Lora's grave marker shows a dob of 7 Nov 1886. However, Lora's dob is 7 Nov 1876 in her obituary as well as in LDS transcribed death certificate records at :
Film number: 2117116
Digital GS number: 4028546
Image number: 74
Reference number: 55470
Collection: Texas Deaths, 1890-1976

In addition, Lora's wedding date in her obit is 1914. However, her grave marker says 30 Jan 1907 based on a transcription at From what I can see in the photograph, the grave maker seems to say 30 Jan 1907. Since I have no location, I haven't located a marriage certificate yet.
