I have been working on my father's side of the family, Cole. The last information that I have is on Thomas Cole b. ABT. 1775 - died between 1840-1850 in Nottoway Co., Va. He was married to (first name only) Anna also b. ABT. 1775. Thomas was listed in the 1840 Nottoway Co., Va census.
The following is a list of Thomas and Anna's children: 1) William Cole b. 1796, d. 1855, married Elizabeth G. Barrow, 12/01/1821 in Brunswick Co., Va 2) Thomas Cole, b. 1794, married Elizabeth Moore on 2/17/1817 in Brunswick Co., Va 3) Sterling Cole, married Rebecca Fergeson on 12/12/1820 in Brunswick Co., Va 4) Annie Cole, and 5) Hamlin Cole married (1) Martha Morrise on 1/15, 1817 and married (2) Angelina Bishop on 9/09/1837.
Thomas was one of three brothers, I believe, who came from England and setted in Richmond, VA area. The family then branched off into WV - especially in Raleigh County.
If you have any information or if any of these names sound familiar, please email me. I would love to exchange what I have at this time. Thanks. Linda
