  • Notes 
    • On January 28, 1864 from Schenectady, Cornelia penned a letter to President Abraham Lincoln that stated, in part,

      "Have you dear Sir thought you are the subject of more ardent, heartfelt prayer than perhaps any one in our whole country, it may be the world? How much, I long to hear you Sir are the decided Christian, openly espousing the dear Redeemers love, I cannot express.

      May our heavenly Father bless with enriching life-giving mercies and make eminently a blessing to this our afficted country.

      Dear Sir you are wearing the chaplet of honor and distinction but oh how 'lined' it has been 'with thorns'-- Oh fail not to secure the everlasting crown alway bright and without alloy--"
