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 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.
