Cornie Easter Cottrell and Jerry Harber were married 15 June 1919 in Claiborne County, Tennessee.

The following was written by the youngest daughter of Jerry and Cornie on 5 February 2012:
Cornie Easter Cottrell Harber was born on December 27, 1900 in Lee Country, Virginia. Her parents were Will and Vinnie Cottrell. She was the first of ten children. She left home at the age of l5 to go work at a boarding home. She met her future husband to be Jerry Harber while working there. She married at the age of l8 and between then and the age of 40 years old she had ll children. In January 1941, her husband was killed in a mine accident in Virginia leaving her with l0 children, one had died at 9 months of age, and one on the way. Through these years of raising the children, she was a devoted, determined Mother who taught values and work ethics, not only by words, but by living in front of them the way she wanted them to attain these assets. She would not accept welfare as an entitlement. Her legacy was that of being a first class Mother who demonstrated to us that we are to earn our living, be honest, and treat others with respect and dignity. She will forever live in our hearts and minds.
