George B. Peart

George B. Peart was born to William B. and Mary Alice Brown Peart October 1882 in Kansas, perhaps while visiting family, as William and Mary Alice had already begun a life in Colorado by the time George was born. George B. Peart can be found living in Reno Ward 3, Washoe, Nevada, but I have had a difficult time finding much else on George’s life.

William B. Peart

William B. Peart was only a year and a half when his mother died and he and his siblings were taken in by the Corel family. William Peart moved with the Corel family when they settled in the Kansas Territory. In the 1855 Territorial Census, William Peart is living with William and Cosby “Jane” Corel Justice. I have had difficulty finding William Peart again until 1870, when he is living, possibly as a boarder, with the Espenlaub family. During the 1860 census, however, he may have been living with James Pickens Corel and family, as there is a W Albert, age 14, listed with the family. It’s a stretch, but it is the best I’ve been able to come up with, because I can’t imagine a twelve year old being sent out to live on his own.

Mary Louisa Peart

Mary Louisa was born on September 7, 1844 in Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri. Her mother, Oney Biggs, died when she was five years old. Mary and her brothers went to live with William and Rebecca Oney Corel and their family. I could not find Mary Louisa in the 1855 Kansas Territorial Census, she and her older brother, Stewart, may have stayed in Missouri with their father. In 1860 there is a 17 year old Mary L. Peart living in Westport, Jackson County, Missouri who is employed as a servant.

Peart Family

In the 1850 census of Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri, the Peart children are shown living with William and Rebecca Corel and their family. It is shown that Oney P. Biggs-Peart died in January 1850. Who was Oney? Is she somehow related to Rebecca Oney-Corel? The Peart father, Jonathan, lived Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri, perhaps as a border in 1850. Perhaps he was just unable to care for the young children and felt they would be better taken care of by William and Rebecca.

New Pages Added

I thought I should take a minute to announce that I’ve added a couple of pages to the website. First, I have added a contact page with email addresses of researchers of the different lines. The first contact is for Connie Bishop, organizer of the Corel-Oney family reunion. I want to stress again, if you have never been to a reunion, or if you have moved since the last reunion, please make sure to email either Connie or myself with your information so we can be sure that you are up to date on the reunion plans!
