVANS and again in the Parish Records on this site is this record:
