Cora V. Davis was my first cousin twice removed, daughter of Josiah and Elizabeth Frances Powell Davis. Cora lived a short time past her first birthday. She is buried in Elk Run Cemetery in Elkton, Virginia along with her parents and other family members.
If I am reading the photo correctly, the tombstone is adorned with an ascending dove symbolizing that the soul has gone to heaven. Holding an olive branch means that the soul has reached divine peace.
Behind Cora’s tombstone is that of her sister Mary F. who also died as an infant.
