He died 1910 and his wife is buried with him. I suspect he is a son of the next Solomon COTNER.

2. Solomon COTNER b. 1794 possibly in Shenandoah Co., Va. (originally Orange Co.) d.1871, where ?. m. Elizabeth/Betsy MULLENIX (Mullinac) I think he is a son of Daniel CURTNER and Mary COBLE. In our local FHC, I found a microfiche on Ohio that list a Solomon COTNER m. Betsy MULLENIX in 1821. I suspect and am looking for the connection that he is a brother of Eli COTNER b.

(looking for more info on her also) Eli and Nackey are buried in Crooked Creek Cemetery of Cass Co., Ind.
