Subject: [TXBOWIE-L] Cornelius Family
Date: Mon, 29 Nov 1999 07:50:36 EST
In about 1818-1820 a Cornelius family settled in Clark Co AR. I understand
that there were also Corneliuses in Bowie Co., TX. Does anyone know or have
any ideas on the question that these two Cornelius groups may be related?
My ancestor was Jester Cornelius, b 1818 in Clark Co or Lawrence Co., AR.
His daughter was my g-grandmother Malinda Caroline Cornelius who married
James Washington Wingfield.
Possible siblings of Jester Cornelius:
Henry F. Cornelius b: 1801 in MO or IL
Kezzia Cornelius b: 1805 in ,,VA
..... +James Walter Crow m: 1821 in Union Co., IL
Jeptha Cornelius b: Abt. 1808
Reubin Ragland Cornelius b: February 12, 1812 in ,,MO d: December 30,
1874 in , Hempstead Co., AR Buried in Baldwin Cem.
..... +Martha A. Heffington b: Abt. 1813 in , Logan Co., KY d: 1885
in Hemstead Co., AR Buried in Baldwin Cem. m: March 12, 1835 in Hemptsead
William R. Cornelius b: Abt. 1813 in ,,MO d: 1852
..... +Elizabeth Elkins b: Abt. 1824 in ,,AR d: 1852 m: September
23, 1849 in Hemptsead Co., Arkansas
Any help would be appreciated,
