I'm looking for information about James CORBETT and Evaline (Evelina/Evelyn) Glasgow, who lived in Bureau County in the 1850s and possibly beyond. They were likely born in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania; James in about 1803 and Evaline in about 1816. They were married in 1839 and had their first child, Sara (Sarah?) Susan CORBETT, in 1840 in Newton Hamilton, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.

They moved to Bureau County, Illinois, before 1850. Sara Susan was married to a John Allen COOK in Princeton, Bureau County, in 1860, and they moved to Richardson County, Nebraska shortly thereafter. I don't know whether her parents also went to Nebraska or stayed in Bureau.

The last known whereabouts of the Corbetts that I have comes from the 1850 Census for Bureau County, which lists James and Evaline Corbett and three children. Any additional information anyone may have would be appreciated.

I have james in a directory in primceton as late as 1877. His son has a bio in a book that lists james' death as 23 may 1878. It doesnt give a place.
