Does Shockley Cole appear? He was born 1827 somewhere in South Carolina. I have been unable to find any info on his parents or siblings. He came to Alabama at some point as he married Martha C. Barnes in 1849 in Talladega County. He died in either 1863 or 1865, depending on which government record you view. He apparently died in Mississippi in the Civil War.
He is my gggrandfather, and I would love to trace his line further back.
Thanks for any help,
