Margo Snowden on Saturday, June 21, 1997
COREY, John and COREY, Asher Wilford. John COREY is the father of Asher Wilford COREY. Asher was born 1852 in Marion County, Ohio. This info is from family tradition only, no record of proof of birth. A probate record shows John died in Marion County, Illinois in the "spring of 1879" but the probate record is recorded in January 1897. So the death date may be 1897. I need something more reliable to prove the death date. Also, I need the mother of Asher. Seems I've searched forever for this info. I will be most appreciative of any help on this!

If anyone has any books or records of any kind--would appreciate any information on the Romine family. I am thinking Abraham Romine that the Romine Township was named after may have been John's father since his first born was also named Abraham. Thanking you for any information.

I am searching for the identity of Mrs. M.M. DALTON. She was shown as the "parent or guardian" on my ggrandfather's Spanish-American War papers in 1898. She was living in Centralia. My ggrandfather was James A. LOVETT, b. 1875 in Ohio. His father was Conrad LOVETT and his mother was Sarah Elizabeth POWERS. They divorced and the children were sent away. James was sent to Illinois, although I'm not sure if it was to Centralia, originally. I do not know were James's sister Eva "Minnie" was sent or what ever happened to her. Conrad Lovett married again in 1889 to Evaline Mays and Sarahs last husband was Alva Warrells. Family stories say that Conrad may have been "adopted" by LOVETT's and his name may have orginally been DALTON or RAYBURN, so perhaps Mrs. DALTON was more than a guardian, she could have been a relative. I have been stuck on this particular branch for many years and I would really, really appreciate any info!!! Thanks!!
