My Emery Cole is the brother to my grandmother, Letha Cole who married William Esther Smith. She moved from Mississippi to Texas when she was at least 7 years old. I believe that Emery is a middle name. I found this family on a 1900 Texas Census in which Emery is listed as Hayden E. Cole age 13 born in Mississippi 1886. There is also another brother William E. Cole who is listed on the 1880 Tishomingo Co. Mississippi Census age 1 yr old born in Mississippi. Parents born (father) SC and (mother) born Ala.
I would like to know more about your Emery Cole. Look forward to hearing from you. Carol
