Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Laura May COFER

Following Lincoln's death, Laura moved back in with her father in Decatur, Macon Co, IL where the census taker found her on 4/28/1910 as head of the house and listed Laura M, 40, a widow with her own income, her father Peter Cofer, 72 year old widower, Florence E, 14, and Buell L, 10, as well as step-niece, Leta Cornwell, 18.

At the 1931 Powell reunion, she signed the roster as May Powell Knight.

Some sources had 9/1962 as her death date, however, the date as posted is from the Powell family reunion notes.
