Re: HENRY & SAMUEL CORSAUT OGLE CO., IL
I am a descendant of Benjamin Corsaut, b.1842, son of Henry and Rachel Fralick Corsaut. Benj, my great grandfather, was born Canada West and moved with family to Ogle Co, Ill about 1843. I did not know of a brother Samuel but the date fits. There was another brother, Charles. I know that some of the family went to Kansas. I have been researching this line for twenty years. We think the family goes back to one Jacque Cossart who came to New York from Holland in 1662. They were French Huguenots. Henry was a son of David and Catherine Vandercook Corsaut but we have not proven this as yet. Would be glad to share what I have if you would contact me at email@example.comI am delighted to find someone else who is working on this line. I went to Oregon, Ill about ten years ago to do research. Now live in Ames, Ia. Where are you, cousin?
