Do you have evidence that Henry Core of German Twp., Fayette Co, PA had a brother named John?

In Earl Core's publications there is said to have been a John Core killed in 1778 in Monongalia Co., WV, who Core says was father of Michael Core.

Michael Core was an 'heir' of a George Core, recipient of VA grant land in Monongalia Co. originally claimed by George.

In your post earlier today on the Barrickman message board, which you had removed together with my response, you stated that this George was father of Henry Core of Fayette Co. As I noted there, so far as I know there is no evidence that the George mentioned in the land record (and only there as far as I know) was father of Henry. While Michael Core did have some connections with German Twp, Fayette Co, PA, and I found a few ca-1800 tax list entries for a John Core in Fayette Co, these few items do not amount to much in the way of evidence of familial relations.

Your earlier post today on this board, regarding Jesse F. Core Sr. and his son Jesse F. Core Jr., asked for information on a Jesse Core (who d. in 1821) mentioned in a gedcom tree entry somewhere as being son of Henry Core of German Twp, Fayette Co. You had that message removed.

For information on a Jesse Core who d. in 1821, and the family of Henry Core of German Twp, estate, land and tax records in the Fayette Co, PA County Courthouse may have the answers. The first appearance of a Jesse Core could indicate when he reached taxable age; sometimes when a person is struck off the rolls the assessor notes 'gone away' or 'deceased'. Sometimes the assessor noted when property had been transferred from one person's assessment to another's, and might even note if the land or livestock from a decedent's estate was now being assessed to a father or brother.

Good hunting,
