Pearce Cemetery
I added photos of the headstones for this Cemetery. Thanks for your contribution to this site. Also the Cemetery is in Hamilton, Harris County, GA. Not Mountain Hill, Harris, GA. I'll research to see how to change city. DAREN

"William" Hardy Cornett

The old "Cornett Bible" which was largely written by Adeline Spence Cornett herself, mentions no such name as "William" for her husband Hardy Cornett. Until I donated this document to the Gwinnett Historical Society, I myself was the last family custodian thereof. (I have good quality JPEG scans thereof, also.) Moreover, I have seen no contemporary historical evidence which would suggest that Hardy ever went by anything but "Hardy". So--unless you happen to have some really good evidence to support it--may I respectfully request that you change my (our?) ancestor's name back to what the historical record shows--"Hardy" Cornett--without the "William"?

Many thanks!

"Adaline Elvira Spence Cornett"
She was born in "1835," not "1836," and spelled her name as "Adeline Elvery Spence Cornett." (Right or wrong, that's how she spelled it.) I can provide proof of this, if needed. Would appreciate it if you would make the corrections!

"William" Hardy Cornett
I assume you are a cousin, since I'm descended from Hardy and Adeline (through their youngest child, Addie C. Davis).

Thought you might want to know that the supposed first name of "William" for Hardy Cornett is nothing more than unprovable hearsay among some family researchers. It is one of those unfounded rumors which has circulated endlessly via the internet, but for which there is not one shred of contemporary evidence as support.

As such, I would very much appreciate it if you would delete it from Hardy's page here (except perhaps to add it as a footnote, with the caution I have expressed here).

You may take this on the authority of ME, a seasoned genealogical researcher since 1978, who has done a ton of detailed and painstaking research on this family.

I was also for many years the custodian of the Cornett Family Record (the fabled "family bible" of this family), which was not actually a "bible" per se, but was a small notebook kept by Mrs. A. E. (Spence) Cornett, in which she dutifully recorded all the births, marriages, and deaths of the family. She--and she would have known!--did NOT record a "first name" of "William" for her husband Hardy Cornett. ... (This Cornett Family Record is now in the safe-keeping of the Gwinnett County Historical Society--given to them jointly by me together with our late cousin Tom Littleton, whose input I had sought prior to giving the priceless document away.) It had been in the keeping of the family up until that point (2009). After Adeline's death in 1914, her daughter Addie Davis kept the record, then her daughter Bessie Davis White (my great-grandmother), then her daughter Bessie White Parker (my great-aunt), who eventually entrusted it to me.

Again, I will be VERY grateful if you will delete the name "William" from Hardy Cornett's page. We do not need to be spreading highly questionable "facts" on the internet, do we? Thanks very much!

Hi Sherry,

Clyde is one of my Zachry family members. I would be glad to add links/connections. Send them to me in an SAC and I will be more than happy to apply them.

Best Regards,
