Hello, I too am searching for memebers of my Cole clan. My ggrandfather was born in Alabama 25 Dec 1825 (GILES M. COLE) & his family moved to Alexander Co., IL around 1832. I do not know his parents names, but he is the oldest child. Giles M. Cole, Peggy Cole, Mary Jane Cole,Christopher Columbus Cole, Christina Cole,William Henry Cole, Leanna Sue Cole, Elizabeth "Eliza" Jane Cole and Rutha Ann Cole. After the parents died, sometime between 1845 & 1849 Giles married Martha Jane Morgan and they moved to Missouri in 1852.
I would like to know what the "M" stands for in Giles M. Cole. Since you have mulitple names, in your family line, that start with M I was curious.
