Corrington / Corenton in Branch and Hillsdale Counties, Michigan

Classification: Query
Surnames: Corrington Corinton Corenton Thomas Baker Hawkins Wisner Philo Mudge
There was a Joseph Corrington / Corenton who's children lived in Branch Co. MI. This is a tough line to follow, mainly because of the surname spelling variations in most documents. One document's handwriting looks like the first name is Jas. or Jos, but is transcribed as Jas.

Joseph was b. 1805 in NY and appears to have had one daughter, Ann, b. 1851, MI (m. H. Wisner, then Geo. Philo) and dies in 1906 Coldwater, Branch, MI, buried at Quincy Cemetery.

Two other possible children or nieces/nephews are:
John Corrington, b. 1830, MI, father: Joseph, mother: Rebecca. d. 1869, Blue Lake, Muskegon, MI.
Matilda Corinton m. Enoch Mudge, son Wm (b. 1855) dies in 1869, Blue Lake, Muskegon, MI.

Jos./Jas Corrington/ Corenton married Mrs. Ellana Thomas, about 1855, most likely in the area of Reading, Hillsdale, MI. He died between 1873 and 1880. She then moved in with her son, Newell Thomas and died in Sherman, Newaygo, MI, in 1886 under the name of Ellana Corenton. No burial place found.

Ellana Thomas was the widow of Chauncey Thomas, of Reading, MI. Her maiden name is listed as Hawkins on her son's death record and Baker on her daughter Lucinda (Thomas) Baker's death record. It is most likely Hawkins.
