Hello Erin Bradford,
I have been busy in the African-Native American Forum of Afrigeneas trying to locate the history of one Ezekiel Cole Anderson.
I have a theory that Ezekiel Cole Anderson was the son of John Charles Cole and Cuzzie Anderson of Buncombe County, North Carolina born around 1791, died in 1851 in Cass County, Michigan. Part of my theory hinges on the possibility that Ezekiel Cole Anderson was indentured to a relative of Cuzzie Anderson when he was 12 years old and that relative brought him to Crawford County, Illinois sometime before 1815. I also believe one of those relatives was killed outside Fort Allison, Illinois by Native Americans prior to 1815. My question is a two parter, First part is if you can tell more about the Lewis Anderson you are researching? The other is if you can find any records of indenture of any of John Charles Cole or Cuzzie Anderson's children, especially Ezekiel Cole?
