Cora L. Spence died in Jail 1922
I had an interesting find when i went to my public library here in Jacksonville, FL. They had obituaries for Elizabeth City, NC from 1919-1924 (i think) and I found my 2nd great grandmother listed.
'Cora L. Spence. A 56-year old colored woman of Newland Township, living about 13 miles from town, died last week after having grieved herself sick because she was placed in jail a day or two during the last term of Superior Court in this county, about three or four weeks ago.
