John H. Cottrell b. 1865 Richmond, Henrico Co VA
Would like to know if this man had any children.I cannot find him on a census as a single or married person.
Birth records state: born Oct 5, 1865 Richmond, Henrico Co VA to R.H. Cottrell and his wife Mary R.
Virginia death records info: John Cottrell d. Jan 7, 1895 in Richmond VA, occupation is carpenter, white, single, age 29.
On the Find A Grave website: Shockoe Hill Cemetery, Richmond VA, John H. Cottrell 1865 - 1895 and Annie Boyle Cottrell 1868 - 1895.There is one tombstone with these two names.
Death record for Annie Boyle Cottrell states: Mrs. A.B. Cottrell, born 1868, white, widowed, d. Aug. 6, 1895 Richmond VA, age 27, occupation is needlewoman.
Annie Boyle Cottrell's brother is also buried in Shockoe Hill Cemetery.
I think there is an error in John's death record listing him as single.
Any clues would be helpful.
