Carl Korn was the original immigrant ancestor of our American Korns family, and is believed to be a son of Michael and Anna Elizabetha (Huy) Korns. He arrived on the ship "Edinburg" on September 19, 1752, and died circa 1778. His wife's name was Otillia. He resided in Maxatawney Township, Berks County, Pa. and reared a family of seven children, namely, Catherine, Charles, Jr., Michael, Jacob, Daniel, Henry, and Magdalena. It is believed that most of his descendants now use the "Korns" surname; however it may be possible that some of his son Daniel's descendants have retained the original "Korn" family name. One of the documents relating to Carl Korn that we do not have is the German language Keylbach will that was wittnessed by Carl Korn in Berks County in 1760.
The descendants of Catherine (Korn) Hoyman/Heilman and her husband Christian Hoyman/Heilman are given in the 486 page 1993 book "Some Notes, Quotes and Quips of the Hoyman Clan and Related Lines" by David L. Baldwin, Gateway Press, Baltimore MD, Library of Congress card catalog no. 93-78287.
