      Hi Linda,
      I have two questions I hope you can help me out with.

      I have Robert Cole, Jr., died bef April 30, 1695, married Anne Warren, d/o John Warren, b ca 1616, and when he died he was married to Rebecca Kirkley.

      Is this the Robert Cole, Jr., you say married Anne Greenwell?

      Would you know anything regarding the Anne Norris that married Richard Nevitt, the Immigrant?

      Thanks for any help you can offer,
      Shirley Anne Stinson [SMTP:


      Robert Cole, Jr., d. bef. 4/30/1695 m. Anne Warren and then Rebecca Kirkley
      as you stated. He was the son of Robert Cole, the immigrant.

      Robert Cole, Jr., son of Robert Cole (son of Edward Cole and wife Honor) and Elizabeth Tant, is the one who married Anne Greenwell.
