Hi there .. I don't know how this relates to you but I note that Bessie Wright Cottonthe daughter of John Cotton and Frances Marvel marriedJonathan Irvin Chaffee. (There are many spellings). But they were both born in Massnot Miss. These are the only Cotton's mentioned in the Chaffee Genealogy book (1909).Jonathan was born in 1861.Maybe these Cottons are "cousins"?
