Benajah Corson d 1827
Posted by: Michael Cooley (ID *****9395) Date: June 08, 2007 at 21:52:57
  of 732

According Kathleen Wolfe's website, Benajah Corson left a will in Clark county naming his brothers and sisters [Clark Co OH pg 232]. Does anyone have a transcribed copy of it? John Wood's widow, Charity Wood, is found living next to Christianna Corson, believed to be Benajah's mother, in 1830...

1830 > OHIO

It's know from the 1915 memoirs of Charity's grandson that her maiden name was Corson (actually, he says Carson). If the will is as revealing as suggested, it could nail Charity's pedigree.

Thanks,
Michael
