I'm ashamed to say that I really don't know much, that is why I was looking at this site. My father and mother were divorced when I was a baby. I do have some information I can give you later(Have to look it up). For right now all I can tell you is that my father Emery Cole jr. was the son of Emery Cole sr. born and raised in Bearlake Michigan,Manistee County. Our ancestry goes back 100 years in Manistee County, all the way back to what I believe to be my grgr grandfather Sylvester Cole. My father died in 1989, and unfortunately I don't know much. I believe his mother was from Tennessee. I can give you more information if you want, let me know. I do know he had a sister Stella Cole, and a brother Ralph Cole, both from Manistee County.
