I am looking for information aboout Saraheffie's parents. Her daddy's name was Richard, right now I don't remember her momma's name. Family lore has it that Sarah was a full blood Cherokee as were her parents. Sarah was born in 1871.
Sarah married Henry Denmeade Cole, he was a widower with 4 or 5 children. He was 20 years her senior. She was 19 or 20 when she married him. She had 4 or 5 children, died in childbirth. My grandmother Mary Lillian (Cole) Welsh was her oldest child. She had 1 sister, Katherine and three brothers, Ernest, William, {sorry-brain drain - ...Can't think of remaining brother.
Would like to know about her parents and grandparents. Did she have any siblings? Would appreciate any help. This has been my "brick wall". Sarah was a very private person, she was very pretty, but would not allow anyone to take her picture. Would like to know Sarah's full story.
Thanks for any help! Fay Schneider
