Okay family, this is a tough one.

We all know she came from Georgia, but when did she come to NC? Who did she stay with? Who were her parents, twin brother and sister? Was her last name really Burnette (poss. other spellings) or was it the name of the people that she stayed with when she was younger? WHY did she keep her family history a secret?

If anyone has a clue they would like to share, I would REALLY love to hear it. Cora Lee is an enigma!!!

You would probably get a better response from your family if you post this as a family discussion.

Anyhow, six million Geni users and Google are able to see your post, so there might pop up some help from others.

You can try to search for other info like birth date and maiden name at https://familysearch.org/ which will help you a lot to go further.

No one knows her history because she didn't talk about her family. So that wouldn't be any help. We're suspicious about her maiden name...it might not even be her real one. It could be the name of the people who took her in. And we do not know who those people are.
