NOTES: She had blue eyes and brown hair, the same color as her daughter Carol's.
Cora was made her niece, Dorna Glidden's legal guardian on Feb. 13, 1939. 0 When John and Cora were discussing taking Dorna in, Cora was concerned that if Dorna and Marian both needed something - coats for example - at the same time, what would they do? (John and Cora were very poor although it was not obvious.) John was confident that God would provide what was necessary and so He did. The problem never came up. Carol remembers thinking of Dorna as another sister. Dorna and Marian were very close.
John and Cora were very poor. They took care of what they had, keeping everything clean and neat and enjoying simple pleasures. Evenings would often be spent playing card games, talking on the front porch, and eating popcorn and drinking the best homemade lemonade.
Cora knew how to do the "pegleg dance" which she had learned when she was young. It was a hard dance to do - one leg had to be kept stiff as the dancer hopped on it while doing complicated moves with the other leg.
