The GRG announces the age validation of Corinne Lambeth, nee Emerson, known as Cora to those who knew her. Cora was born March 19th 1884 in Illinois, USA, to Joseph A and Clara N Emmerson. She had at least two siblings. By 1900, the family were living in Morganfield, Union County, Kentucky. By 1910 they had moved again to Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee. At the age of 27, in 1911 or 1912, Cora married William Edward Lambeth, and they went on to have three children – A son and two daughters. By 1920, Cora and William were living in Roswell, Chaves County, New Mexico, with their first two children. On July 12th 1933, William sadly passed away, after which Cora did not remarry. At some point after 1950, Cora moved to Texas, settling in Alpine, Brewster County, Texas, where she was to later pass away. Cora died there on April 20th 1996, aged 112 years, 32 days. She was survived by all three of her children – her son lived to be almost 100, a daughter to 78 and another daughter to 100.

Cora’s age was verified by Daniel S, Jason King and Ilias Leivaditis, later accepted by the GRG with a retroactive date of July 18th 2016.
