These are notes that I took -- the information may or may not be correct. These are secondary sources and, as with all genealogical data, the information should be verified with an original source when possible.

Notes from telephone conversation with Sara Akers on 3 Jul 1988

George Valentine Corell (a wealthy man), and a brother, only came to the colonies once. He married in Augusta Co., VA (before 1810) to Catherine Weaver, sister of George & daughter of John. Her father was dead by the time she was married.

Valentine left Augusta Co. in 1810. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church in Montgomery Co., VA.

Re the Corrells:

In the 1500's, they were in Spain & oppressed as they rejected the Roman Catholic church & became Christians. They traveled from Spain to France to Germany. 5 groups of them went up into the Pureney [spelling?] mountains in Germany for 2 or 3 generations. When they came out of the mountains, they spoke a mixture of Spanish & German.

Hannah Lemon lived approximately 112 years. Her mother's maiden name was Van Dyke. She's buried near Union Valley.

George W. Correll [who married Malinda] was a member of the Brethren church.

James P. [Correll] married Octavia Patterson.
