Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Daniel W Corwin {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Daniel W Corwin (Catherine Houston, Sarah, James, William) was born in Middletown, Orange Co, New York, June 19th 1825, to parents Catherine Houston and David Corwin.

Daniel married Mary Land January 13th 1852 in Wapello Co, Iowa.

The couple had at least two children:

  • Edwin M Corwin b. abt 1854 d. 24 Jan 1900 m. Elizabeth Meyer
  • Fred Land Corwin b. 8 Aug 1856 d. 29 May 1919 m. Frances H Smith

Not much is known about Daniel W Corwin. He was born in Orange Co, New York and at some point before 1852 made his way to Iowa. His father David was in Iowa about this same time. When Daniel died his probate packet contained 108 pages of mostly receipts and monies owed. (You can view it on Ancestry.com with a subscription) I'm unclear as to who all of the debt belonged to. There were many pages that referred to David Corwin, deceased, I suspect Daniel took over his father's debt.  At any rate, there does not seem to be a will. Daniel W Corwin died about 1861 in Eddyville, Mahaska Co, Iowa. He was 36 years old.

Mary Land Corwin died several years later, about 1867. Mary was also 36 years old at the time of her death.

The couple is buried in Highland Cemetery in Eddyville with Daniel's father David.

Much of this family remains a mystery.
