(NOTE: I am not a Cork and not related to the family so please do not ask for my relation to this family.)My aunt's father (my step-grandfather) bought her an antique Bible at a shop in California (how it got there is unknown).Listed in the Bible were these names:
MARRIAGE - Joseph R. Cork, born April 7, 1859, married July 3, 1844 Clara B. Corlis, born May 11, 1858.
BIRTHS - Arthur R. Cork, born July 6, 1885.Walter Barham Cork, born August 22, 1886.Clarence Herbert Cork, born December 4, 1887.Howard M. Cork, born November 19, 1888.Joseph R. Cork (Jr.), born April 6, 1899.
DEATHS - Howard M. Cork, died December 1, 1888, age 12 days.Arthur R. Cork, died March 3, 1903.Joseph R. Cork, Sr, died April 26, 1940.Clara B. (Corlis) Cork, died May 25, 1941.Walter Barham Cork, died June 9, 1959.Clarence Herbert Cork, died October 29, 1966.
This is an invaluable piece of genealogical data, but more importantly, a priceless heirloom.The Bible is in bad shape (it was this way when purchased), but can be rebound.My aunt wants to know if there are any descendants of the above out there so she can get it back into family hands.If there are please e-mail me.Joel Amos Gordon
