About the Cottrell surname

There seems to be some descepancy with who Sylvester Cottrell's parents are. He was b. 1742, died in 1830, was married to Margaret Pendleton in 1767, and one of his sons named Shubal Cottrell. The parents I have at the moment are Joshua Cottrell and Desire Crandall but the wedding dates can't be right with Sylvester's birth. Anyone shed any light on this? I would appreciate any information.
