Notes for JOHN CORNWELL:
Information on this family from the LDS FHC. I have the deed of land from
Mary Ann Cornwell to grandson George Blake and the will of Mary Ann.
John's origins are murky, but there is a record of an Isle of Wight county
marraige (1763) between a John Cornwell & a Mary Ann Buckner...even though
they are more closely tied to Fauquier & Prince William counties.
There are several John Cornwells in the records of the Blackwater Swamp
Community on the boundary of Surry & Isle of Wight counties at about the
proper time, but the proof needed for a tie hasn't jumped out at me yet.
The best candidates appear to have been living in the area late in the 1780s
after we think Ann Buckner's John had met his demise, could they have
seperated and Ann gone North and he stayed behind? chuck
....some information from Patty Phillips....... and Scott
Kendall........also unproven by me..........
MANY THANKS to Mr. Charles Carter of VA for finding the information on the
Cormwells in the first place!......... and all he has contributed to this
line. jd <><

George was in the war of 1812 for VA., 28th infantry. Have military

Drucilla Adkins and second to Nancy Leggett. Nancy is listed on the

children by the 2nd & 3rd marriages.....
