Possibly born in Grayson Co, Va in July or June 1854. Married Belle Gibbs in 1885 in Menifee Co, Ky. Dont have his parents names. Could possibly be Ramsey Cole and Patsy Gamble. I am at a dead end here. Have been searching for years.

Need to find birthplace and parents of grandfather, James Martin Cole. Married Belle Gibbs in Menifee Co, Kentucky around 1885. Census shows birth in Virginia and North Carolina.
My search for my ancestors has been a long one. My father's mother was Clara STOERIG, b. in Cincinnati, Ohio on 11 Aug 1871. She had 1 daughter, Augusta Clara, b July 1900 and d 2 Feb 1904. I do not know the cause of her death. She had a son George B COX b 26 Dec 1901 who lived until 2 Feb 1964. He died in Valles SLP, Mexico. George COX was my father.
I am looking for his grandparents Anton STOERIG b 23 Aug 1844 in Oldenburg, Germany and his wife Christine WALTERS b 1844/45 in Elbergen, Hannover, Germany. I have learned that Anton immigrated in 1865. I do not know when Christine immigrated, but they were married on 3 May, 1870. Christine died on 25 May, 1882. I have no other information on Christine except the name of William Walters, shown as a witness on her marriage record. Perhaps he was a brother or father. I cannot find any census records for William. Anton's parents were Henry Joseph STOERIG and Elizabeth KENKEL. Elizabeth is shown in census and city directories and died around 1890. I continue to search, but cannot find further information.
I have not found any other researcher for the STOERIG line. I am so glad to find what I have found but there is so much to learn. I hope someone can help.
Thsnk you Stephanie Combs
