Hi Tess, I can help you on this. You and I are cousin's. Fannie was the daughter of Mathew D Corn and Catherine Fletcher Corn. She and John Roark are buried in the Cornn Family Cemetery, off Cornn Cemetery Road in Keavy, Laurel County Kentucky. I've been there. Fannie's brother King Washington Cornn was my great grandfather. He and his wife Mary are also in this little family cemetery. Mathew D, their father moved his family from Hendersonville, NC just after the Civil War. The children of Mathew changed the spelling by adding an extra N in 1909-1911. Mathew was the son of Peter Corn and Mary "Polly" Jones. Peer was the son of John Peter Corn and Hannah Elizabeth Parr. They are buried at the Ebenezer Baptist Curuch in Hendersonville.

Her Name was Fannie Matilda Cornn ( or so we think it was spell there is a Cornn Family graveyard in Kentucky but the last names of Cornnn are spelled differently.) Fannie married a man by the name of John Matthew Roark. Can you help me out any?? Thanks so much.

Hi Gary, Wow I think this is fascinating! I just started doing this in May when my favorite Uncle passed away. I have the Roark family back to 1750 but was unable to find out any thing about my great grandmother but you sure have given me a lot of info. My mother was the baby of the family and really could not remember some of the elders names. Do you know why they added the extra "N" to the name? My mother was under the impression that Fannie had Indian blood in her? I know the Roarks did I wander if she has confused the two families. Do you have pictures? I have some of Fannie. I would love to share with you if I can figure out how to e-mail them. Love to hear from you and swap info. I may have to start a second volume to my mothers scrapbook. I am attempting to locate naturalization papers where applicable. I would like to trace back as far as I can. My e-mail address is TessRhodus@aol.com. Thank you so much for responding!

Thank you so much, please send me anything you have on them so I can complete my family tree. I was raised by my grandfather and mother and they were the greatest grandparent anyone could have. I missed them so much. They were my grandparents, parents and my best friends in the world. I am so excited that got this from you.
Were do you live?

Thank you again.

Paula, Thank you for responding to Fannie Cornn. I have come across the name of Ollie Cornn from Frankfort, Ky often and wondered how and if he was linked to my family. Since he came from Mercer Co., KY he is surely a decendent of Old George Corn who settled in Mercer County with five sons about 1778. He has a very large number of decendents in Mercer and on up into Indiana. Apparently Ollie added the the extra N to his Corn as my great grandfather and his brothers did back in early 1900's. Obediah used the spelling Corn as I have come across his name in my research also. Old George had sons, Timothy, Abraham, George, Solomon, Ebenezer. This should give you a direction to work from, Gary

On November 15, 1949 a 'Fannie May Corn' signed the Memorial Register for my grandfather, John Thomas Corn in Gainesville, HallCo, GA. Is this the same Fannie Corn and if so, how is she related to my grandfather? All info appreciated.
