Laura, my grandmother, was the daughter of John Hilts (1842-1920) and Mary McWilliams (1856-1925).
She had one sister, Ida Mae (1885-1961), and one brother, Edson Wilbert (1891-1972).
Laura married James Cochran (1895-1974) and they had one child: Albert J. (1917-1974).
Laura had another child by a previous marriage: Marvin Paul Hilts (1910-1981) my father.
She and her husband James lived in Nixon, NJ. After James died in 1974 she moved to Elizabeth, NJ to be with her son, Marvin and her daughter-in-law Margaret (1912-1986) until Laura's death in 1974.
Her grave marker shows the date of birth as March 20, 1893 however the death certificate shows March 21, 1883.
