George Valentine "Felty" Correll1,2

M, b. May 18, 1781, d. February, 1865
     George Valentine "Felty" Correll was buried at Correll Cemetery Family, 638 Union Valley Road, Riner, Montgomery Co., Virginia; Buried without a headstone. This cemetery happens to be on top of the mountain behind the house that Giles Radford CORRELL built (grandson of George Valentine "Feltha" Corell, and son of Henry Corell), on which property originally stood the three story log home built by George Valentine "Feltha" CORELL and his wife, Catherine WEAVER CORELL about 1810. This log home was moved, log by log, numbered etc, by Romer CORELL (son of Giles Correll) to his property in Union Valley, and was used as a "smoke house/storage building" for many years. It is still standing today (1999). Originally when George Valentine "Feltha" CORELL died in February of 1865, his wife Catherine had a grave dug in the field beside their home with the intention of starting a new CORELL Family Cemetery. The grave was dug the day before it was to be used and there was a terrible rain storm that night; the dug grave filled with water. Catherine refused to let George Valentine "Feltha" CORELL be buried in the water and demanded that he be taken to the highest point of their property and an cemetery there be placed. It is a beautiful spot when you get there, but you have to be part billy goat to make the climb to the cemetery.1
He Worked as an indentured servant in Norfolk, Virgina for 18 months to pay for his passage to the United States. After his work as an indentured servent, he worked in what is now known as Montgomery County, Virginia.2 He was born on May 18, 1781 at Germany.2 He married Catherine "Kate" Weaver on August 25, 1808 at Augusta Co., Virginia.1,2 George Valentine "Felty" Correll died in February, 1865 at age 83.1,2
