--------------------

(Witness) History: Daniel Cornelius witnessed Here is one version of the Cornelius name taken from CORNELIUS ROOTS AND SHOOTS by G. G. 'Jay' Cornelius-5358 Filbert St.-Paradise, CA 95969 (1993).

'The Cornelius family name goes back at least to 300 BC when it was recorded that there were sixteen clans, or houses, of his family name. They were members of the noble families of the Roman Republic. During the Punic Wars, each of these Cornelius groups adopted an additional name that identified each separate house or clan. This practice was apparently discontinued some time later.

Eggerton's book FAMOUS BATTLES, shows that Cornelius families produced some well noted Punice War Gererals. Cneius Cornelius Scipio and his brother Publius Cornelius Scipio both Roman Gnerals, were killed in separate battles in Spain during the conflict with the armies of Hannaibal in 211 B. C. Publius had a son also named Publius who, like his father, became a Roman General. He participated in the conquest of Spain and a few years later also engaged Hannibal's Army in Africa and defeated him at Zama in 202 BC. Publius Cornelius was then considered a military genius and was given the honoray title of Publius Cornelius Scipio 'Africanus'. Later records show a Roman Commander Cornelius, but the house of Clan name 'Scipio' is omitted as is also the honorary title 'Africanus' Julius Caesar's first wife was Cornelia Cornelius Cinna, whom he married in 83 BC. She was the daughter of a wealthy general Lucius Cornelius Cinna. A year later they were divorced due to the insistence of Cornelia's uncle and her dowry was returned to her.

England was invaded by the Roman Legions of Julius Caesar in 55 BC. This was the beginning of the Roman Conquest, an occupation that lasted almost five hundred years. It seems reasonable to assume that a few Roman Cornelius families first arrived in England during that period.

Another interesting bit of ancient history in which the Cornelius family appears was found in the book 'All Pompeii The City Rediscovered'. Pompeii was a resort city of wealthy Romans, located near the base of Mt. Vesuvius, not far from the present day city of Naples, Italy. On 24 Aug. 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted and devastated the entire city of Pompeii, covering it with several feet of volcanic ash and sulphur fumes. The old city has been under excavation for many years. Many of the old original structures that were not destroyed by the precedding earthquake have been found to be intact, still standing with furniture, pictures and statues all in place. Archaeologist have identified many of the old structures also, including the owners and occupants of some of the dwellings at the time of the eruption. One such owner listed of particular interest was a Publius Cornelius Tages along with a picture of his old excavated house. His first name and family name are same as those of the two Roman Gererals previously mentioned but the house or clan name is different, indicating that he was undoubtedly a member of another Cornelius house or clan.

The following was copied in part from the 'Pompeii Book': 'House of Ephebe, exccavated in 1925, was the property of the rich citizen Publius Cornelius Teges, who had embellished his dwelling with Greek and Hellenistic works of art amont which was a splendid bronze Ephebe from which the house derives its name.....'

In 251 AD, a Saint Cornelius was named Pope of Rome. Two years late a dissident group influenced the Emperor to have him banished and martyered in 253 AD.(for which he was later canonized). No records were found of the Cornelius family name for the period described as the 'Dark Ages', which began soon after the fall of the Roman Empire in 476 AD and lasted until around the middle of he 15th Century. There is some evidence that there were at least a few Cornelius families in England during the religious persecutions of the 17th Century, and that some of them migrated to Holland during that era. This suggests a solution to apparent conflicts in genealogical research where one source shows a Cornelius born in England but another source shows that he migrated to America from Holland. Other records show a Cornelius coming directly from England, and others coming from Germany. Another History of the Cornelius name.

The name Cornelius, as a family name, is one of the oldest on genealogical records, dating as it does to 212 BC. The Latin meaning of the name is 'HORN', seems to typify the sturdy indomitable characteistics of the family-- Unlike many family names as Stevenson, Olson, Johnson and others, that have from generation to generation changed or modified their spelling, the name of Cornelius has never varied in its spelling, althought it is posssible that such names as Cornelis and Cornell, etc are varieties of the same name. It is, however, a significant fact that every branch of the family has the same tradition of Roman or Italian origin, while the Crest and coat of Arms point directly to Rome and the Crusades, for the earliest of the name known were soldiers and the family undoubtedly spread over Europe at the time of the Roman Conquest, and to this day we find families of he name Cornelius in Italy, France, Sweden, Germany, Holland,England, and Scotland. In Josephus, the first historical mention we have of the name is Peblius Cornelius, 218 to 212 BC, when Marcus Turius Camillus, who was a General in the Roman Army chose Peblius Cornelius for his second in Command. Camillus fought against Hannibal in Italy, and Peblius Cornelius was sent to Spain to fight against Hasdrubel, the brother of Hannibal and was killed in battle, 212 BC. We gleam from the 'The Social Wars of Rome' that in 90 BC Pompey sent 5 Roman Legions under the joint leadership if Marius and Cornelius Sulla. Cornelius Sulla Afterwards conquered the Insurgents in Rome in 88 BC and after the election of the Consul left at once for Greece. Later in 54 BC he was with the armies of Ceasar in the invasion of Britain and it is reported that he remained in Britain. His son Faustus Cornelius, at the Siege of Jerusalem in 64 BC, was the first man over the wall, leading his men. (See 'Wars by the Jews' in Josephus, pg 614, also 'Antiquities of the Jews' pg 413)

Mention is also made of Cornelius, son of Cereo, as a trusted messenger of Claudius Ceasar Germanius. Caius Cornelius was questor, or Secretary , of the Treasury in Rome under Julius Caesar BC 45. Corneliius, the brother of Longrid, is mentioned in the first great famine about this time. In AD 37 to 41 we have the account of Cornelius the Centurian, who was commander of the Italian Cohort at Caeserea, as the first Gentile convet to Christianity. Plutarch tells us in the 'Life of Marcellus', that when Tiberus was Consul, he selected Cneius Cornelius as his protege. Marcellus succeeded Pontius Pilae as Consul. There was a Cornelius, Fourth Bishop of Antioch, the third City of Rome, AD 167. The next mention of the name is that of 'Cornelius, Bishop of Rome'called the 21st Pope. He was exiled and probably martyred AD 253. We find frequent mention of the name in early English history.

In 1559 John Cornelius, a welshman and Jesuit Priest, was executed by the Archbishop of Canterbury for alleged treason. More later. Chances are good that Cornelius ancestors are deserters from the Roman army that was in England. I find many Cornelius that I have researched come from England or Holland. (TJM).  There is about 90% chance that this Daniel Cornelius belongs to this John and came back from England or he belongs to John's father Aaron. (Both John and Aaron had sons named Daniel).

Philemon Plummer

Philemon Plummer was born Feb. 22, 1802 in Kentucky, and died Apr. 22, 1855 in Illinois. Philemon was the son of an Englishman named Joseph Plummer, Sr. and his wife, Mary Cash. Born in Kentucky in 1802, Philemon was named in honor of his paternal grandfather who arrived in America from England during Colonial times. Philemon's grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War before setting off with his family to become pioneers in Kentucky. They then moved on to St. Louis, which was a small but growing town located on the eastern edge of what was known as the Louisiana Territory. The United States had purchased the land from France in 1803, but Missouri did not become a state until 1821. Few settlers populated the countryside surrounding St. Louis when the Plummers arrived. After a few years there, Philemon's family moved north to Lincoln County, Missouri. They purchased land on a bluff located about a mile west of King's Lake in Lincoln County, not far from the Mississippi River. Philemon married Mrs. Mary (nee Duckworth) Gordon (1812-1898) of Tennessee on Christmas Eve 1826 in nearby St. Charles County, Missouri. He was a farmer in Lincoln County, and they were the parents of 6 children.

A book published in 1888 entitled "History of Lincoln County, Missouri"* describes a grim chapter in Philemon's life that took place in the late 1830's. The tragic events forever changed the lives of all those involved. A violent family dispute erupted on 22 Apr 1839 over an insulting remark supposedly made by a slave woman and her offspring towards Philemon's children. The slaves were owned by the children's grandfather, Joseph Plummer, Sr. Philemon's children returned home from their grandfather's house and reported the insult to their father. They also noted that Philemon's sister, Anna Barker, had "supported the abuse." Philemon, accompanied by 2 of his children who had been present when the situation occurred, went to his father's house and demanded that the slave woman be whipped. His father refused. Just as Philemon was about to punish the woman himself, his sister intervened and attempted to stop him physically. Their brother, Joseph, came running up to the scene with a stone in his hand, ready to defend his sister. Anna freed herself from Philemon's grip and grabbed a nearby pioneer pitchfork that was described as "a sapling about 7 feet long, and about as thick as one's wrist, with one end split to form the prongs." Philemon wrenched the tool from his sister's hands and struck his brother with it. Joseph died of head wounds suffered in the heated exchange.

Philemon was indicted towards the end of April for the murder of his brother. Their father, Joseph, Sr., sent another son to deliver bail money in order to obtain Philemon's release before the trial. Adding even more grief to the situation, descendants later reported that this brother was murdered and robbed of the large amount of cash he was carrying while on his way to post bail. Philemon was convicted of manslaughter in the third degree for the death of his brother, Joseph, Jr. An appeal was filed, and the case was defended by Edward Bates, a well-known attorney of the day. [Bates later ran for president against Abraham Lincoln.] The appeal went all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court, but failed to overturn the conviction. Philemon was ordered to serve the 3 years in the Missouri State Penitentiary to which the lower court had originally sentenced him. After his release, Philemon and Mary moved across the Mississippi River to Calhoun County, Illinois in 1843. By 1850, they had a farm there and 4 of their children still lived at home. At the time of his death in 1855, Philemon was 53 years and 2 months old. He was buried near the top of the hill in Plummer Carrico Cemetery. His stone faces the nearby Mississippi River, rather than the rest of the cemetery. He was survived by his wife, Mary, who remarried in 1858 or 1859. She died in 1898 and was buried next to him.

Children of Philemon Plummer and Mary (Duckworth) Gordon Plummer Goodwin (3 daughters, 3 sons) were-Ruth Jane (Plummer) Cochran, William Henry Plummer, Elizabeth B. (Plummer) Lewis, John Benton Plummer, James Phillip (Philemon) Plummer, and Mary Ellen Plummer Bull. Philemon's known siblings were-Anna (Plummer) Barker and Joseph Plummer, Jr.

(Note: A Biographical sketch of William Henry Plummer - WILLIAM HENRY PLUMMER has a fine farm of two hundred and eighty acres of land, four miles south west of Hardin in Gilead Precinct, and is classed amongst the most industrious and skillful members of the farming community of this county. He is a native of Missouri, and was born in Lincoln County, April 24, 1832. His father, Philemon Plummer, was born in Kentucky, February 14, 1802, while his grandfather, Joseph Plummer, was a native of England. Philemon Plummer, the great-grandfather of our subject, was also of English birth and came to America from his native land in Colonial times. He fought in the Revolution, became a pioneer of Kentucky and later of Missouri, where death closed his earthly pilgrimage in his home in Lincoln County. The grandfather of our subject came to this country with his parents, and settled in St. Louis County, Mo., in early pioneer days. At that time St. Louis was but a village and the surrounding country was very sparsely inhabited. In a few years Mr. Plummer moved to Lincoln County where he bought land and spent the rest of his life. The father of our subject was young when his parents moved to Missouri, and he was there reared and married, taking as his wife Mary D. Gordan a native of Tennessee. She now makes her home with our subject. Philemon Plummer continued to live in Missouri till 1843, when he came to this county and cast in his lot with the pioneers of Gilead Precinct. He bought land and entered upon its improvement but his busy life was cut short by his death in 1855, when a useful pioneer was removed from the scene of his labors.

William H. Plummer was eleven years old when he accompanied his father and mother to this county and he remembers well the incidents of pioneer life here. He recollects when deer, turkey and other kinds of game were plentiful. There was but little improved land in this county, as the people were chiefly engaged in lumbering, hunting and fishing. Our subject early became inured to the labors of farm life while assisting his father to carry on his agricultural affairs. Mr. Plummer resided with his parents till his marriage in 1853, when Louisa Lewis became his wife. She died in 1855, and he was married a second time, taking as his helpmate Sarah Wilkerson who died in 1870. The present marriage of our subject, which took place in 1878, was to Sarah (Ramsey) Haynes. Their pleasant wedded life has been blessed to them by the birth of eight children, whom they have named James Clifford, William, Louisa, Clara, Charles, Cleveland, Rosa and Ray. By his first marriage Mr. Plummer had one child - Stephen, who resides in Columbus, Cherokee County, Kan. Mary, Mr. Plummer's daughter by his second marriage, is the wife of Jonas Ward, of Belleview Precinct. Mrs. Plummer had one child by her first marriage - Cyrus Haynes. Mr. Plummer is a stanch Democrat in politics. He is a man of sturdy excellent character who is relied upon in all cases and is held in high esteem by the entire neighborhood.)
