Charles L. Corell
- Born November 26, 1883 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio
- Died October 4, 1940
- Married to Minnie R.
Keummerly (b March 14, 1883)
- Married to Pauline E xxx (b about 1888) with one
girl b 1915, and another girl b 1907 with a different last name.
Before 1930 he was always listed as Correll, but in 1930 he is listed
as Corell. Perhaps during the 1920s the family decided to change the
spelling of their last name?
- Married in 1939 to Amanda J Kind (b about 1881, d August
25, 1963). (All I really know, from family notes, is Charles married
Amanda Kind in 1939. I see an Amanda Kind married to William Kind in
1930, so perhaps Kind was a name from a previous marriage. I see an
Amanda J. Corell b 1881 d aug 25 1963 in Tuscarawas County in the SS
records. Wait a second ... Charles' brother Harry's wife's name was
Amanda J Marburger. Charles died in 1928. It's possible that these
are all the same Amanda, but then again, maybe they aren't. No,
Amanda J Correll shows up as a widow in Strasburg, Ohio with all her
children in 1930.)
In the 1900 census he was a boarder with the family of Thomas
Eblick in Dover, Tuscarawas, Ohio. His birthdate is given as Nov
1882. His occupation is illegible (Sfesning Lai). The family he is
boarding with all drills wells.
He first married to Minnie
R Keummerly, who died June 22, 1912. In 1910 Minnie's brother
William A Keummerly was living with them, with both Charles and
William hauling clay in a brickyard. They're living down the street
from Charles' brother Harry and
sister Estella, who live next door
to one another.
In 1920 he had remarried to Pauline and had two girls, the older
one age 13 and with a different last name. He's living in the same
place, still working as a clay wheeler in a brickyard.
In 1930 he was still married to Pauline, living with just the
youngest girl, and working as a salesman for a feed plant.
In 1939 he remarried to Amanda Kind, then he died the next year.
This is not the Charles Corell who played Andy on the early Amos
& Andy sitcom, and it's also not the recent actor by the same
index maintained by Bob Jenkins
