COTTINGHAM/COTTINGAME/COTTONGIM/COTTONGAME

The following is completely unresearched by me.  I have found this information on many different web sites and am currently interested in documenting each generation to make sure this is an accurate account:

1 George Cottingham (Possible ancestor of Thomas)
...2 Thomas Cottingham
......3 Jonathan Cottingham I
.........4 Jonathan Cottingham II
............5 Charles Cottingham/Cottingame b. ca 1750 md. Nancy Conner?. His will proved 1817 Marlboro Co. (District) SC.
...............6 Satilla/Letilla Cottingame (Satilla is named as a daughter of Charles Cottingham in his will.) Md. Isaac James.

The  following I have discovered through legal records and interviews with relatives:

..................7 Louisa James md. Marion Alexander Wadsworth "Worthy" Williams.
.....................8 Winford Martha Jane Williams md. Jacob Leroy Cobb Garrett
........................9 William Henry Harrison Garrett md. Nancy Viola Elizabeth Ward

      Mary      20; AL

Many sources list Letilla's name as Satilla and perhaps that was her correct name.  In the 1860 census, the L in Letilla's name looks like an S.  When comparing the letter to other names in the census, it becomes obvious that names beginning with L have this same letter, but names beginning with S have a completely differently letter than the one which begins Letilla's name.
