Maude Myrtle (Witt) Cornwell, second wife of William Washington "Will" Cornwell

Seeking information about Maude Myrtle (WITT) CORNWELL, second wife of William Washington "Will" Cornwell. According to 1910, 1920 census enumerations, she was born abt 1883 in NC. She married William Washington "Will" Cornwell March 24, 1910 in Cherokee Co., NC.

QUESTIONS:

1) Their last child (that I can find) was born to William Washington and Maude (Witt) Cornwell in 1927 in Cherokee Co., NC. He went on to marry a third time, to Candis Broom in 1938, so presumably, Maude Myrtle (Witt) Cornwell died between 1927 and 1938. Exactly when/where did Maude Myrtle (Witt) Cornwell die, and where was she interred?

2) In 1910, an individual recorded as Maude Witt was enumerated as a daughter in the Cherokee Co., NC household of William A. and Sophia Witt. Were William A. and Sophia Witt her parents? If not -- who?

Thanks so much for any help!
