Note: Miss Cora Black was born in Peoria Co., Ill., Sept, 13th, 1853. Died May 13, 1905, being 51 yrs, 8 mo, old. She was educated at the academy of the "Sacred Heart" of Peoria. Being of a pleasant disposition and having a happy greeting for all she secured many friends, She became a Christian and united with the Baptist church when quite young, and was devoted to its work as long as her physical strength lasted. Dr. Simon's of the First Baptist church of Peoria preached the funeral sermon. The text "She hath done what she could" is found in St. Mark 5-8.. This text was used for each of her sisters, Mrs. J. L. Brown of Peoria and Mrs. J. Calder of Ohio. A strange incident, each service preached at a different place by different preaches, yet all chose the same text. She was patient as only a Christian could be during her last illness which lasted six months. She leaves to mourn her loss her father, G. R. Black: three brothers, Chas. F., Judson H. and Lincoln J. and many friends. The Glasford Gazette, Glasford, Il. May 18, 1905
