So I received a message this week that my 7-year-old nephew had a school project and needed to know an ancestor who had immigrated to the US. I can bet that my sister did not expect me to give her a list of nearly 40 ancestors for her son dating back to the 1600s! Once I had completed that little project, I was still feeling that genealogy itch, and since I’ve let my subscription to Ancestry.com expire, I decided to play with the website a bit. I cancelled the subscription for multiple reasons, yes, it is quite expensive, but too many times when I start researching, my ADD kicks in and I get lost in the research I’m doing. Without having that rabbit hole to jump down into, and this genealogy bug getting to me, I may actually get somewhere with this site (at least until the next squirrel comes along to distract me!).
I have been struggling for the past week on how to post this list of Corel Cousins Veterans. It may not be the prettiest list, but I am proud to say I am related to them all and I thank each and every one of them for their service to our country!
Olivia Gillespie Corel was born January 14, 1838. Olivia is the youngest child of William Corel and Rebecca Oney Corel. Olivia’s obituary says that the Corel family arrived at Westport Landing in 1849 by way of the river boats carrying pioneers to the West.

Not nearly all that I have is up, but I do have the basics. I found that I kept going back and back wanting to add more and more. I have to find a stopping point and move on to the next child. I already know that I need to go through all of the children to add more. A couple of the children may be as far as they can be until new information is found on the child’s life, or until I get into the stories of their children.
