This family research project was formulated by Clarence Godfrey Sr with in mind raising the awareness levels of member of the Harris and Cole families. These families will be discussed in its entirety, as much as feasibly/possible, whereas other families will be discussed as these families relate to the Harris and Cole, a,i, Godfrey, Lewis, Millers, and Aldridge families. This family report may be a little unique in the sense that each family reflected may, or, may not, be blood relatives once you cross from one family line to the other. However, each family listed is worthy of mentioning regardless to the presence or absence of a of blood connections. Amongst the families shown the Harris', Cole's, and Millers may constitute a blood line whereas the Lewis's, Godfrey's and Aldridge's are mixed within a family set.
The formats and contents of this documents grew out of the mind of the writer who apologizes for the lack of information buthad to use what information he had access to and could validate. All information was taken from officials documents, Federal, State and Local Governments, Research Consultants and individual interviews from family members.
We apologize for being imperfect people, otherwise this document would be flawless. If you find in error, or errors, that, is, are, troublesome to you, please contact the author as soon as possible.That is to say let us know first.
The main purpose of this document is to provide some beginning or basic life structure to its author who at a later point in this document will pose the question, "Where did I originate?", that isfrom what country am I. A factor that must be considered and waited against is, information needed to validate many historical and other points will not be available until the next Census report is made available to the public which will be in the year 2012.
We have speculated on a few family history issues, having printed such in Italic for such time as the actual data is released an corrections can be made/included.
Any facts that are not validated will remain permanently in this document in BOLD PRINT.
Every precaution has been taken to avoid narratives, and/or pictures which suggest anything that may be of an unpleasant nature for any individual of family. Therefor, if there are some narratives which may be insulting/displeasing to you and we will attempt to make necessary modifications.
This document is not about certain families members and ends there. The author found it informative to include friends of the family as part of this document and still reserve the right to call this composition "Family History".
If at all possible this document will end with information concluded from DNA research. When may be a little difficult butwhere might be enlightening.
