John M. Mills, age 17, married Cordelia Comstock, age 14 on 16 Jul 1889. J. H. Branson, JP. License was issued 15 Jul 1889.
I have found her name as both Cordelia and Cornelia.
According to Homer Marshall of Uniontown, Cornelia and Mort were breaking a horse to ride and she was kicked in the head and died.
There is a note in the manuscript file of John A. Comstock, that Cornelia's residence was Muscogee. This seems unlikely - perhaps her husband moved there for a time, but both are buried there in Crawford Co, AR. The place of residence was not in the book, so maybe J.A. Comstock also suspected this was an error.
