William Franklin Cottrell is truly the son of Jesse James and Minervia Luvenia Cottrell. However, his ancestry is through William David Cottrell and Mary Ann Hood Cottrell, his grandparents, who arrived in America from England via port of Mobile in 1852. There is no link to Cottrells in Ohio, unless it is in England and therefore virtually unknown.
My dad attended a Cottrell family reunion in 1942. William Franklin "Bill" Cottrell led the congregational singing for the event. My grandmother, Sarah Anne Cottrell Polk, was a first cousin to William Franklin. This family history is confirmed by Union Co. Census Records, as well as Immigration records from Mobile.
If you are interested, I can provide extensive data concerning the Cottrells of Union Co., AR
Saline Co., AR
