--If the bar is coloured it indicates where the evidence says he was or was likely to be during that time.
--If the bar has ?? it means that I have not discovered where he was during that time.
--If the bar is for a year rather than a month it means he was likely at that location until the date on the next bar.

The underlined text will take you to "His Story" starting at that point.

This site is dedicated to Cornelius John Soule, his life, his family, his endeavors and the period and communities where he lived and worked.

These pages are the beginning of what I hope will be a living book.  It will be expanded as time, space and information becomes available. 

My research into my great-grandfather began in 1992.  Since then I have discovered many fascinating things which I would like to share with you.  And I hope that some of you will be able to help me discover more.

If you have any information at all related to Cornelius or anything connected to him or his family I would love to hear from you.

the background was designed
by me to emulate old newspaper.
You are welcome to use it.
