Thanks so much. The info doesn't sound like mine, but the Lord only knows.
I have found that these Cole's were a "crazy bunch" (that's in a nice way) so elusive.
At the Clayton Genealogical library here in Houston, Tx......they have a huge book on the "Cole's." Very difficult to go thru because some pages are typed on old typewriters, some are blue purple from the dye's used, some are typed, and some are handwritten. Guess I will have to take a day and try to cover most of it. It is about 6" deep.
