      3). By 1810, there were two more George Corn's in Kentucky accordingto the marriage records.
      4). In the 1810 census of Henry County, George Corn was 26-45 yearsold, married with 3 young sons under 10 years, and 1 young daughterunder 10 years, his wife was 26-45 years of age.
      5). George Corn is not found in the 1820 census records in Kentucky,Indiana, or Virginia. There is a George Corn inBloomfield,Jackson,Ohio at this time in the census records, with theages matching projected years of children noted in the 1810 census,but it cannot be confirmed that it is the same George Corn of HenryCounty. It was noted in our descendant grandson, Albert Corn's,biography that George Corn was in the War of 1812 and fought in 9different campaigns. If this is the case, George Corn of Henry Countymay not have been counted in the 1820 census. So, the 1820 censusrecord cannot be fully relied on since it is known that other "GeorgeCorn's" did exist by 1820.
      6). In the 1830 census of Henry County, Kentucky, George Corn isfound to have 1 son 15-20 years, 1 son 20-30 years, and George Cornwas 70-80 years old (b. Bet. 1750-1760); 1 daughter 10-15 years; andhis wife Rhoda Jane was 50-60 years old (b. Bet. 1770 - 1780)
      7). Taking into consideration the difference in ages between GeorgeCorn of Henry County and his wife in the 1830 census, then George Cornwas single in the 1787 census records at that time after all.
      8). 22 March 2007, I found that in the Historical Register ofVirginians In The Revolution, 1775-1778, The Revolutionary War, by J.H. Gwathmey, 1979, & The 1787 Census of Virginia Records, that therewas only one George Corn listed in both records in the correct timeperiod.

      JOHN PETER CORN INDEX
      "James Franklin Corn's 1946 article entitled "The Corn Family ofMercer
      County, Kentucky" in the Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
      states, "George Corn and his five stalwart sons, Timothy, George,Abram,
      Solomon, and Ebenezer -- all soldiers of the Revolution -- looked
      wistfully upon their simple home in Redstone, now Brownstown,
      Pennsylvania, on a March day in 1780 and resolutely turned their faces
      toward the mysterious wilderness of Kentucky . . .." This, in turn,had
      been taken from the pension application of George's son Timothywritten
      in 1834.
      A Brownstown, PA, is in Lancaster Co. in SE PA. Another, I am told, is
      near Pittsburg. I have found nothing which connects the name Redstone
      with Brownstown. However, there is a Fort Redstone in Brownsville, PA,
      south of Pittsburg in Fayette Co. The above referenced Corn articlelater
      states, "He is probably the same George Corn who, according to recordsof
      the Kentucky Historical Society, lived with his five son in Bedford
      County, Pennsylvania in 1777." This makes more sense since, I believe,
      all of what is now SW PA was, in those days, a part of Bedford Co.
      At Fort Redstone, they have no record of a Corn family in 1777.

      Supposedly near Brownstone PA. Did some searches with other peoplethat
      may have been there and found alot of Palatine immigrants there. In
      another post about Edward I think that Old George and Edward arerelated
      and that three of the sons of Old George were born in Patrick, VAbefore
      he went to Redstone with mother Dolly as sent to me by anotherresearcher
      that says in VA Birth records. No documents received yet, but thissure
      would tie the VA Corns and Old George and Edward together if the
      documents are true."

      The Corn Family
      (Henry Co., Ky., New Castle Courthouse: 1798 from Shelby Co., Ky.,:1792 from Jefferson Co., Ky: 1780 Kentucky Co., original fromVirginia).
      George Corn, (parents are not known) died 1832 in Henry Co., Kentucky. He married Rhoda Jane Williams, born about 1769 , the daughter ofDavid Williams, on November 28, 1796 in Shelby Co., Ky.
      On September 20, 1824, in Henry Co., Kentucky, GEORGE CORN made awill, and on November 2, 1831, added a codicil. Excerpts from thewill are: "First, I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, JANECORN, the tract of land on which I now live, containing 99 acres ...all horses, cows, hogs, sheep, and all other stock ... householdfurniture and tools of all kinds for her to use as she thinks mostproper in raising of my children. But if she should marry again, itis my will she take her third (children's names are John, eldest,Williams, Margaret, Samuel, George S Corn and Mary Ann Corn, each toreceive one dollar.). I will everything to my wife as long as sheshall live out of wedlock after my decease." This is his last will... signed by making his mark - George X Corn.

      Will witnessed by Sanford Brent, James Hallis, and Joseph Tagne(Tague).
      Codicil November 2, 1831 - "I further direct that there be noappraisement nor inventory of my estate". Signed George x Corn"his mark"
      Joel Jackson, witness.

      A paper purporting to be the last will and testament of George Cornwas produced in Henry Co., Ky. court, and proven by oaths of SanfordBrent and Joseph Tagne (Tague), ... Recorded by Edwin P. Thomas,Clerk. (CAK)
      = = = = = =
      From the above will, a question comes up as to why Miles L Corn wasleft off the will. At the time of the first writing Miles would havebeen 11 years of age and at 1831 would have been 18. Also in readingabout the will from a hand written account of the Corn family, itcould have been left out. (This is what happened as have obtained acomplete copy of George Corn's Will from source (KCT) and note theaddition of "Miles L" after George S and before Mary Ann in thefollowing excert.)

      The author, Pauline Walters, of the above article wrote in her report,"I would like to know how our George Corn is related to George Corn(I), and his five sons, who came to Ky. from Pa." It would seem thatthere is some question as to her own research.

      (NOTE) the rest of this article continued with Williams Corn moreabout - Notes.
      = = = = = =
      A) From the article above - George Corn came from Germany, Wales orEngland according to the hand written account. (see reference to Mrs.E E Davidson and letter from a descendant of Timothy Corn)
      B) From the WFT CD Volume 1, Tree 0467 under Mathew Corn - Mathew andMolly Corn, with 3 bros., Jesse, George and Samuel - came to thiscountry early in 1700. They were of German and Irish descents.
      C) From the Familytreemaker Message board, in reply to RE: FrancisMarion Corn by a Gary Cornn, (587 of 783) for Mathew Corn under notedevents in his life was 1) Immigration, 1750, Virginia. Mathew and hiswife Mollie came to America with 3 brothers and 2 sons. The brotherswere Samuel, George and Jesse. The sons were George and Samuel.
      D) From the WFT CD Volume 15, Tree # 0346 under John Adams Corn -John Adams Corn was born 1705 in Isle of Wright City, and died April1758 in Albemarle Co., Virginia. He married Mary (?). The childrenwere Mathew, Jesse, George and Samuel. It continues with Mathew beingborn about 1722 in Germany and that he married Molly. Their childrenwere John Peter, George, Samuel, Nancy Malinda and Jesse.
      E) From the AOL Ancestry World Tree for Mathew Corn - it has amarriage date of 1751 in Albemarle Co., Virginia to Molly (Corn).
      F) From the AOL Ancestry World Tree - Edward Corn married a MaryJones in 1703 in Maryland. Their children were William, Timothy,Sophia, Andrew, Edward and George Corn.
      G) From the article - Kentucky Ancestors, Volume 14, No. 1, datedJuly 1978 - George Corn (parents unknown) died in 1832, Henry Co.,Kentucky.
      H) From the book - Corn Family of Mercer Co., Kentucky, by James FCorn:
      1) George Corn died 1801 in Mercer Co., Kentucky.
      2) George Corn married Jane Williams, dau of David Williams, November8, 1796 in Shelby Co., Kentucky.
      K) From the book - Kentucky Pioneer and Court Records:
      1) Jane Corn married John Wright - 1801
      2) Jesse Corn married Janny Vanarsdall March 24, 1808
      3) George Corn married Ann Cooney March 2 or 28, 1809
      4) Polly Corn married Nelson Harris March 4, 1812
      5) William Corn married Delilah Gritton March 13, 1816
      6) William Corn married Catharine Talbott December 2, 1830
      L) Census records:
      1600 - 1789 shows Jesse Corn in Fluvanna Co., VA and Andrew Corn inHampshire Co., VA plus some Corns in New Jersey.
      1790 - shows possibly that Andrew has moved to Nelson Co., Ky plus theCorns in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, North Carolina andPennsylvania. There is a Noah in CT.
      1800 - tax records of Clark Co., Shelby Co. and Mercer Co., Kentuckyand Knox Co., of Indiana. Two in Washington Co., Pennsylvania. Plusthose still in New Jersey and North Carolina and now Delaware andGeorgia.
      1810 and 1820 give count of free white males and free white females.
      1830 and 1840 give count to free white males and free white femalesplus male slaves and female slaves.
      M) Census records of 1810 indicates that the counts do not match upwith the number of members of the family according to names, dates andgender. Example is that of Ebenezer Corn of Clark Co., in the 1810Census in that the number is correct as to how many people in thefamily are involved but the genders are reversed as is that of GeorgeCorn of Henry Co., Kentucky.
      N) Misc. notes - Mercer Co., Corns - indicates that all the Cornswere Revolutionary War soldiers and that George Corn who enlisted in1777 at the age of 19 was discharged as a Lt. and from the samearticle that George applied for a pension and had a wife, Sally (age14), Tom Jefferson (age 11), and Malinda (age 9). Kentucky Ancestoryhas a George Corn of Shelby Co. or Henry Co., Kentucky, and had a willmade out in 1821 and listed his children plus his wife, Jane. Thewill was signed and witnessed in that George made his "mark" with anX, thus indicating that he could not read or write. The George thatwas a Rev.
