Born: Ohio, 1827
Wife of Joel McCorkle. Born in Ohio, she may have been the daughter of Charles Earles of Virginia and Lawrence County OH, but there is no certainty. Charles Earles’ son Elisha was in the 1840 census for Hancock Co. IN, where Mary Ann was living in the 1850s.
In 1962 the DAR saw Mary Ann’s stone and recorded the inscription, “wife of Joel,” but it is no longer visible. Mary Ann married Joel McCorkle in Indiana in 1849. They lived in Jackson, Hancock County, Indiana, in the 1880s, and sometime in the 1890s came to Oklahoma, where she died in 1899. For more details, see Joel McCorkle, below.
