Jesse Porter CORNELISON

From source:
Jesse Porter Cornelison (John6, Jesse E.5, Johathan4, Cornelius3, Garrett2, Conrad1) was born February 11, 1838 in Barry County, Missouri.  He married (1) Levisa Lee.    He married (2) Mary (Cornelison).  She was born Abt. 1839 in Missouri.  He married (3) Nancy Almira Salmon Bishop.

THE CHEROKEE COUNTY HISTORY (First Edition) Published by the Cherokee County Historical Commission, Post Box 1128; Jacksonville, Texas 75766; Copyright 1986; page 217-218; THE CORNELISON FAMILY (exerts)

     "My grandfather, Jesse Porter, named for two uncles, was born February 11, 1838.  When young, he married Levisa Lee, who died possibly at childbirth.  He left Missouri and came to Cherokee County, Texas in 1857, joining two uncles already here.  In 1861 he married a widow, Nancy Almira Salmon Bishop, who had a daughter who married grandpa's brother, Jasper, in 1872.  There were born to my Grandparents Aunt Caladona, who married Jesse Evans; Aunt Ruth, who married Joe McMeans; Aunt Bertie, who married Paschal McMeans; Aunt Annie, who married W. W. Young; my father, Robert Wiley, named for two uncles, born March 13, 1865.

    Grandpa Jesse served four years in the War Between the States.  He was a farmer and owned a cotton gin.  He lived in a house on Dad's property in Stockdale.  He was a good man, a good-looking man, and when I teased him about being good looking he would always say, "The gals all said I was."  Many things he told me were true, and I loved to sit on his lap as he told me stories.  He always wore a long coat, and in his coat pocket was his New Testament, which he read often, and a little silver comb he allowed me to use to comb his hair and beard.  He didn't drink and I never heard him swear, and neither did he smoke.  He was an old time Democrat and a member of the Church of Christ.  He died November 5, 1928, and is buried in the Griffin Cemetery."


(MY NOTE: Question as to children's mother.  Cornelison report shows mother as Levina Lee, but subsequent birth dates as well as additional marriage dates dispute that.  Until verified, will use Nancy, as report indicates marriage in 1861, and children's birth dates begin in 1862.)

Thomas Boyd Foster writes in his family history (1893):
"As far as I am able to ascertain, my grand parents Foster raised seven children. These were Catherine, Isabella, Margaret and one daughter, name not known. I am inclined to the belief that this was the Mary reported to have died January 10th, 1806. The sons were James, Robert and William. Catherine Foster married Joseph Long, and settled in Bedford County, Tennessee. They raised a large family. Henry, the oldest son, married a Miss Anderson; was a Methodist minister; accumulated but little property; raised a large family of children; was a good and useful man, and when far advanced in life went to Texas and died.
Joseph Long was probably the third son; married a Miss Flack; prospered well in life. I think there was another brother James. One of the daughters married Andrew Wittenburg, and another married William Carpenter. These and perhaps others of the family, settled in Taladega County Alabama. Some of them moved to that county while the Cherokee Indians still occupied the country. As far as I ever knew of this family, they were remarkable for their uprightness, integrity and industry, and more especially for their piety."

William Foster, left a will in Wythe Co., VA. It was dated 20 may 1803 and named sons James, William and Robert and daughters Mary, Margaret, Martha, Katherine and Isabell. Grandchildren were also named as heirs of Thomas and Mary Foster, so a son Thomas was apparently deceased by this date.

AUTHOR: Thomas Boyd Foster
PUBLICATION: 1893 - 1895
Thomas Boyd Foster wrote this book at the request of his children in 1895, evidently not long before his death. It has been out of print for a long time.

Some sources gives Mary Gilmore's parents as James Gilmore and Martha Beaty.
