I am uncertain which of the sons it was but one of the Cordells of Loudon Co Va went to Canada I remember seeing a statement that he went to Canada and planted the 1st apple orchard Got very rich growing apples. I'm looking at my notes and i dont find that in my notes. However they are a big clan and that one wasnt my direct line so I only know that.
Apples myst have been a big thing with them Ive got a ledger of my Gr-g-pa and he must have a listing of25-30 types in it.
Any way Good luck Oh the name of the original in Us was John Cordell Sr wife Elizabeth Edward (dec of King Edw.I) 3 sons Nicholas, Geo Edw.(my lIne)and John JR SeeYa Thom C.
