Dea. Joseph Cory
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1801
Death: Jun. 6, 1892

It was the last of April, in the year 1831, so rich in pioneer experience, that Deacon Philip Gray, in company with his nephews, Deacon Joseph Cory and his brother Philip, and Deacons Samuel Brown and Asa Briggs, left Detroit for Kalamazoo.
Deacon J. Cory returned to Saratoga Co., N. Y., his home, in July, and came with his family to this township several years after. He was one of the first shoemakers in Galesburg, where he yet lives. A highly social and worthy citizen, a devoted and valuable member of the Congregational Church, Deacon Cory has ever had the esteem and confidence of the people of this community. He is now living with his second wife, an amiable and intelligent lady, with the comforts of life around them.
