Re: [genpcncfir] Della Cotten
I believe Della A. Cotten was only 17 when she married A. J. Moore.
I doubt there was an earlier marriage. He died before she did.
I do not know if he may have had a previous marriage. He was older
than Della. I have not found him in either the 1850 Census or the 1860
Census. Do you have access to the 1850 Census for Edgecombe County?
