Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Here is the story I found about our Cordner family called "THE CORDNER PALACE"
In Lurgen County, north of Belfast, Ireland which is a part of Scotland, called North Scotland, there was standing a Palace which belonged to the Cordners.The last name that I can ascertain who lived there was a William Corner, and so far as I know his descendents still live there.This Palace was still standing during World War II, in 1945, but the Government of Great Britain had taken it and turned it into an apartment house and taken the beaufiful and spacious lawns and gardens and turned them into truck farms.
