|Birth: ||Aug. 27, 1904|
|Death: ||Aug. 6, 1977|
Mildred died in Spalding County as did her sisters Claudia Sanders Harris (1981), Edna Sanders Madaris (1994) and their mother, Jennie Tollison Sanders (1953). They also had 2 brothers, George W. Sanders (buried in Sandersville) and Charlie J. Sanders (buried in Bibb County), and one more sister, Willie Mae Sanders. At present, we don't know the burial site of Willie Mae but we know she married a man whose name was Nathan Burt. Both Willie Mae and Nathan died during 1928 of TB. At time of her death Mildred was survived by 2 daughters. They were listed as Claudine (Dean) Jennie Ray of Macon, Ga., and Billie Mae Brantley of Griffin, Ga. Also, Mildred's 2 brothers were living when she died. George, we now know, is buried in Sandersville, Ga., and Charlie, who was listed as living in Macon when Mildred died, was found to be buried in Bibb County, as mentioned above. When George died Charlie was listed as living in Tennille, Ga. [Some of this information is based on the obituary which appeared in the Griffin Daily News on 8-8-1977. RDB
Some public records (S.S. application, for example) indicate Frank Cawthon as Mildred's husband and father of her daughter Billie Mae Cawthon Brantley. However, a record of the marriage has not been found yet.
Report from a cemetery photographer: There is a record of Cora Cawthon being interred in Oak Hill Cemetery in Section E Block 2 #1 Lot 114. This is in a section of single grave plots and her plot is unmarked. I have a photo of the unmarked grave if you wish to have it.
