Just found your post on the Cole family. I am trying to discover Cole ancestors and history. All I can give you is my great-great grandfather's name-William Willis Cole. From his obituary he was born May 1, 1813 in Jefferson Co., Ky on "the famous grounds of Daniel Boone". He later moved to Ohio with his father (unknown) who was in the military. Wm. Willis Cole married Susan (Susannah) Hindman in Sandusky Co. OH. He resided in Hudson, MI and in 1896 homesteaded in Kandiyohi Co, MN. I have no names of his mother or siblings and am hitting a brick wall whereever I search. Could you help me out, if only to eliminate your branch?
