My ancestor , John Wesley Cole orginally came from Virginia. His wife was Isabelle Montgomery. His son, John Cole, married Catherine Minix. I belive that Catherine's Dad was Charles Minix, who is related to the Ramey line. Country singer Patty Loveless maiden name is Ramey, and we are a forth-cousin once removed! Of course, I haven't gotten all of this documented. There is also some Cole bloodline with Jesse James also! I have to do further research on this...
My brother told me of the Cole ancestors in Kentucy having the Indians burning their crops--and in retalation our ancestors found a little Indian girl hiding in a feed bin, and took her! I find this all fasinating!
