|Hello, there all ye Cottrell, Cottrill, Cotterel, etc. relates.|
My name is Linda L. Cottrell/Liss and have been researching my Cottrell family for about 25 years.I descend by way of Thomas Cottrell, Sr. b. about 1770,who married Mary "Polly" O'Brien; Silas Cottrell,who married Sabra (Sarah) Cox; William Perry Cottrell, whose 2nd wife was Mary "Polly" Truman; Wm. Philip Cottrell who married Mary Louise Jarvis and my father,Hobert Lee Cottrell, whose 2nd wife was Ada Belle Duffield, all West Virginia folk.I actually have three Jarvis lines, two maternal & one paternal.The above Mary Louise Jarvis' ancestors include: Her father, Caleb Jarvis; grand-father, Solomon Jarvis; Gt grandfather, John & Sarah Jarvis, Lewis Co., WV (VA); and his parents were John and Hannah Hill Jarvis.My mother, Ada Belle, listed above descends (Maternal line)from a brother of the Solomon Jarvis.His name was Thomas F. Jarvis; Alfred H. Jarvis, Thomas Henderson Jarvis, and my maternal grandparents Rebecca Frances Jarvis, who married Wm. Fleet Duffield.My mother's (Paternal line), descends through another brother of Thomas & Solomon, that being James Jarvis who married Mary "Polly" Burkhammer. Line: James, Milly, Eliza Jane, William Fleet Duffield, the same who married the above Rebecca Frances Jarvis.
There are also many other Jarvis's, Truman, Duffield, & Cox's.
Would love to hear from anyone working on any of these names, or, for that matter, any other West Virginia ancestors.
Perhaps I could help you too.
