I am researching John M Cotton & Nancy J. Thomas family. They had a daughter Ada born 2 Feb 1888 and married Jefferson Davis Mitchell 1908. I have a bit of info collected willing to share, looking for the name of John M's grandfather? I know his dad was James L, I am thinking it was William and Martha, but not sure. Also looking for James Cotton wife's name, maybe Haddie? James was born in 1825 Louisiana.
