Margaret, daughter of Henry Highland Corel and Nancy Matney has been quite elusive since she was enumerated on the 1865 Kansas State Census in Clinton, Township, Douglas County, Kansas. In fact, it has long been believed that she died shortly after the census was taken and is the Margaret Corel listed as being re-interred at Oak Hill Cemetery about 1871 after being initially buried in the Pioneer Cemetery at Mt Oread.

I have recently found that a Margaret Corel married Samuel Edgerton (both of Clinton Township) on April 5, 1867 in Lawrence, Kansas. I have only done a quick search, and have not located any records for a Margaret Edgerton.
So now I am left to wonder who is the Margaret who married Samuel Edgerton? If it is the daughter of Henry and Nancy, who is the Margaret Corel that was originally buried at the Pioneer Cemetery?
