I've been trying very hard on this, my great grandfather. I know his father, Asa Corwin was born between 1790 and 1800 in either Scotland or Ohio. He married Nancy P Gillespie 15 Jul 1820 and they had Asa in 1832. They may have had some other children too--Jane, Martha and John. Asa was born in Butler Co Oh, in 1832, he married Anna Brook or Bruck who was born in MD(4 Jan 1840) in about 1858. They had several children including my grandfather. Asa went off to the civil war and was hurt in some way and received a pension. My grandfather William N Corwin was born in Mineer, IL. They were in Missouri in 1870. They then moved to NE at which time Asa abandoned his family. They then moved to MO. Fred and Alice ended up living with some people named Kitchingman in NE and Grandpa lived with Nathaniel and Eva Wells as a laborer. He later married their niece, my grandma, Jennie Cox. Asa went to Washington state where he married Mary E Church, where he had 6 more children including Benton Corwin. Asa died after Jun 9, 1900 and April 1903 when Mary E Beede Church remarried John S Stout. I assume he died in South Bend City where he was living in 1900.~~Jane Councilman Weaver~~17 Aug 2011
