I am looking for an obit on Cornelius Van Tassel. He died on either 12 Jan 1857 or 12 Jan 1859. In the 1850 census he resided in Springfield with his wife, Anna, and five of their children. I believe he came to La Porte in the mid 1830s or so, judging by the census records listing where his children were born. I read somewhere that he was buried in Pine Lake Cemetery, but I contacted the office and they have no records of his burial.
