COLE family in Virigina/Kentucky/Illinois

Surnames: Cole, Asher, Petty, Childs, Cooper, Powell, Livingston
I seem to be having trouble finding accurate information on my line of the Cole family.

I am showing:

William F Asher married Mary Cole (she seems to be born in Kentucy, died in Morgan County IL)

daughter of George Cole married to Rhoda Powell (both died in Morgan county IL)

son of Joseph Cole & Elizabeth Petty (both died in Mercer Kentucy)

son of John Cole & Ann Livingston (VA) (she is wife one, John then seems to have married again with more children from marriage 2)
son of John Cole b circa 1719 & Ann Livingston (Luneburg Virginia)


this is where things to haywire - everything seems to point to his parents being Joseph Cole born circa 1693 married to Sarah (a lot of pointing to a Sarah Cooper). I keep seeing TWO birthplaces, one Virginia, one Massachusetts. All links put parents as James Cole & Hannah Childs - born (and died???) in Massachusetts.

Does anyone have 'proof' of this tie or is everyone copying everyone else in trying to tie to Plymouth lines erroneously. Did any of the Mass. Coles migrate as far south as VA in the early colonial era? The logic doesn't make sense to me. I would love to keep the Cole/Childs tie but if it is wrong I'm willing to dump it for good.


Much thanks in advance for any help!

Milisa (John Asher, son of William Asher & Mary Cole was my gggrandfather)
