* Information as above was taken from the Death Certificate of Cordelia "Caroline" Burleson Ray. ("Caroline" was added and was taken from her husband's Death Certificate).

* There is a difference in dates inscribed on the marker stone for Cordelia Burleson Ray, as to the information provided on her Death Certificate. To me the dates possibly appear to be on the marker stone as b. June 13, 1870 and d. May 19, 1931. Someone else may interpret differently.


Thank you to Jimmy Clinas Autrey II for visiting the gravesite of Cordelia "Caroline" Burleson Ray and her husband, Cornelius Ray. Also, very much appreciated is the very nice photo of thier marker stone with all the most beautiful flowers that has been provided to this memorial page that I have contributed to Findagrave.
