Corlett, Earle and Irene (Kishman)

(Irene L. Corlett)

Bio Photo

Earle John and Irene Louise Corlett became residents of Bloomfield Twp. in Feb 1941, having been raised in Clayton Co. near Farmersburg, IA. Earle was born 12 Aug 1912 to Hale and Emma (Kaiser) Corlett. He was the oldest of 4 children. His siblings were: Robert (deceased); Hale, Jr.; and Kathryn.

The genealogy of the Corlett family in America would indicate their ancestors came to the frontier of Clayton Co. as early as 1856 and played an important part in the development of eastern Iowa.

Irene was born 7 Jan 1913 in Wagner Twp. near Farmersburg to George and Christine (Borcherding) Kishman. Her parents were farmers all their lives and were responsible for instilling in their children good work habits. Irene’s siblings were: Shirley (deceased), Landry (deceased) and Eunice. Irene’s father was born and raised south of Luana, IA and her mother was of a pioneer Guttenberg family. Earle and Irene purchased a 160 acre farm in Sec. 32 of Bloomfield Twp. south of Castalia; it became their home for 27 years. There they reared their children: Carmen, Wayne and Lowell. They settled in the area because the Castalia Savings Bank advertised farms for sale, and after careful consideration they chose their place — perhaps because of its locale and challenge. This was a most rewarding time in their lives. They gave of themselves in township and county activities, as well as in Zion Lutheran Church, Castalia, where comfort and solace through the years made trials and tribulations more
