Hello Again!
I found some interesting info in a big 'ol book in the Hawley Library. The book is titled" A History of Wayne, Pike, and Monroe Counties Of Pennsylvania" It was written by Alfred Mathews in 1886.
I typed my notes in the []s.
Here is the part about Correll's:

"Benjamin Correll came to Sterling about 1810. His Children are William, Benjamin, Ervin, Elias, Theodore, Alexander, Hannah, Mary, Emeline, Margaret, Carrie, and Harriet. Benjamin Correl, born at Montrose, July 18, 1801 married Doroty Mettz, moved to Howetown [right near the cemetery from which I gave you the other info] when 21 and became one of the pioneers of the county. His second wife was Mrs. Mary Stucker, who survives [in 1886, of course] at age 87.
Benjamin died at John Kipp's [local resident's home] in Greene Township [which is Pike County]aged 84.
He had 14 children by his first wife, nine of whom were living at the time of his death in 1886, and left 82 grandchildren, 84 great grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild."

On another note, I'm still tracing my family, but have found that Rebecca Kayser, who was the daughter of William Akers and Mary/Polly Coe, had a daughter Sarah E. who married Theodore Correll. This is how I am connected. :]
