Biography of Mrs. Sherman Cottrell
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Cottrell, Mrs. Sherman, representative of an old Hoosick family, was Phebe M. Case of Pittstown before her marriage in 1867 to the late Sherman Cottrell, who died in 1886 in the same house where he was born in 1844. He was the fifth son of Jonathan Cottrell, and one of the foremost farmers of his time. One may point with pride to his record as a man and a citizen. The county in which he resided, the community where he lived, will long have cause to regret his loss. Besides his widow he left five noble sons, and one daughter: Jay C.; Nathan Cottrell, residing with his mother at the old homestead; Case; Hattie, the daughter; Walter S.; and Ernest J. One daughter, Mary, died in 1877, aged six years.
