Hi Joy, well we just might be connected.
Our Stephen Cole's groupsheet at

He migrated with Congers who settled at Mimosa, TN. These people once lived in Rowen Co. NC before migrating to Lincoln Co. TN. The Isaac Conger family remained at Mimosa which is not far from Belleville. Our Coles left and went to west Lincoln Co. and lived at Taft, TN
This Cole/Conger line came to Lincoln Co. just after 1800 about the time lincoln Co. was formed in 1807. Like to here from you. Email me at C.M. Wright

Looking for any info on Eli Cole who was born about 1790 in North Carolina. He and wife Hester Fincher (born in S. C?) were living in Lincoln Co., TN. by 1850, operating a large farm with slaves. Hester is shown as being a daughter of Francis Fincher and Elizabeth Bishop. Some have stated that Eli and Hester moved to Grayson Co., TX. with daughters Jane and Mary who married Wheeler brothers, William and Drury. It is written that Eli died in 1854 and Hester died in 1858. To see these old Cole/Wheeler family notes, go to Findagrave and search, Jane Wheeler, 1828-1872, but don't enter the state because the exact location of her burial, apparently in Grayson Co., Texas, has not been established.
