Book title "Fallen Leaves" includes a fairly comprehensive record of the Cornett family.  The book was written by Lucy Gay and Shirley Evans in 1992-3.  Lucy's phone number is 606 464 3850.  There are over 20 pages about the Cornettss.  I would recommend it.

Rhonda Radcliff   Wed, 19 Nov 1997
I looked at Perry County, KY census information put together by one of Cornett subscribers.  I can't remember who compiled it, but I appreciate it, as it was very helpful to me.

I have been researching for a Samuel Cornett who had a daughter, Malinda.  Malinda had a son, Jonathan, by John Lewis of Harlan County, KY.  Malinda and John never married.  She later married Josh McDaniel. The census information provided was the first real proof I had. However, I don't know who Malinda's mother was.  I suspect that this Samuel was the son of Jonathan Cornett (one of the original  Cornett brothers from England).

I'd like to hear from the person who put the information together. There are so many Samuels and Jonathans that I've gotten confused.

Any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone researching the Cornett side of the Canute/Cornutt/Cornett family, ever look into
when the name was legally changed?  In my tree I'm trying to list birth names and then when I find a name change I include it in notes.  Seems all the Cornett's out there list only the name change.  I just think you can get a better picture of things by listing what moniker they came into this world with.  This might be foolishness from a newby. Anyway, if anyone happens to have some of this info I would appreciate anything you're willing to share.
Thanks, Skip

Any hints or suggestions on where to look?

Leslie Collier Tue, 21 Oct 1997

Would like to talk to Cornett researchers of Russell, Lee, and Grayson Co., VA, prior to 1800. My interest is specifically in the Cornetts who associated with various Hatfields. I'm trying to prove several "hidden" marriages.

A Mary Hatfield married a John Cornett in 1794 in Grayson Co., VA, and later lived in Anson Co., NC.

It appears that a daughter to John and Rebecca Hatfield of Russell (and soon Lee Co.), VA, married a Cornett, living next in Campbell Co., TN, and later in Marion Co., TN. Deeds of John Hatfield were witnessed by both a William and a David Cornett.

I want to discover a closer tie-in and be able to provide Hatfield ancestry.

Chris Page Tue, 19 Aug 1997

I am trying to "get my feet wet" and fumbling as only a newbie can. I am interested in the Combs and Cornett lines and where they are linked.

I am a Combs of Hazard, Perry County, and have Cornett cousins. (at least I think they are cousins.) I do not know where the link is, however. I was seven when my family (William B. Combs b. 1909 d. 1996) moved to Maryland so I do not remember too much about Hazard. My dad had four siblings of whom only one, a sister Kate, is still living.

I would appreciate any information on these two families and/or the Eversole line which you might be willing to give.

I now live in Phoenix Arizona. There seem to be a lot of Combs' here, also.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you may provide.

Rosalene Nielsen Tue, 19 Aug 1997

My file on Rachel Cornett Combs dtr of Nancy Cornett & Samuel Combs and married to Civil War Levi Pennington is thoroughly corrupted. I need help. She is the sister of Mary Combs who married Elijah Roberts Begley.

Was there MORE THAN ONE Levi Penningtons?

FIRST: born 1810 NC married to a Nancy Cornett age 38 (per 1850 Census) Ch: Rebecca 14, Timmothy 12, William 8, Anny 7, Felix 4, and James 2 (RETRIEVED FROM COMBS WEBSITE)

SECOND BORN: 30 AUG 1821 Perry Co., KY

THIRD BORN: 15 AUG 1802?


Did Levi have two wives, one Nancy Cornett and the second Rachel Cornett Combs. If so, who were the parents of Nancy Cornett? Don't say Samuel and Nancy, she married Samuel Combs.

Does anyone have the pension records for Levi indicating who his children were, when he married, etc. Rachel cannot have been born 1812, because her parents did not marry until 1819, and her mother Nancy would have been a child.

I also have another Rachel Combs born 1830 Perry Co., KY

I have the same children plus more for both Levi and Nancy and Levi and Rachel. Which makes me suspect he was married twice?

The 1860 census might help, for the younger children, but the older would be gone. If you have source info, I truly will appreciate your help. I am tearing my hair out.

I am researching the family/ancestors of Samuel Cornett. Unfortunately, I know very little about him. Sam is supposed to have been born in time to be a young man during the Civil War to a wealthy North Carolina family. He fought for the North while his three brothers fought for the South. As a result, he was disowned and moved to Eastern Kentucky and married Nancy McIntosh and had a son James (b.ABT 1882 m.Julia Bryant d.1953). I suspect that a lot of this story is fiction and that Sam came from Kentucky. If you have ANY information on a Samuel Cornett, I would really love to see it! Thanks!

I just found info in a funeral home record book on the father of L. T. Cornett, great-grandfather of my late husband. The family only knew that he was suppose to have come from Texas sometime after the Civil War. In the funeral home record for his sister, Martha Cornett Ellison b. 1852 in Tenn, it listed father as Henry Cornett, mother as ___ Gordon. Two brothers L.T. Cornett, Cedar Creek Mo and Joe Cornett, OK. There was a name mentioned, E. L. Poff, of Ft. Worth Texas, but no relationship noted.

Does anyone know of this Cornett family in Tenn? The marriage info for Henry and the Gordon? This was such an accident since I wasn't even looking for them that my mind is still spinning. <G> Sun. Dec. 29, 1996

I am interested in the families of Hardy CORNETT of Edgefield District of SC and of George CORNETT of Albermarle Parish in Surry/Sussex counties, VA. Especially need information on the parents of George CORNETT (he received a land grant in 1722, estate inventoried 1767 in Sussex County, VA. It appears his son Joel had an illegitimate son Hardy that may be the South Carolina Hardy CORNETT. I can share information on some of the CORNETT families of Georgia, especially those of Harris County.

In our papers, we show a Nancy TAYLOR married A Flemming CORNETT 30 Aug 1870, in Grayson Ct. VA. His parents were Alfred & Elizabeth. I'd like more information on the Flemming Cornett family, if possible.

Also,I'm interested in records on a Fellowship Baptist Church which existed in Grayson Ct. in 1871, and had a Jasper Cornett as a trustee.

Any help would be appreciated.
