Re: Blair Underwood ancestry- SCOTT/HUMBLE


Just on the off-chance that you or someone else is researching their free Scott ancestors, my research might help in connecting us. My ggggrandfather, Robert Cole, had 2 brothers and all were free in the 1770s living in Mecklenburg, VA. A sister, Nelly (Ellen/Eleanor) Cole, I believe is the one on the 1850, 70 yrs of age, living with Sophia, Mildred, Ellen, and Sarah Scott, all free black women, living in Alexandria, Arlington County, VA (the Scotts are likely Nelly's daughter and granddaughters). The Coles were children of the free black Robert Cole and Lucy Chavis Cole and I believe that Nelly eventually returned to Dumphries, VA. where her possible nephews Henry (he married Elizabeth Bates) and Thomas Cole appear on the 1850 census. If any of this sounds familiar, I would love to hear from you.
