Thanks for these additional details, Venus.I'm not familiar with Larry CORLEW's book and can't find it listed at DAR or the Library of Congress.Is this the proper citation?
Corlew, Gary L.Corlew Family Genealogy: Descendants of Edward Corlew of York Co. VA.Joliet IL (?): G.L. Corlew, 2005.
Information from a history of Dansville, Steuben Co. NY, indicates that Lewis d. 1907 in Manitowoc; that Eliza Ann (Phelps) CORLEW moved to Brown Co. KS where she d. bef. 1920, and that they had two children: *Laura Ann CORLEW b. 1847-1849, m. 19 Sep 1867 in Manitowoc to Norman PIERCE, the younger brother of her aunt, Eveline (Pierce) CORLEW; *Wilbur CORLEW b. 1851-1854, d. aft. 1920 in KS, a teamster and fur trapper.
Lewis was a bit older than James, about 45 in Sep 1864, and there is no evidence that he served in the Civil War.James served about ten months with Co. D, 27 WI Inf. Regt., but there is no evidence that he saw combat or even left the state.
Full citation for Hist. No. WI, a 1200-page compendium that would have included a chapter on Manitowoc Co.:
