I found some interesting info on the Coosa Co., Al GenWeb, today... and added some of my info... Let me know if it connects with anyone. I think Adkin Corley d. 1863 Coosa co Al was the son of The Adkin that was a son of Richard.

OK now this is something... in the 1850 census of Walker Co Al Our Clement Corley (Md Elizabeth Raburn) is next door to John B. Raburn of GA..
In the 1860 census Clement and Elizabeth are in Tuscaloosa co. and next door to John B. Raburn 72 b. GA IN WALKER CO AL is a Simeon colley 45 b. SC with a wife M. age 40.. (Now the Simeon above in the 1850 census of Coosa co. Al has left Coosa Co.) Are these the same Simeon's???? Is he a brother of Clement? Oh yes at the top of this Page for Walker Co Al is James Cain 64 GA and wife Elizabeth age 55 SC (which are yours Candice, am I correct?) This Elizabeth is a sister to Clement...
now back to the 1850 Coosa census.
This Adkin Corley is too young to be our Clements father but look at the names in the probate of his in 1863. He named one of his children Clemons and one Simeon but no Elizabeth or Thomas who we believe are siblings of Clement.. Now the Simeon listed in 1850 is too old to be his son as he is 35 in 1850 and this Adkin is 44 so he probably his and Clements brother, along with Simeon, and probably the Richard listed next door to Adkin.
My belief is that there is an Adkin of SC who is the father of an Adkin, Richard, Clement, Simeon, Thomas, and Elizabeth, (and somewhere back in my mind I keep thinking of a Nancy as a sister also). Do any of you have any such animal in your files??
