Surnames: Halverson, Cotter, French
We've reached the Brick Wall! Anna Rosetta Halverson French, our 3rd great grandmother (1794-1828) was born in Philadelphia. Her parents are more elusive. We know her mother was Hanna Cotter a widow when she married a James or Frederick Halverson, a mariner ~1790 in Philadelphia. We know she was a high end dressmaker by a business directory listing. Mr. Halverson is not alive in 1810, she is listed with her daughters in the census as a widow. We have no birth surname or even country for her. (possibly Ireland or Scotland) Her first husband, Edmund Cotter, died in 1785, after 2 years married. If anyone has a connection or more information, we would love to share!
