The top scan is from the book "Ten Nights in a Bar-Room and What I Saw There" by T.S. Arthur, undated (but originally published in 1854). The bottom scan is from the book "Life of Henry Ward Beecher". Both of these books are in the possession of a descendant of Allen Korns who would have obtained the book from Allen's family residence in Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW THIS WILLIAM C. KORNS FITS IN TO THE KORNS FAMILY? My guess is that he is probably the William C. Korns who was listed as a Cumberland, MD notary public in the 1936 Maryland Manual that was published by the Maryland Secretary of State, but I don't know how he fits into our Korns family.
He was listed in the Maryland Manual as early as the 1911 edition, and in that year he was listed as a Justice of the Peace. William C. Korns is also listed as the superintendent of thw water works in the 1913 Cumberland Directory. William C. Korns was also listed as an agent of the Adams Express Co. in the Bell Publishing Company's "Cumberland City and Allegany County Directory 1895-96".
