Cora May Blystone was the daughter of Isaac Sherman Blystone and Emma Ann Clubb. Cora married Benjamin Harrison Campbell in 1904.

Together they had the following three children:

Bessie May Campbell (1906)
James Everett Campbell (1908)
Lois Emma Campbell (1910)

Cora and Ben divorced shortly after the birth of their third child in 1910. Neither Cora or Ben remarried.

Cora was a hard worker and worked hard to support herself and her three children. She worked many jobs to support them. She would get help from her family form time to time, when they were able to help. Cora was a expert needlewoman and was skilled at making both men and women clothing.

Cora Mae lived on her own with her children. She kept a heavy revolver under her pillow for protection which was given to her by her brother John. She kept the gun under her pillow until her last child left home. Family laughed about the time she even traveled one day on the bus, with the revolver in a paper sack with the intent to give it back to her brother.

Cora lived in Wichita Falls during the later years of her parents lives. Helping to watch over and take care of them. After her fathers death and before her mothers death, she moved in with her mother in the house on Brooke Street, helping to take care of her. She stayed in the house until her son~in~law, Lee Trigg bought acerage in Missouri and offered Cora a spare house. She then moved to Fordland, Missouri to be near her daughter and family.

Cora would travel by bus to visit her son, sister Norah and brother John in Southern California. The last trip she made she was in her 80's. She was known as a loving and caring mother.
