Need help with I.D.
My dad called it a corn cutter... does not look like any I can find. Just curious what it is. No markings of any kind.

I'ld call it a "Spring tine tiller".
Different from some, but would serve the same purpose of breaking up the soil after mould board plowing.

What would the wheel thing in the middle do?

A picture from the other side would probably help. From this angle it looks like something pretty light duty that would hang from the four points and cover a pretty good area. My first thought is I could see that thing hanging from the belly of an old tractor raking something sandy like a beach or an arena. Is there a drawbar or some other attachment point on the other side?

That's what we would have used to chop cotton.

Where? I just don't see them attached to each other. If that wheeled thing below rotated, it would catch the spring tines.

I think bcp has the right idea in post 6.

I'd try lifting the spring tine frame up with something and see if the wheeled thing stays on the ground.
