Sandra, I have been searching for his ancestors for 20 years with no results. I have eliminated all the Cottens in South Carolina except William Cotten and his sons in Greenville District. So far I have only the census on them. William David Cotten's mother was Sarah Walden, born in Georgia June 5, 1823 died abt 1870 in Attala County, MS. Thomas lived in Abbeville District, SC before moving to MS. Please contact me at Dickensgen@aol.com.

I am interesting in comparing notes on Cotton's. Both of my maternal grandparents where Cotton....My grandmother's father was John Burel Cotton from Attala Miss. His father was John Cotton born in S.C. My grandfather's father was Thomas Cotton from Attala Miss born in S.C. Do you recognize any of those names?

David Cotten and his wife Catherine Crowder lived in Abbeville Co., SC. Their son John was born in 1815 in SC and died in 1899 in Attala Co., MS. We have a descendant of John in our DNA project and his results show that he was related to a number of other Cottens whose lines go back to western Virginia and North Carolina. See "family 9" in the Cotton DNA project. http://www.skylinc.net/users/cottondna/

Thomas Cotten was born in 1820 when his mother was a widow living in South Carolina. We had a couple of his descendants in the project as well and their results proved that they were male line descendants of a man named Foster. There were five Foster families on the same census page as Catherine Cotten but there is no proof as far as I know as to which Foster was Thomas Cotten's father. Both of Thomas's descendants recently withdrew from the project so at present the family is not represented on the DNA website. If you know of a direct male line descendant of Thomas, we would be glad to have him join the project.
