In Response To: Re: Father's Birthplace ()
Ron, thanks a lot, I do have very strong evidence to support that Thomas Cole and Henry Cole were brothers, and Paul's research has enabled me to connect the two of them to Robert Cole/Mary Stewart; Robert Cole Sr. and Lucy Chavis. The narrative in Paul's book starts with Benedict Cole who was a "Baptized" Slave which means he may have been baptized in Africa before being brought to America. Now I am going to send for the records referenced in Paul's book so I can have them on hand. I really appreciate you and everyone of the professionals on hand at this forum!
