  • Notes 
    • This is the touching poem written by Cora's dear friend and neighbor, Mrs. Alfrey, in memory of her friend right after she died. This is just as she wrote it:.

      To the Mother, Sisters, Daughters of Cora Spruill, IN MEMORY OF CORA SPRUILL, To Her Loveing Family.

      ~GONE FISHING~.

      I went to see my nabour. Couldn't find her around. The place was very lonely and the dogie was in teers. Then her mother said (she's gone fishing).

      I walked along the Alley and she was diging worms. I asked what she doing and this is what I learned. (I'm going fishing).

      When Gabriel blows his horn, and I don't see her around, I'll just look up in the sky and say (my nabour's gone fishing).

      Sincerely your Nabour Alfrey.

      This poem was a lovely tribute to Cora from her friend who was inspired by Cora's love of fishing. The original is in Cora's bible. It was posted to the Eitel-Franks family Website, by her granddaughter S. Shaw, on March 21, 2009. Cora's family placed the words "GONE FISHIN'" on her tombstone when her young granddaughter, Susan, stood in her yard after she had died and said, "She's gone fishing.".
