Cora Lee (unknown maiden) MInchew & Ennis M Franklin

Classification: Query
Surnames: Minchew, Franklin
Cora Lee Minchew married as her 2nd husband, Ennis M Franklin, 27 Jun 1901 in Bossier Parish, LA (just E of Shreveport).

In 1900 she is 25 widowed & living in 282/284 Bossier Parish, LA as a boarder born 1875 LA with both parents also born in LA. With her are 3 children:

1. Archie W Minchew b 1893 LA (both parents born LA)
2. Sadonia b 1895 LA (both parents born LA) - this is Sedonia (Donie) Minchew
3. Alfred B (H?) b 1898 LA (both parents born LA)

Cora is again widowed on the 1930 Caddo Parish census. She lists her age as 51 on this census (b 1879) and with her are Alfred H Minchew & 3 children by Ennis M Franklin: Grady E b 1905, Marvin b 1906 & Andrew A b 1913.

Interestingly, on this census Cora states that her father was not born in LA as she stated in 1900, but in England and lists her mother as born in the US. It's possible one of the children provided this informtion to the enumerator, but I have no idea why the discrepancy in the place of birth of her father.

Can anyone give me some idea of what Minchew was her 1st husband & who his parents were?? Or do any of you know what happened to Archie W, Sedonia & Alfred B Minchew??

Thanks much!!
