Dora Catherine Klumpp was born October 20, 1892 in New Orleans to John Klumpp and Antoinette Fresh (Fresch). Her parents died before she was 8 years old and she and her older sister Nettie were raised by her maternal grandparents, Joseph and Josephine Ferrell Fresh who lived in Hancock County, Mississippi. She was married three times and had two children.

Dora married first in New Orleans when she was 15 years old to William E. Pradat of Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi on September 21, 1907. They had one daughter:

1) Edith Pradat (born February 1909).

In 1910 Dora, William and daughter were living in Biloxi, MS where he was employed as a motoman by the Biloxi Electric Railway System. William died tragically later that year or early 1911. William's older sister Anna Pradat married William Mack Wolverton of Limestone County, Texas in New Orleans in 1902. In 1910, Mack and Anna Pradat Wolverton were still living in New Orleans where he was employed as a motorman for the New Orleans Transit System. It is highly likely that Mack met Anna through a friendship with her brother William when they both worked for the New Orleans Transit System. Anna either died or divorced Mack about the time that her brother William died.

Dora was married second to William Mack Wolverton (widower or ex-husband of her sister-in-law Anna) on April 08, 1912. They had one son:

1) William Thomas Wolverton (born Dec 23, 1912)

Sometime between 1935 and 1940, Mack Wolverton retired from the New Orleans Transist System and moved to a rural Lacombe, St Tammany Parish on the north side of Lake Ponchatrain where he was employed as a truck driver for a wholesale distribution company and as a night watchman. Dora and Mack divorced shortly after the 1940 Census. Mack died in 1946.

Dora married third when she was 50 years old to Henry J. Hillebrand about 1942 and moved back to New Orleans. Henry died in New Orleans in 1962. Dora lived another 16 years and died in New Orleans in November 1978 at the age of 86.
