Cecil married Sarah E. Corey on 26 Jun 1954.

121. Marvel Corey was born in Jun 1888 in Missouri.

General Notes: I don't know that Marvel is actually a child of William and Isabelle. All I have is circumstancial evidence. In the 1900 census she was living as a boarder in the Thomas Wood household. This household was very close to the William Cory household. No other Corey families were living in Laclede at this time. The census also listed her fathers birthplace as Michigan (William Thomas Cory's birthplace) Mothers was unknown. If Isabelle was deceased as I believe she was, Marvel wouldn't have had any contact to verify her mothers birthplace. In the 1910 census The Thomas Wood household is the next one from the William Cory household. Marvel is not found in the 1910 census. She would have been old enough to have been married and in her husbands household.

122. William Cory was born on 11 Jan 1898 in Laclede, Linn, Missouri and died before 1900 in Laclede, Linn, Missouri.

General Notes: William died before the census was taken in 1900. Only Esther was listed as a living child. The cenus record also showed a child was deceased.

123. Esther Cory was born on 14 Feb 1900 in Laclede, Linn, Missouri89 and died after 1953 in Great Falls, Montana.

General Notes: I could not find a marriage record for Ester. I do know that she was married to Leonard Shatto before 1917 because of a school attendance and guardian record that I found at the Hoxie, Sheridan county, Kansas genealogical society. I have a copy of this record. Her brother (my grandfather) is listed in this record also. His guardian is listed as William Thomas Corey, his father. While researching census records I found that Leonard Shatto was born in Sullivan county, Missouri. He is also much older than Ester.
Thomas Eugene Corey 30 March 1997
1930 census Augusta, Lewis and Clark, Montana pg. 8B School District 45
Named as a living sister in Joseph Bowman Corey's obituary in Sept 1953.

Esther married Mr Leonard Paul Shatto before 1917. Leonard was born on 5 Jun 1885 in Sullivan County, Missouri.116,117

General Notes: I happened to run across Leonards name and parents while researching for Mary (Maloney) Corey's parents.


The child from this marriage was:

   162 M    i. Paul Rudolf Shatto was born on 3 Mar 1921 in Hoxie, Sheridan, Kansas and died on 24 Feb 2004 in Yuma, Yuma, Arizona at age 82.

General Notes: Name: Paul R. Shatto
SSN: 516-22-3843
Last Residence: 85364 Yuma, Yuma, Arizona
Born: 3 Mar 1921
Died: 24 Feb 2004
State (Year) SSN issued: Montana (Before 1951 )

Paul married Ida. Ida was born about 1925.

Esther next married Leonard Justesson after 1920.

124. Joseph Bowman Corey was born on 20 Dec 1901 in Reger, Sullivan, Missouri,90 died on 11 Sep 1953 in McCook, Red Willow, Nebraska91 at age 51, and was buried in Riverview Cemetery, Mccook, Red Willow, Nebraska.

General Notes: On Josephs birth certificate it states that he was born near Reger in Sullivan county, Missouri. I believe this is wrong. My own research backed up by census records from 1900 and 1910 show that his parents are living in Laclede, Linn, Missouri. William, Joseph's father bought the house in 1877, he was living in it with his first wife in the 1880 census. With his second wife in 1900 and 1910 census.
On his parents Marriage record it states that his mother was living near Cora in Sullivan County. I do know from land deed records that his father had bought and sold land in Linn and Sullivan counties. Joseph was listed on the 1910 census in Missouri. So from that we know it was after this date that they moved to Guy, Kansas (it has since been renamed Tasco). For census purposes this is the Valley township in Sheridan county Kansas. I visited the genealogy society in Hoxie, Kansas and they had a school attendance report for the 1916/17 school years that listed him and his sister. He married my grandmother in Jan 1923. At this time both parents are deceased so he had to wait until he reached age 21 for probate to be settled. After this it appears they moved to Hollie, Colorado and stayed there for awhile. By 1928 they had moved to Eckley, Colorado where the rest of the children were born. Aunt Lillian told me that they lived in Red Cloud, Nebraska for a short time. About 1946 or 1947 they moved to McCook, Nebraska where they lived the rest of their lives. From the late 1920's until his death he worked for the Railroad. His Social Security card was issued through the railroad. His death certificate shows that he died in the railroad yards at McCook, Nebraska. An autopsy was done and it was determined that he died from a heart attack.

General Notes: Gene was born in Eckley, Colorado. He always talked about how much he loved the mountains and the woods. When he was a boy of 14 or 15 he worked for a rancher in the mountains. When I was a young boy he would tell stories of the old ghost mining camps and towns that he backpacked into. He really enjoyed hunting and fishing, and camping out. In 1944 he enlisted in the U. S. Navy, went to boot camp at Great Lakes Training Center near Chicago, IL. He was stationed on the west coast and assigned a radio talker position on a destroyer. This was towards the end of World War II and he was on Guam after it was taken from the Japenese. My mother still has a saber that he brought back from Guam. After the war ended he was in China just before the communists took over in 1947. He told me that he almost went back into the interior with a missionary group but didn't. He was glad of this because he believes that those missionary's were killed by the communists or warlords. From 1947 to 1950 he worked as a Plasterer's apprentice here in McCook, NE. I never new this about dad, I ran across this information by accident when I was reading his DD214 discharge papers from the Navy. It listed a prior occupation and gave the dates. When Korean conflict started he went back into the navy, but instead of the west coast he was on the east coast. He was on a destroyer again, the USS Cone DD866. He visited France and the Mediterinean this tour of duty. He came back to McCook, NE and met my mother (they eloped and got married in Tucumcari, N.M.). They came back to Cambridge, NE where he owned a service station with a partner. Shortly after this they moved to Yuma, CO and operated a dairy farm. My brother David was born here. Gene had been taking electronics courses and learning how to repair radios and televisions. When he finished these courses we moved back to McCook, NE and he was a radio tv repairman up until about 1970 when he went to work for what was at that time Electric Hose and Rubber Co. He was a lathe operator and machinist up until he became disabled in 1975. His disability was caused by 3 heart attacks and a stroke in late 1975.

General Notes: Helen had a very tragic life. Her first husband was killed in a work accident just 3 years after their marriage. The daughter from this marriage was killed in a car accident, her second husband was so severely injured in this accident that he had no recall of Helen or the marriage. Her third husband Dale I remember as being an alchoholic and abusive to Helen and her children. When I was young I remember Helen being a waitress and working long hours to support herself and children. In the late 1970's she hired on at a local factory and became a forklift driver. This occupation is what she did up to the time of her death.

125. James Harrison Poor 94 was born on 27 Mar 1843 in Freetown, Jackson, Indiana66,95 and died on 4 Oct 1921 in Buried Blockton, Taylor, Iowa96 at age 78.

General Notes: History of Taylor County (Taylor County Iowa) pg. 356
J. H. Poor
Persistent, earnest labor has constituted the foundation upon which J. H. Poor has built his success, making him one of the substantial farmers of Gay township. He now resides on section 25, and is busily employed with the care of a farm of one hundred and twenty acres. He has resided there for thirty-five years, having in 1874, come to Taylor county from Ringgold county, Iowa, where he located in 1870. He has lived in the middle west although the place of his birth was east of the Mississippi. He first opened his eyes to the light of day on the 27th of March, 1843, in Jackson county, Indiana. His father Samuel Poor, was also a native of that state and having arrived at years of maturity was married there to Julia Ann Winegar, a native of Tennessee. Mr Poor followed farming in the Hoosier state and there reared his family. At the time of the Civil War he espoused the cause of the Union and served at the front until honorably discharged on account of disability. He passed away in 1895, and is survived by his widow who resides with a daughter, Mrs. Sutton, in Missouri.
The boyhood days of J. H. Poor were quietly passed upon the home farm in Jackson county, Indiana. Though the period of his boyhood and youth he worked in the fields through the summer months and in the winter seasons acquired his education. He was married in 1862 when twenty years of age to Miss Harriet McCain, who was a native of Ohio, but was reared in Indiana. After their marriage the young couple began their domestic life upon a tract of rented land which Mr. Poor cultivated until 1864. In February of that year, constrained by a spirit of patriotism, he offered his services to the government, enlisting as a member of Company H, One Hundred and Twentieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. With that command he went south, the regiment joining the Army of the Cumberland. He was first under fire at Buzzard's Roost, a hotly contested battle in which Mr. Poor had the first finger of his right hand shot away, thus becoming permently disabled. He was in the hospital for a time but later joined his regiment and subequently participated in the battles of Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain and the Atlanta campaign. He was also present at the battle of Jonesboro and after the capture of Atlanta was with his regiment when it was sent back to Nashville, participating in the last engagement there. Later he was sent to Washington D. C. and subsiquently to Morehead City. He afterward joined General Sherman at Raleigh, where he was held on guard duty until 1866, when he mustered out and sent home, receiving his honorable discharge at Indianapolis on the 9th of January of that year.
When the war was over and the country no longer needed his military aid Mr. Poor returned home and later purchased a tract of land in Jackson county Indiana, where he carried on general farming until 1870. In that year he came to Iowa, settling first in Ringgold county, where he purchased forty acres of land which he broke and fenced. He there carried on farming for four years when he sold the property and bought forty acres of his present farm. Only a small box house which he and his family occupied for four years or until he was able to erect a more commodious and modern residence. Desirous of becoming the owner of a more extensive farm he added to his original tract from time to time as his financial resources increased and broke the sod and tilled the soil until his place was converted into rich and productive fields. He also built a substantial dwelling and likewise a good barn and hog shed. He also set out fruit trees, planted a grove and made the place what it is today, a well improved property. He raises high grade stock, including hogs, cattle and horses and his fields annually bring forth rich harvests.
Mr. and Mrs. Poor have become the parents of nine children: J. C., a young man at home, who assists in carrying on the farm; Charles, a resident farmer of Gay township; Benjamin B., of Blockton, who was a soldier of the Philippine war and had his left thumb shot away; John, who is doing for himself; James and Jesse, at home; Charlotta, the wife of Delta Ketch, of Blockton; Jennie, the wife of William Hensley, a farmer of Gay township; and Emma, who died in September, 1908, at the age of twenty four years.
In his political views Mr. Poor has been a Republican since casting his first presidential ballot for Abraham Lincoln in 1864. With one exception he has supported every presidential nominee of the party since that time. He belongs to the United Brethren Church and to the Grand Army Post and is highly esteemed in both organizations. For nearly forty years he has lived in this part of the country and since 1874 has been actively concerned in the developement and progress of Taylor county, especially along the lines of agricultural development.
He has worked earnestly and persistently to attain the success which is now his and which makes him one of the representative agriculturists of the community.

James served during the Civil War in Company H 120th Indiana. It appears from census records he lived close to his grandfather Wendell Poore in Taylor county, Iowa.
I did not find James in Jackson County, Indiana in 1870 census. He may have joined his grandfather in Iowa by this time.

James married Harriet R McCain in 1862 in Prob Jackson County, Indiana. Harriet was born in Feb 1844 in Ohio137 and died in 1916 in Buried Blockton, Taylor, Iowa138 at age 72.

Children from this marriage were:

   172 F    iii. Jennie Poore was born in 1869 in Prob Ringgold County, Iowa.96

General Notes: Jennie's great grandfather Wendell Poore came out to Iowa before 1860. From all the census records I have found (1860 to 1880) while Wendell was alive he lived in Ringgold county. Wendell is buried in present day Taylor county, a little town called Blockton. From information I have found the preponderence of the evidence says she was born in Ringgold county.

General Notes: William was born in Indiana, I have not been able to confirm Brownstown, Jackson, Indiana like the family folklore states. His parents most have died when he was quite young. In 1860 he was living with a brother Jacob Zike. If you do reseach in Jackson county on this line don't be confused on the Jacob Zike family. Jacob also had a son named William, this William married the 29th day of September 1859 to a Julia Ann Wininger. Jacob's son William had his own household in 1860.
William married Harriet Poor the 22nd day of July 1860. Both William and Harriet can be found in their gaurdians/parents homes in the 1860 census.
From a Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Indiana Volume 7 1861-1865 we know that William served in the Civil War. He is listed as being in the 120th Regiment Infantry Company H, he mustered in March10, 1864 and mustered out January 8, 1866. This record showed he lived in Freetown. His actual military papers showed he lived in Salt Creek Township, Jackson County, Indiana. I don't know which is correct because Freetown is in Pershing township.
In 1870 William and Harriet are living in Owen township, Jackson county. I can't make out the name of the town listed under postoffice. At this time they have 4 children listed in the house, unfortunately the census taker didn't write down the full name of the children, only initials.


Children from this marriage were:

A Tribute to My Grandmother, Mrs. C B Deibert
The highest honor that can be paid to any woman is the honor of motherhood. A woman may have riches and gold, she may be a great educator in some university, her name may be in history, she may be a great writer, her books incirculing the earth; but what of motherhood? Can any woman possess greater honor than motherhood.
If it were not for the tireless patience of motherhood we would not have our great men and woman.
In the building of America, motherhood had as much to do as man. They stood side by side with their husbands through battle and storm, building homes that their children might not have to endure what they had to endure. Sometimes schools were not to be and mother, with a prayer, started in to educate her children, to her own standard. Mother was educator, physician, nursemaid, and everything to her children. She knows their every want and their every need.
My grandmother was of the pioneer type, coming west with her husband and children, making a home here on the plains of western Kansas. There was no sacrifice to great for her to make for her children or husband. She would do without the things she needed so that her children might have what they needed.
That is not all, she was a friend to all, a mother to all. No night was to dark, no storm to fierce or roads to bad for her to come to the bedside of a sick friend. She was allways loving and kind to everyone, always ready to go and do what she could in her own loving and kind way.
These few and simple words cannot express what I would like to say, but I am glad that I can say them to the honor of my Grandmother. My God, rest her soul in peace.

Obituary Dated 30 August 1956 in the Hoxie Sentinel, Hoxie, Sheridan co., Kansas
Long Time Citizen Called to Reward
A large number of relatives, neighbors, and friends of long standing, attended funeral services Sunday afternoon from the Hoxie Methodist church for Corwin Bruce Deibert, who passed away Friday morning from a lingering illness. Rev. Ray D. Applegarth, of the Christian church, officiated and interment was in the Hoxie cemetary.

The double quartet included the following: Aileen Roadhouse, Margaret Percival, Hazel Andregg, Anna Currier, Howard Currier, Eldon Steinshouer, Lloyd Morgan and Alex Fromme, Gertie Richardson was organist.
Corwin Bruce, eldest son of William and Charlotte Deibert, was born Oct. 14, 1860, in Macon county, Friends Creek Township, in the state of Illinous, and passed to his reward at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. E. Morgan on Aug. 24, 1956, at the age of 95 years, 10 months and 10 days.
At the age of five he moved with his parents to Ohio where they lived for about a year. They then moved to Ringold County, near Redding, Iowa, where Corwin grew to manhood.
On May 27, 1883 he was united in marriage to Anna Belle Zike. They made their first home near Redding, Iowa. This home was blessed with 10 children: Charles, the eldest, passed away July 12, 1949; Mrs. Cora Turner, of Superior, Neb.; Mrs. Laura Mitchell, of Topeka; Mrs. Alpha Hines, of Yuma, Colo.; Mrs. Lena Morgan, Wayne and Julius, all of Hoxie; Mrs. Zelma Sallada, who passed away Oct. 3, 1919; Frank, of Esbon; and Mrs. Edna Corey, of McCook, Neb.
In 1886, Corwin with his wife and two small children, came to western Kansas to take up a homestead in the Northeast part of Sheridan county. They remained on this place for about a year then returned to Iowa.
In 1901 they returned to Sheridan county and lived on a place about five miles south of Hoxie. All of the children with the exception of the youngest were born during this time. Corwin remained in Sheridan county the rest of his life.
In 1906 he with his family, moved to the Walker ranch south of Hoxie. He lived on this place until about 1935 when he ended his career as a rancher and farmer, and then lived the rest of his life with his various sons and daughters.
On May 27, 1933, he and his wife, Anna Belle, celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary. But the Supreme Being had made His plan, and Anna Belle was called to rest on March 2, 1934.
In early manhood, Corwin was united with the United Brethern Church at Redding, Iowa, and remained with that faith until he was called home.
Altho Corwin lived to an advanced age, far beyond that of most men, he remained active almost to the end.
Besides his children, he leaves two sistors: Mrs. Alma Harris, of Oakland, Calif.; and Mrs. Iva Murphy, of Redding, Iowa; 44 grandchildren, 109 great grandchildren; 18 great great grandchildren; a number of other relatives and a host of friends.
He was always a kind and loving father and a close friend to all. There never was a stranger in his presence. He was always ready to help any person who was in need.
