Ellen COURTOIS/COOTWARE of Vermont/Plattsburgh NY
I am trying to determine if there is a link between my ancestor, Ellen Cootware/Courtois, and the Courtois/Cootware clan discussed on this forum.Ellen is my G.G. Grandmother.Note, I have also posted this note to the Cootware Family forum.
According to family records, Ellen Cootware was born in Vermont, and married Henry P. Myers. Their first son, Mose Phillip Myers was born in 1869 in Plattsburgh, Clinton Co., NY., where they lived for a while before moving to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.Henry P. is buried in the Felch Cemetary, Dickinson Co, Michigan (Upper Peninsula).Family stories have it that Henry was born in Luxemborg, and sailed from La Harve, France to Plattsburgh. We also have a note that Ellen Cootware had a brother Joseph Bin, born in 1846, who served in the Civil War, N.Y. Volunteers Calvary.
I would appreciate any help in finding a connection, or in suggesting further leads to track down.
