My aunt's middle name was Wellons. I wonder about a connection. Below is listed the family history. At the bottom of the page is listed Lelia Wellons High. I know that my family has a history of using old family names for middle names. Does anyone know of this connection?
Hattie Lee Cole
Junuis L. Cole b. 12-19-1860
Joseph L. Cole b. 8-13-1862
Euretta E. Cole b. 2-18-1867
Aurell Pendleton O'Kelly Cole b. 7-26-1869
Mary Sue Cole b. 4-1-1871 (There is a notation here by Mom: It reads
"Aunt Mattie"
William C. Cole b. 12-26-1873
Eugenia P. Cole b. 5-25 (no year)
She then Lists "children" with an arrow pointing to the above list,
however it does not say whose children. The arrow points directly at
Eugenia, but could be children of all of the above.
Joseph Benson Cole b. 12-21-1831
married Mary Jane Hearndon b. 1-29-1838
Joseph and Mary married 1-29-1858
by John R. Holt, minister

ok, here is the connection...My grandmother's maiden name was High. The
Coles married into the High family. Listed below is the connection.
Columbus Anderson High b. 7-18-1866
married Hattie Lee Cole b. 2-18-1866
They married 12-18-1889
They were married by a Patric Massey

Their Children include my Grandmother, Iola Mae High (married a Hall)
Herbert Olive High b. 2-19-1891
Iola Mae High b. 4-11-1896
****Lelia Wellons High b. 7-26-1899***
Mary Frances High b. -3-2-1903

Do you know anything about the High family. If so, do you know where the
Wellons name originated?

Again, thanks for your help. Let me know.
