I am researching my TURNER and COLE ancestors and the families into which they married, which includes the surnames, BEEDLE, BENNETT, BLACK, CROSS, DAVIS, DYKES, FOX, HANEY, HAWKINS, MOTT, NAILLON, OWENBY, PENLAND, SPRING, WILSON, WOOD, and many others.

My Father was the Rev. James Isaac TURNER, 1891-1978, son of Jesse Millard Filmore ("Phil") TURNER, 1858-1932, and Margaret Levina BLACK, 1859-1938. Dad was born and raised in Del Rio, Cocke County, TN.

My Mother was Maude Ann COLE, 1895-1952, daughter of Hardy Smith COLE, 1865-1934, and Syreptia Fidella HANEY, 1870-1949. Mom was also born and raised in Del Rio, Cocke County, TN.

Some of these families were early settlers in east Tennessee, having migrated to Tennessee from North and South Carolina, Maryland and Virginia, while others, primarily my collateral relatives, settled in other states. Many of those who settled in Tennessee were located in Cocke, Greene, and Washington counties. The information I have on these ancestors varies from considerable to no more than their name.

I have recently started to do some research on my husband's family tree, which includes the surnames: WIGGLESWORTH, DODSON, DABNEY, and KEYES. I am also researching the families into which my siblings married, which includes the surnames BARHAM, HAISLIP, HARRIS, HULL, LINGERFELT, and WILKERSON. I have very little information, as yet, on most of these families, however, they appear to have all settled in either Tennessee or Virginia, and many of their descendants have remained there.

I would like to acknowledge and extend my heartfelt appreciation to my first cousin, Peggy (Cole) Coyne, who has done the majority of the research on our direct COLE line, and so generously shared, and for her help with the research on my TURNER line. I would also like to thank the many other "cousins" with whom I have corresponded and shared, for their help in compiling the database from which the genealogy reports on this site were created.

Published materials I have used includes three books by Robert W. Barnes: "Baltimore County Families, 1659-1759", "Maryland Marriages 1634-1777", and "British Roots of Maryland Families"; two books by Kathe Hager Hollingshous and Peggy Ann Silva Shumway: "The Cole Family of Maryland, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, and Arkansas", and "The Cole Family Allied Lines"; two books compiled by the Cocke Co., TN, Heritage Committee: "Cocke County, Tennessee, and It's People", and "More Reflections of Our Heritage"; "Over The Misty Blue Hills", by Ruth Webb O'Dell; "By the River and Beyond", by William Nathan Jones; "Adventures of Purse and Person VIRGINIA 1607-1624/5, Fourth Edition, 2004"; Two books by Hattie Caldwell Davis: "Reflections of Cataloochee Valley and Its Vanished People in the Great Smoky Mountains", and "Step Back in Time"; "Etta Granny Nichols: Last of the Old-Timey Midwives", by Sharon Smith-Ledford; "Early Families of Southern Maryland, Volume 10", by Elise Greenup Jourdan; "The Coale Family Nine Generations", Vols 1 & 2, by Willis B. Coale; "Early East Tennessee Marriages", Vols 1 & 2, by Byron & Barbara Sisler; "Tennesseans in The Civil War" Part 2, published by the Civil War Centennial Commission; "Baltimore County, Maryland Deed Records" Vols 1-4, by John Davis; "Baltimore County, Maryland Register of Wills" (5 Vols) abstracted by Leslie and Neil Keddie; Two books by Goldene Fillers Burgner: "Greene County, Tennessee Wills 1783-1890", and "Washington County, Tennessee Wills 1777-1882"; "Tennessee's First Setttlers and Soldiers" by Edward C. McAmis; plus others.

Member: National Society Daughters of The American Revolution, based on the service of my 3rd great-grandfather, Matthew Cole, of NC.

Visitors should keep in mind that the genealogy shown on this site is a "work in progress", and still contains information that, as yet, has not been properly documented. I would welcome any additional information and/or corrections.
