Norman L. (Cory) Corey
Still some debate on whether Norman was s/o Jesse or not. Surely the VT/NH issue is one that can be debated ad nauseum, but it does also offer the possibility that Norman was NOT a son of Jesse, but of a relationship of a different kind. Surely connected, as the Plainfield, NH/Windsor, VT lines always tend to be, but perhaps not a son, but, a nephew?
The Corey/Cory line is quite complex at the end of the 18th Century in that area of New England. LIKELY most of the name came up the Connecticut River Valley from Plainfield, CT, as did so many of the early settlers of Sullivan County, NH and its neighboring counties (including those in VT).
1850 US Census for Plainfield, Sullivan Co, NH:
Norman L., 29, m, farmer, b. VT?
Lucy A., 22, f, b. VT?
Laura D., 3, f, b. NH
Sumner, 1, m, b. NH
NOTE: The fact that Norman was b. VT doesn't remove the possibility of being son of Jesse, as the family often moved back and forth, as did most Plainfield families, to Windsor County, VT, and state lines also moved back in those days. In fact, in 1880 Census, whereas Lucy had also listed VT in 1850/60, she lists NH as state of birth.
