I am seeking information about the Kornegay family that owned a general store in the late 1890s or early 1900s in Mount Olive, NC. The man who owned this store could possibly be a relative. If you have any information about these Kornegays, please contact me. Thank you!

I noticed the DARDEN surname in your research and am interested in info on Elizabeth Darden born abt 1832. She may have lived in Sampson CO. Seems like I have seen the Kornegay name in my research. Your Dardens of indian descent? She married abt 1855 and may have been Cherokee.

Hello. i was just browsing and I came across the Kornegay name. My maternal grandfather was a Kornegay whose father was from Mt. Olive,NC. I have been trying to find info on him. His full name was John Giles Kornegay and his wife my great grandmother was a Sallie S. Heath or Sallie Heath S(?). I don't know if his family was in the general store business. He did move to Portsmout, VA but he is buried in Mt.Olive according to death records. If you have any info, I would be very appreciative. Sallie

I saw your post and I too am seeking information regarding the Kornegay family. Have you come across a J.G.Kornegay or John Giles Kornegay. I am trying to determine where he is buried and who his father was.

Thank,
Sallie

Sallie,

Sorry, I haven't come across John Giles or J.G. Kornegay in my research. What time frame are you searching for him in? Maybe I can help... If I find anything regarding him as I progress in my research I'll post it for you.

Thanks for answering my query. The dates that I have are 09/17/1861 till 03/27/1931. I am having a hard time finding information on him. I know that he lived in Portsmouth, VA for years and was buried in Mt. Olive and he was married to Sallie S. Heath and they had 2 grandchildren. One of them being my grandfather.
Thank you again for responding to my query.

If you don't have this already. I think the person you're looking for was located in Portsmouth Ward 5, Portsmouth City, Virginia in 1900 census. The family members listed are John C. Kornegay, Sallie S., John H. Kornegay, and Perry R. Kornegay. John is reflected as being born in NC in 1863. In the 1910 census Portsmouth Ward 5, VA are John G. Kornegay and the same family members. Are these the people that you're looking for? In 1920 Brogden (Wayne Co) there's a John G. Kornegay listed as the brother-in-law of Charles Spruill b. 1879 (sp. Martha) John G. is listed as widower in this census.

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

It appears that John Giles Kornegay may have been the son of Caleb Foreman R. Kornegay b. 1822 and Mantha Sarah Ann Prince. They were married March 30, 1858. Caleb, or C.F.R Kornegay as he is seen in the census records, was the son of John and Catherine Price Kornegay.

Do you know the names of John's siblings?
