Lora Fletcher Cole

Journal by irishgirlgreen

I'm looking for any information or connections to Lora Fletcher Cole. She lived in Kentucky and West Virginia later moving to Alger, Ohio and then to Burlington, Michigan. She was of Irish descent. I don't know her parents but think she had a sister names Vic and maybe one half brother. She married Taylor Cole in the 1920's.

Awesome! Thanks

Now that I've read things again, do you have thing farther back? Grandma says that Lora's parents were both Irish. Any confirmation, or dates of imigration from their parents? This is so much fun! I suddenly know more than any of my other relatives I think. I am very greatful!

Thank you for your pm. I was about to post a journal about your Fletchers.
Now old George was no slouch when it came to taking a wives and having children (65 pages of research notes) so instead, I've taken the easy way out and e-mailed you all the hints.
I only have one word to add 'DAUNTING'
Good luck irishgreengirl I don't suppose we'll be seeing you for awhile.

These are Spouses and children supposedly of George W Fletcher. I don't know how correct this all is. I found them on different trees. The only sources seem to be census records.
I think there are a few repeats, I've tried to put them in order.
as I said 'DAUNTING.
But with the notes and photos I've sent you perhaps you can make sense of it. I think I should warn you though there was more one George W Fletcher and some family members don't always check their data or seek out sources, just do the sheep walk.

I just found a george fletcher on a 1870 census. Listed with Squire Gipson and Pelina (fletcher) race "M". Does this mean malato?

by janilye on 2011-06-23 20:51:42

I sent you her history and documents. Squire GIBSON 1825-1899 was Paulina/Pelina Jane Fletcher nee Cole second husband. The George you see on that census is George Washington Fletcher 1862 1924 grandson of Alexander Fletcher 1816 1876 and ggrandson of George FLETCHER 1797-1860 and Louisa Dicey COLE 1801-1817.
