Cottrell/Cotrell, circa 1855 Parker County

I am trying to find the parents of several Cottrells (alternative spelling Cotrell), who were probably born in Parker County, between 1855 and 1860. My great grandfather was Martin G. Cottrell, who married Mattie H. Johnson in Parker County in 1874. His sister was Mary E. Cottrell, who married John H. Green in Parker County on January 4, 1883. I believe there were other siblings, George, Margaret and Arley.

I'm reasonably confident the father's name was George W. The mother is listed on Martin's death certificate as Eliza Baker; George W.'s wife is on the 1880 Parker County census as Dottie L. (could be a second wife, could be a name error).

Ring any bells with anyone?
