Surnames: Cotton, Gibson, Moore
I am in search of the Thomas A. Cotton family from the Larmar area. I know his wife stayed in the area after his death and can trace her until 1920. Her name was Alzada and the children were Clella who married a Gibson, Garland born in 1890, Zonie who married a Moore and Everette (?) who was born ca 1896.
I am trying to locate the burial place for Margaret Alzada Cotton and any related info on the family.
