Richard Longfield Cornelius b. 1797
My cousin and I are researching our Cornelius-Shields family tree.We have been told that Richard Longfield Cornelius b. 1797 was a stepson or adopted son of Henry Cornelius b. 1766.If that is so, then his birth surname would be Richard Longfield.I have looked through a number of Longfield sites/family trees but can't find him listed.His mother, of course would be a Longfield - maybe an Elenor Lucas???Or possibly Catherine Connor who would then have had to marry a Longfield - which we doubt.
Could anybody out help us out?Thank you.
