Surname Saturday: COTTER, Ga. to La.

Cotter/Pate/Young home, Bienville Parish, La., c. 1959.  Photo by M. Hall, privately held by the Hall family, La.  Built in the mid-1800s, with an addition built c. 1904, it was the home to three generations of Cotter descendants.  The house was located on Hwy. 7, about 3-4 miles south of Ringgold, La., but sadly, no longer exists.

Today we have my COTTER line from my maternal great-grandmother. Corrections, additions, and questions welcomed; this is a work in progress. Numbers refer to ahnentafel (pedigree chart) numbering. Sources available; see my blog for contact info.

(My direct line is in bold; spouses are in bold italic.)
