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!).
In researching the Puckett family, I have really had a difficult time in being able to find any proof of anything other than three Puckett men have married three Corel sisters. I have struggled with how to create this page. I even did some ‘old fashioned’ research hoping that I might be able to get something to click. Since I haven’t had that ‘aha’ moment, I will share what I have found in my digging.
This page is to honor the Corel Cousin Veterans. Female veterans are shown in bold red text. An * indicates that the veteran is not a descendant or spouse of a descendant of William and Rebecca Oney Corel, but an ancestor of a spouse who married a Corel Cousin.
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!
Louisa Corel was born March 22, 1825.

OK, that’s a bit more than what I’ve accomplished so far, but just a bit! Jemima and Louisa are uploaded and I am now working on Margaret. I have also made some minor updates, that many will likely not even notice.
