The Official and Unofficial Histories of the Cotten Family
by James Elliott Moore
Sept 2018 from nephew James E Moore this note:
Carl Witt has been telling me about a family history of development. His mother’s first cousin Jarvis Godwin Outland, known to the family as Buddy, was killed in the attack at Pearl Harbor when the USS Oklahoma went down. His unidentified remains, along with countless others, were interred at the Punch Bowl Crater, the local of the National Memorial Pacific Cemetery. In recent years, DNA testing identified his remains. A cousin Ann Outland of Pendleton has been campaigning bring him back to Murfreesboro for burial. Buddy’s mother was Eva Cotton Holloman. She is thought to have been buried in the Holloman cemetery out at Buena Vista. Mr. Outland married again and is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Murfreesboro. The plan is to inter Buddy next to his father. The tentative date for the ceremony is October 13th. Ann has rented the Methodist fellowship hall there for a reception afterward. Carl will be able to tell you more about this as we get closer to the date.
Buddy’s mother Eva Holloman Outland and Carl’s grandmother Jessie Moore Daughtry were granddaughters of Jesse Cotton Moore, a second cousin of Dr. Godwin Cotton Moore. Jesse married another second cousin of GCM. I think Matilda Daughtry.

Portrait Donated to Murfreesboro Historical Association
Bob Carr, former Murfreesboro resident now living in New Hampshire, has donated a copy of Thomas Sully’s painting of his daughter Ellen Sully Wheeler with her boys Woodbury and Sully. The original, which hung at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for many years, was sold at auction in 2015. It is now in private hands. The copy is 3/4 of the size of the original. Mr. Carr donated the painting in honor of Mrs. Gertrude Revelle in recognition of her tireless efforts on behalf of the John Wheeler House. The gift was unveiled at the annual meeting of the Murfreesboro Historical Association on April 21, 2017.
