First-hand information. Entered by Jason Cottrell at registration.


Grandparents are Cottrell, Morris, Croft and Grant. I have entered details for my direct ancestors to complete my 'compact tree' to the extent there is reliable information to date.

I also research my wife's family tree. Her grandparents are Lynch, Cullen, Burke and Bonner.

I have uploaded my wife's family tree as there are elements of this I am missing (largely due to the lack of Irish records in the 1800s).

Leader of the Donegal sub-project of the Irish Roots programme.

I have Cotrell family of Tennessee, USA and hope we may have a connection. I am listing some of my Cottrell family information for your review:

Lottie Cottrall (Charlotte Jane is her full first names) b. 1825– d.1894. Female Husband Thomas O. Smith. Family history has this: !Came from England in 1785. Charlotte Jane Cottrell, daughter of Bill Cottrell (who was a brother of Dow Cottrell), born in Virginia about the year 1805. Her father came from England in 1785. Her mother was a Miss ____________ Wood of Virginia. Her grandfather moved to Perry County, Tennessee and settled on Lick Creek. If you see anything to connect then please let me know? Thank you for your time on this as I have hit a brick wall on England line of Cottrell family. t. Gentry- Calif. , USA. 5.20.2018

Hey Jason,

Thanks for the note on this profile, William Templeton, about adding a town land for him in Donegal. I'll look at the Sources for him and see if I can find one. NONE of my Templetons (County Antrim) have town lands because we don't know where the came from other than the county. I would be a family hero if I were to determine that. lol

John Rover's birth date is listed in the family book as 3 different times. His tombstone date, which gives his age at death is also questionable. So using the Rover Genealogy book I went with 1810 ,not scientific but John and Ann's dates were all messed up and all over the place. Carolyn

Hi Jason

Thanks for the comment on Thomson v Thompson on the profile of Helen Proudfoot Violet Thompson. She signed herself Thomson on her marriage certificate but I've now retrieved her birth certificate and see that she is registered as Thompson so I've changed it.

I'm (slowly) trying to improve my profiles so any other contributions are welcome!

Thanks Anne Johnston

Hello Jason, I can see that you have corrected db error 561 but I can't see where you have added a source for that new information. As far as I understood Wikidata itself isn't a source, nor is it always correct, so just like any change to a profile on Wikitree that involves names, dates or places there should be a source cited that indicates the basis for that new information. Thank you
