Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in the same hospital my father was, in Springfield, Missouri. My family roots run deep in American history, most recently (last nearly 200 years) in Missouri.

Several cemeteries in Missouri are on land once owned, and then donated, by my ancestors. Wynn Cemetery, Binkley Cemetery, Cemetery No. 5, & Wolf Creek Cemetery are among them in SW Missouri.

My late parents left me their nearly 5 decade long genealogy project to continue. has been invaluable help with this.

RE: Cottles in Troy
Yes, Nell says she would very much like to know more about the Cottles. I don't know all the dates, etc. she recalls her family visiting "Uncle Henry" Cottle from her young days. He died in 1955 and we had been married in 1952, just out of Baylor Univ..

RE: Cottles in Troy
My wife's Cottle line is:

Joseph Cottle
Leander Frederick Trent Cottle
Leander Criswell Cottle
Candace Cottle
Henry F. Gilbreath
Nelma Gilbreath. My wife.

I have a Silvanus Cottle name only for Joseph's father.

Who is your common ancestor and what is your line from him? I'm trying to get your relationship to my wife.

RE: Cottles in Troy
Wow, you have really researched the Cottles! Candace Cottle in Texas married Charles Gilbreath. I have visited her grave and have photos of it. My wife was a Gilbreath from Amarillo, TX. We now live in Ballwin, MO about 10-15 miles southeast of Cottlesville.

RE: Cottles in Troy
Thanks Debbie.

Go to FindAGrave Memorial# 15583538 to see the graves of the early Texas Cottles. Read the marker in the photo that I added. I have lots of other photos taken by my brother. He lives just a few miles from the cemetery and rode his bike out there to get them for me.

Cottles in Troy
Debbie, are you related to any of the Cottles who settled in Troy, MO? There were a few of them that moved on to Texas, near Smithville, TX. My wife's grandmother was descended from those Cottles. We were transferred from Texas to the St. Louis area and I have been intending to run up to Troy to visit the cemetery there and see her ancestor' starves there.

RE: Elizabeth McClellan

I'm sure we have communicated before. I'm sure you recognize the names Inglis, Coday and Schuldt.

John Henry's older sister Martha S. McClellan was my 2nd great grandmother

Thanks for the info and reminders on links for this memorial. The links have been made per your suggestions.
Her parents are also my 3rd gr grandparents. I guess that makes us something like 4th cousins.

Lorenzo Cottle
Hello - thanks for all you have done and are doing. I am writing because I would love to know of the documentation for Fulton as the middle name of Lorenzo Cottle. I have done Cottle genealogy for forty years and have never seen this before. I am the Historian for Mayflower Society in Delaware. If you are not a member of Mayflower Society, in line of descent from Warren or John Cottle, I can help you with that.
