Trying to explain my genealogy to others is a bit confusing as the Cornett lines seem to intertwine. A family member once told me that my grandmother Lucia R. Cornett married another Cornett (Walter Allen Cornett), so I have two different Cornett lines just based on my grandparents alone! So to start out, my father was Billy Edward Cornett > Walter Allen Cornett and Lucia R. Cornett (my grandparents) > Walter Allen Cornett's parents are Wiley Cornett and Izora Parks Cornett (My Great Grandparents on my Grandfathers side) > On Lucia Cornett's side, her parents are Stuart Marvin Monroe Cornett and Gincy Malinda Caroline Long. (My Great Grandparents from Lucia)
The images below show a flowchart of sorts of my family tree that I have filled in so far based on family research and documents that were given to me so many years ago. I hope the flowchart makes some sense to those of you who may be curious as to how I may be related to the Cornett families of Grayson County, Virginia and also of Letcher and Perry County, Kentucky. I believe these places are where my ancestors may have settled. Granted, the flowchart doesn't show all siblings and their children, so this is a very basic flowchart just to give you an idea of sorts. The only discrepancy I noticed was in the last flowchart where it shows Mary Hicks and James Cornett as William Cornett's parents- the dates are all wrong and don't mesh with the rest of the tree itself. So please disregard that part of the tree; hopefully the rest is pretty accurate.
I welcome any comments and look forward to them!
