The descendant matches the Hatcher family participants
on 25/25 markers in the Haplogroup R1b.

There are no docouments to show that Martha Hatcher was
a widow but who knows due to the fires that happened
in New Kent County, VA.

I know that there is always a possiblity of a "random"


match with someone that has a different surname but in
this case I have Hatcher families living near Cottrell
families from at least 1700 through 1835.

To me it looks like there was a case of infidelity or


undocumented adoption. Has anyone else ran into this
type of scenario?

Richard,
I got the information from Stella Cotrill off of this website (Genealogy Forum). There are some parts that seem really grey to me, and even she admits it may not be 100% accurate. If I follow this correctly the paternal line is:

11. JAMES COTTRILL,JR. (JAMES4, THOMAS3, THOMAS2, RICHARD1) was born 1770 in Albemarle County, Virginia, and died Abt. 1840 in Virginia. He married SUSANNA 'SUSAN' TYREE Abt. July 1797 in Virginia. She was born Abt. 1781 in Albemarle County, Virginia, and died in Virginia.


Notes for JAMES COTTRILL,JR.:
James Cotteral is noted in "A History of Ross and Highland Counties" as being a resident of
Franklin Township in Ross County, Ohio in 1819. This area today would be Richmondale, Ohio.
This information was written down by Amanda Higby while keeping a record of the area's residents.
It is not known if James was there prior to 1819 or if that is the year he arrived in Ross County.

The 1820 Census of Jackson Township in Pike County, Ohio lists James Cottrel's household as having 4 free white males. 1 under 10, 1 of 10 and under 16, 1 of 16 and under 26, and 1 of 45 and up.


This would indicate that he had three sons and he was at least 45 years old in 1820.
Also, the 1820 census lists 7 free white females. 1 under 10, 2 of 10 and under 16, 3 of 16 and under 26, and 1 of 26 and under 45. This would indicate he had 6 daughters and his wife was 26 to 45 years old.
Finally, this record indicates 3 foreigners not naturalized.
This could indicate that James and his wife along with their oldest child are the original immigrants of the Coterel line. Since their oldest child is under 26 years old, it is possible they immigrated to the United States circa 1795.
However, the 1880 census lists Harrison Coterell's mother's and father's place of birth as being
North Carolina and there is a James Cottral on the 1800 census index of North Carolina.

The 1830 Census of Jackson Township in Pike County lists James Cotterel and Benjamin Cotterel.


Benjamin is of 30 and under 40 years old. He is in the same age group as James' oldest son and is
more than likely his son. The 1830 census for James Cotterel still lists 1 free white male of 15 and under 20 and lists his age as being of 60 and under 70. Also, there is 1 free white female of 15 and under 20 and 1 free white female of 40 and under 50. This indicates that he has a son and a daughter living with him and his wife. It is possible that his other son might have perished in the prior 10 years and that that his other 5 daughters have married or passed away. There are no other Coterel variants listed in the census for Pike or Ross Counties.

The 1840 census of Jackson Township in Pike County, Ohio lists both Benjamin and James Cottrel.


By this time James is 70 and under 80 and his wife is 60 and under 70.
A Tyra Cottrel appears 10 names after theirs and he is 20 and under 30.
This would be consistent with the age of James' youngest son. One complication occurs on this census.
Lewis Cotterel appears on the page before James, Benjamin, and Tyra.
He is 30 and under 40 and that would put him in the same age group as James' middle son.
However, one would have to ask why he is not on the 1830 cesus.

According to the book "Amherst County, Virginia, in the Revolution" on June 9, 1841 in Pike County Ohio, a James Cotrell applied for Revolutionary War Pension. He claimed he was born on Oct 14, 1748. Also, he claimed he served in the summer of 1776 as a private under Capt. Sale to guard deserters from Amherst Court House to Williamsburg and that he was discharged after 6 weeks; then Sept 1,1777 he served 1 month under Capt John Dawson and Col Taylor; Jan 1781 under Capt Richard Ballenger, Lt Thomas Jones, John Mathews, Ensign; Vol 1782 under Capt John Sale. His claim was rejected as he failed to furnish proof of 6 months of service.
