In Reply to: Re: HENRY COLE, Sr. IN WAKE COUNTY, NC by JMFuller of 1372

If I'm not mistaken, Henry's boy, George, didn't mention heirs in his will. Martin moved to S.C. as did Geo, I believe.

I've been trying for 20 yrs. to connect my 3gr grandfather to his Cole ancestors in NC to no avail.

Henry's line looks promising, but I'm good and stuck.

JM Fuller and whomever:

My relative's name was Martin Cole. He was b. <1800-1801> near Raleigh, NC. He said that his immigrants came here from Wales. His first born was George W. Cole. He had James R. Cole, Wm. Cole, Mary Ann Cole, and Frances Cole. Three out of a list of five children of Henry Sr's were named Martin, George, and Mary Ann. I believe Henry reared his children in Wake Co, NC....where Raleigh is.

Henry was a couple of generations back from my Martin, so I'm not suggesting he was my Martin's father...but the places and names certainly seek compatible. What do you think?

I posted to a descendant of Henry's, but she said that she believed it was all just a coincidence. All I know is Martin didn't just get dropped off near Raleigh by a stork. He had to come from some Mr. Cole and his wife who were living in or near Raleigh in 1800-1801 (his year being based on his age in census records). Were there any other Coles in that part of NC besides Henry and John's children and grandchildren?

My Martin did marry in 1826 in Orange Co, NC to Susannah M. Glenn.
