Mozelle Brindle and Gus Cole Wedding Day

Mozelle Brindle and Gus Cole Wedding Day

It is said  that he was Indian...? I don't know if any credence...He did have dark skin, was small.  Most of his children had very dark eyes and hair like him...lovely children...his wife was blue eyed, but the dark brown eyes usually took precedence. He was always "Gus".

I don't know if perhaps some of the last generations of this family are still alive.  This info came from Rootsweb accounts, Family Research at LDS and other census accounts.
This is a work in progress,  Corrections and additions are welcome.
