Thanks for letting me join your forum.
I am researching the family of Cole and Anderson. Any information would be helpful. I am trying to find information on a Ezekiel Cole Anderson. I have been told that he was a Cherokee Indian and that he was taken in by a man named Anderson. Would like to find the name of this Anderson. He was probally a Cole as a child. Would like to find information on his parents. Also would like any information that may prove that he was Indian and anything else about his childhood.
This is what I already have...
