Corn, Samuel (b. 1755, d. 1851)
Note: I have deeds from Samuel Corn Sr,April 1820, deeding parcels of land to
(1) son, Samuel Corn, Jr, and (2) to son, John Corn. This, along with the
inventory, following Samuel Corn, Sr's death 1831, Patrick Co, with Sam'l
Corn and John Corn as executers of his estate provides documentation that
Samuel Corn, Jr, who went to MO is son of Samuel Corn., SR. I still
haven't found anything to indicate maiden name of Samuel Sr's wife,
Elizabeth or where or when they were married. Also have deed from Richard
Corn and wife Jane, selling land to Jeramiah Hylars Aug 1831. He and wife
Jane give up all rights, except dower rights of widow of Samuel Corn,
dec'd. Richard, I believe is youngest son of Samuel and Elizabet Corn,

Lawrence County History
Mason Township, Lawrence County, OH, that James Corn, Samuel Corn, Jesse
Corn, William Corn and Harry Corn had settled there shortly after the
first settlement was made in 1810 on Buck Creek.
.
A HISTORY OF JACKSON COUNTY, OHIO by D. W. Williams--AN OLD TIME
WEDDING---(I will only give highlights, anyone wanting article, I'll send
copy)
It was perhaps as early as 1826 when Old George Corn settled on the hill
abt. a mile south of the place where Jefferson Furnace is now located. He
came from Old virginia, had been soldier in war of Rev. he had been
married twice, had a large family. I have often heard him remark he ws
the father of 20 children. he was a small man, but his sons were all
remarkably stout, healthy men. William Corn, one of his sons, married
Polly Massie, a daughter of Robbin Massie, and Peter Corn married
Rebecca, another daughter, while Big Jep, their brother married Lucy Corn.
This goes on to describe a bit about the wedding festivities for Big Jep
and Lucy.
I believe this is George Corn, brother of John Peter, Jesse and Samuel.
George is buried in Jeffeson Township, Jackson Co., Ohio. They seemed to
be there by 1816 as John S. Corn, prob. a son is on voting list for first
election in Jackson Co, Ohio in 1816. George Corn and Wm Ware and Hugh
Poor are all signing a petition for a "house of entertainment"in 1818.
Hugh Poor is a judge. Wm Ware and Elizabeth Corn married in Patrick Co.
Va 1807 and George Corn gave consent. Hugh Poor also is in Patrick Co
around 1800 or before. DAR centenial edition says George Corn died prob
Ohio so I think this is him. He is in a Rev War grave. A lot of same
names keep popping up.----Mary
.
James Franklin Corn's 1946 article entitled "The Corn Family of Mercer
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 Timothy written
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 article later
states, "He is probably the same George Corn who, according to records of
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 people that
may have been there and found alot of Palatine immigrants there. In
another post about Edward I think that Old George and Edward are related
and that three of the sons of Old George were born in Patrick, VA before
he went to Redstone with mother Dolly as sent to me by another researcher
that says in VA Birth records. No documents received yet, but this sure
would tie the VA Corns and Old George and Edward together if the
documents are true.
.
"Corn Cuzzin" and her library has a book written by James Franklin Corn,
called AFTER MANY DAYS, A Family Chronicle.It tells of Geeorge Corn and
his 5 sons journey down the Ohio from their home in Redstone, now
Brownstown PA to KY....and the CORNgroup moved to Shawnee Run, now in
Mercer Co. where *Old George"lived out the remainder of his adventurous
life.....
Other names mentioned are..Edward CORN, Rev. soldier and progenitor o

Corn, Jesse (b. 31 OCT 1753, d. 5 MAR 1809)
Note: Rev Soldier. - crippled- left leg cut off - died in Virginia
srv as Pvt. in the 7th VA Regt
.
If Jesse Corn attended Old Union Baptist
Church in Young Harris, he might possibly
be buried nearby. Try Vol 1 of Hearthstones
of Home, Foundations of Towns Co. GA.He is
listed along with John, Alfred and other
Corns
.
Jesse Corn enlisted early in the revolutionary war from Albemarle Co.,
Va. No doubt he was in his early 20's when he enlisted. He was 1st with
the Va. troops. Par of the time he was in Capt. Small's Va. Co., but
towards the close of the war he served 1 month in the Va. Militia. Before
the war he was Captain and majoor in the militia in Patrick Co., Va.
At 27 years of age, on Feb 21, 1780, Jesse Corn m Nancy hancock, dauy of
John hancock, in Fluvanna Co., Va. She was 17, 10 years yourger than he.
She was b Feb 17, 1763; d Jun 17, 1848 at 85 years. her death occurred at
t he home of her daughter, mrs, mary Sharp, near Winchester, Tenn. her
husband jesse d Mar 5, 1809 at 56 years. Their youngest daughter, Dicia
aor Dicy was 6 years old at the time.
In 1850, 2 years after the mother's deathe, the surviving children were
Elizabeth Sharp, wife of Richard Sharp; mary Sharp, widow of James Sharp;
mamcu <cCutcheon, wife of George McCutcheon; John; Samuel and Jesse Corn,
Jr. The son, Jesse, Jr., resided in patrick Co., Va. the others in
Franklin Co, Tenn.
Pension which was due nancy Corn on account of the service of jesse Corn,
her husband was allowed her surviving children on cetificate 5-525, whcih
was issued under the Act of Feb 2, 1848. The pension was paid at the
Nashville, Tenn. Agency. payment was made to Elizabeth Sharp, mary Sharp,
nancy McCutcheon, John, Samuel, and jesse Corn, Jr. In the year 1841,
nancy Corn wife of Jesse Corn, was residing near Winchester, Franklin
Co., Tenn.
Emmet Judson Corn was postmaste at Tucumcari, N.M. in 1939 and sent a
letter James C. Corn of 2017 N. 24th P., Phoenix, Az. in which he said,
"In 1758 Jesse, George, and Peter Corn landed in Va. from Scotland and
fought in Washington's Army."
In 1952, Mrs. McDowell said that they were trying to trace t he ancestors
of Jesse Corn, Sr., and thought it might lead them to a Huguenot
ancestor, and believed the name was originally spelled "Corne" saying
there was a "Corne" who came to Va. in the ship "Nassau" wiht the
Huguenots. Ageneologist Mrs. McDowell employed, thinks that our Virginia
Corns are descended for Pierre DeCorne, of Huguenot ancestry.
From Archives of the State Library of Richmond, Va. and Veteran's
Administration, Jesse Corn, Sr. served as a Pvt. in the Revolutionary
War, in Capt matthew Jouett's Co., 7th Va. Rgt., which was commanded by
Col. Alexander McClanahan; received pay for his services in 1777. It is
stated that his three brothers, George, John Peter, and samuel Corn
served also in the Revolution. As far as we know, Samuel Corn lived the
rest of his life in Virginia, but as to the other brother George moved to
Ohio

Corn, Peter (b. 18 SEP 1792, d. 26 FEB 1869)
Note: Census records of Buncombe and Henderson Counties are a fairly accurate
beginning for this family. In the 1820 record we find Peter listed as
born 1775-1794 while his wife was born 1794-1804. With them are one
daughter and one son, both under 10 yrs of age. In 1830 we find the
family has grown and in addition to the above, we find two males born
1820-1825 and two females age or born 1825-30, plus a male of the same
age. Knowing most of the names, we can only theorize on one of the two
youngest. In the 1840 census we locate the family in Henderson Co.,
formed two years before, and with them are another son and daughter born
1830-35 and a son born 1835-40. Not until 1850 can we find the real
answers to correct names.
With "probable" and "logical" places left to insert different names, and
due to lack of early records, we offer one strong possibility that the
oldest son of Peter and Polly Jones Corn was a John Roland. He was born
in 1818 in N.C., so the family states, and lived here until about 1845,
leaving in time for his third child to be born in Cherokee Co., GA in
1846. But our theorizing is done by the process of elimination, and we
include this thinking for you, as a member of Peter and Polly Corn's
branch, for you to weigh both pro and con.

Corn, Adam (b. 3 MAY 1783, d. 12 SEP 1871)
Note: first of three white men to settle Brasstown Valley
.
The Solemon Baptist Church, located on a hillside above the
Oconaluftee River, we find reference to Adam Corn first child of John
Peter. The year was 1806, when folks living in a virgin wilderness met
from time to time in different homes in this small settlement; they had
no church and no preacher, but they had their God. Then in the year 1806,
and at the home of Dr. John Mingus, whose ancestor Jacob had carved out a
homestead three miles down the way (1790) the group felt lit was time to
have a Church, where-in they could have their mid-week prayer meetings as
well as full church services.
The organizing body consisted of 23 people, and included two
Missionary Baptist preachers- Adam Corn and Davis Elders. Of one wi8ll
take time to look at the dates of both Adams's birth (1783) and the
location of the rest of the family(back in Wilkes Co., NC) one can see
the distance this young Man, now age about 23, traveled for the work of
the Lord. One man in the Oconaluftee River section offered to donate a
plot of land for the school and church on the banks of the river near
Bradley Fork at what is now known as Smokemont.
It is well to note that they outgrew the log church, it was torn
down and a frame building put up. Later in the 1930's the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park was established and the remaining descendants of
those earlier Pioneers had to move out.
As sometimes happens the Church was properly deeded over to the Park
Service with the agreement it would be leased back to them, for a period
of two years .
