***************************************

Cornelia Lee Converse was born on Jan. 30, 1833 in Columbus, Franklin Co., Ohio. She was the daughter of Elijah Damon Converse (1789-1850) and Rebecca Abbott (1792-1858). Her parents married on June 11, 1815.

Her father, Elijah, was born in Danberry, Fairfield Co., Connecticut. Her mother, Rebecca, was born in Abbottsville, Adams Co., Pennsylvania. Both died in Ohio.

Cornelia married John Andrew Coburn on Thanksgiving Day Nov. 25, 1852 in Columbus, Franklin Co., Ohio. He was 29 years of age, Cornelia 19. John was the son of Wilson Coburn, MD (1793-1833) and Ann Willis Woods (1795-1892).

Both of John's parents were born in Mason Co., Kentucky. John's father died in Maysville, Mason Co., KY. John's mother died in Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois.

Cornelia and John had two known children. The first child was daughter, Jacqueline Converse "Lena" Coburn (1853-1930), born in Maysville, Mason Co., KY. She married Edward Tracy (1844-1903).

Their second child was Carrie McNulty Coburn. She died not long before her first birthday in Superior, Douglas Co., Wisconsin of "brain fever', an old term for both meningitis and encephalitis.

Cornelia died on May 19, 1859 in Maysville, KY at the young age of 26, less than a year after her daughter's death. An old Coburn family Bible says she died of "consumption", an archaic term for tuberculosis (TB). She and John had been married only six years. Cornelia was buried in the Maysville Cemetery in Maysville, Mason Co., KY.

Cornelia's husband, John, apparently never remarried. He died on Feb. 19, 1896 in Maysville, KY at the age of 72. He too, was buried in the Maysville Cemetery.
