About Me

I  retired from Hillsborough Co., Tampa, Fl Schools as an Assistant Kindergarten Teacher in 2009.   After 24 years with little 5 and 6 year olds,  it's time to move on!   

I am married to John Corio  (47 yrs) ,  with two grown children - Angela 41 yrs old and Vincent 33 years old.  We have one grandaughter and another one due in August 2013 and   two step grandchildren.  They keep us very busy!

My hobbies are Genealogy and Jewelry making  -  Wire Art Sculpturing, . I have done several craft shows in the Tampa area at local church Boutiques. 

 I've also completed many binder books of family info and placed at Genealogical Society in Blair County, Pa.

 John and  I also do a lot of walking and traveling  since we are both retired. 

My "brickwall"  is Henry HUGHS/HUGHES b. c. 1800 in Ireland who married Martha Jane (unknown).  Henry could be a middle name that he went by - possible first name - James or John!    Martha may have a maiden name of "Davis" - my GGGrandfather was John Davis Hughs/Hughes b. 1825 in Centre Co., Pa.  He also lived in Huntingdon, Pa before finally settling in Altoona. 

My Huntingdon Co. names:  Hughes,  Hicks, Jackson, Westbrook, Simpson, Dougherty

About Me

I am researching the Blatt / Ealy / Cunningham /  Swoope families who lived in the Huntingdon area for generations.  My parents moved out West from Pennsylvania in 1940, consequently I do not know much about my Pennsylvania connections.


I discovered a civil war letter in my mother's effects after she passed away in 2009 and have been on the search to reveal the connection of the author (Cyrus G. Swoope) to my family.  We also have an old land deed, printed on sheepskin, dated 1789 and signed by Benjamin Franklin.  I am trying to find out more about this too. These finds have instilled in me a real desire to find out more about my family's ancestors.  


I am especially interested in finding the identity of the parents of my great, great grandfather, Gustaves Cunningham.  My grandfather,  James Cunningham, was married to Anna Mary Blatt.  They divorced in the 1930s so we have very little knowledge of the Cunningham side of our family.  I have found some info. but wish to know more.  James was also one of about 10-12 children and was a brother of Minnie Mertie Fisher and Harriet Fouse.  I would love to know more about his relatives, esp. sharing of any pictures.  I will be glad to share what I do have.
