In Reply to: Re: Cork/Yarrington-Union Co., Ohio by Harry Adamson of 183

From the Monona Iowa history about 1910
George Washington Cork born January 27, 1822
died May 21 1905
married February 22, 1844 in Union Co. Ohio
Miss Lydia Yarrington born September 15 1825
died June 9th 1898
daughter of Ephraim and Elizabeth(Hendricks)
Yarrington (natives of Pennsylvania)
Her parents were early settlers of Carroll Co. Ohio and moved to Union Co. Ohio about 1838. In 1853 they emigrated to Bureau Co. Illinois where they died ,the mother in 1857 and the father in 1870. In the spring of 1869, the Corks moved to Belvidere Twp. Monona County Iowa. They had 11 children-John N. born April 21 1845-died August 30 1858, James H. born June 12 1846, Thomas J. born November 6 1848, Frances M. born December 9 1851, Mary born August 13 1856, Eushia born August 9 1847, Solomon H. born January 20 1850, Theodore born May 18 1853,George W. born April 21 1858 died January 31 1908 at Souix City Iowa,William S. born December 3 1864, died January 9 1872, and Ephraim R. born Febuary 10 1864 and died December 7 1871--George and Lydia are buried in the Cork cemetery near Turin Iowa, Monona County NW1/4 section 15 in Belvidere township.
I believe Ephraim was a brother to John, and David( my deceased wife's GGgrandfather) and son of Alvah Yarrington and grandson of Abel Yarrington of Luzene Co. Pa. and originally from New London Conn.--Just can't prove it yet
