Hello! Thanks for the info you posted on William Cotteral (2nd great grandfather). I've hit a roadblock on his parents, other than what your pointed others to in William's 1880 biography re: George W. and Rucy (Macy). I'm wondering if you've discovered anything else about either of them? As you know, even a smidgen of info can be a key in genealogy.

You posted a query about him. His census records indicated he was born in Indiana. His 1863 drafte registration shows that he was a merchant in Fall Creek Township, Henry County, IN, i.e. Middletown. He married Vorintha Eleanor Burr, daughter of Chauncey Hazelton Burr in Sulphur Springs, Henry County, near Middletown Nov. 24, 1854. So I believe that William W. Cotteral was born in Middletown. By the way, you csn find a nice biography of judge Cotteral at
