Cottrill, Elisha 44 farmer
Cottrill, Elizabeth 45

Cottrill, William 16
Cottrill, Martha 14

Cottrill, Lucana 8
Cottrill, John L 6 - This would be your John Louther
Cottrill, Frannces M. 2

I have a John G Cottrill next door who is my 2nd great grandfather. I think Elisha and John G are brothers and that the John and Elizabeth living with Elisha are their parents. Can't prove it yet, but looks real good at this point.

Amanda,
I believe Elisha to be a brother of John G Cottrell. But cannot prove it. Do you have a positive connection of these people as brothers? The only thing I have at this time is the 1850 Barbour County census.

Can you provide more?
Thanks,
Suzie

Surnames: Cottrill, Akert, Cottrell, Loper
I recently found these names on another site, and while the details are not exact, I was curious if you thought they might be related?
I found a Thomas Cottrell, b. 1766, Lewis, VA; d. 1823; m. 30 March 1791, Harrison, VA. to Catherine AKERT who was born 1770 in Harrison, VA.
My family line is supposed to be through their son James Cottrell b. 1796, Harrison, VA.; d. May 1896; and Deliah Loper, b. 13 April 1801, Harrison, VA., d. 10 Sep. 1896.
I have more, but I just thought I'd ask if these names rang any bells? It seems strange these two similar names and places, in particular, but I couldn't be sure just looking at it how, and if, they might be related.
Thanks for your help.
