Birth: Jun. 3, 1890
Monroe County
New York, USA
Death: Jun. 19, 1897
New Mexico, USA


Died: at age 7 yrs, 16 days; meningitis olitis (inflammation of the meninges of brain and spinal cord, most often caused by a bacterial or viral infection)

Not one of the four Cory's has a headstone. Adah and Edson are buried side by side in one section, Seward is buried alone in another and Sumner is buried in a public space, nowhere near parents or brother. I found the place where Adah and Edson are and took a picture of the ground; did the same for Seward, but no chance of even finding where Sumner lies. There was just nothing to provide a clue except the section letter—the section (R-Glen) being mostly empty space with no markers.
