Stunned by the fact that there is another Peter J Cotter attempting to research the Cotter family tree. Unfortunately I am only just strating and have very limited information, but would appreaciate any details that people have. My father is John William Cotter born 20/07/1939 in Tasmania His mother was Lorna Cotter.His father I am not sure of as the gfather I knew is supposedly his step-father Jack Cotter, who played Aussie Rules for Richmond. Dad remembers as a youngster growing up all over the country area of Melbourne, as his parents ran pubs, and spent some time in Ballarat, Bendigo, before settling in Geelong. Does any1 have any further details on this branch of the cotter name.
