Cornell, James C.
American, active 1848
James Cornell raised prize-winning livestock, and owned the farm depicted in a painting (now in the NGA) by his friend, American naive artist and Quaker, Edward Hicks. Cornell was also part-owner of the bank at Newtown, Pennsylvania. The Cornell family bible, dated 1660, is preserved in Doylestown, Pennsylvania; the names inscribed in it show largely Dutch and French Huguenot ancestry. James Cornell's son Theodore and grandson, Russell Cornell, in turn inherited the Hicks picture of the family farm.
