I regret I cannot respond to your query re your missing sister. I hope you will not consider this an intrusion. My grandfather, Harry Cotter, was born in London (Chelsea) in 1898. He emigrated to Canada with most of his siblings in I believe 1903. I am a novice genealogist trying to find any information I can about Cotter descendants who remained behind. I am aware of two sisters- Nelly Rose. I would also very much like to find any info I can re his father, Henry Cotter, from Ireland and his mother, Sarah Shepherd, from England. Is it possible you are related to my Cotters or perhaps are aware of them through your search Any info or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Lisa Bianco
