The Marietta Cole Family
I was unsure of Nick's first name. Before I ran a similar article as above I emailed my friend Davis McCollum and asked him Cole's first name. Davis is a Mariettan historian and knows everybody. He told me had to think and he'll get back with me. Shortly, he replied, "Steve". I used the first name of Steve.
Mary Ansley Southerland quickly informed me his name was not Steve, it is Nick.
Davis McCollum said "My bad!" And I told him to think nothing of it, I am badder.
Other people, like Debbie Varner and Vickie Turner Hunt wanted to know more about the Cole House on the corner of Cole Street and the North Marietta Parkway (formerly Page Street) which Davis answered the questions.
Then, less than 30 minutes later I was sitting at the dog park telling John Burgan the episode of the name mix-up. And he said the Coles had a huge fallen tree in front of their house and John wanted that tree to make some furniture, which Nick agreed to, with the stipulation that John make some things for him, like an end table, and a few of his friends. He said it was a prime rare type of cedar. It was Western Cedar. There are only 5 of these trees in either the East or Georgia, I forgot which. That type of tree is more plentiful on the northwest coast.
I remember that downed huge tree in the Cole House's front yard.
Again, it is a small world.
John said he has his business card, which he showed me. Nick is a photographer in Dallas.
And his first name is Nicolas.
