[NOTE: Many of the records for the McCorkell family were in the form of documents passed down through various family lines. ALSO, special appreciation is noted here for the generosity of Jane (McCorkle) Ledermann of Wichita, KS, who provided extensive information on George McCorkle/McCorkell's siblings.]
