The Death Certificate issued in Marion Co IN for Leora states her birth date as Feb 1, 1880. She died of Liver Cancer.

Leora was six feet tall, with beautiful thick hair down to her waist and beautiful blue eyes. I have always wished I could have known her. Rest in Peace dearest Grandma, you will always be remembered.

Note: No tombstone. A planter was placed on Leora's grave by her Granddaughter Margaret Catherine (Warfield) Ross. Leora is buried between the graves of William O. P. Gard and Robert Baker. So many special thanks to Shannon for the pictures of my Gr-Grandma's gravesite.
