Honoring Corel Cousin Veterans

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!

I decided to sort the names by the children of William & Rebecca and then list them in order of their enlistment date.  This list is based on the information I have in my tree. If you know of someone who has served that I do not have listed here, please let me know!  I plan to create a Veteran page to showcase all information I have compiled.

In the list below you will find 3 female descendants who have served in the military.  They are marked below in bold red text.  Two women served during WWII and the third served stateside during the Vietnam Era.  I am very proud to be the daughter of the female who served during Vietnam.

Under Jemima, Henry Highland, Rebecca Ann, William, Cosby Jane, James Pickens, and Olivia Gillespie you will see the first veteran listed with a * following their name.  These individuals are ancestors of the spouse Jemima, Henry, Rebecca, William, Jane, James, and Olivia.
