Terhune Family Genealogy Forum
My line of Terhunes descended from Cornelius include:
Archibald Alexander Terhune (1825-1891) who was named for the pastor of Abraham Terhune and Moycay Williamson (Cornelius' parents in NJ). He was a surgeon in the early part of the Civil War and had to stop active duty due to a lung ailment. He was then a Colonel in the Home Guard near Rome, Georgia (their home was "Laurel Isles" on the Etowah River) He married Mary Frances Ware in 1850.. I have his Civil War letters and muster roll. They moved from Georgia to Mobile AL to Jefferson TX. Mary Frances' ancestors included Ware, Penn, Taliaferro, Veal, Powell, and Boutwell lines. Cornelius' siblings were Albert (m. Rachel Pittenger), Samuel (m. Elizabeth Skillmen), Mary (m. Jacob Lane), John (m1. Etta Letson; m2. Mary J. Davidson), Mary (m. John Watterson), and Anne (m. Abraham De Witt). I don't have an 8th generation list, so these are all the Terhunes in Georgia that I know about. What else can you tell me about Cornelius (he was also a lawyer who helped the Cherokee recover some ponies stolen by the whites)?
