Cornett Research Inquiry

The following message is from a fellow researcher seeking information on the Cornett surname.

 If anyone has a copy of a Petition, filed in the 1860's in VA by two daughters of James and Polly Rankin Cornett against their half-brother and sister, David Blue Cornett (married Phebe Sutherland) and Sarah Cornett Shuler (think she married John Kendrick Shuler), I presume for land as their father, James, died without a Will in 1851 in Rockbridge, Greene Co., Il (but there is no record of him being buried there), please contact me at dorisjoann1@yahoo.com.  Thank you.

If you, my readers, have any information, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, please respond to the above email address. 

Thank you for your help in this matter :)

We are also seeking a Mae Berting who had the following email address back in 2002 but apparently she is no longer working in the school system according to the School Superintendent.
Any help in locating her or getting in contact with her would be wonderful, as the petition spoken about in the above email message is very important. It may be the only document in existence that we know of that will prove who David "Blue" Cornett's parents really were. We think that Mae now lives in the Asheboro or Greensboro area in North Carolina. bertinm@guilford.k12.nc.us
