Are you referring to Elizabeth Cordell that married Samuel Funk? If so her parents were
George Edward Cordell 1742 to 1826 and her
mother was Catherine Basye b:1752. I have
listed 11 children in that family including
my ancestor who was Presley Cordell 1779 -
1849. He his wife both died in St.Louis
Co. MO. as I have a copy of the will for him.
Elizabeth Presley's mother also died in the
St. Louis Co. area. From what I gather her
husband George E. died back east and she came
west with George E's brother John and his wife Judy plus some of her children. Is this
the family you're looking for?

I believe the cordells you are looking for
went first to ohio then on to Schuyler county
(rushville) Il. Alexander Cordell and wife Diana
cawilson coprdell came from Loudoun
L county va via ohio in 1830/40 with a large
ffamily.If I am not mistaken Elizabeth
was one of his children.
Also I am thinking the Scott county alluded
to in a reply is actually Iowa ( Davenport)
which is reasonly close. I believe we may be
related thru adoption
as Thomas Walter Cordell (son of
Lafayette cordell and parmelia vail)
gandson of alexander and diana
adopted my grandmother.
Thomas Walter cordell married Mary Olive Morgan
and had no children other that I know of.
For first hand info I suggest you try Schuyler
and Mcdonough co. Il Genweb
Thom Cameron
Rock Island IL.
