Grandma Scott

Cora Viola Main was born December 1, 1897 according to the Social Security Death Index, her tombstone and also a funeral brochure I received when I attended her funeral.  She was born in Amos, Vernon County, Missouri according to the “Scott-Mayes” book and was known to everyone as Viola.  Her parents are John Lewis Main and Diana Anna Louisa Austin (Polly).  Her siblings are: Reuben Erwin, Sarah Elizabeth, George Sylvester, Ida Nevel, Clark Brewster, Jason Archie, Nettie Diantha and an unnamed brother who was either stillborn or died the same day he was born.  I need to locate a record to prove her birth place information.

Viola married Guy Calvin Scott on July 18, 1919 in Butler, Bates County, Missouri.  Their children are Evelyn, George William, Leona Frances (my mother) and two (2) living sons.

After Guy passed away, Viola was moved to a Care Home in Denver, Colorado.
