other family members that Cora Alice had several miscarriages too & that
if she wouldn't have lost those babies she would have had a total of 22

discovered that her 2 twins were still in her abdomen & had turned into
large tumors. Had this not happened she would have been one of
triplets & that was 2 more children for Cora Alice.)
