I, too, am looking for the Cottrell who had multiple children in NC. I'm hoping that a son was my g-g-g-grandfather, Dr. John B. Cottrell, b. 1806, m. Stacy P. Homberley. I have much Cottrell information to share from that point forward. Would love to know what you know about the Cottrell who had son John B. b. 1806 in NC.
