  • Name Levina CORY  [1, 2, 3, 4
    Born 15 Jun 1796  , , Pennsylvania, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 5, 6, 7, 8
    • Conclusion: With the exception of the Cory Society website, all sources point to Elizabeth being born in April 1799 so it would appear the reading from Levina's tombstone is either in error or the stone was carved in error.

      If Levina was born as late as 1804, she would have been on age 12 when she married and 13 when her first child was born. Even 1799 or 1800 would have made her being married at age 16/17 with her first child at 17/18. If she was worn as early as 1794, she would have been 22 when she married; if born 1796, married at age 20.

      Without more definitive proof, 1796 is the year I will be using for Levina as it fits into the family of her parents and into the years of her marriage to Andrew Richison.

      SOURCES for Birth date
      Grave marker originally read as age 35Y 2M 15D & would calc to b. 15 Jun 1799. Records for Elizabeth Cory, Levina's sister is also listed as 1799 so one must be wrong or they had to be twins and no evidence of that being the case has been found..

      Somerset Co., PA comes from the Thomas K. Cory 1809-1835 family tree on Ancestry with Scott P. Corey as the owner. Sent him an email but no answer so far.

      In look at Somerset Co., PA, found a query posted in 1996 by J. Ross Wiley which mentions George Richeson, b. abt 1775, father of Eliza Smith Richeson, wife of Hugh McCullough). The email sent to Wiley bounced.

      The Cox-Kirts-DuChane-Yochum Family tree on Ancestry gives Eliza Smith Richeson's parents as George Richeson 1781-1865 and Rebecca Gibson 1782-1856. Nothing further on George.

      Many sources and indexes incorrectly give 18 July 1816 as the marriage date for this couple but this return by the minister clearly states it was actually 27 June 1816 when they were married.
      Even though this is a clerk's copy into a record book and was obviously not the first recording of the event, it clearly indicates a date of the marriage while also showing the July date which is probably the date it was recorded. It also show how easily an indexer could have picked up the incorrect date and overlooked the actual date.

      **[The Xenia notebook said 35y rather than 38y but that would have calculated to a birthdate of 15 Jun 1799 and her sister, Elizabeth was born 23 Apr 1799 so 35y is impossible if Elizabeth and Lavinia are sisters.]
