Alvin Cornell
Obit for Alvin Cornell

Died, at his residence four miles east of Hebron, of Lung fever, on the 14th inst., Mr. Alvin Cornell. He was a man who was highly esteemed by all who knew him. He was in every sense of the word a gentleman. He was among the early settlers of Boone township, and shared the privations of a frontier life. He was kind and hospitable in all his relations in life, and his loss will be felt in the community and in the Christian church, of which he was a member. He had been suffering from rheumatism for several years past, but has been able lately to look after his business and was in Hebron only a few days before his death.

Ira Cornell
Ira Cornell was born in Wayne Co., OH the son of Isaac Cornell #19858549 and Priscilla [Morgan] Cornell #71994411. Would you please link them.


Bio for Ira Cornell: From the History of Porter Co.

Ira Cornell was born in Wayne County, Ohio, December 23, 1823; his father, Isaac, was born in Pennsylvania April 17, 1792, and his mother, Priscilla (Morgan), in Virginia May 31, 1799. They were married April 9, 1818. In the spring of 1835, the family came to Boone Township, this county, and settled on a 400-acre tract of land. They were the first white people to locate in the township; the land was not put on the market until 1838, when the father bought it from the Government at $1.25 per acre. From this farm he shipped some of the first wheat ever sent from the township. Here Ira Cornell entered forty acres, which, in due course of time, he saved money enough to buy, and soon succeeded in buying 160 additional. October 30, 1850, he married in Wayne County, Ohio, Miss Emily Kaufman, who was born in Lancaster, County, Penn., May 22, 1825. They have had born to them six children - Alice, September 3, 1851, Elmina, December 20, 1853; Isaac, October 23, 1854; Effie, August 11, 1857; Rose K., May 28, 1863; and Fannie L., November 18, 1867. Mrs. Priscilia Cornell died November 25, 1859, and Isaac Cornell January 22, 1874. Alice Cornell was married to John McConkey, and Elmina to Leander Jones. Effie has been teaching school since 1874. Ira Cornell has now a fine farm of 315 acres on Section 23, with a new two story frame dwelling. His present corn crop, of ten weeks' growth, stands at twelve feet six inches; he has some very fine live stock, his Norman horse being the finest in the county, with a mane forty-five inches in length; he has taken numerous premiums at the county fair for this animal and for others. Mr. Cornell is a member of the Christian Church, is a liberal Democrat in his political view, and loyal to the Government, having aided it by all means in his power during the recent rebellion.

RE: Noah Bonesteele
thanks... I thought maybe the comment on the page was wrong or misread... Hard to tell from the picture - anything you find is appreciated...

Do you think it possible that the "10 years old" could be 40 years old? Just curious...

Thank you for the new picture of Noah's grave... I was hoping to be able to discern if the age of 10 years old was correct.... still cannot tell, but must assume so and if so - not a great-grandparent @ 10 years old and not the Noah Bonesteele I am looking for... :-)
