Lois Wakefield

Dear Reader: Do you think you are related to the individuals listed in this post? Please drop me a note! I love hearing from cousins and others researching my family!

Today, July 11, is the anniversary of the death of my second great-grandmother, Lois Wakefield, in 1891. Here is what I know about her:

- She was born in Illinois in 1822
- She was married to Benjamin William Franklin Corley (we’ll learn more about him tomorrow)
- Together, Lois and Benjamin had 11 children, including my great-grandfather, Joseph Corley
- It appears Lois spent her entire life in Shelby County, Illinois

I haven’t spent a lot of time on this line and I haven’t been able to identify her parents yet.
