Remembering a cousin

Hello once again! Today, I wanted to take some time to remember a cousin that I never met. The cousin would be Lura Grace (Coon) Ellingham. Thirty-five years ago today, on 13 Jan 1980 [1], Lura passed away. Other than when she was born and died plus the fact that she was married to Roy D. Ellingham when she died, I unfortunately can not tell you much about her. She didn’t really know her father, Alfred R. Coon, because he died when she was only four years old. She grew up with her mother, my aunt Grace as her only parent. I should add that Lura was the first grandchild of William E. McCormack, my great-grandfather.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you learned something!
