    • excerpt of the McCorkell family notes, by Rev. Edmund McCorkell, source www.ramarahistoryonline.net (circa1971)
      Pete?s eldest, made his university course at the University of Minnesota, and within a few years became a highly successful insurance executive at Superior. He married Bernice Collins , and built a home for her, but died in early middle life of high blood pressure, leaving his wife with 3 children. Fortunately Bernice was a highly qualified teacher, able to hold good positions and to earn promotions. Above all she was a good manager and the children made steady progress. Mary, the eldest, eventually married Pat Byrnes, a public relations executive and now lives in Green Bay, Wis. with her husband and two children. Patrick McCorkell, Leo?s only son, is a college graduate, a Jesuit Seminarian, and hopes to be a priest in a few years. I shall be more than happy to bequeath to him my role as chaplain of the far-flung McCorkell family for baptisms, marriages, funeral and other sacred events. Kate McCorkell, the youngest of Leo?s daughters was a mere babe when her father died. She took her college course at Purdue University where she met her husband, Lieut. Thomas Weirs. They were married at Superior last August (1970) at a large family gathering and are now with the American Army in Europe.
