William Hadden Cotter and Elizabeth Ann Faress Cotter (a.k.a. Queen Ann Elizabeth Fariss or Farris) are my great-great-grandparents. William was from Louisville, Jefferson County, Georgia, and "Lizzie" was from Catahoula Parish, Louisiana. They both died near Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana. You can see their portraits here or read more about my Cotter line here.

I connected with Maxine Morgan (no relation to my husband's family that I know of) via Ancestry.com, where we discovered her husband and I have Cotters in common. Maxine, who has contributed quite a few Bienville Parish records to interment.net and USGenWeb, among other sites, graciously sent me these photos and gave me permission to post them here. Thanks, Maxine!
