Hi Andrew

I am not sure if we have been in contact before. I have done extensive research on Simon Isaac Cole UEL (middle initial is an I, not a J), his son Isaac, then Richard (who came to Brighton/Codrington area in 1831) and his son Robert ( who is my great grandfather). I have written a chapter on each of these men and their families. I can email these to you if you provide your email address.

Also this past weekend was about the 138th consecutive Cole Picnic in Codrington. The next day, my brother drove my husband and me to the farms on Big Island in search of evidence of a Cole Cemetary. I believe I hit paydirt after a 12 year hunt, what remained of the cemetery was one tombstone that the family of the current owner of Isaac’s farm had stored under his bed for years. I will send photos via email too. Yet to I’d who the tombstone was for, person died at 19.

Love to share and find out where you are in the family tree.

I can give you access to my Cole Family Treeas well as our private Facebook page.
