Coile Family Genealogy Forum
I am trying to find out more information about my Great-Grandfather Andrew Coiley.
He was born into slavery in Kitchings Mills, South Carolina in 1842 to an Irish Sharecropper...and his mother was half Cherokee and married to a man with the last name Brodie. He was in the Civil War, and after the war he relocated to Milford, Ohio, and then Onarga, Illinois, then Chicago, and Glen Ellyn, IL---eventually ending up in Wheaton,Il. If anyone has any information, please contact me.
