Laura, I hope you get this message. I think you are spelling the last name incorrectly. I think the name that you are researching is Corley. My name is Donna Brodie. My GGGG Grandmother was a slave. She gave birth to a Mulatto Slave, Alfred Brodie. They were slaves to John Wardlaw Brodie owner of Oak Grove Plantation, Kitchings Mills. (Aiken County) Corley's were neighbors. My GGG Grandfather Alfred (Mulatto) married Margaret Paulene Corley in the mid 1840's. Margaret's mother's name was Leah Corley and Her father's name was Harry Ginyard. Margaret did not carry her Father's name because she was born a slave. I am not sure of what descent Harry Ginyard was. Margaret and Alfred had 8 children. Here are a list of the children:

Furman Lawrence Brodie b. 1855
Gerorge Brodie b. 1854
Leah I. Brodie
Guy D. Brodie b. 1862 or 1863 (My GG Grandfather)
Judson A. Brodie 1864
Milledge Brodie
Margaret Paulene Brodie
Alfred J. Brodie Jr.

Now, there was a step-son, born to Margaret Pauline Corley prior to marrying Alfred Brodie. Margaret was 7 years older than Alfred. Her sons name was listed in the census as being Althie. (But who know, that may have been his nick-name.) Leah was listed as Lear. (I guess how they pronounced the names is how the census workers listed them.) Furman was listed as Jurman. (Go figure!) Any how, I am more than certain this information would be of value to you if you ever get it. I will pray that you receive this info! It has been some time since you posted this request.
