Looking for any relation to ALBERT THEODORE COLE SR. b. 1905 in Boils, Jefferson, Alabama (AL), d. 1 November 1956. Due to recent discoveries, I think his father ROBERT THOMAS COLE d. 1909, md. 20 June 1904 SUDIE Elizabeth McCLURG in Jefferson, Alabama (AL)had 2 sons: Albert Theodore Cole Sr. and THOMAS OLIVER COLE a.k.a. “Buddie” (?). Also looking for a connection to ONO MAY COLE and LINDA COLE.
We know that Sudie re-married [possibly after Robert’s death] to John Henry Vann 17 June 1910 in Wylam, Alabama (AL). They had 4 children: Grayce Katherine VANN [b. 10 Jun 1912 d. 23 Nov 1975 md. William Clement Hill 06 Oct 1928], Theodore Houston VANN [b. 23 Dec 1914, md. Pearl Bartley 03 Feb 1934], MAJOR LEE VANN [b. 25 Jun 1918 md. Madeline Thompson 23 Aug 1940], and John Henry Vann Jr. [b.06 May 1923 d. 03 Nov 1926].
I am looking for ANY possibly relation to Major Lee Vann, I remember my father, Albert Theodore Cole Jr. going fishing with him in Alabama (before I was born in 1963).
Also, Thomas Oliver Cole [or Oliver Thomas Cole?] a.k.a. “Buddie” was a name overheard in conversation between my grandmother [“Granny”/ Razzia] and father, Albert Theodore Cole Jr. But no details. Their conversations were very guarded and cryptic. As if he died in an accident? WW 2? Some sort of family falling out?
ANY information would be greatly appreciated! Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Posted for Robert Thomas Cole, my husband.
