Birth: Feb. 2, 1872
Morgan County
Missouri, USA
Death: Apr. 28, 1954
Peace Valley
Howell County
Missouri, USA

Married Alfonzo 'Dob' Bennett 07/Mar/1889 at Howell Co., MO.
Dob and Cora were the parents of 13 children:
Lexie Ozell, Villa Lorene, Blanche Lee, Cordelia G., Franklin Alfonzo, Marvin Boyd, Fannie Ether, Charles Otis, Edna Cora, Opal May, Winnie Inez, Neva Madge, and Wayne Dee.

Per MO Death certificate #11921, burial 30/Apr/1954.

NOTE: Some people list Bond as Cora's birth name. When Cora was 4, she and her mother were living with her grandmother. All 3 were sleeping in the same bed one night when lightning struck and killed the grandmother. Cora and her mom ran to a neighbor's house. The mother later died of injuries from the lightning strike. Relatives came for Cora, but she didn't want to go with them and cried. So they left her and she was raised by a family named Bond. Wilson is the correct birth name.
