Andrew Coryell, who had been in poor health for some time, was taken suddenly ill at the dinner table on Monday and died soon afterwards. He was the son of the late John Coryell, and had been a resident of Pulteney the greater part of his life. He was 81 years of age. He leaves one son, S W Coryell. He was a highly esteemed citizen and a large number of his friends and neighbors gathered at his funeral on Wednesday.
John Coryell was born in New Jersey, April 27, 1796. He was son of David and Charity Coryell, who were natives of the same place. The name Coryell is of French origin. His mother’s ancestors came from Holland.
His father removed with his family to Seneca Co. NY 1802 where they resided until 1812, and settled in the town of Pulteney, Steuben Co.
John is third son of a family of ten children, and he and Andrew, who
resides in Michigan, are the only surviving ones. He was reared on a farm,
and early learned habits of industry and economy, having limited opportunities
for an education.
Oct 18, 1815, he married Mary, daughter of John and Margaret Ellis, who settled on the farm where Me. Coryell now resides, in 1806. Soon after his marriage he purchased a portion of the land that his father had bought of the Pulteney estate, and continued to reside on this farm until 1843, when he removed to his present residence.
Their children are: William; Andrew; John; Mrs. John Garner of White Lake, Mich; David; Mrs. Josiah Nevyns of Pulteney; Josiah; George; Joseph, killed in the army, near Fredericksburg during the late Rebellion; Mrs. Andrew Dunlap (deceased) of Clinton Co, Mich.. The mother died Nov 18, 1837. Mr. Coryell married for his second wife Mrs. Waddell, daughter of John and Isabell McAnally. Her father was a soldier in the war of 1812, and died while in service.
By her first husband, Mrs. Coryell had seven children, six of whom are
living. Of this union were born James H and Chattie. Mr. Coryell has ever
been a member of the Whig and Republican parties, and although not active
as such, an unswerving member of those parties; and a noteworthy fact is,
that all of his sons and stepsons are of the same political principles.
He had been a member of the Presbyterian Church of Pulteney for nearly
sixty years, and an elder of the same for some fifty years, and both his
wives were also members of the same church. He has always been ready to
contribute to church and kindred interests, and a supporter of good society.
