After reading your messages, I was sure we connected somehow.After I found time to dig into my Corbell information, I finally figured it out.
Our common ancestors are Charles Austin Corbell (1805-43) and Nancy Crenshaw.Among their children were two sons, George Washington Corbell (1835-1923 who married Sophrina A. Smith) and Perry Cornelius Corbell (who married Frances Elizabeth Ann Mason).You descend from George and I descend from Perry.
I next descend through Perry C. and F.E.A. Mason's son Britton L. Corbell and wife Emma Schooler.Their daughter was Bessie Lee Corbell, my grandmother.Her siblings were Ida, Narra (died at 4 years old), Perry, Judy, Lula, an unnamed baby born dead, Luther, Clarence, Rueben, Clara, Earl and Curtis.
Bessie married Richie L. Davis in Erath Co TX, and they had four sons, one of whom was my father, Olan A. Davis.
If your clan lived in or near Erath Co TX, they probably knew their cousin Bessie.
You mention an "Elmer".My Elmer was my mother's father, Elmer Stephens.He and his wife, Jessie Lee Sanders, married in Stephenville TX and lived many years in and around Coleman Co TX until they moved to the Rio Grande Valley in the 1920s.
I have figured out part of your linage as George Washington Corbell/Sophrina A. Smith, then Charles Washington Corbell/Elizabeth Hemphill, then Charles Edward Corbell, the brother of Iva Velma Corbell.After that, I have no info.Let me know the rest of your branch.Look forward to hearing from you again.
