Looking for the family of ALBIN CORNOG who was born 1819 in Chester Co., PA. He moved south (with parents?)to Pendleton, SC, and married SARA SHEPPARD, b. SC, in about 1840. They lived in Hart Co., GA, and raised 2 children there: WILLIAM LEWIS CORNOG and SARAH "SALLIE" CORNOG, my grt grt grandmother.
From a book on the history of Hart County: "SHOAL CREEK FACTORY: This one-time famous industrial plant was founded about 1842-3 by J.J.J. SHEPPARD and ALBIN CORNOG, both of whom came from Pendleton, SC, and purchased a tract of land from R.K. WALTERS, including a spendid water power on Big Shoal Creek."
Sallie Cornog married R.K. WALTERS' son, WILLIAM R. WALTERS, who died at Petersburg ... killed by a sharpshooter after having survived some of the most horrendous battles of the war.
I know that there were numerous CORNOG families in PA., but I have not found a link to any of them as yet.
