The authors of this web site are descendent and relatives of John Corso. John immigrated to Iowa from Italy in 1914 through Ellis Island. This site is a work in progress. If you have any corrections, additions, or if you would like to add to the site, please email a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for more information and would appreciate input from readers. If you are related to someone that lived in Hocking, we would like to hear from you. Also, If you have additional pictures, we would appreciate a copy of those. This web site mentions John Corso many times. John was not a leader in Hocking, however he was one of the few that stayed in the area. John purchased most of the land that was Hocking, stayed in the area, and farmed the land.
Alex Hupton was a manager at the Hocking mines. Hisgrand-daughter, Kathy Cheney, provided these pictures.-Thank you!
This website is dedicated in loving memory ofLoretta Ann Corso (12/12/1931-8/4/2014). A wonderfulwife, mother, and grandmother forever in our hearts.
