My grandmother (I never met) maiden name was Cole. Her mother married James Cole of Ireland and he drowned in the Bay of Fundy off the coast of Nova Scotia around 1900. I have his folks names - the whole family came over from Ireland. Any good sites to help determine who his folks were? James Cole left four little children and they were all split up to be cared for by others. Very sad. I want to learn what I can about him and his family. Any help? Father Dermot Cole, mother Julia or Judith McIlroy or McAlroy both born about 1832. Thanks to all and best wishes to everyone.
Have a grandfather by the name of an Anthony Cole. He was married to Hilga Eklund. The only reference to his parents are that they were L. Cole and E. Redd. The child (son) of Anthony and Hilga lived in Montana, but i do not know if this is where L. & E. Cole lived. Would really love someone to point me in the right direction to find more of the family origin, and how to find out who L. Cole and E. Redd were. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The name Cole originates from Cornwall. It is a Celtic name and has nothing to do with the Danes or Anglo Saxons.

jesica was a interesting comment you just mentioned my whole name
My grandfather was Claude Cole married Maude Thomas both from Ireland. Claude died very young at the age of 43 and left 11 kids and a pregnant wife. Very sad
They lived in Rice Lake Wisconsin or Cameron WI not sure where or how they met. It may have been Utah? My grandfathers family disowned him when he married my grandmother Maude because she was beneath him? She had a rough life and struggled with many hard ships with 12 children to raise on her own. Claude was a Baptist Minister when he passed. Would love to find any family related to my grandparents. My dad was Wayne Glen Cole
Claude Cole born in 1892 in S. Dakota my grandfather. Wayne Glen Cole was my Father. Claude died at an early age of 43 leaving 11children and a pregnant wife (Maude Thomas) behind. I was told we were Irish but we think The family originated in England.
We don't have any history of Grandpa's family and would love to learn any good news
I believe my grandparents met in USA (Utah) they settled in Cameron Wisconsin.
My dad (Wayne Glen Cole) lived many of his years in Milwaukee WI.
Grandpa Claude Cole was a Lutheran Minister at time of death.
Any information on the Claude Cole family history would be deeply appreciated.
It's amazing, the Cole last name...strong, so English. My father passed on, he was Sr. I was told Cole came from different regions. It's English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, and probably more... Like Heinz 57. Little bit of everything. Be proud of who you are regardless if your name is...fill in the name.
I often wonder if somehow we can turn back time. Ask all of our relatives, if they could look into the future...go to America, or stay home to England. I myself often wondered how different our lives would be if our families never migrated. Something to think about. Peace to ALL Cole's young and old.

I'm a Cole, my family in America is from the Alabama area. I really don't know where the Cole's are from. Some I'm mixed with Irish, Native American Indian, Black, and I think English. Maybe someone can help.

Mother's maiden name is Cole.
I come from a long line of Welsh Cole . it is an old Celtic name and was around before the doomsday book 1086. So a true Briton name not English as English wasnt even thought of before the Normans came. . old king Khol is a derivative of the name and is the fabled king of the Britons. Also the Irish king of McCool .
