Have you read the discussion of the Corey family in Mary Walton Ferris' book "Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines, Volume 2"? In this, John's wife is Sarah Miller, and his parents were John Corey and Betsey Little. From what Ms. Ferris writes, this elder John Corey was first married to Johannah Hand of Cape May, New Jersey (marriage dated 14 jun 1762).There is a lot of interesting material in this book, although Ms. Ferris was unable to trace the Corey line any further back. (She does trace Betsey Little's ancestry, though.) Are you a direct descendant of these Coreys? I am descended through Sophronia Corey (daughter of John and Sarah), who married Jesse Weldin. Please contact me if you'd like to exchange more information.
