Looking for my Great Grandfather, Cassius Corson's, father. He was born out of wedlock in 1859 to Magadelena Weaver of Jacksonburg. No one ever spoke of it, so all I have are rumors. The rumors are that his uncle was Oscar Taylor Corson, son of William Corson. His father was supposed to be a well educated man, possibly a lawyer. I could only find one son, Oscar, listed for William. Oscar is only 2 years older than Cassius, so I thought maybe William was his father. Or, William had a younger brother, John Ross, whom I thought was a possibility. William's father was Daniel Corson. William's children were born in Camden and he died in Camden. William married Elizabeth McBurney. There is some confusion here, too, because it also listed his younger brother, John Ross, as marrying an Eliza McBurney, 5 years after William married Elizabeth Burney. I'd really appreciate any information anyone might have on the Corsons.
