Subject: [COLE] Cole - NC to TN to AL
Date: Fri, 29 Mar 2013 00:47:04 -0400 (EDT)
Looking for the parents of Samuel Cole, b. abt 1801 in NC, m. 4 Jan 1824,
Lawrence County, TN, to Nancy Cottrell, who died 31 Oct 1857, bur Harlan
Cemetery, near Bonnertown, TN. Samuel and Nancy were parents of Elizabeth,
William, Thomas, Pleasant, Isaac and perhaps others.
Samuel married as his second wife, Mary Ann Lovell, widow of Reuben Lovell
who had been killed in the War Between the States. They were parents of
Nancy, Frances, Samuel, Levi and Monroe Cole. Samuel died after the 1880
Census of Limestone County, AL was taken. This family lived in the Pleasant
Grove Community of Limestone County, Alabama.
>From Census Records, Samuel said he was born in North Carolina, and both
his parents were born there, too. There was a William Cole who lived in
Lawrence County, Tennessee and a Thomas Cole who lived in Giles County,
Tennessee, both counties are nearby Lauderdale and Limestone Counties in Alabama.
Any help would be gratefully accepted.
