you corresponded with my husband Kent earlier today. You've captured
our imagination and we think we have some information and maybe
connections to add to the US family tree.
Charles Coules (from
Brighton England in our records) married to Margaret Witzel. We
think this must be the same Charles as Jim has on his family tree but
Kent's Great Grandfather did not have a son named James. His children were:
-Victor married to
Mary (don't know the last name). He was an artist. He
had at least 3 children but we don't know their names.
-Edith married 3
times!!! First husband was Elmo Lincoln (the first Tarzan), 2nd husband
was a movie director & producer whose name we don't know. Third
husband was Barney (trying to find his last name). No children.
-Charles (don't know
anything about him)
-Paul married to Ruth
Helms. He had three sons:
Robert married to Susan with one son Chuck. Chuck has three
daughters; later married to Muriel
Richard (8/30/1926 to 1990) married to Doreen Lange (sitting here
next to me and providing all this info) He had two sons:
- Scott Paul Coules (2/2/57 to ?) married to Verna Harris. He
has two daughters: Apryl Michelle (1980) and Nichole Marie (1983)
- Kent Lange Coules (4/8/60) married to Ruth McClain (me). We have
three daughters: Savannah Richelle Momi (1991) Alexa Kanoe (1993)
and Ryann Noelani (1999) Yes they have Hawaiian blood.
We can look up more
dates if you like. Doreen also has several family photos.
Paul we are wondering
if you think "our Charles" is the same I found in the Margate
portion of the British family tree (which you say includes Brighton).
On there he was born in 1861 which seems like the right timing.
This has been lots of
fun. Thanks for writing. We'd love to hear from you or any
Ruth Coules (and
Doreen & Savannah)
