No posts yet in this forum? Surely there has to be someone besides me looking for Cotterell family information. So I will go first. Here is what I think I know:

1) John Henry Cotterell (b. ca 1755 in VA or SC - d. 1801 in Chester County, SC)

m. Sarah Cox (b. ca 1755 in Camden District, SC - d. bef 1820 in Hart/Hardin County, KY) ca 1775

5 children - Henry (b. 1775), John Wesley (b.1788), Nathan, Joshua, Sally

2) Henry Cotterell (b. 1775 in Chester County, SC - d. bef 1860 in Hart County, KY)

m. Mary Murray (b. 1776 in VA - d. 1860 in Hart County, KY) 1797 in Chester County, SC

9 (?) children - Elizabeth (b. 1798), Nathan (b. 1800), Joshua (b. 1808), James (b. 1810), Mary (b. 1814), Cornelius, Silas, Henry, Abraham

Henry and Mary moved from Chester County, SC to Hardin County, KY after 1800, but before 1808

2) John Wesley Cotterell (b. 1788 in Chester County, SC - d. 1855 in Richland County, IL)

m. Mary Utterback July, 1812 in Hardin County, KY

3) Joshua Cotterell (b. 1808 in Hardin County, KY - d. 1850 in Richland County, IL)

m. Wilmuth Owen Peebles (b. 1809 in Hardin County, KY - d. aft 1875 in Richland County, IL) 1827 in Hart County, KY

1 daughter - Nancy (b. 1827) more?

4) Nancy Cotterell (b. 1827 in Hart County, KY)

m. George Boatman (b. March 1, 1823 in Columbiana County, OH - d. 1884 in Richland County, IL) May 29, 1855 in Richland County, IL

6 children - James William (b. 1856), Jemima K. (b. 1859), Mary M. (b. 1862), Eliza J. (b. 1864), Nancy K. (b. 1867), Solomon J. (b. 1873?)

5) Jemima K. (Kate) Boatman (b. 1859 in Richland County, IL)

m. William Foreman (b. 1858 in IL) June 10, 1879 in Richland County, IL

1 daughter - Laura (b. 1876) more?

6) Laura Foreman (b. 1879 in Albion, IL)

m. Charles Russell Leet (b. Feb 20, 1869 in Wabash County, IL - d. Sep 17, 1955)

Charles and Laura (Foreman) Leet are my great-grandparents.

Additions and corrections are appreciated.

I am still looking for the parents and ancestors of John Henry Cotterell, Sarah Cox, and Mary Murray. I do have some additional information on the Peebles, Foreman, Boatman, and Leet families if case there are any cousins out there.
