The Corel Children
The image to the left is a photograph taken by Bobby Title of information contained in a family bible that was brought to the first Corel Family Reunion in 1990 by Daphne Canterbury Pereles, great-granddaughter of Olivia Corel McGee. In 2001 Bobby posted her transcription of the Bible at the US GenWeb site for Tazewell County, Virginia. You can see this transcription on RootsWeb.
