In Reply to: Cullen Cornett's Family by Mary Cook by Janice Heidt of 1646

Dear Janice:

I have just completed a genealogy of the descendents of Cullen Cornett. He had 13 children by his first wife Sarah Crays and 8 by his last wife Mary Cook. I did not know that his daughter Mary by his wife Mary Cook married a Porter. Do you have a marriage record for Mary Cornett born ca. 1858? I do not have any information on sons William born ca. 1854 and James born ca. 1855 but Martha born 1856 married Charles E. Thomas 12/27/1877 in Fannin County, GA. Son Thomas Buford Cornett born October 1860 married (1) Nancy Gassaway ca. 1884 in Cherokee County, GA and (2) Aurora Langford 4/18/1901 in Cherokee County, GA. Thomas died after 1930 in Walker County, GA. I already have the information from you concerning Enoch J. Cornett and his family. Daughter Nancy Cornett born 1864 in Fannin County, GA married John Helton 2/14/1884 in Cherokee County, GA. Daughter Sarah Cornett born 1870 in Fannin County, GA married B. Willis Boling 8/16/1888 in Cherokee County, GA.

Cullen Cornett had a daughter named Sarah by Sarah Crays and a daughter named Sarah by Mary Cook. He had a son named James by each wife and a son named William by each wife. Burgess Cornett, his oldest son by Sarah Crays, died after 1880 in Gordon County, GA. His first wife may have been named Mary Chastain since they had a son named Abner and Abner Chastain was the father of Rachel Chastain who married Burgess's brother Eldred D. Cornett. Sons William and John by his first wife lived in Murray County, GA and each spent some time in AR judging from the birthplaces of their children.
