I have a death certificate for one of Cora's daughters, Eola. Cora was married to Carl Desso according to the certificate. Eola was born in Louisiana in 1888 and the census for 1920 lists Cora's birthplace as NC. They all lived in Corpus Christi TX and presumably died there. Eola (married name Pilot) died in Corpus Christi. Birthdate for Cora and Carl about 1868-1870. He listed parents coming from Africa. so many questions and very few answers.
