Does anyone have access to the cemetery records for Prescott? I am searching for records of the COTTER and DARCY families who are buried in the cemetery at Prescott, Pierce County, WI. They would probably be buried in the Catholic cemetery. All of the burials by these names would be part of the same family.

In that book is a genealogy of the Cotter family starting with Thomas and Bridget Sullivan Cotter from Ireland. If you wish to contact her, please send me your address and phone number. I will ask her to contact you.

Hi, I have a John (1907-1982) and Lillian (nee Norris) Cotter in my line. Are these the same people?

There is a John E. and Linda M. Cotter buried at St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery at Prescott, Wisconsin. Would these be the people you are referring to? I haven't connected them yet to the rest of the Cotter family.

Sheri - Thank you so much. The dates look like they match for my family line. In your 2002 post you mention an aunt that wrote a history with the Cotter family in it. Can she still be contacted or can that book be purchased?

I believe the book is still available. Contact Mary Beeler, 474 Dakota St. South, Prescott, WI 54021. Mary is a Cotter by birth, so she may also be able to answer your questions. If the book is no longer available let me know and I can supply a copy of what you are looking for.
