Thank you!!!! Now, how do I find out when CCC died? Who do I contact regarding the land and probate records?I just don't know the proceedures of genealogy and I want to do things in the right way. Also, on Emma Carlton, James B. was her father and was killed in the war and Jackson Cogburn and his wife Martha raised James's children, Emma and Trojan. Jackson was my ggg grandfather.I have some info on the Carlton/Cogburn side, but essentially nothing on the Coates, except for what you have provided.I am so grateful.Thanks again.
