Korn family name in use in 1849:This is the signature of Daniel Korn that is found in a 5.5" x 8.45" leather bound 1845 "Deutsche Kanzel" that was handed down in the Daniel Korns, Jr. family line to one of Allen Korns' descendants. I am not sure if this is the signature of the Senior or Junior Daniel Korns, but this proves that the "Korn" family name was still being used by at least one person in Southampton Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania as late as 1849.
This is the title page of the 5.5" x 8.45" leather bound 1845 "Deutsche Kanzel" that contains the 1849 Daniel Korn signature; this book was handed down in the Daniel Korns, Jr. family line. I have been told that "Kanzel" means "Pulpit" in English, and that this is a book of special sermons for the Reformed Church. Note the Corinthians Bible verse which is quoted. The King James version of this verse is "Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit."
