"Lewis Slate Coryell was born in 1788 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, to Joseph and Eleanor Coryell. In 1813, Coryell married Mary Vansant, and the couple had at least one son, Martin (1815-1886). By the 1820s, Coryell had moved to New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he developed a successful lumber business. In 1829, he served as county auditor and began developing what would become a lengthy political career in Pennsylvania. As a state politician, he came in contact with many national officials, including Presidents James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, and James Buchanan. Coryell died in New Hope in 1865."
