who since 1881 has been station agent of the D., L. & W. R. R. company in the village; and Mary Corey, who
married with John Brown, a merchant doing business in Owego. About 1880 Thomas Corey returned to Yates county where
he died in 1891. William Corey, who now lives in Waverly, married with Wealthy A. Hubbard and by her had two children,
Horace and Lionel Corey, the former now in Chicago and the latter in Waverly.
