The four unmarried Jacob Corrigal and Mary (Goodwin) Corrigal children: Charlotte; Elizabeth; Catherine and William, were always thought to have been decently buried within a close region of their late father's huge sarcophagus onto which their four death-dates and names are duly enscribed; however, on subsequent investigation the writer determined that these four unmarried children had been buried, beginning in 1890, in the new Cobourg Cemetery, with all four Corrigal bodies buried, two bodies in each of two unmarked graves. However, their burials are duly recorded in the Cobourg Cemetery's log book of grave sites. However, the two other buried Corrigal females are properly buried, with their respective husbands: Ann (Corrigal) Nourse is buried in the Cobourg Cemetery, and Mary (Corrigal) Scollie is buried in the Otonabee St Mark churchyard Cemetery. Jacob's wife remains buried where she died on 23 Sept 1823, at age 35, in the old HBC Martin Falls Cemetery beside the the Albany River. These, my ancestral females derive from Mistigoose (Ojicree native) Goodwin, to Mary (Goodwin) Corrigal, to Mary (Corrigal) Scollie, to Margaret Charlotte Corrigal (Scollie) Fowler who is my 1977 "discovered Metis" great grandmother who twice married my great grandfather Samuel Fowler; first, at Benton, Minnesota, in 1862, and secondly at Peterborough, Ontario, in 1872, with their first child, Alfred Herbert Fowler (b.1783-d.1948) born at Carver, Minnesota, my paternal grandfather, now buried in Kingston Ontario. .
