Shockley Cole is my great, great grandfather. I don't have much information on him. I've found places with his name as Charles Shockley Cole and his birth date listed as 1827 in South Carolina. He himself has put Georgia as his birth place on one of the US Census I have seen. He married Martha C. Barnes on December 27, 1849, and his name on the license was Shockley. On the 1850 Census, he was shown as Shockley and on the 1860 Census it was just S. He was listed as S Cole on Civil War papers. This makes me wonder where Charles came from since he never used it, unless it was a middle name. I would love to hear from anyone who knows which Cole line is his. I want so much to have his parents names so I can do a more complete family tree. Any information is much appreciated.
