    From Debra Payne I do know that Cora had a very hard time after her husband's death. She grieved for him the rest of her life. She was pregnant at the time of his death. My Grandmother Mattie Voleria Thomason West is still alive at 91. She has told me many stories of the life they were forced to live. Cora was encouraged to give her children away or to go to the Widows home in Shelbyville, TN. She refused to do it however and raised some pretty remarkable people despite her hardships.
