Not sure if this Cora belongs to them but it's possible. She could have married in a different County. She would have been 17 but that's not unusual either. She was the youngest child and probably anxious to get out of the parents house. Didn't find one for Josina, nor Elsie but they might have died young. There were a lot of Benjamin's but none in Coles or Cumberland County, and no Abram V. That's all I could find. Nancy
