Cora Gillespie
Birth: Feb. 22, 1883
Franklin County
Georgia, USA
Death: 1925
Pickens County
South Carolina, USA

My Great Aunt

Cora was born to Henry Calhoun and Josephine Texas Gillespie. She had 2 brothers, Jones Onest Gillespie, an infant brother that died at birth, 4 sisters, Lou Gillespie, Zora Gillespie, Maude Gillespie-Gaydon and Mamie Gillespie- Melton.
Mother of: Lois, R.L.,Geneva, and Gladys. Lois died last December 2005. Aunt Cora, you only have one child living. the other children are now with you. Gladys, the baby girl is living in Gastonia,NC, and her health is good but she is showing early signs of severe memory loss.
Her Mother, Josephine Texas Gillespie died when she was young and she helped care for her sisters and brother.
She died after a very short illness.
Thank you very much Ann for the following information...
This is an actual death certificate--Ancestry has just added SC--
The only word I can make out as cause of death is hemorage and that is in the Secondary cause line.

UPDATE...Cora's baby child Gladys died last August, 2006.
Now all her children are with her in Heaven.
