It’s Family Time~Miss Cora Lee Deese

It's Family Time
Cora Lee Deese was born 18 August 1895 in Morven, Anson County. She was the second born child of John Calvin Deese and his second wife, Sarah Frances Gathings.

John Calvin’s first wife had passed away due to complications related to childbirth leaving him with 4 small children, all girls. The baby died a year later on the same day that her mother passed away.

Cora Lee remained unmarried throughout her lifetime. When I was a young teenager Aunt Cora and Aunt Lizzie lived on the road between Lilesville and it’s intersection with Highway 145 at the Paul Digg’s Store.  We often visited with the two sitting around drinking a cold glass of ice tea before we continued home.    

Aunt Cora, age 72, died on 16 April 1968 and was buried in the Morven Cemetery. Her death left Aunt Lizzie all alone on the olde  homestead and it was about this time that she went to live with her daughter and son-in-law in Alabama.

Cora Lee Deese is my GrandMother’s paternal half-sister. To me she was Aunt Cora.
