  1. Sorry I missed Rachel’s talk but I live in Pensacola, Fl. Is the text available? I’ll be in Corinth for several days sometime between October 19th and 28th. Expect to spend several hours at your library researching my my Cole, Raymond, Eddy and other ancestors who were early settlers in Corinth and adjacent townships.

  2. There is no text of the talk available. We do have several items of local interest that you may find useful.

  4. Am researching my Cowles/Cole ancestors and Atwell/Fuller family and am wondering if Mable Shorey’s “Early History of Corinth Once Known as Jessup’s Landing” is the definitive source or are there other books out there?

  5. We have a two volume set of the Cowles Family geneology in our local history collection. It doesn’t circulate so you’ll have to use it when the library is open.
