Ida May Corning

Founders Cemetery, Marker #32

(~1854-1875)

Ida May was born in Beaver River about 1854 and died there of consumption (tuberculosis) 17 May 1875, age 20. She shares a grave marker with her brother Jesse Corning.

There is also a foot marker “I M C.”

Ida May is descended from several families who have been in Nova Scotia a very, very long time. One ancestor of Ida May’s may have been William Knowlton, who’s grave marker in Shelburne is among the earliest for any English settler in Nova Scotia, it simply reads “William Knowlton, 1632“. Ida May is also descended from the Corning family – with her Corning ancestry going back through Jonathan Corning whose parents were Ebenezer and Abigail (Batchelder) Corning who came to Yarmouth Township in 1764 from Beverly, Mass. and settled in Overton.

More information about Ida May and her parents may be found in the Old Stones Family Group Sheet Index.
