62. John Adam CORRELL
was born about 1739. In a DAR letter they refer to this John Correll as being
born in or before 1755 since he was over 45 in the 1800 census. He died in 1829.
This John Correll may not be the son of Adam Correll. If not, then none of the
following applies to him. See the notes on Adam Correll. I'm not completely convinced
either way. Adam and his sons John and Jacob did move to Rowan County, North
Carolina, after the war. In all likelihood they were at least related.
John Correll of Lancaster PA served in the 4th Battalion of Lancaster County under Captain Conrad Weubtze's Company. Some notes say he was a Private 4th class in 1783, but payslips list him as a Sergeant in 1778 and 1783. John shows to have enlisted in the army on 2/13/1778. John received a land grant on Buffalo Creek, Rowan County, North Carolina. He sold the land in 1794 and removed to Iredell County, North Carolina. John is listed as Sgt., 5 CL. in the Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution 1775-1783 by John H. Gwathmey, published in 1938. Also listed were Dudley Correll 12 CL., and William Correll Pvt., WD. Wm. Correll was listed as executor on John's will. I lists him as "friend". There are two dates listed which could be significant. 3/9/1829 is the date of his will. 1786 is when he moved to Rowan County. ( Alternate spelling KORRELL) He was married to Mary Ann TOWNSEND about 1779 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Somewhere it was assumed that he was married in Rowan County in 1786. He evidently was already married and had a son before he moved there.
63. Mary Ann TOWNSEND was born about 1760 in Pennsylvania. She died
in 1852 in Illinois. Children were:
i. John Adam CORRELL Junior was born about 1780 in Pennsylvania. He died in 1841 in Illinois. According to a note in Hazel's data, he fought in the war of 1812.
ii. David CORRELL.

31 v. Mary Ann CORRELL.
