Hi James--My record show the parents of Robert Cole (married 31 Dec 1789 Nancy Carter) was the son of James Cole and Lucy Petty. I have no record on Lucy Petty's Parents. James Cole was the son of John Cole and Ann Livingstone. This John Cole was the son of James Cole (of Middlesex Co., Va) and Sarah ___, married ca, 1717, d.- 23 Sep 1723. Most of my information is from Joe Cole (died 1997)who lived in Halifax Co., Va, Rt 1, Box 191, Vernon Hill, Va 24597. I am also searching for information on Ann Livingstone's parents and siblings. My Cole genealogy is given in my web site .--Reg Vassar.
