We have just begun to search for our ancestors. Hezekiah McCotter came to this country as a British soldier in the Revolutionary War. We are trying to trace his home territory, he supposedly came from Scotland, but McCotter is an Irish surname. Also he married a Dorcas Riggs sometime in 1825. We have marriage bond application dated 1-12-1825. He is the father of John R. McCotter of Pamlico County, NC and Joseph McCotter of Pamlico County. The McCotter plantation was in Maribel, in Pamlico County. It was destroyed by fire after the civil war. Joseph McCotter and his daughter Sarah Elizabeth (Betty) moved in with relatives in Whortonsville, NC. Sarah Elizabeth later married John W. Sanders. They are buried in Oriental, NC.
John R. McCotter is buried in the Hickman-Riggs cemetery with his
3 wives. Hezekiah McCotter and Dorcas Riggs are also buried there in unmarked graves. Joseph McCotter's gravesite has not been located and that is our primary focus at this point.

ANY INFORMATION ABOUT MCCOTTER'S IN EASTERN NC WILL BE APPRECIATED AND I AM WILLING TO SHARE INFO..
