Lawrence Corley1

Male, #32050, (1742 - 15 Dec 1815)
Note* Ann Cantin, a. k. a. Marie Cantlin, e-mail June 2001: mcantlin@tampabay.rr.com: Now, to the Corleys. Sarah Corley, born c. 1804, SC, was the second wife of Jacob Rawls, Jr. They married in 1838, presumably in SC, as I don't believe they came into Coweta Co., GA, until 1839. Sarah Corley was the daughter of Lawrence Corley and Annie Barbara Derrick, of Lexington, SC. Sarah had 1 child. She died 10 Aug 1849, of apoplexy and is buried in Mt. Pilgrim Lutheran Church Cemetery, Haralson, Coweta Co., GA. Her headstone says right on it "daughter of the late L. Corly of Lexington Co. S.C." Note his name spelled without an "e." Buried right beside her is Elijah H. Corley, died 10 Sept 1851 aged 48 yrs, 1 month, 28 days. This MIGHT be a brother of hers. I've seen, photographed and done a rubbing of Sarah's headstone.

William Taylor's 1st wife, Rebecca Corley, who he married 30 Sept 1819, Lexington Co., SC, was also a daughter of Lawrence Corley and Annie Barbara Derrick, I'm pretty sure. Rebecca was born 4 May 1800, Lexington Co., SC, and she died 4 June 1863, Haralson, Coweta Co., GA. Likewise, she is buried at Mt. Pilgrim Lutheran Church Cemetery, Haralson, GA. Her headstone says she died 4 June 1863 at 63 years, 1 month. She had 10 children.

I have not pursued Lawrence and Annie Barbara Corley. I do have a birthdate for Annie as 17 June 1770 and a deathdate of 15 March 1858. Both Lawrence and Annie were born in SC. Annie was the daughter of Thomas Derrick, I've been told. That's all I know..........
