Jacob Correll
of Cold Water Creek,
 Rowan County, North Carolina


Study of Jacob Correll of Cold Water Creek revealed proofs of several of his siblings, namely Philip (married Sophia Schollenberger) (1, 2),  John Adam (married Margaret)(3), and William (married Matholine Paulus) (2). Mary Correll (married Gerhart Schollenberger, brother of Sophia) was likely a sister.

Although, no definitive connection has been found to link Jacob of Cold Water Creek to Jacob and Elizabeth of Dutch Buffelow Creek, it is quite possible that we are talking about the same man. There is one deed that comes quite close to a link, naming both Adam and Jacob Correll before 1790 to set aside land for Savitz Church (later Mt. Zion) (4):

1789 June 1 between John Lytaker of the county of Rowan and State of North Carolina to Conrad Sloop, Jacob Bostian, Adam Correll and Jacob Correll, Elders and Trustees for the United German Congregation of Presbyterians and Lutherans near George Savitz of the other part... for 4 pounds on waters of Cold Water Creek beginning at a post oak Robert Sims corner and runs with his line South 3oE 10 chains to a small post oak sapling on sd Simms line thence S89oW 4 ch to a small black oak sapling thence N3oW 10 ch to a black oak sapling thence to beginning containing 4 acres...

In a separate document, I presented proof that Jacob of Cold Water Creek was the father of John Correll (husband of Elizabeth Castor). Inscribed on John Correll's headstone at Savitz Church Cemetery in China Grove is

It can be inferred from John's year and place of birth that Jacob Correll of Cold Water Creek moved from Berks County, Pennsylvania to Rowan County, North Carolina, after 1788. Jacob's brother, Philip, stated in his Revolutionary War Pension Application that he (Philip) moved from Berks County to Rowan County, North Carolina, in about 1795 (2). Philip also stated he had a brother, William Correll, of Lincoln County, North Carolina. Philip and Jacob lived on Cold Water Creek on land formerly owned by Samuel and Andrew Cochran.

Jacob Correll of Cold Water Creek was on the 1790 US Census of Rowan County, which suggested that he moved to Rowan County immediately after the birth of his eldest son John Correll.

The extant record is semi-alphabetical, and nearest-neighbor analyses of the entries sheds some light on the location of these families. For example, John Stirewalt and John Josey were in the same alphabetical group containing Adam Correll and Peter Corl, corroborating the deed records of  John Adam Correll of Dutch Buffelow Creek and Peter Corl of Dutch Second Creek.  John Correll was not in the same 1790 alphabetical census grouping as the other Corrells/Corls. George Eagle and Robert Woods were in the same group as John Correll, suggesting that this was John Correll of Dutch Buffelow Creek.

George Savitz, Sr, George Savitz, Jr, Nicholas Beaver, Jacob Deal, and Andrew McClennahan were in the same 1790 census group as Jacob Correll, which is evidence that Jacob was on Cold Water Creek by 1790.  A discussion of the deeds will solidify the case for this Jacob Correll who purchased land from George Savitz, Sr on Cold Water Creek.

Samuel and Sarah Woods Cochran lived on 446 acres on Cold Water Creek. In his will of 1772, he divided the farm for sons Samuel, James and daughter Sarah, and son-in-law, Andrew McClenahan. Another son, Andrew Cochran, received adjoining lands from his father. These lands were on McCutcheon's Creek, a branch of Cold Water Creek, which flowed along the inside eastern line of Samuel Cochran's farm.

Jacob Correll came to possess about 244 acres in two parcels of 100 and 144 acres, formerly Andrew and Samuel Cochran's property on Cold Water Creek. Jacob's land adjoined Andrew McClenahan's portion of his father-in-law's farm, which was sold to Adam Casper. How Jacob came into possession of these parcels is not known, although it must have been by 1790. He sold this land to Philip "his brother" in 1793 (1).

Jacob Correll purchased another two parcels of 129 and 300 acres from George Savitz in 1795 (5, 6). The smaller parcel was a division of the larger tract of 279 acres with Henry Savitz owning the other piece. Philip Correll witnessed these deeds. McCutcheon's Creek was also called Cochran's Mill Creek, and later, Jacob Correll's Mill Creek.

Jacob Correll lived on the 300 acre parcel purchased from George Savitz. Here, Jacob operated a mill. The above lands account for the acreage upon which Jacob and Philip were taxed in 1796 (7).

    Jacob Correll 450 acres 1 White Poll
    Philip Correll 244 acres 2 White Polls

In 1795, David Shollenberger was granted land by North Carolina on the Rowan-Cabarrus County line to the south, and adjoining Jacob Correll to the north (8). David Shollenberger was Jacob Correll's brother-in-law, related through the marriage of Philip Correll to Sophia Shollenberger of Greenwich Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania (9).  David Shollenberger married Eve Smith, daughter of Everhardt Schmidt, of Rowan County, North Carolina (10). A son of Everhardt, Jacob Smith, married Christina Sholleberger, sister of David (11).

It is quite probable that David Shollenberger, along with sister Christina, and brother, Gerhart, made the move to Rowan County in the company of Philip and Sophia Correll, and possibly with Jacob Correll. In 1778, Gerhard Shollenberger, Sr., died in Greenwich Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Gerhard's estate was not settled in 1787 when the Berks County Orphan's Court approved one Philip Correll as Sophia Shollenberger's choice as guardian (12). Philip Correll was 28 years old and Sophia over age 14, just barely shy of 21. Philip Correll later became the husband of Sophia, and their first son, John Alexander Correll, was born in 1790.

In 1799 Sophia and David Shollenberger's brother, Gerhard Shollenberger, Jr, married Mary Correll, likely a sister of Jacob and Philip. That same year Jacob Correll divided his mill property on Cold Water Creek by selling 130 acres to his brother-in-law, Gerhart Shollenberger (13).

This indenture made the seventeenth day of April in the year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine, Between Jacob Correll of the County of Rowan in the State of North Carolina of the one part and Gerhart Shollabarger of the County of Rowan and State aforesaid of the other part, Witnesseth, that the said Jacob Correll for & in consideration of the sum of one hundred & fifty pounds to him in hand paid by the said Gerhart Shollabarger the receipt whereof the said Jacob Correll doth hereby acknowledge, hath given, granted bargained & sold ....unto Gerhart Shollabarger and to his heirs and assigns forever, all that tract or parcel of land situate & being in the County of Rowan and on the Waters of Cold Water Creek Beginning at a post oak on old corner to Jacob Correll's tract and running thence North forty four chains to a black oak sapling on the old line then south sixty two degrees west seventeen chains & twenty links to a post oak thence south thirty two degrees west fifteen chains & fifty links to a red oak sapling thence south twenty two degrees west about forty two chains to a black oak thence south two chains & fifty links to a hicory a corner of the old tract then east sixty chains to the first station containing by estimation one hundred and thirty acres and a half.....

By about 1810, Jacob Correll was over 55 years of age, and therefore, not titheable. He had added more land, including expanding the boundaries of the original 129 acre tract purchased from George Savitz, to over 279 acres. By now, he also owned the adjoining tract of 300 acres held originally by Jonas Brown, and which since had changed hands several times, before he obtained it from Andrew Shuping.

Elizabeth Correll, Jacob's daughter, married John Jacob Shuping on 3 April 1815 in Rowan County.  In 1822, Jacob Correll sold half of the old Jonas Brown tract to (John) Jacob Shuping Jr., his son-in-law (14).

A few weeks later, Jacob Correll sold the remainder of the Jonas Brown tract to John Sechler (15). John Sechler had married Christina  (Teny) Correll on 22 January 1819, suggesting that Tennie Correll was also a daughter of Jacob Correll.

The day before Jacob Correll sold the 100 acres to John Sechler, Jacob sold another of his tracts to his son John Correll (16).  The deed metes and bounds acknowledged the land sales above to John Sechler and Jacob Shuping.  Detailed analyses of the metes and bounds for the above lands prove that the same Jacob Correll was the seller, and was the same Jacob who purchased the land below from George Savitz in 1795. It originally was 129 acres, part of 279 acres of George Savitz. By 1822, Jacob had increased the land to 257 acres.

Jacob Correll was selling much of his land to his children, he still paid tax on 444 acres in 1823, which would have included the land sold to his son John. He also paid a Poll tax on one of his adult sons, either Daniel or Jacob Correll.

Jacob Correll continued to live on his mill land, the one-half of the Savitz 300 acres (the other one-half was owned by son-in-law Gerhart Shollenberger). Daniel was his youngest child and in 1822 he married Eleanor Pence. Daniel also lived on the mill land, for in 1841, Daniel Correll mortgaged this piece of land to Peter Deal as security on a loan (18). Peter Deal was married to Mary Ann Correll, grand daughter of Jacob Correll, the daughter of John and Elizabeth Castor Correll.
