Our family stories include being related to Jesse James & Cole Younger.
Also, Indian blood line, possibly Cherokee. Was told one of my grandmothers was in the Trail of Tears.
Would appreciate any information.
Most of the family came from Kentucky-Tennessee-North or South Carolina.
My grandfather, William Sylvester Cole's brother & sisters were -- Herman (Red), Elbert, George?, Myrtle, Tilda- also known as "T".
Thanks. God Bless.

Hi Susan, I am researching my Cole line and some of your stuff sounded familiar. My family is from the same states, are supposed to be related to Cole Younger, and has Native roots also. I was also told that our blood was Cherokee. But after researching this line I believe it to be 1/2 Cherokee, and 1/2 Shawnee, Deleware, or Miami...
Anyway, I have too much info to list here, please email me if you want to swap info...thanks joemredthunder@aol.com
