could you help me with information you have on WILLIAM TEMPLE COLE?

I know Wm. T. COLE was in Rowan Co., NC. is he the WILLIAM COLE that helped establish Randolph Co., NC in 1774? I saw that WILLIAM COLE was listed along with other Rowan Co., NC men such as Wm. MILLIAN, J. SHEPPARD, among others, as founding fathers of Randolph Co., NC. I never see WILLIAM COLE in Randolph Co., NC listed as WILLIAM T. COLE so I am not sure if there is any relation.

would like any help you can give me on WILLIAM COLE in Randolph Co., NC. I have that WILLIAM COLE ma. Susanna and was the father of STEPHEN COLE. LIZ

I have a William Temple Coles who received a Grant to himself and Lewis Beard in Randolph County. 640 acres. This grant was in thew id 1780's [not sure exactly when as I am away from my proof]. It was originally granted in Guilford but when it was surveyed the land had become part of the new Randolph County. My WTC was a Captain in the NC Cont'l Line from Rowan County. His father was William Temple Coles, sheriff, JP and other offices in Rowan Co. Will be glad to share info.

I am a direct descendant of William Temple Coles. He was born in Dublin Ireland in 1735 and supposedly came to American in 1754 with the expedition for the French and Indian War. I have ALL info on him and his descendants to the present time. I also have his parents and Grandparents. I have written a fully footnoted Loose Leaf Book on WTC. I have formed a group of Coles Cousins and we have banded together to further research on this Coles Ancestor. There are about 30 of us and we pay $25.00 a year in order to fund research in Ireland and England. The book can be copies for $40.00 and the mailing cost is 9.95. I will be glad to furnish any other info on WTC you maight need. Please write me direct at

Would it be possible to learn if this William had a daughter named Ann who married a Henry Phifer? I am just trying to locate her parents.

To whom it may concern:

I am writing with regard to the “Coles Group” that researches genealogy, as I have taken up this hobby and would appreciate guidance. Unfortunately, the very helpful Mr. William "Bill" H. Coles passed in 2011, after his books were published. I am certain that we will miss his research and value his contributions.

I have traced my bloodline up to Thomas Coles, Esq. with uncertain connection to father Henry Coles III, as well as the branches of the royal Drake bloodline thanks to my great-grandfather Doyle Alexander Coles’ marriage to Iris Ava Drake. While the Drake line is certainly filled with exciting noble history, I am struggling to confirm details on the Coles side – most notably with William Temple Coles Jr and III.

Is the "Coles Research Group" still active? Do you have any interest in an apprentice?
