Re: WILLIS COLE - Son of John Cole and Cuzzie Ande

Hello Sandra,
I have considered another possible way that story may have trickled through the family. If John Charles Cole was born in what was to become Buncombe County, North Carolina, as the information suggests around 1760, he may have been orphaned after a series of attacks on Cherokee villages that existed in or near Buncombe County by General Griffith Rutherford in 1776. John Charles Cole would have been a teenager. Of course Buncombe County wasn't designated until around 1790.
Perhaps a raid story associated with the father, John Charles Cole, was attached to the son, Ezekiel Cole. Don't know, something to consider. I'll leave a link for review. The excerpt is just one example of the attacks. I am not trying to say this is the actual attack chronicled in your family

"Cherokee Middle Towns
“X 58. Ellijay
On Ellijay Creek of Little Tennessee River near Franklin, NC
Rutherford's men came through in 1776 and encountered a group of elderly warriors trying to escape at a site called Indian Grave Gap. His men on horseback trampled 10 or 12 of them to death, including the chiefs Mankiller of Niquassi and Tistoe.”
