Looking for information on the family history of my great-grandfather, George Washington Cole. He was born 8/22/1858 in Meridian,MS. His father may have also been named George. His mother may have been named Lizzy or Lou and may have been French and Indian (possibly Choctaw).

He married Marie Louisiana Poissot on 12/22/1891 in Natchitoches Parish,LA.

They had 10 children:
Suzzy (m. Issac Benjiman Lowery)
Louisiana (m. Bill Johnson)
Butch Steve
Laney (m. Fanny)
Leanna (m. Marshall Anderson)
Elizabeth
Berry Nita (m. Weldon Copeland)
Mary Alpha (my grandmother, m. 1.Andrew Jackson Alston & 2.Hiram Valentine Sheppard)James (m. Mamie)
Lement (d. in infancy).
They also raised their grandson Bill Johnson Jr. after the death of his mother Louisiana. Bill Johnson went by the name of Bill Cole.

The family lived in Texas.

George Washington Cole died 7/26/1920 in Bronson,TX

I realize this is almost 2 years after your posting, but I've only been on this "quest" a couple of months. I haven't found anything on George Washington Cole as yet. At the moment I'm waiting on his death certificate. I will be more than glad to send a copy to any ancestors who would like it (if I ever receive it!) My Grandmother was Susie Cole Lowrey, oldest daughter of George W. Cole and Marie A. Poissot Cole. Any leads will be very much appreciated.

I am the Great Grandson of Laney and Fanny Cole. Laney was the son of George and Marie Cole. I have found lots of info on Mare Poissot, I have been trying to find info on George W. Cole. I believe he was Cherokee Indian, and that he was from Meridian, MS. If anyone has any info on George or Marie, please email me.

Thank you,

William Cole
