William Henry Korns Family Documents

The scanned images below were provided by William Lester "Bill" Korns, son of J. Roderic Korns, and Grandson of William Henry Korns. In regards to these images, Bill wrote "Those were pages from an 1874 Bible that my Grandmother read every day, and passed on to my folks."

According to page 88 of the 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania", William Henry Korns was the son of Solomon & Mary Elizabeth (Finck) Korns. A biography of William is provided on pages 89 & 90 of the Korns book.

I have typed up the information on these pages, to the best of my ability at reading the longhand writing. The first page, above, states "That Wm H. Korns and Roberta Stalcup were united by me Rev. Humphrey in Holy Matrimony at Unionville, Mo. on the 26th day of June in the year of our Lord 1884...".

The second page, above, indicates the following births: "Infant son born November 20th 1887 at Unionville Mo."; "Roena (Rowena) was born in ??? ??? Tekamah, Nebraska on the 18th day of March 1889."; Rodric (J. Roderic) was form in Tekamah, Nebraska on July 24th, 1890", and "Agnes Roberta was born May 4th, 1905, at 921 East Eleventh South street, Salt Lake City Utah.".

The third page, above, indicates the following marriages and births: "J. Roderic Korns was wedded to Miss Sara Beck Merrill in Salt Lake City, January 30, 1917."; "Rowena Korns married to Charles Arthur Maly February 19-1928 at house of her mother 562 6th ave Salt Lake City, Utah. Karla Rowena born March 25, 1929 to Charles Arthur and Rowena Korns Maly in Salt Lake City Utah.:"; "James Roderic was born Jan. 20, 1918 to J. Roderic and Sara Beck Merrill Korns in Salt Lake City."; "William Lester was born Nov. 18, 1922 to J. Roderic and Sara B M Korns in Salt Lake City, Utah."; "Karla Rowena Maly was married to Maxwell Bernard Olsen Jr Oct. 1 1948 in Salt Lake City Utah". The spelling "Merrill" was confirmed in an e-mail from William Lester "Bill" Korns in March of 2008; he wrote "Mom's name was Sara Beck Merrill...... father Lester Merrill Mother Matilda Beck Merrill.... born in Salt Lake City, Utah July 15, 1898". This corrects the spelling error "Marrill" on page 90 of the 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania".

The fourth page, above, indicates the following deaths: "Infant son died at Unionville Mo on November 22nd 1887 aged 2 days"; "Agnes Roberta December 23, 1900 aged 4 years, seven months and 19 days."; "William H. Korns died March 29th 1922 aged 59 years eleven months and 22 days "born April 7, 1862""; Charles Arthur Maly (husband of Rowena Korns) passed away March 14 1946 12:20 am in S.L.C. aged 66 (born Dec 2-1879)"; "Roberta Stalcup Korns passed on July 1946 in Salt Lake City Utah aged ?? Years"; "J. Roderic Korns passed on July 2 1949 in Salt Lake Ciry Utal aged 59 years".

The fifth page, above, (which may not be from the same book, I'm not sure) includes the following information: "Peary ???? Stalcup Born 1834 Died 1916-"; Rowena Baugh?? Stalcup born Born 1838 - Died 1915"; "The above, father and mother of Roberta Stalcup Korns, who was married June 26th 1884 at Unionville Missouri"; Wm Henry Korns was born in Illo. April 7, 1862. Roberta Stalcup Korns was born at Hartford, Putnam county, Missouri January 29-1866-"
