The Westalls/Coles of North Carolina Updated March 7, 2001
About Our Family Research
I am trying to research my paternal grandfather's history,particulary his Mom's, Lula Cole.They lived in Weaverville, N.C. and later my Grandfather moved about thirty miles to Asheville. MY great grandfather's name was William Westall, and his wife was Lula Cole. I know that Lula's parent's were Thomas Cole and Anne Jones. And Thomas Coles Dad was Matthew Cole. We think Matthew Cole migrated from Germany, but we aren't sure. We think he may have been Jewish, and the Cole might have been Kohl.This is the main reason I am trying to research. Matthew Cole would have been born about 1850. Thomas would have been born about 1880. And I know that my grandfater was born July 4th, 1899.
