Cottrell-Brashear Familly Linage
Ancestors of Taylor C. Cottrell, Jr.

In this book I trace my paternal (Cottrell) and maternal (Brashear) ancestral lines through at least four generations in a hardbound 622 page volume. Details on children and grandchildren are included when known. Much of the information was passed down within my family and is based on original sources that have not been made available in published works. I have included copies of some family documents as well as family photographs. Sources are extensively documented. I included timeline and ancestor charts as well as an all-name index with page number references for each individual.

Primary surnames include - Alford, Brashear, Cosby, Crutchfield, Ennis, Foreman, Halsey, Kirlen, Lansdale, Penner, Taylor, Wheeler, and Wilson.

The most prominent supporting surnames include - Acton, Atkinson, Baker, Bass, Birkhead, Boulton, Bowles, Breedlove, Brown, Bruner, Burton, Coleman, Cook, Cooper, Crow, Daniel, Davis, Dawson, Dishman, Dotson, Duvall, Emrich, Floyd, Gottschalk, Harris, Harrison, Hayes, Hays, Hall, Harrison, Hermon, Hines, Hite, Hooker, Howard, Irvine, Joyner, Kirk, Kries, Lively, Madison, Maxey, McGinnis, McKinney, McLellan, Miller, Moreland, Nichols, Parker, Phelps, Phillips, Poreman, Potter, Puryer, Ramsey, Robinson, Sale, Sevier, Shake, Shields, Slaughter, Small, Smith, Snead, Stratton, Suman, Temple, Wade, Wilcoson, Wilhite, Wilhoyte, Wilson, Wilkerson, Wise, Woodcock, Wren, Yewell, and Young.
