I just found this post. I am new to ancestry.com. My name is Pat Hackett. Pathackett52@gmail.com
. John V. Is my great great great grandfather. I would love to know more about him and the entire Corell family. I knew John was a wood worker from Germany. I didn't know what town they came from. Did John serve in the Civil War? I found from the 1870 census that he was a private in the army. There is a story in the family that some Corell fought at Gettysburg?
