1. Jennings, Norma. Email (njennings@iowatelecom.net) 18 May 2003. "My gg-grandfather was WALTER McCORKLE (1821-1852), last of Washington Co., IA who married CATHERINE PERKINS in 1842 in Hendricks Co., IN. I am fairly certain Walter McCorkle descended from the John McCorkle & Elizabeth Ruth family but cannot pinpoint his parents with any certainty. I have many ancestors that go back to Augusta County, Virginia." Reference her website at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~lcgs/mccorkle_family_news.htm.
