I can't believe the progress that I've been able to make in tracking
this line with the help of many, many people on about four lists and
some private correspondence. This Colson family started out in
VA>NC>(SC)>GA (some to FL). There the collateral lines increased and
included BEVILLE, DAVIS, SHEPPARD, HODGES, & SHARPE. I would
appreciate corrections or additions to this family.
