I am a descendent in this line and want to network with other descendents.
Our ancestry goes back to Rev. John Cotton who sailed from England in 1633 on "The Griffin" to Boston to escape being imprisioned by Archbishop William Laud and Charles I of England.Capt. Joshua T. Cotton's mother was a Little and the Little line goes back to Thomas Little who married Anna Warren, daughther of Mayflower passgenger Richard Warren.
A complete family tree/genealogy is being worked on and descendents of this line are asked to please contact:
