I'm a descendant of Moses PARKER and in a collateral line to the COTTINGHAMs. You are welcome to post the below message to the list if you think it would help. I'll be working with Jeff MOORE, a PARKER/COTTINGHAM descendant, who is also on this list. "Documenting the descendants (and their migrations across the south) of the twenty-two children of Moses PARKER, b 26 Aug 1744, VA, d 12 Nov 1830, Marlboro Co., SC. A grand daughter, Nancy PARKER, b 3 Feb 1796, Marlboro Co., SC, d. 22 Jul 1873, Bibb Co., AL, married Elisha COTTINGHAM Sr. Nancy was the daughter of John PARKER and Sarah BROWN. Several BROWN, COTTINGHAM and PARKER families moved from Marlboro Co., SC, and adjoining Richmond (now Scotland) Co., NC, to Humphreys Co., TN, and then to Bibb Co., AL. This list was recommended to me by a fellow researcher who is also a member."

I am new to the Cottingham list and I'm very excited about being connected with other researchers and possibly family. I live in Calera in Shelby County, Alabama and my mother is Ella Katherine Cottingham. Our line is from Elisha Cottingham line which settled in Bibb County, Alabama around 1817. I believe my Elisha was the son of Charles Cottingham of North Carolina but I still have not been able to actually document this information due to a gap between 1790 and 1817. I believe he stayed in Tennessee those missing years but actual documentation has eluded me. I do have documentation from 1817 to today. In 1817 or before Elisha Cottingham Sr, came to Alabama with his four sons William, Charles, John and Elisha, Jr. (Elisha, Jr. is my line). . John went to southeast Alabama. Charles is found in Bibb County in the 1830's. Elisha, Jr. stayed in Bibb County. William stayed in Bibb County until at least 1835. He disappears after then. William was a well-known Methodist Circuit Minister. When the Cottinghams got here, they immediately established a Methodist church in 1819. This church was called "Cottingham's Church" until around 1840. The name was changed to Wesley Chapel and it was active until about 1990. It is still in there in the woods and is used for singings and homecomings. There is a Cottingham cemetery in the woods which contains the graves of Elisha Jr., his wife Nancy (Parker) Cottingham and their children. John, William, Charles and Elisha Sr. do not have a marked grave in Bibb County.
If anyone can provide me with information on Elisha and Nancy (Parker) Cottingham from 1790 to 1817, I would greatly appreciate. I will be glad to share any information I have.
