Eli Cole, age 60; Hester, age 57; and Elizabeth, age 31, are on the 1850 Lincoln Co. TN census. Eli was born in NC, Hester in SC, and Elizabeth in TN. Eli was a farmer with the value of his real estate put at $6000.oo. He lived next to John Cole [age 37] and family and Marcus Cole [age 44] and family. The two younger men were born in KY. If you have any more info, I would sure appreciate it. I am thinking Marcus' daughter, Mary, could be my ggg-grandmother who married the tenant farmer on the Cole land, Drury Wheeler.
