    Hi! I have uncovered some info on your Martha McCorkle-I still do not ha ve parents, but I am 99.99% certain that she is the sister of my 3rd Gre at Grandmother Mary McCorkle Cushman of Ft. Gaines GA, and of James Madis on McCorkle also of Ft. Gaines. I found James 1st-mainly because my Mary a nd her brotherJames both had sons they named Montreal. I cannot find anoth er male in the 1700's or 1800's in GA, with that 1st name and to have 2 bo rn in Ft Gaines, both to McCorkles-well! Obviously they are related. Ju st a week or so ago, I searched for McCorkle marriages in Early County a nd found your Martha and David! To further cinch my case-on the 1850 Alaba ma Census for Geneva, Mary McCorkle Cushman, now a widow and Martha McCork le Keith are living next door to each other and Martha has a son-James Mad ison!! These 3 have to be siblings-which makes us cousins! One puzzle th at really has me puzzled tho is that my Mary married William J. Allen-20 y ears her junior and a student/boarder living in David and Martha Keith's h ome! They moved to Milton, Santa Rosa Co, FL. Is he related to David's mot her's 2nd husband? And Mary's daughter Martha Catherine (aka Mary) Cushm an Kilpatrick and her brother Montreal are living in Angelina Co, TX in 18 60-with her husband and a family of Allens! Who are they? (Montreal was ki lled in the Civil War in 1864-leaving no children by his widowed wife) Ple ase contact me! I'll bet there are more clues that will lead us to the re st of this McCorkle family!
